Fashion Graduate Show

So yesterday, after 3 months of hard work (and 3 long years of uni), I got to show at my university's Fashion Graduate Show here in Southampton.
Thanks to everyone's help on Twitter, Tumblr, and blogs, to find me models - thanks to you I was able to show and I will forever be ETERNALLY grateful.

I also had the extra stress of not being provided a dresser, but I did have enough time to rush around to watch my gorgeous models walk the runway, and I was so proud that I even shed a tear.
Take a look:
Steph wearing my skirt and silk crop top.

Hanna wearing my high-waisted shorts and shirt.
All my models had such confidence, bringing my clothes to life. They got a big cheer from the crowd!
Becky wearing my high-waisted trousers, spotty ruffled crop top and pink jacket.

Rhiannon wearing my red panelled shirt dress.

Betty wearing my 'not a jumpsuit' bralet and high-waisted paperbag trousers.



And finally Corinne wearing my bralet dress and cape.

It was so great and so emotional to see them all up there, looking stunning and making my clothes look amazing. It's made all the hard work and stress SO worth it.

After the show we posed outside for some quick photo's:



(I feel short)

I'm wearing:
Dress - ASOS Curve
Cardigan - Monsoon
Tights - Marks & Spencers
Shoes - Can't remember (think a shop in my hometown)
It was a fun day, and it was lovely meeting all the girls - I feel I've made some great friends. 
And I can not thank them enough for travelling down to model for me.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

p.s hopefully I can get a video of the show up soon so you can all watch :)
