Editors' Note: Edition 6

(April 06, 2010)

Welcome to the sixth edition of cylchgrawn
Culture Cymru

In this edition we have a very amusing article written by PR specialist Vivienne Sharman-Lewis, a regular contributor, who regales us with tales from the field, focusing on the back-stage excitement and organization which goes into a charity fashion show. I defy you to read Vivienne's article and not feel part of the event.

We look at the fashion for retro vases and how they can transform the look and feel of any home. Drawing inspiration from Whitefriars, Holmegaard and Stromberg, we compare them with the modern-day, high street alternatives and ask: 'retro verses high street - which to choose?'

We also have an article contributed by Robert Wade. Lawyer Robert discusses the issue 'copyright right or wrong': a fascinating look at the pros and cons of copyright law and its effect on artists' freedom of expression. This is the first of many articles we look forward to welcoming from Robert.

At Cymru Culture we are approached regularly by journalists wishing to contribute to the magazine. In this edition we are pleased to present an article on Spring/Summer fashion accessories and trends,
written by young journalist Caitlin Anderson - the first of many such articles that we look forward to featuring by this budding writing talent.
Following on from Caitlin's article, we have pulled together a selection of pieces from friends of Cymru Culture which epitomise the feel and influences outlined in Caitlin's article. We have pieces from Caregos Couture Jewellery, art glass designer Anne Collins and handbag designer Gaynor Davies-Howell.

Lastly, we have an interview with the exciting new designer Kelly Goss, with pictures showcasing her new designs forming part of her Rock 'n' Needle fashion range. Kelly tells us how she got started, what influences her work, and her hopes for the future. The article on this talented designer is a fascinating read, and the images of her work are quite stunning.
