"Charvas, trinkets and trailer trash..."
Hello!!!Eventually I get around to writing a new entry!!Well the past few months have been incredibly intense....many sleepless nights, burning the midnight oil on a daily basis, pricking my finger way too many times to mention but finally I got there!!After being selected to show my collection on the catwalk at Graduate Fashion Week (of which the actual selection process was the most terrifying and most emotionally draining day of my life...think "x-factor" but 10 times scarier) the day Ive waited for forever finally came!!!It was most definatley worth all the blood, sweat and tears that the past few years have seen and I was delighted at how it all went!For those of you who havent heard me going on and on about the collection over the past year...Ill give you a brief round up of what it was all about....a lot of it was inspired by things that I saw and experienced whilst travelling last year...the main influences of my collection were: trailer trash, nostalgia, Japanese Street fashion, mail order briders, trinkets, charvas, caravans,working class subcultures and print design......in the end the collection was made up of jackets made from tea towels with cute cupcakes printed on, cropped rainmacs made from printed vinyl tableclothes, teamed with super sparkly holographic leggings and all accessorised with huge necklaces adorned with candy, kids plastic play food, trinkets and Russian Dollies...and of course a few Fuschia pink pom-poms! Thats it, in a nutshell!!!Had all the family and friends there and the cherry on the cake was meeting Mark Owen whilst having a pizza in Battersea afterwards!!!How random, perfect end to a perfect day!!!!
Ok, so Ill leave you with some photos from the show to check out!!!!
