CTKKIT in action!
Excited was not quite the word. Having tried to plan a photoshoot with him since last year, we've finally gotten round to it, and I'm very pleased that it had taken a year because there would be no better person I could think of that I'd be honoured to have to shoot my graduate collection. Today was absolutely amazing! I felt like I was off to dress a celebrity! He was very cool and moody to begin with, but throughout the day he loosened up and was just fantastic. We had models cancel last minute, weather playing tricks on up, but eventually held out for a bright sunny location shoot in Sutton Coldfield Park.
A very skillful photographer, managing to play with what he's got, and bringing out the best in every model. I'm very much looking forward to seeing the final images and hopefully get them ready for the Lingerie Collective exhibition! =)
All in all, I couldn't have wished for more- 4 beaut models (with lady lumps!) - Maria, Amy, Rebecca & Charley and a top photographer. Andy & Sean along with Kit's team made fantastic assistants and back of scene photographers & not forgetting MUAs Aiko Tsang & Ami Street for absolutely stunning makeup and hair!
Thanks to everyone who made the day such a laugh and very productive! =) Now to tidy the aftermath in the flat. O.M.G!
Roll on the editing! x

Showcasing at The Lingerie Collective

It has been such a long and eventful week!!!Too busy to blog but here's an update of the week:

Image taken from:

From finding out an outfit from my graduate collection has gone missing after the Freemason's exhibition, to finding out I've won a place to showcase at The Lingerie Collective!! The most prestigious luxury lingerie tradeshow in UK, frequented by buyers from Selfridges and all the lingerie boutiques on London, words can not describe how excited I am!!!

So alongside from preparing for the show, and remaking the missing pieces from the collection, I've also finally managed to get the very talented CTKKIT Photographer from Hong Kong to shoot my collection!

Models : Lara Raybone, Raphaella McNamara,Sophie Riley , Amy Green

Model : Stacey Hannant , Mike David CTKKIT PHOTOGRAPHY

So very busy indeed planning, organising and sewing! I feel like I have still not finished at uni!

I feel very blessed to be given all these opportunities but also a pat on my back because I think I've really pushed myself to get to where I am. Not having gotten on the degree catwalk has not turned me bitter but instead driven me to strive for more!

The hard work has certainly paid off because I've also secured a space on 'The Collection' catwalk, showcasing in London 8th July 2011,in association with FashionCapital and Edge Models.My designs alongside the luxury swimwear label Paolita! =) Neat.
Come and party with us on Friday 8th July! Studio Valbonne, Mayfair London.
Tickets: £25 VIP £10 Door £8.50 Advance
