-# DELIBES: FLOWER DUET #

0:00:420:00:44

-This is a duvet cover,

-from Brixton Market.

0:01:070:01:10

-Come on, girls! Lovely duvet covers!

0:01:110:01:14

-I bought it

-and turned it into a trouser suit.

0:01:150:01:19

-I still like it.

0:01:190:01:20

-I made it many moons ago.

0:01:210:01:22

-I wear it when I'm at the seaside

-and people compliment me on it.

0:01:220:01:26

-It's colourful, isn't it?

0:01:270:01:29

-Colour is very evident...

0:01:310:01:34

-..when you enter

-Olwen Davies's home, in Penparcau.

0:01:340:01:38

-The house is full of clothes

-made and collected by Olwen...

0:01:400:01:44

-..during her fascinating and varied

-80-year lifetime.

0:01:440:01:48

-Your whole house

-is a walk-in wardrobe!

0:01:500:01:53

-It's certainly true of this room.

0:01:530:01:55

-Yes. All the rooms are like this!

0:01:550:01:58

-From time to time,

-I put the clothes in cupboards.

0:01:580:02:01

-I can't believe

-I have so many clothes.

0:02:030:02:05

-Every item brings back memories.

0:02:110:02:13

-They're like children to me.

0:02:130:02:15

-I look at articles and think...

0:02:160:02:18

-.."Oh! That's where I bought that"

-or "Oh! I wore that there."

0:02:180:02:24

-My clothes

-definitely bring back some memories.

0:02:240:02:27

-Olwen grew up in Wales

-and in London.

0:02:310:02:34

-She went on to study music and she

-became a singer and a translator.

0:02:350:02:39

-She divided her time

-between London and Rome.

0:02:400:02:43

-Olwen moved back to Wales

-to retire...

0:02:460:02:48

-..and she became

-a leading member of CND Cymru.

0:02:490:02:52

-When I was in Covent Garden...

0:02:530:02:56

-..I spotted this dressing gown in

-a gentlemen's outfitter in Victoria.

0:02:560:03:01

-There are red dragons on it

-and I loved it.

0:03:010:03:04

-When I moved back to Wales and

-started to go on peace protests...

0:03:050:03:10

-..I gave it a padded lining.

0:03:100:03:12

-It was the ideal coat to wear

-to London, Greenham Common...

0:03:120:03:17

-..and to pop to town on

-a shopping trip during the winter.

0:03:170:03:21

-There it is - the Welsh dragon.

0:03:230:03:25

-It's the colour of fire and

-your flame certainly burns brightly.

0:03:250:03:30

-Yes. When I do something,

-I do it with passion.

0:03:310:03:35

-I feel passionately

-about certain issues.

0:03:350:03:38

-I'm passionate

-about the peace movement...

0:03:380:03:41

-..and about the terrible things

-that go on, across the world.

0:03:420:03:46

-The arms trade - "We arm the

-dictators and bomb their people".

0:03:460:03:51

-We must do something.

0:03:510:03:52

-Children die of starvation

-and disease every day.

0:03:530:03:56

-It's wrong.

0:03:560:03:58

-We really must change things.

0:03:580:04:01

-You're passionate about world issues

-and you're passionate about clothes.

0:04:160:04:22

-You love your clothes, don't you?

0:04:220:04:24

-You love your clothes, don't you?

-

-Yes, I do.

0:04:240:04:26

-It's amazing what you can achieve,

-with a bit of creativity.

0:04:260:04:31

-The fabric is the important thing.

0:04:310:04:34

-If you have good fabric,

-you can create something unique.

0:04:340:04:38

-Nobody else has items

-like the ones in my wardrobe.

0:04:380:04:42

-I certainly don't think

-anyone has an outfit like this one.

0:04:440:04:48

-This was a present.

-I was in South Africa.

0:04:480:04:51

-I have a Wales Anti Apartheid shirt,

-of course.

0:04:520:04:55

-The hat and the scarf are the kinds

-of things they wear in South Africa.

0:04:550:05:01

-We taught them to sing...

0:05:010:05:03

-# Drop not bombs is our desire.

-We don't want a nuclear war #

0:05:030:05:07

-They taught us to sing a song

-in isiZulu.

0:05:080:05:11

-SHE SINGS IN ISIZULU

0:05:120:05:15

-It meant "You, woman,

-can become a Member of Parliament."

0:05:230:05:28

-This room

-is just one of your wardrobes.

0:05:360:05:39

-You have another roomful of clothes,

-don't you?

0:05:400:05:43

-Let's take a look at that room, too.

0:05:430:05:46

-First, let's flap our...

-what are they called?

0:05:460:05:49

-Ventalio.

0:05:490:05:51

-Oh, these come in handy in Rome.

0:05:510:05:53

-The dress you're wearing

-matches your blue eyes.

0:06:240:06:28

-You wore this

-to your birthday party, didn't you?

0:06:280:06:31

-How old were you?

0:06:310:06:33

-How old were you?

-

-I was 80 years old.

0:06:330:06:34

-I had my party at the Arts Centre.

0:06:340:06:37

-This was made by Bella,

-my dressmaker in Rome.

0:06:390:06:42

-I lived in Rome and I came back

-to England occasionally...

0:06:430:06:47

-..and I'd buy fabric in John Lewis.

0:06:470:06:49

-I took this material back to Rome,

-many years ago.

0:06:500:06:54

-This dress

-must be 40 or 45 years old.

0:06:540:06:57

-It's timeless.

0:06:570:06:59

-You wore more than one dress

-at your birthday party.

0:07:000:07:03

-You changed,

-at the end of the evening.

0:07:040:07:07

-Yes.

-I changed into this black dress.

0:07:070:07:09

-I crocheted the red collar.

0:07:100:07:11

-It adds a bit of life to the dress.

0:07:120:07:14

-I wear my jet necklace

-with this dress.

0:07:150:07:18

-I was in Whitby in 1949,

-appearing in 'Out of the Blue'.

0:07:190:07:23

-Whitby is famous for its jet.

0:07:250:07:27

-I earned around 15 a week.

0:07:270:07:30

-My husband earned something similar.

0:07:300:07:33

-I was determined

-to buy a Whitby jet necklace.

0:07:330:07:36

-I found that one.

0:07:360:07:38

-I think I paid

-something like 25 for it.

0:07:380:07:42

-I was in Whitby last year

-and I saw a similar necklace.

0:07:430:07:47

-If I bought it today,

-it would cost around 800.

0:07:480:07:52

-What a fantastic investment!

0:07:530:07:55

-Yes. The man in the shop told me

-it's hand-crafted and hand-carved.

0:07:550:08:00

-Nobody makes them, any more.

0:08:010:08:03

-Peacock! I'm a peacock!

0:08:050:08:07

-I'm beginning to believe you.

0:08:100:08:12

-People ask,

-"What are you going to wear?"

0:08:120:08:15

-"You do look nice."

0:08:150:08:17

-That's when the feathers come out.

0:08:170:08:20

-That's when the feathers come out.

-

-Yes, that's right.

0:08:200:08:21

-Let's hope Olwen Davies's

-colourful peacock feathers...

0:08:240:08:29

-..keep coming out

-for many years to come.

0:08:290:08:32

-Nicola Pilkington

-is only 18 years old...

0:08:530:08:56

-..but she has already developed

-her own, unique style.

0:08:570:09:01

-I love walking into a room and

-seeing people looking at my clothes.

0:09:020:09:06

-I'm different.

0:09:060:09:08

-Of all the wardrobes I've seen,

-this has to be the most unusual.

0:09:140:09:20

-What gave you the idea

-of storing things like this?

0:09:200:09:23

-When I had a normal wardrobe,

-I used to stuff everything in there.

0:09:240:09:28

-I had no room

-and I couldn't find anything.

0:09:290:09:32

-I pair colours together

-but I still couldn't find anything!

0:09:320:09:36

-This has made life easy.

0:09:370:09:38

-I'm surprised. Everything within

-a block of colour blends into one.

0:09:400:09:45

-I'm used to it and I recognise

-the different fabrics and textures.

0:09:450:09:51

-I know where everything is

-and I know what I've got.

0:09:510:09:54

-Black is an exception to that rule.

0:09:550:09:57

-Black is tricky.

0:09:570:09:59

-You have to pull everything out!

0:09:590:10:01

-I was a tomboy when I was young.

-I wasn't into fashion.

0:10:130:10:17

-My friends matched colours

-but I didn't.

0:10:180:10:21

-The school uniform we wore

-was really restrictive.

0:10:220:10:26

-I didn't want to look

-like everyone else.

0:10:270:10:30

-I like people to notice my clothes.

-I want to stand out.

0:10:300:10:34

-How would you describe your style?

0:10:370:10:39

-I never wear the same thing

-two days on the trot.

0:10:400:10:44

-Sometimes I wear something feminine

-and sometimes something grungy.

0:10:440:10:50

-It depends on how I feel or

-what sort of weather we're having.

0:10:500:10:54

-Colour has huge relevance, for me.

0:10:550:10:57

-Do you choose one colour

-or a combination of colours?

0:10:590:11:02

-Sometimes, I wear a single colour

-and sometimes I combine colours.

0:11:020:11:07

-I wear unusual colour combinations.

0:11:070:11:10

-You have four pairs of boots of the

-same design, in different colours.

0:11:350:11:40

-These trainers

-are all the same, too.

0:11:400:11:43

-Yes. If I find something comfortable

-I buy it in every available colour.

0:11:430:11:49

-It makes it easy because

-I know they fit and how they look.

0:11:490:11:53

-It's easy to adapt to different

-colours of the same design.

0:11:540:11:58

-I buy lots of things

-from charity shops.

0:11:580:12:01

-My trainers weren't very expensive.

0:12:010:12:04

-I like things like this.

0:12:040:12:06

-I bought it in a charity shop.

0:12:060:12:08

-I wear this as a top.

0:12:080:12:09

-You just wrap it around yourself?

0:12:110:12:13

-Yes - like this.

0:12:130:12:15

-Yes - like this.

-

-Let me try.

0:12:150:12:16

-Aren't you worried it'll fall down?

0:12:180:12:21

-No, I'm confident.

-I wear them all the time.

0:12:210:12:24

-I don't worry about it.

0:12:240:12:26

-I bought these Evisu jeans

-from a charity shop.

0:12:380:12:41

-They're brand new

-and they cost 3.50.

0:12:410:12:44

-They'd be around 100, in the shops.

0:12:440:12:47

-I cut things up, like that.

-It's easy.

0:12:470:12:50

-If I mess it up, who cares?

-They're cheap.

0:12:500:12:53

-This is lovely.

0:12:550:12:56

-This is lovely.

-

-I bought that in Iceland.

0:12:560:12:58

-My uncle lives there.

0:12:580:12:59

-He's an artist

-and I studied his work at college.

0:13:000:13:03

-I visited him

-and I went shopping, too!

0:13:040:13:06

-I bought lots of really unusual

-fabrics there, too.

0:13:080:13:12

-Texture is important to me.

0:13:120:13:14

-These materials

-are quite old-fashioned.

0:13:140:13:17

-This is a top.

0:13:180:13:20

-It's an interesting fabric.

0:13:210:13:23

-If you scrunch it up,

-the creases stay in the material.

0:13:240:13:28

-Great! There's no need to iron it.

0:13:290:13:32

-My friends think I'm nuts.

0:13:360:13:38

-They're used to it.

0:13:390:13:40

-We go out for a drink

-and I'm over-the-top.

0:13:410:13:44

-I know I'm over-the-top

-but I can't be normal.

0:13:440:13:48

-I needed something to wear

-to a New Year's Eve party...

0:13:510:13:55

-..so I bought this silver catsuit.

0:13:550:13:57

-It's hideous!

0:13:570:13:59

-It looked fine on the internet.

0:13:590:14:02

-You don't wear this

-to go down the pub?

0:14:030:14:06

-I want to but people stop me!

0:14:060:14:08

-Can you see yourself making a living

-from clothes and fashion?

0:14:140:14:19

-I'll do an arts foundation course

-in Bangor next year.

0:14:190:14:23

-The next step then is to study

-fashion design, in London.

0:14:230:14:28

-Fingers crossed,

-if I work hard enough.

0:14:300:14:33

-What will you include

-in your collection?

0:14:340:14:37

-Everything. I like all sorts

-of styles, as you can see.

0:14:370:14:41

-I like patterned fabrics

-and plain fabrics.

0:14:410:14:44

-I want to keep adding

-to my collection...

0:14:440:14:47

-..and pick up ideas wherever I go.

0:14:470:14:50

-If you come back in a few years,

-everything will have changed.

0:14:540:14:58

-I never stand still.

0:14:590:15:01

-888

0:15:100:15:10

-888

0:15:100:15:12

-Things will change...

0:15:310:15:32

-..but the 1970s was the important

-decade for me, regarding clothes.

0:15:330:15:37

-Performer, Marc Rees,

-grew up during the 1970s.

0:15:410:15:44

-The experiences he had

-during that decade...

0:15:450:15:48

-..shaped his character, his home

-and his wardrobe.

0:15:490:15:53

-When did you form your

-special relationship with clothes?

0:15:530:15:57

-I had a special relationship

-with clothes, even as a young boy.

0:15:580:16:02

-I wanted to express myself

-by dressing up.

0:16:020:16:05

-I remember dressing up

-as Demis Roussos or Kate Bush...

0:16:060:16:10

-..and putting on performances

-for my family.

0:16:100:16:14

-That then rubbed off

-on my choice of day-to-day clothes.

0:16:140:16:18

-Has performing

-always been in your blood?

0:16:210:16:24

-Yes. Always.

0:16:240:16:25

-I've always used costumes

-for my performances.

0:16:260:16:29

-I create stage costumes.

0:16:300:16:32

-Much of your performance work

-is autobiographical.

0:16:330:16:37

-Is that reflected in your clothes?

0:16:370:16:39

-Is that reflected in your clothes?

-

-Yes, because my work is inspired

-by my home - the Swansea Valley.

0:16:390:16:44

-I go back to my parents' house,

-in Alltwen...

0:16:440:16:47

-..and look through the contents

-of the cupboards or the attic.

0:16:470:16:53

-I find clothes I wore as a child

-or a 1970s suit.

0:16:540:16:57

-Such discoveries

-inspire new pieces of work.

0:16:590:17:02

-You tell the truth, through clothes.

-Doesn't that make you vulnerable?

0:17:100:17:15

-Yes, of course, that's true.

0:17:150:17:17

-My work is all about identity

-and sexuality.

0:17:180:17:21

-That comes to the surface by wearing

-clothes and through nakedness.

0:17:220:17:28

-I do a lot of work either naked

-or wearing just a pair of pants.

0:17:290:17:34

-This is the spare bedroom

-and this is my wardrobe.

0:17:350:17:39

-It's small.

0:17:390:17:41

-There aren't many clothes in there.

0:17:410:17:44

-The first thing I'd like to show you

-is this special pair of pants.

0:17:440:17:49

-I wore them

-when I was eight years old.

0:17:490:17:52

-I don't think they fit me any more.

-I won't try them on!

0:17:520:17:56

-There's a poignant story

-linked to these.

0:17:560:17:59

-I was eight years old and I was

-getting changed, for a PE lesson.

0:17:590:18:04

-The girls were getting changed

-into their knickers and vests.

0:18:040:18:08

-I ended up in my pants

-and everyone started to laugh at me.

0:18:090:18:13

-The teacher started to laugh at me,

-really hysterically.

0:18:130:18:17

-She paraded me around the school,

-in my pants.

0:18:170:18:21

-She made me walk across the yard

-and into the classrooms.

0:18:210:18:25

-That was

-an extremely traumatic experience.

0:18:260:18:30

-I think that's why I now spend

-so much time performing in my pants.

0:18:300:18:35

-I perform a lot, either in my pants

-or completely naked.

0:18:350:18:39

-A lot of these items

-are linked to my childhood.

0:18:400:18:43

-I shave my head, these days...

0:18:440:18:46

-..but I tended to have curly hair,

-when I was young.

0:18:460:18:50

-When the curls started to grow,

-I was in a real panic.

0:18:500:18:54

-Didn't you like having curly hair?

0:18:540:18:56

-Didn't you like having curly hair?

-

-No, because curls are girly.

0:18:560:18:58

-I wanted to stop it happening.

0:18:580:19:01

-Believe it or not...

0:19:020:19:03

-..I used to wear a balaclava

-when I was in bed at night.

0:19:030:19:07

-I'll see if it still fits me.

0:19:070:19:09

-For weeks and months...

0:19:120:19:13

-..I slept with this balaclava

-on my head.

0:19:140:19:17

-There's another item

-linked to my childhood in here.

0:19:380:19:43

-I entered the Swansea Valley

-road race on 27th of April, 1982.

0:19:450:19:50

-I wanted to prove my masculinity...

0:19:500:19:53

-..so I trained in secret every night

-with Rhodri, my friend.

0:19:530:19:58

-I ended up winning the road race.

0:19:580:20:01

-This is the actual outfit I wore

-to run that race.

0:20:010:20:05

-I'll try it on,

-to see if it still fits me.

0:20:050:20:08

-A lot of the things I have still

-fit me, even if they're a bit tight.

0:20:080:20:14

-I was about 16 when I wore these.

0:20:140:20:17

-You see? They still fit me,

-just about.

0:20:210:20:23

-I take it you always wear

-this dress to do the housework?

0:20:390:20:43

-No, not always!

0:20:430:20:44

-There's a story behind this dress.

0:20:450:20:47

-I did a show called 'Iddo Ef'

-in the early 1990s.

0:20:470:20:51

-It was a piece based on the work

-of Ann Griffiths.

0:20:510:20:54

-This dress was created especially

-for the show.

0:20:540:20:58

-I'll tell you

-who inspired this dress.

0:20:590:21:01

-I remember

-watching the BAFTA ceremony.

0:21:020:21:04

-Nia Ceidiog was wearing a dress

-similar to this.

0:21:050:21:09

-It had a high neck and it was shaped

-like this, to show off her muscles.

0:21:100:21:15

-Nia Ceidiog inspired this dress.

0:21:160:21:18

-I take it this jacket

-has some significance?

0:21:360:21:39

-Yes.

-Listen and you'll hear it creak.

0:21:400:21:42

-Leather makes a special sound.

0:21:450:21:47

-This sound inspired my performance.

0:21:480:21:51

-I developed an idea,

-through the performance.

0:21:520:21:56

-I performed naked and

-I draped this jacket over my head.

0:21:560:22:00

-It takes place under the jacket.

0:22:010:22:03

-It was an image

-linked to ageing skin...

0:22:030:22:07

-..and our obsession with

-keeping our body young and healthy.

0:22:070:22:12

-I went to art college in Brighton

-during the 1980s.

0:22:270:22:31

-I decided to create an outfit

-to wear on my first day at college.

0:22:320:22:38

-Please remember

-this was back in the 1980s.

0:22:390:22:42

-This is the top.

0:22:430:22:44

-As you can see,

-it's made of towelling.

0:22:450:22:48

-Isn't it awful?

0:22:500:22:51

-There's also

-a pair of matching trousers in here.

0:22:520:22:56

-Oh, no!

0:22:560:22:58

-I wore the top and the trousers...

0:23:000:23:03

-..with Dr Martens boots

-and a biker's leather jacket.

0:23:030:23:08

-I thought it was great.

0:23:090:23:11

-From then on, the students called me

-"The little Welsh boy".

0:23:120:23:16

-One thing that strikes me

-is how much you enjoy your clothes.

0:23:240:23:28

-Yes. Clothes are important in

-my performing work and in my life.

0:23:290:23:34

-How would you sum up

-your relationship with your clothes?

0:23:390:23:44

-As you've discovered,

-my wardrobe is important to me.

0:23:440:23:48

-It spreads out and covers my work

-and my creative life.

0:23:480:23:52

-It's terribly important to me.
