London Fashion Week Day Four

Day Four of Fashion Week came around quicker than expected. With all the rushing around and different outfits it has been quite nice to go through all my footage and break it all down into daily chunks for you. I think that the shows from London Fashion Week Day Four were really strong and unique, so enjoy!

I was incredibly happy about my London Fashion Week Day Four outfit because as you can see it’s my favourite colour- bright orange! This lovely dress is from Sydney Davies London and I cannot thank The Colour 8 agency for hooking me up with this. I had a wonderful time at the Look Fantastic Blogger’s Lounge where the Philip B team styled my hair to go with the bold dress. My stylist plaited and then ironed the plaits to create a crimped mane for my day four look- I think it was fantastic!

Little Extras

The one thing I love about Fashion Scout is that all the designers from the week’s catwalk shows are on display to view in one of the many rooms. You may remember seeing these pieces in my LFW Day One post!

Catwalk Highlights

Run

Run was actually a presentation rather than a catwalk show. Guests could walk right up to the models as they slowly moved back and forwards which was great to see and get lots of shots. Having a presentation instead of a catwalk show means more work for the models as they are having to stay in character on the runway for a much longer time than usual. These girls did a fantastic job, and I just loved the vibrant collection!

This catwalk show was by far the most far out show both for distance and concept. It took my sister and I quite a while to find it but when we did the queues were easy to spot which went round the whole building. At one point we thought we weren’t going to get in, but we managed by the skin of our teeth and got quite a good view from a standing position near the end of the runway. As you can see there were hundreds of origami birds hanging from the ceiling. The message was really dark and powerful from the clothes. Very creative and memorable.

Point Blank

One last presentation to wrap up London Fashion Week Day Four- this time we are taken to the beach! Point Blank went for a beach concept and showcased swimwear and fabulous holiday wear for its SS17 collection. I loved the makeup and wetlook hair of the models and the music helped set the scene with crashing waves to make us feel those summer vibes!

London Fashion Week Day Two

London Fashion Week Day Two had me visiting one of my favourite places- The Grooming Room. Forward PR never disappoints at pulling out all the stops for bloggers, press and special guests at The Grooming Room and this season was no different. I had an afternoon appointment with the Sasoon hairstylists and a nail appointment too. This had me prepped and ready to go before hitting the road to my catwalk shows!

My Outfit

On Day Two I wore a floral co-ord and nude duster coat from Boohoo. My necklace was Butler and Wilson and my bucket bag was from Today I’m Me.

I had some lovely orb earrings to complete my look which were from the Vivienne Westwood collection available online at Tessuti, one of my favourite sites for those special pieces. I paired the earrings with a bright lip and some lashes from the KISS collection. My hair was styled so that the earrings were on show at all times, I just love them!

London Fashion Week Day Two took me to the Morecco show. I think all the colours were used for this season’s show as each look was as vibrant as the next. A lot of flowing materials and wrapped designs were displayed during the show. It was good to see Morecco as this was my first time viewing this specific designer. The show was a part of Fashion Scout at Freemason’s Hall.

Stay tuned for Day Three coming soon!

petite model update

Petite model update!
I am absolutely thrilled with the response I have had over the past few months about my new modelling company: Petite Model Management
I have just completed the final test shoot and I am so happy with the results so far! I have a grand total of 19 girls ready to be signed in September.
I will be working with the models to build up their portfolios if need be and will be organising various shoot days so that we can all get together and have some fun in different locations around London.
A few ideas put forward already are:

Bath and flowers shoot

Calvin Klein wet hair shoot

Asian bridal style shoot

Alien makeup (inspired by the new Star Wars campaign for Max Factor)
I’d love to show you a few of the models on here, but for more please see the Twitter page here and the Facebook page here

If you would be interested in joining the petite model management team as a model, please submit a clear headshot with no makeup plus any work from your portfolio to petitemodelmanagement@gmail.com

To be eligible you must be no taller than 5″7 and must be able to travel to London if you are invited for a test shoot. Size and age does not matter

News for July!

It’s July! And it’s crazy hot here in London today- temperatures are soaring upwards of 30 degrees in this heat wave and I’m at work in a gladly air conditioned office!

So, I thought I would let you all know some exciting news happening this month and throughout the summer-

I am in the preliminary stages of setting up my own management company for Petite Models!

The company will be called Petite Model management and I am so thrilled to be working with some amazing petite models over July and August for test shoots!

I feel really passionate about the industry of fashion and modelling, and have seen for a long time now that there is a huge gap in the market for petites. Of course some agencies do have a petite range of models, but this is disproportionate to the majority of models on their books, nor is there an actual UK based agency specifically for petites. So this is what I will be focusing on trying to create this year!

If you are under 5”7 and this is something you would love to know more about please get in touch! I am welcoming all ages and ethnicities to come and test shoot with me in London for free this summer!

Also if you are a MUA or designer and are looking to collaborate with a bunch of petite beauties, also please get in touch!

I hope that this will grow into something big through word of mouth and through social media- at the moment I have a twitter set up and once I have selected my models from the test shoots I will be setting up a website!
