-Tonight,

-we meet designer Jane Davies.

0:00:000:00:03

-We will also take a peek inside

-David Meredith's clothes shed.

0:00:070:00:11

-First, to the Bethesda area

-to meet singer, Lleuwen Steffan.

0:00:120:00:16

-Welcome to Cwpwrdd Dillad.

-Clothes are playthings.

0:00:500:00:51

-It's about

-the way you want to be perceived.

0:00:520:00:55

-It isn't about who you really are.

0:00:550:00:58

-It's all about what you want

-the world to see, which is great.

0:00:580:01:03

-Lleuwen Steffan is a member

-of the jazz group, Acoustique.

0:01:070:01:11

-She loves to get dressed up

-to perform.

0:01:110:01:14

-Lleuwen,

-what are your greatest influences?

0:01:150:01:18

-What has influenced your music

-and your style?

0:01:190:01:22

-I would say that both things

-go hand in hand.

0:01:230:01:26

-Until fairly recently...

0:01:270:01:29

-..I've been wearing the clothes

-you expect a jazz singer to wear.

0:01:290:01:35

-I think it all stems back

-to my childhood.

0:01:360:01:38

-My father had a large and varied

-record collection.

0:01:400:01:44

-I was immediately

-attracted to the sleeves...

0:01:450:01:49

-..featuring dusky ladies

-in gorgeous dresses.

0:01:490:01:53

-I thought, "Wow!

-That's what it means to be a woman."

0:01:530:01:57

-This is my wardrobe, Nia.

0:02:000:02:02

-These are your concert dresses.

0:02:030:02:06

-These are your concert dresses.

-

-Yes, and this is my favourite.

0:02:060:02:08

-I haven't worn it, yet.

0:02:090:02:11

-It's a 1930s dress,

-that belonged to my aunt.

0:02:110:02:15

-It's an original, 1930s dress?

0:02:170:02:19

-It's an original, 1930s dress?

-

-Yes, that's right.

0:02:190:02:20

-It's been

-in my grandma's wardrobe for years.

0:02:200:02:24

-She said, "You should wear this

-to sing, Lleuwen."

0:02:240:02:28

-I didn't argue with her!

0:02:280:02:29

-I'd be scared to wear it,

-in case I ripped it.

0:02:310:02:34

-I won't be wearing it to do a gig

-at Bethesda Rugby Club!

0:02:340:02:38

-Is it important to you

-to dress in a very feminine way?

0:02:410:02:45

-Yes. I enjoy it.

0:02:460:02:48

-I'm a woman

-and that's what I represent.

0:02:480:02:51

-I realise it's all nonsense

-and clothes don't mean anything...

0:02:520:02:57

-..it's just part of enjoying life,

-like everything else you enjoy.

0:02:580:03:03

-I bought this in Copenhagen.

0:03:060:03:08

-I went there for the jazz festival.

0:03:090:03:11

-It brings back good memories?

0:03:120:03:13

-It brings back good memories?

-

-Yes, very much so.

0:03:130:03:15

-This is what I wear when I don't

-want to have to choose an outfit.

0:03:150:03:20

-I reach for this dress

-and it works every time.

0:03:200:03:23

-That's my overriding memory

-of good gigs.

0:03:230:03:26

-I wear this and

-I'm not aware of what I'm wearing.

0:03:270:03:30

-That frees you

-to focus on your singing.

0:03:300:03:33

-You're not self-conscious.

0:03:330:03:35

-You're not self-conscious.

-

-Exactly.

0:03:350:03:36

-I love the humour in clothes.

0:03:380:03:41

-There's no need

-to be serious all the time.

0:03:410:03:44

-I enjoy

-wearing over-the-top earrings.

0:03:450:03:49

-You can either take it seriously

-and despair a little...

0:03:490:03:53

-..or you can see the joke

-and appreciate the irony.

0:03:530:03:57

-It's all a bit of fun.

0:03:570:03:58

-# Here I am

0:04:010:04:07

-# I'm head over heels.

-I've fallen for you

0:04:080:04:16

-# Here I am

0:04:190:04:26

-# I want to surrender myself to you

0:04:270:04:34

-# But I wonder if you

0:04:380:04:44

-# I wonder

-if you feel as strongly as me

0:04:440:04:52

-# Does your world revolve around me?

0:04:530:05:01

-# There's no-one quite like you... #

0:05:020:05:13

-What look would jazz singers

-traditionally adopt?

0:05:150:05:19

-Traditionally,

-it's all about dresses.

0:05:220:05:26

-Very, very glamorous

-and often quite kitsch.

0:05:270:05:31

-Women want to get married to have

-a chance to wear that sort of dress!

0:05:310:05:37

-If you're a jazz singer, like me,

-you get all that out of your system.

0:05:380:05:42

-You wear that sort of dress

-to every gig!

0:05:430:05:45

-You're not worried about

-getting married?

0:05:460:05:49

-No. I get to wear the dresses

-in all sorts of colours, to boot!

0:05:490:05:53

-Are you increasingly confident about

-your clothes, as you get older?

0:05:550:06:00

-Yes, most definitely. I don't care

-what other people think any more.

0:06:010:06:06

-If I feel good about the clothes

-I'm wearing, it'll be a good day.

0:06:060:06:12

-If you're confident,

-it radiates from you.

0:06:120:06:16

-# I want to please, please,

-please you... #

0:06:180:06:23

-Do you dress to please your audience

-or do you dress to please yourself?

0:06:230:06:29

-I'm far more concerned with

-pleasing myself than my audience.

0:06:300:06:34

-It isn't fair

-and I'm going to stop doing it.

0:06:350:06:39

-Singing is a God-given talent...

0:06:420:06:45

-..and I should use it

-in a much kinder way.

0:06:450:06:49

-It should be used to please others,

-rather than please yourself.

0:06:490:06:54

-Otherwise, I may as well

-stick to singing in the house.

0:06:540:06:58

-Can you sum up

-what music means to you?

0:07:010:07:03

-Life. Freedom.

0:07:040:07:05

-What do clothes mean to you?

0:07:060:07:08

-Freedom.

0:07:080:07:09

-Clothes don't mean life to me.

0:07:100:07:12

-I like clothes...

0:07:130:07:15

-..but you can go overboard,

-thinking about your image.

0:07:150:07:20

-It isn't important.

0:07:220:07:24

-My grandmother said it's alright

-to give a shed a coat of paint.

0:07:240:07:29

-The thing is not to go overboard.

0:07:300:07:32

-If you do, it isn't real any more.

0:07:320:07:35

-It becomes pointless.

-A complete waste of time.

0:07:380:07:42

-I don't know

-how to stop playing at dressing-up.

0:07:430:07:46

-That's what it boils down to.

0:07:460:07:49

-It's all a game.

0:07:490:07:51

-Playing house.

0:07:510:07:53

-Playing dressing-up.

0:07:530:07:54

-Fancy dress.

0:07:550:07:57

-Will you do it when you're 60 or 70?

0:07:570:08:00

-Will you do it when you're 60 or 70?

-

-Yes, I hope so.

0:08:000:08:02

-I hope so.

0:08:020:08:03

-Clothes and fabrics are the life

-of fashion designer, Jane Davies.

0:08:180:08:23

-Here's where it all happens.

0:08:300:08:32

-Has your life turned out

-as you imagined?

0:08:320:08:35

-Are you living the dream?

0:08:360:08:38

-Yes. It feels a bit as if

-I'm living the dream.

0:08:390:08:42

-I loved to dress up,

-when I was young.

0:08:420:08:45

-When I take stock

-of what we're doing...

0:08:470:08:50

-..I must say we're creating

-some magnificent garments here.

0:08:500:08:54

-One-offs.

0:08:540:08:56

-We take our time, creating them.

0:08:570:08:59

-When I see stars wear them, on

-television, I think, "We did that!"

0:08:590:09:05

-It's so rewarding.

-It is a dream come true.

0:09:080:09:11

-This is every girl's fantasy!

0:09:140:09:16

-A wardrobe at work

-and a wardrobe, at home.

0:09:160:09:19

-Are you allowed to take things home,

-to wear in your private life?

0:09:200:09:24

-Well, I can take whatever I like!

0:09:240:09:27

-Not everything fits me,

-which is a damn shame!

0:09:270:09:30

-I'm lucky because the girls

-can make another one, to fit me.

0:09:320:09:36

-If you were off to a party tonight,

-which dress would you wear?

0:09:390:09:44

-A party?

0:09:450:09:46

-I think I'd go for

-a little touch of bling.

0:09:470:09:50

-Something girly.

0:09:500:09:52

-I think red is my colour.

0:09:520:09:54

-I'd wear this.

0:09:580:09:59

-Really, really sexy.

-Really, really dramatic.

0:09:590:10:03

-We should wear headscarves.

0:10:120:10:15

-We should really look the part!

0:10:160:10:18

-Yes. The girls and I do it.

0:10:180:10:21

-We dress up

-and we wear headscarves and shades.

0:10:220:10:26

-We drive to Chester

-and have a gorgeous lunch.

0:10:260:10:30

-That's our idea of a real treat.

0:10:310:10:33

-We all go home. Kick off your shoes.

0:10:340:10:37

-Back to normality.

0:10:380:10:40

-Back to normality.

-

-Yes.

0:10:400:10:41

-It's good to do things like that,

-sometimes.

0:10:420:10:45

-This is my wardrobe.

0:10:460:10:47

-You have a whole room as a wardrobe!

0:10:480:10:51

-Shall we start over here?

0:10:530:10:55

-Shall we start over here?

-

-Yes. This is my daywear.

0:10:550:10:57

-This is my work wear.

0:10:570:10:59

-Over here,

-you'll see my evening wear.

0:11:000:11:03

-I can see plenty of splashes of red.

0:11:030:11:05

-I can see plenty of splashes of red.

-

-Yes - red and black.

0:11:050:11:07

-Red is a happy colour.

0:11:080:11:09

-This is something I wear.

0:11:100:11:12

-I don't know if it's cool or uncool.

0:11:120:11:15

-I do know it's really comfy.

0:11:150:11:18

-I wear this to work

-and to go to the supermarket.

0:11:190:11:23

-Here's something

-completely over the top!

0:11:230:11:27

-I'm told I look like Elmo,

-off Sesame Street, when I'm in this!

0:11:270:11:31

-I don't care because I love it.

0:11:310:11:34

-I also wear jeans and T-shirts.

0:11:350:11:37

-This is my work wear.

0:11:380:11:40

-I wear jackets, coats and suits.

0:11:410:11:43

-This suit

-doesn't have much hanger appeal...

0:11:440:11:48

-..but this is absolutely fantastic

-when I'm wearing it.

0:11:500:11:54

-It's a simple shift dress,

-which I wear with lots of pearls.

0:11:540:11:59

-It looks fantastic.

0:12:000:12:01

-Let's move on to evening wear.

0:12:050:12:08

-Did you design these

-especially for yourself?

0:12:100:12:14

-Yes. My exclusive collection.

0:12:140:12:16

-This is my party dress.

0:12:170:12:19

-I love it.

0:12:190:12:21

-A wide skirt.

-This is my Ricky Martin dress.

0:12:210:12:24

-You do a bit of Latino dancing

-in this!

0:12:250:12:28

-Yes, definitely.

0:12:290:12:30

-Red, killer heels.

0:12:310:12:32

-Bright red lipstick.

0:12:330:12:34

-Bright red lipstick.

-

-Surprise, surprise!

0:12:340:12:36

-This is my all-time favourite.

0:12:380:12:41

-It's a very, very simple

-evening dress.

0:12:420:12:45

-You can wear it with pink

-or with black.

0:12:460:12:50

-It swishes around, when you walk.

0:12:520:12:55

-It looks fantastic.

0:12:560:12:57

-This is my million dollar dress.

0:12:580:13:00

-This is one of my favourites.

0:13:030:13:05

-The colour is so wow!

-It's so dramatic.

0:13:050:13:09

-The shapes are very, very simple.

0:13:110:13:13

-This has great sentimental value.

-I wore it to a wedding, on a beach.

0:13:140:13:20

-I walked along the beach with

-a bottle of champagne in one hand...

0:13:200:13:24

-..and wearing this.

0:13:250:13:26

-It was fantastic

-and this is very special, to me.

0:13:260:13:30

-I know you enjoy going out

-and dressing up.

0:13:320:13:35

-One obvious part of that...

0:13:360:13:38

-..is the all-important

-matching accessories.

0:13:380:13:42

-Shoes and bags.

0:13:430:13:44

-You can't resist them, can you?

0:13:460:13:48

-No. They're another

-little weakness of mine.

0:13:500:13:53

-I love handbag and shoe shopping.

0:13:540:13:56

-You can't make them yourself?

0:13:570:13:58

-You can't make them yourself?

-

-No. They're specialist fields.

0:13:580:14:01

-The red ones are my dancing shoes.

0:14:040:14:06

-I feel fantastic when I wear them.

0:14:060:14:10

-I think those shoes are gorgeous,

-but they're killers!

0:14:100:14:14

-They're fine, if you stand still.

0:14:160:14:17

-They're fine, if you stand still.

-

-Stand still, smile but don't walk!

0:14:170:14:21

-You don't dance on the tables,

-in those.

0:14:210:14:24

-No - not in those.

0:14:240:14:26

-What gives you the greatest thrill,

-as regards clothes?

0:14:270:14:32

-I love shoes and I love handbags.

0:14:320:14:34

-I love dresses, of course.

0:14:340:14:37

-I think what gives me

-the biggest thrill is dressing up.

0:14:370:14:41

-I love putting an outfit together

-and going out. Fantastic!

0:14:420:14:46

-That's the highlight of a night out.

0:14:460:14:49

-Yes - when Pete says,

-"Wow! You look lovely tonight."

0:14:490:14:53

-He knows exactly what to say!

0:14:540:14:56

-He knows exactly what to say!

-

-Yes, absolutely.

0:15:080:15:10

-Hello, Nia. Did you receive the map?

0:15:150:15:18

-Head along the Dinas Mawddwy road,

-from Llanuwchllyn.

0:15:190:15:23

-You'll see a red kiosk,

-with trees to the left.

0:15:240:15:28

-Come through the pine trees...

0:15:280:15:30

-..until you feel you've reached

-the ends of the earth.

0:15:300:15:34

-Keep walking and you'll find a lake.

0:15:360:15:39

-By that lake

-you'll see a wooden hut.

0:15:390:15:42

-That wooden hut is my wardrobe.

0:15:420:15:44

-Nia! Hello! How are you? Welcome.

-Was the map alright?

0:15:470:15:51

-Yes, but my map reading skills

-leave a lot to be desired!

0:15:510:15:56

-I tried to get the map

-up to Ordnance Survey standard...

0:15:560:16:00

-..and as detailed as possible!

0:16:000:16:03

-It's wonderful to meet you.

0:16:030:16:04

-It's wonderful to meet you.

-

-You, too.

0:16:040:16:06

-Welcome to my wardrobe.

0:16:060:16:08

-Welcome to paradise.

0:16:090:16:10

-David Meredith

-worked in public relations.

0:16:120:16:15

-He lives

-in Llanuwchllyn, near Bala...

0:16:150:16:18

-..but

-his wardrobe isn't in his house.

0:16:180:16:21

-QUACKING

0:16:210:16:22

-QUACKING

-

-Behave yourselves!

0:16:220:16:23

-Off you go,

-to the far end of the lake!

0:16:240:16:27

-To what extent...

0:16:270:16:29

-..did your line of work dictate

-the contents of your wardrobe?

0:16:290:16:34

-I had what I'd call

-a horrendously public career.

0:16:350:16:40

-That meant I had to dress formally.

0:16:400:16:44

-I had to wear a suit.

0:16:440:16:45

-The suit was important...

0:16:470:16:48

-..and elements of the suit

-were extremely important.

0:16:490:16:53

-Pockets, for example.

0:16:530:16:54

-I carried notes and

-details of meetings, and so on.

0:16:550:16:59

-Suits are extremely handy,

-in that respect.

0:17:020:17:05

-I was wearing a filing cabinet,

-in essence!

0:17:050:17:08

-Suits can make things easy,

-at times.

0:17:100:17:12

-A suit can be the easy choice.

0:17:130:17:15

-You wake up in the morning and

-you don't dither about what to wear.

0:17:150:17:20

-Precisely!

0:17:200:17:22

-You're free

-to concentrate on your work.

0:17:220:17:25

-Add those elements and you'll see

-the suit is extremely useful.

0:17:280:17:33

-Are you a slave to fashion,

-or do you buy whatever pleases you?

0:17:360:17:41

-Take the spotty tie.

0:17:420:17:44

-I'm very fond of the spotty tie

-but it's no longer fashionable.

0:17:440:17:48

-Squares are now in vogue.

0:17:490:17:51

-I don't like

-seeing squares on a tie.

0:17:530:17:55

-It's unnatural

-to see squares on a tie.

0:17:550:17:58

-Ties should either be spotty,

-or a plain colour.

0:17:580:18:02

-I'm about to have the privilege

-of seeing inside your wardrobe.

0:18:030:18:08

-Yes.

-It's my privilege to show it to you.

0:18:080:18:11

-After you.

0:18:120:18:13

-After you.

-

-You're too kind.

0:18:130:18:15

-I'm sure other people

-have larger collections of ties...

0:18:170:18:22

-..but I'm very fond of them.

0:18:220:18:24

-Do you receive many as presents?

0:18:240:18:26

-These seem to express

-your character.

0:18:260:18:29

-Not enough presents!

0:18:290:18:31

-Listen up!

0:18:320:18:33

-Listen up!

-

-I'd love many more presents.

0:18:330:18:35

-Do you have

-one particular favourite?

0:18:350:18:38

-No. I treasure them all.

0:18:390:18:41

-This is a nice colour.

0:18:410:18:43

-This is a lovely, spotty tie.

0:18:430:18:45

-I'm very fond of it.

0:18:450:18:46

-Is the handkerchief

-an ever-present feature?

0:18:470:18:50

-No, I sometimes forget to wear one.

0:18:500:18:53

-You wear them on special occasions,

-such as today.

0:18:530:18:56

-I'm very fond of this suit.

0:18:580:19:00

-I bought it in Cannes, to wear

-during the film festival, and so on.

0:19:010:19:06

-I was looking for

-a lily-white suit.

0:19:060:19:09

-I really wanted a white suit

-with wonderful lapels...

0:19:100:19:14

-..but I couldn't find one,

-on land or sea.

0:19:140:19:17

-I compromised

-and I settled for this colour.

0:19:200:19:24

-I've grown very fond of it.

0:19:250:19:27

-Other colours

-go really well with it.

0:19:270:19:30

-Blue and red, in particular.

0:19:300:19:32

-What about David Meredith,

-the private man?

0:19:340:19:39

-What do you wear

-on a Saturday morning?

0:19:400:19:44

-A tie and a suit.

0:19:440:19:45

-A tie and a suit.

-

-At home, on a Saturday?!

0:19:450:19:47

-Yes - I wear a tie every day.

0:19:470:19:49

-I strive to wear a tie all the time.

0:19:500:19:53

-You don't wear a tie in bed!

0:19:550:19:57

-Please tell me you don't!

0:19:570:19:58

-Please tell me you don't!

-

-No, of course not.

0:19:580:20:00

-The tie is a restricting, yet warm

-item of clothing.

0:20:000:20:06

-That's part of its glory.

0:20:060:20:08

-I've seen a photograph of you,

-wearing a T-shirt.

0:20:090:20:13

-You tried to tell me

-you didn't own a T-shirt.

0:20:130:20:16

-I do wear this, occasionally,

-in the privacy of my own home.

0:20:160:20:21

-I designed this T-shirt,

-when I was running my own company.

0:20:210:20:25

-It promotes the Welsh International

-Film Festival.

0:20:270:20:31

-You were wearing a shirt and tie

-under the T-shirt, in the photo.

0:20:310:20:36

-That's true.

-Thank you for pointing that out.

0:20:360:20:39

-Did you wear huge collars

-in the 1970s?

0:20:410:20:44

-To my extreme embarrassment...

0:20:440:20:46

-..I wore rounded collars.

0:20:480:20:50

-I like them. They're great.

0:20:500:20:52

-I like them. They're great.

-

-Yes, they're very funky!

0:20:520:20:55

-I like double-breasted jackets.

0:20:570:20:59

-They envelop you.

0:21:000:21:01

-The colour is wonderful.

0:21:020:21:03

-Any shirt and tie

-goes with this suit.

0:21:040:21:08

-There's a beer mat, in the pocket.

0:21:080:21:10

-There's a beer mat, in the pocket.

-

-A special beer mat.

0:21:100:21:11

-"Start every conversation in Welsh".

0:21:120:21:14

-This is a "bola deri".

0:21:170:21:19

-I use that term

-and I receive blank looks.

0:21:190:21:22

-I've just given you a blank look!

0:21:220:21:24

-This is a Moss Bros suit

-and I call it a "bola deri".

0:21:240:21:29

-It's a formal, dinner suit.

0:21:290:21:32

-Did you wear this to the Oscars?

0:21:330:21:35

-Did you wear this to the Oscars?

-

-Yes, indeed.

0:21:350:21:37

-This is my Oscars suit.

0:21:370:21:39

-What an experience!

0:21:390:21:41

-What an experience!

-

-It doesn't happen every day.

0:21:410:21:43

-I'm fond of this and I'm delighted

-I kept it for all these years.

0:21:450:21:50

-This coat is back in fashion.

0:21:500:21:53

-Good friends of mine have begged me

-not to wear this coat!

0:21:550:21:59

-They didn't mince their words.

0:21:590:22:01

-"Don't wear that ancient coat,"

-they'd say.

0:22:020:22:05

-I ignored them and, lo and behold,

-it's back in fashion.

0:22:050:22:09

-And you're in your hut.

0:22:090:22:11

-You're a stylish man.

0:22:110:22:13

-You're a stylish man.

-

-Thank you very much.

0:22:130:22:14

-Look at these stylish surroundings.

0:22:150:22:17

-Wonderful trees

-and green, lush growth.

0:22:180:22:22

-Welsh soil.

0:22:230:22:24

-This is Tara. This is Tara.

0:22:250:22:27

-You've retired

-but you're still a busy man.

0:22:290:22:32

-You continue to wear

-a suit, a shirt and a tie.

0:22:320:22:36

-Does that indicate

-reluctance on your part...

0:22:370:22:40

-..to let go of your work

-and your career?

0:22:400:22:43

-There may be something in that.

0:22:430:22:45

-You can't teach an old dog

-new tricks.

0:22:460:22:49

-In practical terms,

-I'm fond of suits, shirts and ties.

0:22:510:22:56

-I must confess my fondness of them!

0:22:560:22:59

-Amen.

0:23:000:23:01

-"Filling time on a battered clock

-on an old tree trunk by the sea.

0:23:010:23:06

-"And on the blue, placid waters

-sails the ship of my life."
