So the past week i have been in london doing work experience at graduate fashion week, which has been absolutely amazing. not only did i get to see all the catwalk shows and awards shows, i was also allowed backstage to get a closer look at the designs and designers. i even managed to blag a couple of goody bags to boot!
the weeks events were held at earls court and the hall was buzzing from the first day. my job was to seat people, VIP's and press in one section, the public in another (definitely not to be mixed up) prepare the stages for the shows and to find out exactly how the universities wanted the shows to run. basically doing a hell of a lot of running about. oh, and packing up 3,500 goody bags and getting paper cuts all up and down my arms.
here are some of my favourite catwalk moments taken sneakily to avoid a telling off-
i met so many amazing people and really enjoyed the entire week even though i was working 7am-11pm towards the end! it all culminated in a star studded gala show where the winner Myrto Samou was announced but more importantly i met erin o'connor, matthew williamson, giles deacon and claudia schiffer...who happens to be even more perfect in person!
