The Future of Fashion with Alexa Chung (documentary series review / recenzija dokumentarnoga serijala)
Recently I discovered a series of documentaries Future of Fashion, presentedby Alexa Chung. I loved everything about it really. The production, the themes, the editing and the concept- everything was brilliant. Naturally, I also loved the presenter. This is Alexa Chung at her most adorable. Nevertheless, she also knew when to be serious and professional, depending on the theme and the context of the episode. I really feel that she has put her best foot forward. As a presenter she was very top of the game but I also loved how she included her personal experiences in fashion.
Nedavno sam otkrila dokumentarni serijal Budućnost mode kojega vodi Alexa Chung. Sve mi se u vezi ovoga serijala svidjelo. Produkcija, teme, montaža i sami koncept- sve je bilo savršeno. Naravno, jako mi se svidjela voditeljica. Alexa Chung je i inače jako simpatična, ali u ovom serijalu je stvarno preslatka. No, zna kada biti i ozbiljna i jako profesionalna, ovisno o temi i kontekstu neke epizode. Mislim da se doista potrudila. Kao voditeljica bila je sjajna, a svidjelo mi se i kako je uključila svoja osobna iskustva u modnom svijetu.
The documentary is very relavent. Whatever it discusses, it and goes straight to the point. This documentary tries to answer very specific questions and because of that, it is quite serious at times. However, there is also humour in it. The editing is amazing. I loved the music as well. It just all feels very positive and uplifting. I'm sure it could be an inspiring and motivating series even to those that aren't interested in fashion. If you're interested in fashion, well then it is perfect. There are many episodes and they focus on different themes and issues.
Dokumentarac je jako relevantan. Što god da raspravlja, odmah prelazi na bitno. Nastoji odgovori na jako specifična pitanja i zbog toga je na trenutke dosta ozbiljan, ali u njemu ima i humora. Montaža je sjajna. Popratna glazba mi se jako svidjela. Sve mi se nekako čini pozitivno i motivirajuće i doista mislim da bi moglo motivirati i nekoga koga ne zanima moda. Ako vas zanima moda, onda je jednostavno savršen za vas. Ima puno epizoda i sve su usmjerene na različite teme i probleme.
I heard some people argue that the series isn't exactly realistic because it was made by British Vogue, but I disagree with it. It is not about British Vogue at all. It tries to promote fashion (and British fashion) , but isn't that normal? To me it seems like a high quality documentary. What is wrong with explaining the dynamics of the fashion world? Why not interview University professors who teach Fashion Law or Fashion psychology? Those are the woman who are trying to make the fashion world more ethical and diverse. The fact is that the fashion is a billion dollar industry in UK. With the unemployment being as high as it is, what is wrong with encouraging people to find work in fashion? A lot of people want to work in fashion. This series explains how to go about it. Perhaps it inspires someone to start their own business or to find work in the fashion- that would be great!
Neki ljudi govore da ova serija nije posve realistična jer su je snimio Britanski Vogue, ali ja se ne slažem s tim, jer se uopće ne radi o tome. Naravno da pokušava na neki način promovirati modu, posevbno britansku modu, ali to je normalno, zar ne? Meni se ovo čini kao kvalitetni dokumentarac. Zašto ne bi netko objasnio kako funkcionira modni svijet? Zašto ne napraviti intervju sa sveučilišnim profesoricama koja predaju modno pravo ili modnu psihologiju? To su žene koje pokušavaju učiniti modni svijet raznolikim i više etičkim. Istina je da je moda u UK jedna od najisplativijih industrija i jako je bitna za njihovo gospodarstvo, pa zašto ne bi potakli ljude da rade u toj industriji, pogotovo jer puno njih to želi, a ne zna kako. Puno ljudi želi raditi u modi i ako im ovo pomogne da nađu svoje mjesto i ako se smanji nezaposlenost, to je sjajno.

I found all of the episodes to be very informative. They're professionally filmed and well developed. I really think that this series provides a unique view into the world of fashion. It is something that needed to be done. To conclude, I do recommend watching at least one of the episodes. If you have time, watch them all. Great production and meaninful content! We need more documentaries like this one. That would be all. I selected a few episodes that I liked the most. You can find them all here (link to British Vogue youtube page). You can watch them separetely or you can watch the full documentary.
Mogu reći da su me se sve epizode ostavile dojam informiranosti, profesionalnosti, te su dobro smišljene i snimljene. Stvarno mislim da ova serija dokumentaraca pruža jedinstven pogled u modni svijet. Trebalo je nešto ovakvo snimiti. Da zaključim, preporučavam da pogledate barem jednu epizodu, a imate li vremena, pogledate ih sve. Odlična produkcija i kvalitetan sadržaj. Treba nam više takvih dokumentaraca. To je sve za danas. Izabrala sam par episoda koje su mi najviše svidjele. Možete ih sve pronaći ovdje (poveznica na youtube profil od britanskoga Vogua). Možete ih gledati posebno ili cijeli dokumentarac zajedno.
What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway.
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets.
1. START WITH ACCESSORIES
If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…
I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
