High Street Dreams

My partner has just started an Open University course in Business studies and, as part of the course, has been advised to watch a program on BBC 1 on a Monday night at 9pm called HIGH STREET DREAMS.
We have now watched this for 3 weeks and are totally enjoying the series.
In the program Jo Malone and Nick Leslau are helping 8 individuals to achieve their ambition to get their handmade products into a high street store.
This week inparticular i loved Beryl Ware who had knitted some beautiful scarves with the aid of her "nanas" knitting team. It was a lovely story behind the scenes and you watched how her mentor pulled apart the scarf and taught Beryl about fashion before putting her to pitch her goods infront of buyers for top fashion store Jigsaw.
After an agonising wait the viewer then watched in delight to see Beryl getting her first order.

If you haven't seen the program it's well worth a watch and this weeks episode is still available on BBC I Player for another 3 days.


  1. Ooh I love this programme and Jo Malone has become my new idol! Will be really sad when this series ends hope they do another Elissa

  2. I saw this episode on Monday for the first time and I hope to see more as it was very interesting. Great work produced by both makers I think. Marie x

  3. I've been watching this too, I'm really enjoying it, its so inspirational for us. I'd love to be given some of those opportunities! Next weeks episode should be good, its about homeware :)

  4. I totally love this programme, Jo Malone is my hero! CM x
