And Breath ...........

Right so it has been a while since i last posted. A lot has happened since then in my world, and i only just feel like i can breath again. Iv finished making all my collection, finished painting my shoes, made hair bow ties, finished sketch book, portfolio, final boards, business promotional pack, costing packs, photo shoot, photo book, business cards, postcards and its even been our graduate fashion show to. Busy Busy Busy girl iv been. 

I also finally got round to finish painting all of my shoes ready for the catwalk show and my photo shoot heres how they turned out. I think there amazing and really fit in with my collection. 




So iv finally handed my FMP in i feel like i can actually breath now for the first time in months. I managed to get the endless list done and i was happy with everything :D heres some pictures of everything i handed in. The products of 6 months hard work! Now its just the matter of waiting and hoping i get the grades :D Fingers crossed :D 




Also for hand in we had to do a photo shoot of our final 6 outfits on models. I managed to persuade two of my stunning friends from work to do it for me and i also landed wynyard hall as a venue to shoot my own photographs. Heres some of the images which i love! The girls are amazing and i love the look and feel of the images. 














Me being me was not happy making just the 6 outfits we had to for hand in so in the two weeks between hand in and our fashion show i made my other two colours. Now i actually have made the rainbow :D 

So our fashion show came around quickly, and last friday was one of the most amazing days of my life. Loved it. The start of the day got slightly stressful when i had stroppy models refusing to wear some of my outfits, but i quickly solved it and some of our friends jumped in to save the day. I managed to get all 8 outfits down the cat walk which i was over the moon with. I had some pressure on me tho. I was closing the show with my collection 'At The End Of The Rainbow', the girls strutting their stuff to the song 'Rainbow' by Jessie J! I LOVE this song as it describes my collection so well and is also very funky for the models to strut their stuff to! I had some very quick changes and had to call on all the uni girls to help me change the girls put stocking on, clip suspenders, tie bows and slip shoes on. But with seconds to spare all the girls were changed and ready to go! My music came on and the models disappeared down the catwalk. The audience reaction was amazing, it really couldn't have gone any better and i got some amazing photographs of my collection to. I would just like to say a massive thank you to all my family and friends that came down to support me that night. I had the most amazing day and couldn't have got there without their help. Here are some of the photos, they look stunning on the models, I really couldn't be any happier. A massive thank you to Lisa's boyfriend Lloyd for taking these pictures. :D










I LOVE this picture of my full collection together. Seeing this image gives me a massive relief that i have done it. Finished 8 outfit and have created the rainbow in lingerie. 

The fashion show really couldn't have gone any better loved every second of the day, and it is safe to say that i had a few drinks at the after party that night to celebrate what a amazing time i had. Thank you to everyone for making it so special. <3 

Next stop Graduate Fashion Week to show my collection on our university stand. Me and the uni girls are going down to london for the full week staying in our very own house, im so excited and cant wait. Iv got my photo book, portfolio, business cards and post cards all ready to go. Im just keeping my fingers crossed some one will spot potential in me and love my collection :D  

I let you know how it goes :D
