Headshot of Roz Jana, Oxfam Fashion Blogger

Roz is a sixteen year old student who lives in a tiny village in the rolling hills of rural england. These hills are home to trees, sheep and occasionally a tall girl picking her way across the fields in heels. The heels are strictly for her blog though - she favours Chelsea boots for tramping through the grass. She tends to dress impractically for the countryside - mixing charity shop finds and my grandma's dresses with vintage treasures from market stalls. These clothes usually find their way onto her blog: Clothes, Cameras and Coffee. She uses her blog as a platform to write about her interests, with particular emphasis on literature, fashion and photography. She wants to study English literature at University, and her current aspiration is to work towards being an author and freelance journalist. She was the winner of the Vogue Talent Contest for young writers in 2011, and will be completing work experience at Vogue this summer. She models informally, reads constantly and hates to go out without a notebook and pen.

Estethica exhibition

In Stitches

Still being at sixth form, I tend to build up and mythologise the summer holidays into a never-ending, sunny time of creative pursuits, café visits and charity shop excursions. The reality is rainier,...

Stopping Strangers

Shooting street style photography is a process of opening eyes.  One has to 'see' more than usual, focusing not only on people's clothes, but also on their faces. Working at Hay...
