BBC Radio London with Salma and Lionheart

BBC Radio London with Salma and Lionheart.
22.30pm Thursday night.
.
Chatting about how the perceptions of the perfect body and young women's positive body image has been dramatically and adversely affected with the advent of social media, especially over the last 10 years. . 
.
Back in the day - in the 1970s, the decade in which my novel "Secrets in the Dark" is set - young women would have scrutinised their bodyshapes in the mirror, wishing they could have been slimmer, taller or even bigger breasted - looking more like their favourite model or pop star - and addressed their issues with a dramatic diet or some slimming pills. 

They never had the pressure of negative online peer judgement and the skewed perceptions of online reality versus real life,  causing comparison anxiety, unrealistic ideals of perfection and mental health issues.

Ian Wright MBE styled and art directed by me for a photoshoot back in the day- 20 years ago

Ian Wright MBE styled and art directed by me for a photoshoot back in the day- 20 years ago  when I was a celebrity stylist. 
Doesn't time fly? 
.
I still work with celebrities but now get the most pleasure in being able to help my non-celebrity clients look and feel their best:  with advice on how to be the best versions of themselves: With self confidence, self esteem, body confidence, positivity, a healthy lifestyle and good mental health.
.
The photoshoot was photographed by @nickyjohnston at @addingtonpalace
.
Ian was such a lovely man and a pleasure to work with. .
I thought I'd post these pix as Ian can be currently be seen on @itv

Mary Quant at the V&A part 2.

Mary Quant at the V&A part 2.
.
The thing that really stood out to me was how different the fabrics were that we wore then to now.
Much more rigid and flexible and quite bulky.
.
These video clips include:
The Daisy dress up doll ( I remember I had one of the cut out and paste books of these as a child.)!
1960s sportswear Quant style 
The mini Quant wore to collect her OBE
The jersey dress ( the first time stretchy jersey had been used as a clothing fabric) 
The Quant collection of everything from tights to sunglasses to makeup
The cape 
Dresses with matching frilly pants
The journey of the mini from knee to very short.

The Mary Quant retrospective at the V&A museum.

The Mary Quant retrospective at the V&A museum. 
The first of 2 posts of 10 video clips and photos.
Such an iconic designer that not only created fashion history in the 1960's but changed how girls dressed-no longer like their mothers.
Fashion was suddenly fun.
Quant personified swinging London and the Kings Road Chelsea .
