Graduate Fashion Show 2019

I wasn't on the Fashion Show Committee involved in organising and planning this but they did brilliantly! Everything was perfect on the day. Everybody was involved back stage in getting everything set up and ready and we each had a model to dress, dress rehearsals, figuring out the music timing and the pace of the walks. It was a long day but I learnt so much about how everything runs backstage and whats needed to get everything done. 

We were at the venue from 9am to help set up rails backstage, prepare the footwear for the models, as well as welcome the models, hair and make up and liaise with the staff from Firstsite on the day. 

The surreal moment of my graduate collection being shown on the catwalk is one I’ll never forget, the feedback I had was amazing and has given me such a confidence boost. It was amazing to be able to showcase my collection in front of my friends and family and it has left me feeling very excited for my photoshoot that will follow. I also have taken order and payment for one if my coats from a member of the audience at the show which was a really surreal moment for me.
