Bon Voyage FRA!

Its the thursday before hand in and I am done! All printed and bound, I must say I didnt realise how big it would be once I printed it! I have really enjoyed creating my Mini Me Mulberry FMP, and I'm sad to see it all over! I am also going to miss the FRA, I've had such an awesome year, I've learnt alot by going out into real head office enviroments and have discovered the true job role of a BAA. I will also miss the lovely friends I have made and I hope to keep in regular contact with them once this course has come to the end. I am proud of of FMP and fingers crossed I get good feedback!

Bye FRA!
Au Revoir!

With just 3 weeks to go, the pressure is buiding and the stress levels are rising withing Group D! I am starting to source my range, which is obviously UK manufactured, starting with creating my pestel then moving onto creating my strategy. This week is said to be the worst within FMP as its when reality kicks in!
I must admit I am super stressing...I just hope I get it done!!!!

Mulberry Research

Earlier this week I contacted Mulberry by email to ask for any promotional goods or look books they could give me, I also asked if I could visit the Mulberry factory in Somerset 'The Rookery' to have a look around as part of my research. I wasn't expecting a reply, but they replied the same day and have sent me lots of look books and other bits and pieces. With my research developing I have almost finished my range, with just 5 handbags and a few accessories to finish. I hope to source my range this week!!!

This is the Mulberry SS12 campaign film. This is what has heavily inspired my range, just by watching this video you will completely understand my concept! Watch it guys!!!

My range

Hiya Guys! Since my last post I have been working on my range! I might even give you a sneak peak of one of my options in the range.I love the coulours withnin my 1970's Seaside trend, I think they are super fun and perfect for a girlswear range. I have also been working on my research file by visiting one of the Mulberry stores and asking for any additional promotional handouts to put in my book. Unfortunately they didn't have much, so therefore gave me an email address. I emailed this yesterday and I'm still waiting for a response! :) This week has been a very busy week, I had my mums 50th Birthday and one of my close pals is moving away for 3 months to travel with the olympics! Exciting stuff! Anyways as promised heres a sneak peak at an option from the swimwear category in my range!..Hope you like it!...

Lots of Love x

Final Decision

The past few days have been so busy! Everyone is starting to panic as we've only got 4 weeks to go until hand in day! AHHH!!! We had some more tutorials today and I had to change the amount of options for my Mini Me Mulberry range. The figures have decreased from 102 to 49, which is much better as the original concept was too keep it small and compact as it's new to Mulberry this SS12. I also discussed the fact that I wasn't going to now manufacture my range in the UK, which my teacher then explained that I should definately stick to my orignal concept as it all links with Mulberry being a British brand, and also this would mean me changing my SOI. So I am going to stick to the Mini Me Mulberry as a British Manufactured range for girls aged 3-10 years. FINAL! Over and Out!...
