Apologies for the recent lack of posting but I have had a lot of stress finishing my final collection.
I was selected to be on the catwalk at GFW, which was both unexpected and amazing and then have had wave after wave of exciting and stressful things happen to me which has left this little blog all alone.
Firstly I was selected by my tutors along with 2 other students from my class to be sent to the graduate fashion week PR office for a photoshoot of one of our outfits. I didn't expect anything from this but was ecstatic that I was chosen as there are some ridiculously talented menswear students in my year! Then somehow, (I think maybe a fairy sprinkled some good luck dust on me...) my photo was chosen as one of 7 to represent GFW this year :-O I have seen it on various blogs and on the Telegraph website which is just crazy!
I then found out that got a first in my dissertation which I was definitely not expecting. I had put alot of work into it but never thought I was that great at writing things. My subject was 'Is knitting relevant to the modern feminist?' which surprisingly I was able to create a convincing argument for!
After our final hand in a couple of weeks ago I found out that I was being nominated for the Portfolio Award at GFW and although I wasn't short-listed it was an amazing feeling as I put in a lot of hard work to create and exciting and colourful portfolio that really represented me.
Yesterday was the UCA Epsom show and I had one of the best days of my life. It was so exciting to see all my hard work coming together and walking down the catwalk and I was so proud of myself and all my friends for putting on an amazing show. I also found out that I received a first for my Final Collection so all I have to worry about now is finding a job...
Here is a picture of me and the rest of the catwalk students from yesterday, somehow I ended up in the middle! Love you all x
