'There has been a debate about print magazines dying and digital media overpowering the markets but it’s just about the competition'
- Fword, 2015.
'We need to adapt our approach and take a 360 degree way of looking at things. Print and digital are complimentary and not rivals in a way' FWORD, 2015.
'Though there has been news of immense reductions in publishing and circulating expenses, a set of new independent niche magazines are turning the tables and enthusing a new life in the print media' - FWORD, 2015.
Negotiated brief - OPIA
Opia was a bridal wear brand that I developed as part of the level 5 fashion retail course. For the project I developed the brand concept, styled and produced images to represent the brand and produced a display that would be presented at a bridal fair.

How will Brexit affect your finances?
Available: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36537906 [Accessed: 13th Oct 2016]
In terms of viability in regards to securing a sustainable career, should the initial Idea of producing and releasing a bridal magazine fall through the development of skills such as creative writing, blogging, knowledge of the bridal wear industry and its needs and knowledge of the editorial industry and it's needs means that I would have the skills to fall back on either a career in retail or editorial work.
How will this improve the current sector?
The current economy, particularly in regards to britain recently leaving the european union means that the value of the pound is expected to decrease dramatically. It will become harder and more costly to import goods from europe. It is also predicted that wages could 'drop from anywhere between 2.8% and 4% lower' (Milligan, 2016) causing the average worker to be £780 a year worst off.
With the current economical crisis, the uncertainty of inflation combined with the potential decrease in wages It's no surprise that people are choosing to be cautious with their finances. It's common talk that people are being frugal and thrifty due to the uncertainty of the actual effect that 'brexit' will have.
