Hi everyone!

Okay, I think I've said this a thousand times before, but SORRY for the lack of posts! I've been mega busy with various projects and been meaning to post just to give mini updates. Anywho, the new year is looming so what better way than to give a massive 6 monthly update condensed into one paragraph!

  • I've produced two fashion shows in Bristol which went pretty well considering they were my first ones and I had no real idea what I was doing! I guess that's sometimes the best way to learn- jump in and work through the challenges. I've had some useful, yet harsh feedback, but sometimes you need blunt people to drive a point home. If you're planning a fashion show, I have a few tips to make sure it goes smoothly: 1) have a team. This is the single most important point. I tried to do the first fashion show on my own and ended up spreading myself SO thin! As a result, it was chaotic and not as well attended as I would've liked, but thankfully it pulled through 2)have a back-up plan: designers, models and volunteers will all pull out at the last minute, so have people you can count on as a reserve, so you're not left high and dry 3) don't neglect the press: good coverage for the show is even more important than the show itself and means that the next show you do will have a bit of a following- invite local press, bloggers and radio personalities if you can.
  • As a result, I've decided to try my hand at styling, so have met a few photographers and hopefully will collaborate on a few ideas in the new year. I'll definitely post pics when the shoots are done and hopefully get feedback from you guys!
  • I'm also going to submit ideas for editorials to local magazines, so watch this space if they get published!
That's pretty much all I've been up to and I've spent most of the xmas break preparing for shoots in the new year (collecting pictures, books and other reference material) and will be back hopefully a bit more regularly! Thanks for your support and for continuing to follow me! I promise I won't be too much of a stranger!
(Here are a selection of pictures from both shows :D)
