LFW SS15 DAY 5

However much I enjoyed fashion week and working for such an amazing organisation, I welcomed day 5 with open arms! Dioralop, Isabel Garcia, George Styler and FAD were the final shows of the week along with the FIRST EVER plus size catwalk show, a collaboration of some designers who had already shown earlier in the week and Evans!
I didn’t find Dioralops collection very inspired at all, granted the print featured on some of the pieces was very cool, the collection as a whole, in my opinion was too simple and boring.
The Isabel Garcia collection, on the other hand, was polar opposite. Lovely floaty dresses with tailored pieces created a very diverse and lovely summer collection.
AND WE MET SIR PHILLIP GREEN! Such a lovely man and was really appreciative of everyone’s help with the Evan’s show!

LFW SS15 DAY 2

Day 2 at Fashion Scout featured the amazing work of Bernard Chandran
Lulu Lui and Ccuoco. I was put on both Bernard and Lulu and actually helped co-ordinate the models for Lulu Lui which was really exciting and made me feel really valued to know that I contributed to the success of the show!

Working with Bernard and his team for his show was brilliant and of course the clothes were amazing, we were also given little bracelets as a thank you for all of our help!

I then managed to watch the last show of the day by Ccuoco, which I would describe as just ‘leather underwear’, not really my cup of tea but the headpieces the models wore were amazing so!

LFW SS15 DAY 3

Swedish school of textiles was probably the most stressful show I’d ever been involved in! It worked out okay in the end but because there were 15 designers in one of the smaller make up rooms it was just abut of a manic few hours! Some of the designers clothes were incredible though, one girl it looked like she had used a computer to cut out pixelated-ish shapes and one designer incorporated gaffer tape into his pieces. Very inventive!

Graduate showcase exhibition was full of weird and wonderful creations by a range of designers, including Mari Macdonald and Grace Weller.

LFW SS15 DAY 1

So this year, instead of just being an intern I was offered the role of production assistant! 1st day went really well, had such a busy day and managed to rack up over 12 hours on the clock. I liked having the responsibilities that came with this new role as it actually felt like I was valued. For example, one of the team with designer Ashley Isham personally thanked me for all my help which was really touching and made me feel like I’d done a good job. Managed to get a few snaps to share with you all. IMG_0489.JPG

Molly’s Den

Probably my favourite shop/warehouse/treasure trove of amazing vintage, retro items and gorgeous antiques. I suggest you all go and visit, they’re located in Winchester, Bournemouth and London!

If that green vanity case is still there the next time I visit, it will be very very hard to resist! I did however purchase a couple of vintage bits, a gorgeous ivory pleated midi skirt and a beaut patterned scarf. I’m wearing the skirt with a vintage Burberry floral shirt I picked up in Oxfam.

Laura Ashley

I have been working at Laura Ashley in winchester since March and we get a certain amount of allowance for uniform each quarter. Thought I would share my favourite piece with you all. It has a lovely paisley pattern with 2 little pockets and is really comfortable which is always a bonus. (Excuse my laptop in the photo!)

London Fashion Week 2014

As some of you may have seen I documented my time interning at fashion week in February on here and it’s going to happen allllll again, but this time I won’t just be an intern, after a few emails I managed to get myself a role as backstage production assistant! I am quite nervous but also very very excited. Going to London on Tuesday to talk to people at Fashion Scout (the show for emerging designers) to discuss my role! Expect a LOT of photos of some beautiful clothes and accessories.
