Lingerie Insight, a top industry magazine, has collaborated with The Lingerie Collective to offer one student a chance to exhibit with the group of luxury lingerie designers at the tradeshow in July. How super exciting! Well after a fight with two heavy suitcases of final collection work which I was only allowed to pick up today in time for the last day of entry, rushed home to snap up some photos and sent off my application. I suppose it would be a bonus to get picked but its great for me to be able to finally enter competitions now I've finished uni. This is the first one so far so I'm excited for feedback.

Take a look at my entry =)

Busy Hectic Crazy week!

To start off the week, I was designing logos, layouts and uniforms for a new bubble tea shop opening this summer in Manchester... it's gonna be big so watch out! Bringing the quirky,fun and cute Japanese lifestyle over. UK needs abit of livening up! We can only take so much frappucinos (& calories!)every summer!

Next I've been busy with meetings with the pastor of my mum's church who's tying the knot this september-finally! Very shocked at the news but feel super honoured to be asked to design the veil to compliment her dress. Stay posted to see the finished piece! Very inspired by the late Royal wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge! Ohh she looked stunning...

Also through the week, I've been busy planning shoots for the weekend which will be very exciting to be working with a wide range of creatives to create some lovely lookbooks and portfollio pieces. More details and pictures of the shoots to follow.

As if that was not enough, I have also been packing all week to prepare for my move to the boy's place. I am sat next to now what resembles a jumble sale, the contents of my room waiting for me to unpack it ugh! Needing something interesting in the background to keep me going so I might do some catchup on ITV player...
