Recommended TV Shows
Nunu mentions a couple of TV shows that she enjoys watching as someone in the fashion industry. She loves the merchandising element of Mr. Selfridge, a British period television drama series about Harry Gordon Selfridge and his department store, Selfridge & Co, in London, set in the 1910s.
Nunu also loves the costumes and design in Downton Abbey, a series set in the fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey that depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in the post-Edwardian era with the great events in history having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy.
