Below shows notes made from the audio recording of my meeting with Vogue Japan, in Tokyo. I decided to produce a mind-map due to the audio recording being around 2 hours long, and felt it was unnecessary to transcribe. Instead, main points have been taken and noted under paraphrased questions which I asked during the interview.
A recording of this will be submitted on a USB along with all other recorded interviews, whilst being noted in my appendices of my dissertation, with print outs of the notes featured below for reference.
This is also working towards the following objectives:
1. To understand the ways in which Social Media and Magazines can affect self-perceptions and issues:
A) With body image (Females, 18-24)
B) With body image on a cross-cultural scale (Females, 18-24; Tokyo, Japan).
2.To understand policies and guidelines within the Fashion and Beauty Industries currently encouraging positive body image.
3. To work with and interview those both actively working in the Fashion and Beauty Industries, and those on a consumer/follower/user basis, to compare behaviours and perspectives in relation to body image and self-perceptions.
