WELL this was my first time at London Fashion Week and it was so sweeeeeeet! I worked at the front of house at Vauxhall Fashion Scout and saw some of the shows including William Tempest, Ada Zanditon, Alice Palmer, Komakino and Orschel-Read. They were ALL incredible and I had SUCH a good time. Tried to get as many pictures/video's as I could but because my Blackberry has a crap camera and only holds about 10 photo's anyway I didn't have much luck... good job there were about 7million other photographers there so I should be able to find more pictures online!
Anyway, I went to a couple of after parties during the week including Ada Zanditon and Fannie Schiavoni. I met lots of great people and had a really good time!! These are a few pictures of the night with me and my stylist Emily Rajch (http://emilyrajchstyling.carbonmade.com/), stylist Shan Sarwar and having a nice tea-cup of some weird pink mixture...
ALSO! You may have noticed that I sported my latest waterproof dress/coat which is actually fantastic for nights out for drink spillages etc...!
Now... ROLL ON PARIS FASHION WEEK! I will be leaving on Thursday (4th March) to work for Vivienne Westwood at Paris Fashion Week. So very excited about that! I'll definitely be taking my French Pocket Guide...
Here are some lovely backstage photo's of the Richard Nicoll A/W 2010 collection. After working in the studio week after week it was amazing to see the models walk out onto the catwalk with everything looking great!! The collection was beautiful and sophisticated: pairing tailored jackets with soft floaty hand dyed tulle and velvet. Just added a cheeky little one of us girls just before the show, just letting you know incase you thought we were models..

I've been asked to design and make an outfit to show at the L'Oreal Colour Awards in June again this year which I'm proper excited about! I'll be working within a small team of designer/stylist(Me), model, hairdresser from Westrow called Guy(the boss), and make-up artist. Last year we won the regional heat and got through to the finals at Earl's Court in London which was actually crazy wazy because I'd never even been to anything like that before, it was like my first ever proper fashion show and it was totally MENTAL! Everyone who went got a free bottle of Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume and I was the most excited little creature when I got mine, as you can imagine.
It's gunna be really hard I think to pull off a super duper outfit that goes with the theme etc...which I have yet to find out....I'm gunna have to seriously do my research, as in hunt down all the up and coming trends I can from WGSN and make something proper sweet. So exciting.
That's it for now...must sleep before I fall into a stupor. Might stick Sleep Deprivation on by Simian Mobile Disco and freak out..
I've just got this image back from my shirt project shoot!!! I'm so chuffed!
