Fashion Memoirs 2

Another instalment of what I’ve been up to in the world of blogging before I created thecurlyahairedgirl.org.uk. If you’re new you may not know this but I’ve been blogging since I was 15 and have had some great opportunities come my way, I thought I’d share them with you.

In 2012 I was fortunate enough to attend Clothes Show live as part of their press team, which was amazing. This was the first time I had ever been to anything like this and was blown away by everything. I saw work shops, celebrity brands, cat walks music, stands and so much more. I found some great brands that I still love today.

I was fascinated by the university catwalks more then the huge show. Being able to see new and emerging designers showcase their ideas was a true source of inspiration, and exciting to see.

Can you believe that I still have the dress I wore that day? I wore it on my birthday here.

Fashion Memoirs

Sharing one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done with you on the blog today.

One of the most exciting things I’ve ever done, is go to London Fashion Week s/s 2013.  I’ve always wanted to go so when I got tickets to the Simone Rocha show at Somerset House I was knocked sideways with excitement.

Back then I was borrowing my mums point and shoot camera and didn’t really have a clue about cameras or how to try and change settings for lighting. These photos aren’t the best quality but I love them.

Can you believe that I sat one row away from John Rocha!! Such a fan girl moment, I texted my mum and couldn’t help shaking with excitement.

The photo quality is super cringe worthy! I’m pretty sure it’s all the adrenaline of being at London Fashion Week, being at an amazing show, sitting so close to John Rocha making them blurry.

Lets talk about the looks: Feminine looks given masculine edge. knotted mohawks, chunky shoes, thigh cut outs relaxed waist lines. A lot of black which i really loved, the light reflecting of the ruffles the pop socks with pearls on. The music reminded me of Daft Punk and I was in love with the whole spectacle.

I hope to share with you more of my fashion memoirs and highlights.
