-In this programme...

0:00:200:00:21

-..contemporary style

-which is influenced by music.

0:00:220:00:25

-Vintage clothes

-with tales to tell...

0:00:270:00:30

-..and which open the door

-to a family tree.

0:00:300:00:33

-First, we take Cwpwrdd Dillad

-to the stables.

0:00:330:00:36

-Welcome to Cwpwrdd Dillad.

0:00:370:00:39

-Gucci started his career

-in the equestrian world...

0:00:520:00:55

-..so I could be the next Gucci!

0:00:560:00:58

-Horses have always been

-central to Hannah's life.

0:00:590:01:02

-She has an eye for fashion

-and a head for business.

0:01:030:01:06

-Come in.

0:01:070:01:09

-This is the studio

-at the hub of the business.

0:01:090:01:12

-From an old stable on their farm...

0:01:130:01:15

-..Hannah and her mother

-run an equestrian clothing company.

0:01:160:01:20

-It started because of me.

0:01:250:01:27

-When it gets busy, Mam says,

-"It's all your fault!"

0:01:270:01:31

-I'm tall and thin with long arms.

0:01:320:01:34

-I couldn't get a riding jacket

-to fit me.

0:01:340:01:37

-Dad said he didn't want to spend

-150 to 200 on a jacket...

0:01:380:01:43

-..only for it to be altered.

0:01:440:01:46

-He suggested to Mam that as

-she'd studied textiles in college...

0:01:460:01:50

-..she could make a jacket.

0:01:500:01:52

-That's what she did.

0:01:520:01:54

-I went to the shows and people

-asked me where I got my jacket.

0:01:540:01:58

-I was embarrassed

-to admit my mother made it...

0:01:580:02:02

-..but look what came of that!

0:02:020:02:05

-People asked Mam

-to make one for them...

0:02:050:02:08

-..so we now have a business with

-all this and the stock downstairs.

0:02:080:02:13

-How does the business work?

-How do customers order garments?

0:02:240:02:28

-Mam measures them...

0:02:280:02:30

-..then they choose a fabric

-and a style which suits them.

0:02:300:02:33

-They may have seen something

-in a magazine...

0:02:340:02:36

-..but would prefer a different collar

-or different sleeves.

0:02:370:02:41

-If you bring a magazine here, we'll

-create a bespoke design for you.

0:02:410:02:46

-It's like a wedding dress -

-equestrian couture.

0:02:460:02:50

-Yes, and it's important.

0:02:500:02:52

-Equestrian events

-are like fashion shows.

0:02:520:02:55

-Everyone wants to look their best.

0:02:550:02:58

-Take me through the different looks.

0:02:580:03:01

-The tweed jackets are for

-the Mountain and Moorland breeds.

0:03:020:03:06

-This blue jacket

-is for the Show Ponies.

0:03:070:03:10

-For this, navy is always worn,

-never tweed.

0:03:100:03:14

-This is a side saddle habit.

0:03:160:03:20

-Can you hold that for me?

-Thank you.

0:03:200:03:22

-I'll move this pretty lady

-back a bit!

0:03:220:03:25

-In the olden days,

-it would have been a full skirt...

0:03:270:03:31

-..but it's since been adapted.

0:03:310:03:33

-When riding side saddle,

-the left leg is raised.

0:03:340:03:37

-The skirt is draped

-across the leg, like so.

0:03:370:03:40

-When it's worn like this,

-it looks like a skirt.

0:03:420:03:45

-This bit tucks under the knee.

0:03:450:03:47

-Let me hold up the skirt

-to show the back to you.

0:03:480:03:51

-It's really short.

0:03:520:03:53

-It rests on top of the saddle.

0:03:530:03:55

-To the judge's eye,

-it looks like a full skirt...

0:03:560:03:59

-..but it's far easier

-for the rider to wear.

0:03:590:04:02

-When they dismount, they don't want

-their bottom in full view...

0:04:030:04:07

-..so they take the fabric

-that was tucked under your knee.

0:04:080:04:12

-It wraps around the back,

-covering everything.

0:04:120:04:15

-For the sake of decency!

0:04:160:04:17

-For the sake of decency!

-

-Very decent.

0:04:170:04:18

-Are these clothes expensive?

0:04:200:04:22

-As you'd expect, I say they're not!

0:04:220:04:24

-A jacket such as this

-costs around 250.

0:04:250:04:29

-These designs are either

-my mother's work or my own work...

0:04:290:04:34

-..and almost every garment we sell

-is handmade.

0:04:340:04:37

-Did you design this one?

0:04:440:04:46

-No, my mother designed it.

0:04:460:04:48

-The jacket is called The Hannah,

-after me!

0:04:500:04:53

-That's a lovely touch.

0:04:540:04:55

-Yes, and it's easy for us

-to remember its name.

0:04:550:04:58

-I ordered one to wear

-when I judge at shows.

0:05:000:05:03

-It's a little bit baggy

-at the front...

0:05:030:05:06

-..so Mam will put two darts there,

-to make it a bit more fitted.

0:05:060:05:11

-It will suit my young figure.

0:05:110:05:13

-Are fashion and style important,

-even with equestrian clothes?

0:05:140:05:19

-Yes, I'm the one in the ring

-and I'm the model for the business.

0:05:190:05:23

-I wear something striking so people

-ask me where I got the jacket.

0:05:240:05:28

-This is my dressing room.

0:06:040:06:06

-This is my dressing room.

-

-You have your own dressing room!

0:06:060:06:08

-Yes.

0:06:080:06:09

-This is my wardrobe.

0:06:100:06:11

-The first thing I noticed

-was the tweed.

0:06:110:06:14

-Your wardrobe is almost an

-extension of the equestrian world.

0:06:140:06:19

-Yes. Here's my favourite coat.

0:06:190:06:21

-It took a long time to persuade Dad

-I needed one!

0:06:220:06:26

-And that he needed to pay for it!

0:06:260:06:28

-And that he needed to pay for it!

-

-Yes, of course!

0:06:280:06:30

-I love this jacket.

0:06:300:06:32

-I wear it to go shopping

-and when I go out to town.

0:06:320:06:35

-At first glance,

-it looks traditional.

0:06:360:06:39

-That's because of the fabric.

0:06:390:06:41

-The shape is young

-and rather unusual.

0:06:410:06:44

-Yes, the additional fabrics add

-a twist to something traditional.

0:06:450:06:50

-The first time I saw it I thought

-it was nice and young.

0:06:500:06:55

-I've seen older people

-in this jacket...

0:06:550:06:57

-..and it looks just as modern

-on them.

0:06:580:07:00

-How do you wear it?

0:07:000:07:02

-I usually wear skinny jeans

-with everything!

0:07:020:07:06

-There's yellow and blue

-in this jacket.

0:07:070:07:10

-It goes with either blue jeans

-or white jeans.

0:07:100:07:14

-The white ones look great...

0:07:140:07:16

-..but they're not practical

-for a show.

0:07:160:07:19

-No, not really.

0:07:190:07:20

-I also have

-a pair of Victoria Beckham jeans.

0:07:210:07:25

-If I'm going somewhere posh,

-I'll wear them.

0:07:250:07:28

-I don't want to look like a snob!

0:07:280:07:31

-They're expensive!

0:07:310:07:32

-You smiled nicely at Dad again!

0:07:330:07:35

-I'm his only daughter,

-so there are a few perks!

0:07:350:07:38

-I got this belt

-from one of the big shows.

0:07:550:07:59

-It fastens like this and looks

-really nice with a pair of jeans.

0:07:590:08:03

-It isn't Gucci

-but nobody else knows!

0:08:030:08:06

-Do you enjoy mixing the traditional

-with the young and funky?

0:08:100:08:15

-Yes, I'm a young girl

-and I like high street fashion...

0:08:150:08:19

-..and the clothes I see

-in magazines.

0:08:190:08:22

-I was raised with tweeds

-and traditional fabrics...

0:08:220:08:26

-..so I combine both

-to create a unique style of my own.

0:08:260:08:30

-I like the retro sport look.

0:08:410:08:44

-I like 1980s fashion

-and the clean-cut look.

0:08:450:08:48

-One glance around your room

-and I feel as if I know you already.

0:09:120:09:16

-You're into all this stuff,

-aren't you?

0:09:160:09:19

-Yes, I collect trinkets.

0:09:200:09:21

-I've always done it

-and now I have a nice collection.

0:09:220:09:25

-When it comes to vinyl,

-I find it aesthetically pleasing.

0:09:260:09:32

-I like putting the needle

-on the record.

0:09:320:09:35

-I like the whole geekiness of it.

0:09:350:09:38

-The little things other people

-would find mundane appeal to me.

0:09:380:09:43

-You mentioned geekiness.

0:09:440:09:46

-Is geek chic your general look?

0:09:460:09:48

-I'd agree with geek

-but I don't know about chic!

0:09:500:09:53

-Everything I have is geeky!

0:09:560:09:58

-I'm into Star Wars.

0:09:590:10:01

-I collect games, cards and stickers.

-I've done it since I was a kid.

0:10:010:10:06

-Do you collect clothes too?

0:10:080:10:10

-Yes, it's part of the same appeal.

0:10:100:10:13

-I never throw anything away.

0:10:130:10:15

-Once I own a garment,

-it isn't easy to throw it away.

0:10:170:10:21

-It has sentimental value.

0:10:210:10:23

-You can't possibly wear

-those battered shoes!

0:10:240:10:28

-I sound like your mother!

0:10:280:10:29

-I sound like your mother!

-

-Yes, Mam tells me to throw them out.

0:10:290:10:32

-I just can't bring myself

-to get rid of them.

0:10:320:10:36

-They're a lovely fit on my feet.

0:10:360:10:39

-Just like a pair of sandals,

-they're well ventilated!

0:10:390:10:43

-I wear them in the summer.

0:10:440:10:45

-I like to feel the wind on my feet!

0:10:470:10:49

-A string of excuses!

0:10:500:10:51

-A string of excuses!

-

-Yes, I knew you'd ask about them!

0:10:510:10:53

-Do you spend a fortune on clothes?

0:11:090:11:11

-No, not at all.

0:11:110:11:13

-I try to keep it under 20.

0:11:130:11:15

-If I spent more, I'd always know

-I could have done better.

0:11:150:11:19

-What is the appeal

-of vintage, retro clothes for you?

0:11:270:11:31

-The fact that

-I've found them myself.

0:11:320:11:35

-I always know I haven't paid

-a lot of money for clothes.

0:11:360:11:40

-When I see other people's clothes,

-I know they've paid double for them.

0:11:410:11:46

-It's a kind of personal victory.

0:11:460:11:49

-This is a 100% cashmere jumper

-and I only paid 8 for it.

0:12:030:12:08

-It's a really nice jumper.

0:12:090:12:10

-There's a hole in the cuff.

0:12:120:12:13

-Didn't that bother you?

0:12:140:12:16

-Didn't that bother you?

-

-No, not for 8! You can't go wrong.

0:12:160:12:18

-This is a Ralph Lauren polo shirt

-and I only paid 10 for it.

0:12:230:12:27

-If I bought it new,

-it would have cost a fortune.

0:12:280:12:31

-You have a nose for a bargain.

0:12:340:12:36

-Yes, I'm a bit of a David Dickinson!

0:12:360:12:38

-Yes, I'm a bit of a David Dickinson!

-

-Yes, but your skin's not orange!

0:12:380:12:41

-You're colour blind, aren't you?

0:12:450:12:48

-Doesn't that cause problems

-when you get dressed?

0:12:480:12:52

-I usually stick to dark colours.

0:12:520:12:55

-The problems start

-when I go for bright colours.

0:12:550:12:59

-I once bought what I thought was

-a pair of white winkle-pickers...

0:13:010:13:05

-..and my girlfriend asked me

-why I was wearing baby pink shoes!

0:13:050:13:10

-I'd worn them for a fortnight,

-thinking I was super cool!

0:13:100:13:14

-Hearing they were pink was a blow!

0:13:140:13:17

-What else do you have?

0:13:210:13:22

-Wow! I like this one.

0:13:230:13:24

-Yes, that's a real gem.

0:13:240:13:26

-The fabric is really weird.

0:13:280:13:30

-It's called Tyvek and astronauts

-use it when they go to outer space.

0:13:300:13:35

-Really?

-Do astronauts use this fabric?

0:13:350:13:38

-Yes, I think so.

0:13:380:13:40

-I doubt this jacket is practical

-for astronauts, mind you!

0:13:400:13:44

-There's a sweatband here

-if they fancied jogging on the moon!

0:13:440:13:49

-If you look at the back,

-you'll see it opens from the hood.

0:13:490:13:54

-That's great!

0:13:540:13:55

-What's your favourite item?

0:14:070:14:09

-I'd have to go

-for this Adidas tracksuit top.

0:14:120:14:15

-I love Adidas track jackets.

0:14:150:14:17

-I can wear this top when I go out.

0:14:170:14:20

-I can also wear it

-when I'm dressed casually.

0:14:210:14:24

-It's getting

-a bit too small for me...

0:14:240:14:27

-..but, like the shoes,

-it's here to stay.

0:14:270:14:30

-Even if the sleeves are up there,

-it doesn't matter!

0:14:300:14:34

-No, I'll always keep it.

0:14:340:14:36

-I won't lose track of it!

0:14:360:14:38

-Pardon the pun!

0:14:380:14:40

0:14:570:14:59

-Hello, Nia!

0:15:060:15:07

-Hello, Nia!

-

-Hello, Delyth.

0:15:070:15:09

-It makes me aware of my roots.

0:15:170:15:19

-It opens the door to history.

0:15:200:15:22

-Delyth has inherited old clothes

-from her family.

0:15:230:15:26

-They date back over four generations

-to the mid-18th century.

0:15:260:15:31

-These are family treasures.

0:15:320:15:34

-Yes, but it wasn't always true.

0:15:340:15:36

-When I was teaching, the children

-wore them for Christmas concerts.

0:15:370:15:41

-They weren't treated

-with much respect!

0:15:420:15:45

-When I retired, I did some research

-into them and it's interesting.

0:15:450:15:50

-I looked into the history of

-the people who wore these clothes.

0:15:510:15:55

-This belonged to

-your great-great-grandmother.

0:15:550:15:59

-This belonged to

-your great-grandmother.

0:15:590:16:02

-This belonged to your grandmother.

0:16:020:16:05

-Yes,

-my grandmother was called Margaret.

0:16:060:16:10

-She was one of 13 children.

0:16:100:16:12

-At a young age, she was sent away

-to work as a maid in a mansion.

0:16:120:16:16

-That's when she wore these clothes.

0:16:160:16:19

-She wore cuffs on her wrists.

0:16:200:16:22

-She wore this on her head.

0:16:260:16:28

-This is amazing -

-such intricate craftsmanship.

0:16:280:16:31

-In later life,

-she dressed like a lady.

0:16:320:16:35

-I remember her wearing an apron

-and her hair in a bun when working.

0:16:360:16:40

-When she'd finished the housework...

0:16:410:16:43

-..my grandmother would have a wash

-and she'd change her clothes.

0:16:430:16:49

-She'd put her hair in two plaits

-and wrap them around her head...

0:16:490:16:53

-..and wear clothes from New York.

0:16:540:16:56

-She was then ready

-to receive visitors to the house.

0:16:580:17:01

-She was a real lady.

0:17:010:17:03

-Clothes from New York! How come?

0:17:030:17:05

-One of her sisters had gone

-to New York to work as a nanny...

0:17:060:17:10

-..when she was really young.

0:17:100:17:12

-During the War, when everyone here

-had to use coupons to buy clothes...

0:17:130:17:18

-..she'd send parcels of clothes

-to my grandmother.

0:17:180:17:22

-That's how she came to own

-clothes like this.

0:17:220:17:26

-She looked like a real lady.

0:17:270:17:29

-This green cape revealed the story

-of another family member...

0:17:350:17:40

-..Reverend Richard Williams,

-who was a wool merchant.

0:17:410:17:45

-He travelled the country

-buying flannel...

0:17:460:17:50

-..and preaching at the same time!

0:17:500:17:52

-I imagine him on horseback,

-wearing this cloak.

0:17:530:17:57

-How old is this cape?

0:17:590:18:00

-The style dates back

-to the mid-19th century.

0:18:020:18:08

-They'd pass down clothes

-from one generation to the next.

0:18:080:18:12

-It's hard to tell when he wore it.

0:18:120:18:15

-Before he died, it was

-Reverend Richard Williams's wish...

0:18:230:18:28

-..that each of his children

-should have a Peter Williams Bible.

0:18:280:18:32

-This is the Bible he gave to Mary,

-my great-great-grandmother.

0:18:340:18:38

-The clothes behind me

-belonged to Mary.

0:18:390:18:42

-The bonnet and the blouse

-belonged to her.

0:18:430:18:46

-These were her pantaloons.

0:18:470:18:49

-That's a nursing shawl.

0:18:490:18:51

-The baby would feed

-and the mother had her hands free.

0:18:520:18:56

-She could carry on with housework

-or spinning on the wheel...

0:18:560:19:00

-..while she nursed her baby.

0:19:010:19:03

-Mary had a brother

-who was also a Methodist minister.

0:19:030:19:09

-She lost a baby and he wrote

-a letter of condolence to her.

0:19:110:19:17

-In it he says...

0:19:170:19:19

-.."In the hope this solemn event...

0:19:190:19:24

-"..under Heaven's blessing...

0:19:240:19:26

-..causes you to fully reflect

-upon your own death."

0:19:260:19:29

-Isn't that terrible?

0:19:300:19:31

-It seems strange to us today.

0:19:310:19:33

-She replies to his letter by writing

-poems about the loss of a child.

0:19:340:19:39

-"My heavy heart and sad soul

-yearn for you, my bonny babe."

0:19:390:19:44

-I often think about her.

0:19:470:19:48

-Sadly, losing a child was

-a common occurrence in those days.

0:19:490:19:53

-When you talk about

-your family history...

0:20:000:20:03

-..and you look at these clothes...

0:20:040:20:06

-..history comes alive to you.

0:20:060:20:08

-You didn't know your

-great-great-grandmother, of course.

0:20:090:20:13

-No, but I've read extensively

-about her and my other relatives.

0:20:130:20:18

-That certainly

-makes them come alive.

0:20:180:20:20

-I have a snapshot of who they were.

0:20:210:20:23

-Delyth, you're an artist.

-You painted that picture.

0:20:400:20:44

-You're also a seamstress.

0:20:440:20:46

-You're very creative.

0:20:460:20:48

-This is my personal space.

0:20:480:20:50

-I get away from it all in here.

0:20:500:20:52

-My grandmother taught me to sew.

0:20:560:20:59

-She went to Rochdale as a tailor's

-apprentice when she was young.

0:21:000:21:05

-I enjoy making lace.

0:21:060:21:07

-Did you make that white top?

0:21:080:21:09

-Did you make that white top?

-

-Yes.

0:21:090:21:11

-I wouldn't know where to start!

0:21:110:21:13

-Lacemaking is a mystery to me.

0:21:130:21:15

-It's a real art.

0:21:160:21:18

-My mother was also a seamstress.

0:21:180:21:20

-When clothes were rationed

-during the War...

0:21:200:21:24

-..she cut up old coats

-to make coats for me and my sister.

0:21:240:21:28

-It was great when the blackouts

-were taken down from the windows.

0:21:280:21:32

-They covered up windows

-so the enemy could not see lights.

0:21:330:21:37

-When blackouts came down, some

-mothers made skirts from the fabric.

0:21:370:21:41

-We wore them when we competed

-in Urdd eisteddfodau.

0:21:420:21:45

-We added

-red, green and red bands to them.

0:21:450:21:48

-You used blackout fabric.

0:21:490:21:50

-You used blackout fabric.

-

-Yes, indeed.

0:21:500:21:51

-We sang, recited and danced in them.

0:21:520:21:54

-You must enjoy creating something

-and wearing it...

0:21:550:21:58

-..knowing no-one else

-will wear the same garment.

0:21:580:22:02

-You made your own wedding dress,

-didn't you?

0:22:020:22:05

-Yes, when I started to earn a wage

-in the 1950s...

0:22:060:22:10

-..I spent all my money

-on dancing dresses.

0:22:100:22:13

-I loved to dance.

0:22:130:22:15

-Unfortunately, I then met Tom

-and he had two left feet!

0:22:150:22:19

-Despite that, we got married!

0:22:210:22:23

-I made my own wedding dress.

0:22:240:22:27

-I bought the fabric

-in Browns of Chester.

0:22:300:22:33

-I chose a Vogue pattern.

0:22:340:22:35

-I was almost too nervous

-to cut it with my scissors!

0:22:370:22:40

-I tackled it in the end.

0:22:410:22:42

-I had no choice!

0:22:430:22:44

-I made the dress on an old,

-cast iron sewing machine.

0:22:440:22:47

-It's yellowed quite a lot.

0:22:480:22:50

-It's old, just like me!

0:22:500:22:53

-Are you still a keen seamstress?

0:23:030:23:05

-Are you still a keen seamstress?

-

-No, not really.

0:23:050:23:07

-All I tend to do is repair jeans

-for my grandchildren...

0:23:070:23:11

-..and alter existing clothes.

0:23:110:23:14

-During the 1980s...

0:23:140:23:16

-..you could save a lot of money

-by making your own clothes.

0:23:160:23:20

-That crochet top

-and the green jumper...

0:23:240:23:27

-..look fine on Elin,

-my granddaughter - Lleucu...

0:23:290:23:33

-..even after all this time.

0:23:330:23:35

-Did you make both of those?

0:23:360:23:37

-Did you make both of those?

-

-Yes.

0:23:370:23:38

-In the current economic climate,

-will people take up sewing again?

0:23:390:23:44

-Do people recycle clothes?

0:23:450:23:47

-Yes,

-there's a growing interest in it.

0:23:470:23:50

-There are sewing classes

-all over the country which is great.

0:23:510:23:55

-We had lost a lot of these skills to

-countries such as Taiwan and China.

0:23:560:24:01

-For the sake of the economy,

-we should rediscover these skills.

0:24:010:24:06

-It's extremely important

-to recycle clothes.

0:24:060:24:10

-It's amazing what can be created

-from old clothes.
