Long time no speak, Life has completely taken over and I just don’t have a free minute anywhere. As a result my YouTube/ Blog has really suffered but I hope to get back on track in the next week or so, so please bear with me.so of course as pictured above I couldn’t start off any post without a wee sneaky selfie with my backstage BFF’s Rosanna from http://silverbrogues.com/ Christopher and Scott, after all we are so manic that sometimes we need to just have a wee break.
This is my seventh season backstage and it also marks BFW tenth year. Day one this year was local designer night with a great mixture of established designers such as Una Rodden and Grainne Maher and new faces such as Gordan Donaldson and Julia Sokele.
Models in look one of the night.
This season I was once again paired up with the gorgeous Mairead, we had a lot of fun during the fittings , fittings are when you try everything for size and ensure that there are no issues going to arise during the show such as wrong sizes that need pinned etc.
The Minnie mouse look from local boutique Diamond Dolls was definitely a favourite for us both but a special mention has to go to the drop dead stunning Blush bridal boutique Sequin number. Photos don’t do any justice to just how sparkly this dress is! Unfortunately I didn’t get many piccies on day one but I think day two I made up for it.
Above are the first looks from day two but lets go back a couple of hours, Day two was high-street which also brought with an Argento preview event which I was very kindly invited along to.
Fashion show director Cathy Martin with some of the models.
The event was beautifully set up and all the jewellery looked amazing, if you are as much of a magpie as I am then you understand why I was so excited. I huge thank you to Ian from http://roguesandbrogues.blogspot.co.uk/ for being such a lovely host and also for giving us the lovely wee surprise, I got a beautiful necklace from the Karma range.
So once I left the world of sparkles and West Coast Cooler I went back to my day job so to speak to prepare for the show. Now I changed models for this night and I was actually part of the Male model team which I have never done before.
These are just a few of the boys, Connor and Piaras’s looks from the show.
The hair and make-up on day two was probably my favourite with a mix of glitter by the bucket load and colourful hair pieces.
so without making this post even longer I will end it now, I cannot wait for tonight because not only do we have renound make-up artist Paddy McGurgan creating amazing body painting looks but we also have the charity challenge featuring 10 local bloggers and stylists creating 10 looks in collaboration with local charity shops , all the looks are then available to buy after the show!
I will make a huge picture post when all three days are over ! xx
