As you may know I competed in a fashion designing competition last week and..... *drum rolls* I CAME IN SECOND PLACE!! out of 17 super talented designers. I am so honoured and surprised. It's quite a big deal for me. My prize is that I get to show some items at hollands biggest fashion fairs. Which is so cool!
The show was organized by a company called MAFB which means Music and Fashion Battle. They did a great job and the show was amazing!
This is the overall result and I'm really proud of it! I made and sewed everything myself and I've never had any help in how to sew and stuff so I pretty much taught myself to do it.
We were one of the first to arrive at the venue so we had the entire space to our selves to get the stuff together and ready.
I asked Wies to do the make-up and she did a fabulous job. The models looked stunning!
She also has a blog so if you would like to check that out click here
I chose for a braid all around the head wich me and my sister (the model under here) did.
I thought it would look very lovely and girly, which it sertainly did. I'm still very happy with the results!
The other models were all friends of mine and not from model agency's or something like that.
I think they did a great job and I'm very thankfull that they showed my desings in such a lovely way.
and.... she also did my make-up!
It was quite a mess backstage due tothe 17 designers and all of their models (max. 6 per designer) and their hair and make-up teams.
(and these pictures were made at the beginning of the day, imagine what it looked like at the end...)
This is what the venue looked like. The show was held in the 'Centrum voor Beeldende Kunsten' in Amsterdam. I think it looked quite professional! (which the show was though)
I think something between 100 and 200 people fit in there, and the place was packed!
Well that was about it that I have for you today, more photos will follow as soon as possible!
I really enjoyed myself that day, and I still can't really believe I won...
(most of the pictures are made by Wies)
Have you ever been to a fashionshow?
Lots of Love,
