A bit of a different post from the norm; today I want to share the photos from a super exciting opportunity! As my family’s business in London is manufacturing leather, suede and sheepskin they work with designers, large retails, stylists and students. Consequently they get invited to many events which showcase their work. I was lucky enough to be able to attend graduate fashion week and watch the De Montfort and Kingston fashion shows with my uncle.
For someone who is not really clued up on fashion at all, it was an awespiring experience to enter the world of it and watch a live fashion show myself! I haven’t really had the chance to edit the photos, but I hope you still enjoy them – starting off with a the beginning of the journey!
*Queue Apprentice theme tune*….dum dum dum, dum dum dum dum….
Ok moving onto the actual venue – right in the middle of Brick Lane – The Old Truman Brewery
EEEEEEEEK A GIRAFFE! QUICK SNAP A PHOTO!!
The jackets that were manufactured in my Grandfather’s factory, designed by a student from De Montfort University
A few pieces of work out of the MANY that I found inspiring:
And now on to the runway!
Ooohhh look at all those camera *_*
Although my preference will always be the beauty side of things (I kept commenting on contouring much to the bemusement of my Uncle) I found it fascinating to get a glimpse into the world of fashion and the life of a fashion student! If you’re interested in finding out more about GFW or want to see it all in video here over to BeautyCrush’s channel or click here as she went to the same place I did the day after! Such a shame as I would have loved to have met her!
I hope you enjoyed this quick snapshot as-well!
Thanks for reading!
