LONDON FASHION WEEKEND

So it has been quite a while since I last posted - I've been very busy, again, and am currently trying to get through a tonne of uni work waah.

It was nearly 2 weeks ago that I received another amazing opportunity... this time it was to work at London Fashion Weekend! I worked on the Thursday, the first day of the event. My job was to work backstage as a dresser for one of the models. There were two types of shows - one was Designer and the other was Trend. The designer for our day was Zoe Jordan who was showing some of her SS13 pieces which were really striking. There were four trends for the Trend show: Graphic, Urban, Eastern and Dolls.

The best thing about working on the first show was that Labrinth was performing to celebrate the start of the event. We got a glimpse of him backstage and I also had to steam and iron his trousers - such a claim to fame haha. The shows all went very well and even though it was a long and exhausting day, I still had a lot of fun.

I had friends from home visiting me in London and so we went to the last show of London Fashion Week which was on the Sunday. It was interesting to actually see the fashion show from the audience's point of view whereas on Thursday I had been watching from backstage. One of my friends was wearing a hounds tooth dress - I painted her nails to match:




This week, I was set a challenge by my friend (and toppp blogger) Monica to create some nails to match the outfit she was blogging this week. Her dress was made up of a pretty floral pattern:




I decided to draw a gold vine across her nails and then painted flowers, which matched the colour scheme, on top of the vine. My nails were featured on her blog on Monday and you can check the rest of it out HERE!
