For the ‘Little or Large’ project, I chose to create a 3D model house to display small valuable objects in a showcase, to create value for a high-end brand promotion.

‘Damaged Dress’

Progressed from

Simon Balle — GCSE

Statement

This projects focus was reform. Therefore, I decided to create a message in my design by using my dress as a symbol showing how even the most beautiful looking things can ruin the environment. This is a message which people need to realise.

‘Work those Nails!’

Progressed from

The Broxbourne School — GCSE

Statement

My showcase has four stage sets showing a range of ice-cream colours for summer nails for the ‘Little or Large’ project. I created tiny ladders to hold the figures, representing the skill of the trade adding value to the product.

Statement

For the ‘Little or Large’ project, the 1:200 scale matchstick model of Elizabeth Tower, which houses Big Ben, represents tradition with the aftershave bottle breaking through the pile of matchsticks beside it. This showcase display supports a high-end men’s fragrance brand.

‘Bright Elegance’  

Progressed from

Saint Nicholas School — GCSE

Statement

This project was based on down scaling and up scaling props. I decided to promote the brand Chanel as it represents elegance, class and glamour. However, I wanted to create more of an edgy design to appeal to a younger audience.

‘BIG UP YOUR LIPPY!’

Progressed from 

Simon Balle School — GCSE

Statement 

The ‘Little or Large’ project allowed us to either scale down or up. My showcase has both. I have created miniature shoppers trying to carry off a huge lipstick (60cm tall). I used the brand MAC as my focus, as it is iconic and appeals to a fashion-conscious audience in a fun way.

‘Fashion all Boxed Up for Spring!’ 

Progressed from 

St Mary’s C Of E High School — GCSE

Statement

The project ‘Little or Large’ inspired me to produce scaled-up roses in full-bloom, spilling out from a huge gift box for a high-end brand’s spring fashion promotion. I wanted to incorporate a soft, springtime colour scheme that looked fresh after a long winter.

‘Value Yourself!’

Progressed from

St Mary’s Catholic School — GCSE

Statement

The ‘Little or Large’ project allowed us to choose either to scale down or up. My little Pole Dancers are having fun with their high-end jewellery brand rather than performing for others; just the sort of prop that would grab the attention of a young, fashion-forward audience. I am interested in the empowering, strong and skilful sport of pole dancing that values the performer’s prowess rather than the sex trade version.
