Catwalking.com

Never did I expect myself to be discussing my collection from the catwalk on my blog but here it is. I’m still overwhelmed that I was even selected for the Graduate Fashion Week runway, never mind being one of the chosen top 5 selected from the UCLan show to be put forward to the Gala show! This is the best way to give everyone a fully detailed description of what pieces made up each individual look as a whole, from the fabrics to the details of what you may not have been able to see just from photographs alone.
