British Fashion Show Vol. II

28 Comments


The transition between university and the real world is... well... it's weird. 
I've spent the past 16 years in education with the majority of time stressing over exams and deadlines. 
So being thrown into a slow motion limbo vortex of uncertainty isn't something I'm used to. 
A few weeks ago I was invited to my first ever fashion show at the Dorsett Hotel! Definitely made a change from the 1000 jobs applications I've sifted through in the past 14 days. For all you budding finance undergrads reading this. Take the sandwich year course. Experience seems to be favoured over the actual degree. (Shocking!)
Dress - ASOS
Sunglasses - Vero Moda (such a steal)
Heels - ASOS (sold out, alternative colours here, here, and a snazzy pair here. Someone's spoilt for choice!)
Watch - Larrson & Jennings or here
The main focus of this event was to celebrate leading British designers who participated in London/New York and Paris Fashion week. Their designs are stocked in places like Harrods and Selfridges and have even made clothing for Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift and our beloved Kate Middleton! You can read more about it here.
(Sorry for the blurry and out of focus shot. Lou was struggling to use my Canon. If I could show you all the failed attempts this post probably wouldn't load. Love you really!)
Ended up bumping into Victoria from "The sister wardrobe." I look like an egg but she's absolutely stunning! You can find her here.
We took our seats and waited for the show to start.
 After the second collection I was invited backstage. I got a bit snap happy...
 It was a fab show and I'm pretty sure this guy agrees with me.
"Faaaaabulous daaaarling!"

  2. Daaaaahling you did not look like an egg - you looked wonderful.
    I imagine the job hunt is horribly frustrating. Just think, one day you'll look back and it'll all be a distant memory x
