Dolly Peg's Vintage - Blog Start

M y mother came to visit me last week and we discussed her ideas for her webpage and what she would like to ultimately get out of it. She had originally wanted some online presence with the shop and educate people on the history of the clothes and memorabilia. She didn't want to sell her items or advertise them for sale and she explained how she liked giving them new homes and helping out events and fashion shows.

The more we talked about her future and what she was doing with the her charity the sunshine village in Egypt the more she realised that she needed to sell her items to give them new homes and make some money so she could go and visit Egypt more often.

With that we brainstormed on what the site could look like, what different tabs she would need for her items and the style and the look of the site. She now wanted a jukebox style page as someone had offered her one for her shop and linked to her Facebook page as well as affiliate with other places like Reddish Mill and the sunshine project.

The idea is for her to upload the item she owns, a brief history of what it is and where it came from and a link to contact her in regards to viewing or purchasing the item.

 I will start off the uploads and give her a tutorial on how to maintain the site and upload even from her mobile phone.

Below are a few images, I built the jukebox in Maya, textured and took a render, it hasn't added a great deal to the look, but allowed me to play with the lighting to recreate the image.
