My First Collection | The Fashion Show

Hey guys,

If you didn't see me on twitter, stressing and then getting excited and then getting stressed again over my fashion show, well it was last Thursday!

I'm telling you guys, fashion show's look so glamorous and amazing but the work that has gone into it is crazy.
That morning I was exhausted, stressed, sad and a bit excited. Now that's a whirlwind of emotions.

The day before, I was added finishing touches, e.g hook and eyes and just making sure everything was together to find out two of models couldn't turn up.
It threw me over the edge when I was told to buy another pair of leggings and two pairs of shoes.
I don't handle stress well at all.

Anyway, the morning of, I was just hoping and praying that everything goes well.

I was greeted by one of my favourite teachers (NOT!) and made very angry, which put me in a bad mood for hours.
I met with my assistant (1st year student) and I explained everything to her, told her which pieces go together, what snapbacks I wanted them to wear, how I wanted their make up to look.
I felt like I was living a dream, this collection is the first of many.

The song I chose was Young Money - Senile mainly because it was a song I'd been loving whilst trying to style my collection and I think it went quite well with my collection. I love the bass, the beat, the words, so why not.

I'm glad most things went to plan, except for the last girl who didn't get the jacket closed up before she came on. But other than that, I was pretty pleased.
However at the time, I was so upset that it didn't go exactly to plan but it's taught me, no matter how much you plan something, it will never be perfect and that's life.

I'm truly blessed to be able to get that feeling of seeing my garments on the catwalk, with everyone clapping and cheering for  me. Being only 17 and feeling what I felt that day just makes me look forward to the future.

Thanks to everyone who supported me and helped out, I really, really appreciate it.
Down below is a video clip of my collection that I filmed, it's not great but you get a feel of it.
I haven't been to college since so I haven't been able to look at the photos and videos that the photographers took.

Thanks for reading and watching!
