Hello and happy Sunday! Grab a cup of tea, get comfy and get reading! I had a CRAZY week culminating in a fashion show Thursday night. It was the semi finals of DIT’s Project Young Designer competition. Although I didn’t make it to the finals (but three students from Grafton Academy did YAY!!) it was an amazingly fun and rewarding experience.
I entered an outfit from my first collection I’m making in college, a top, skirt and leggings. Its so exciting to see your designs on a model and not just a mannequin! It was also incredible to see garments from other talented designers from other colleges.
We arrived at 12 to be assigned our models and have a fitting. Then we left to order pizza and make any last minute adjustments to our garments. Then back to watch hair and make up, take 100’s of pictures and wait for the competition to start. It was an exhilarating, stressful, rewarding night. We may have had a few well earned cocktails afterwards! Tomorrow it’s back to the grindstone to get started on the rest of my collection. I think I’ll start putting up more of my work and progress designs up here. It might be something you’re interested in? I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
