Bring Home Fashion

So tomorrow is the day of our fashion show: Bring Home Fashion. It's finally here.
This event my class at uni's (TFDM3) 3rd year fashion show. We are raising money for The British Heart Foundation and the theme of our show is 'upcycling'. We have created all of our looks from garments found in BHF charity shops with the aim of showing that 'one man's trash can be another man's treasure'. This year is the 50th anniversary of the charity and so we chose to show looks from the past 50 decades throughout our show. As well as designing and creating all of the looks in the show, my class has had to organise and run the whole event down to every last detail. This had been very stressful at times, but with two amazing class reps and everyone taking on different roles we hope all our hard work will pay off and we will pull off an outstanding event tomorrow night.

We had one smaller show in Gala last night which went really well and we had great feedback which made us all very excited for tomorrow's big event. (See link above to watch Gala show news coverage).

Please look at our facebook page here, and let me know if you are interested in tickets if you are around in Edinburgh tomorrow night. It will be a great night with our fabulous show, entertainment, an amazing raffle, goodie bags and a free after party at Cabaret Voltaire!....and lots of drinks obviously! What more could you ask for?

My friend Tiina's blog has a few fashion show posts. (It's written in Finnish though, but you can translate it if you like...or just look at the photos!)

Here's a wee link to my friend Lana's blog. Lana did our AMAZING illustration on the poster.
