Have you ever been to a fashion show? Do you know the preparation put into delivering a flawless show? Any kind of event takes planning and if you did not know before, fashion is fast moving, chaotic and fabulous!
I have been absent from blogging for the past month. A lot has been going on but i’ve mainly been focused on The Bridal Collection launch for the youngest bridal designer Gbemi Okunlola (As seen on The Young Apprentice 2011).
As Creative Director and Coordinator for the fashion show it took months of preparation making sure this showcase was nothing short of amazing. My main aim as creative director was keeping the client happy and ensuring there was a range of models. Hair and make up equipped and skilled enough to deliver in making the first model as beautiful as the next.
In the last month I put all my energy into finalising everything but as unpredictable as life is, the 9th July fell on the day of a tube strike.
The venue was beautiful and classy like the dresses themselves, based in Wood Green The Decorium. On any given day North London is far for most people but to fall on the day of a tube strike…thats just unnecessary stress. However there was absolutely nothing we could do…the show had to go on…and it did!
It was an amazing turn out and a massive learning curve for me. I enjoyed every moment of it, the good the bad and the chaos. Most importantly I left inspired by my baby girl Gbemi whose dreams came true on the 9th July.
At only 20years of age Gbemi Okunlola is breaking barriers and pushing herself to the limit by going above and beyond. I was also inspired by the full on support from family and friends. Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it.
Special thanks to Kiran Bhamracox for making it down to the show and capturing plus retouching these beautiful images.
