*note. i am in no means a model. or anything of the sort. i trip over my massive size 8 feet when im walking on flat ground, so i don't think im quite cut out for the world of thigh gaps and stern faces. however, my university held a fashion show to debut the work of first year fashion students, and my friend asked me to help out modelling a few of the pieces with other girls. it was really good fun and all the pieces were amazingly made, such talent! here's the 3 looks i wore :) (picture heavy blog!!)
thisss was look number one, and was a bit of a tricky one as i didn't want to have a wardrobe malfunction with the top! it reminded me of something scifi-esque, something a kick ass alien would wear to a party. the skirt was beautifully made, high waisted with huge chiffon pleats to create an amazing structure, and also feel feminine. the top was incredible, with a white bra attached to incredible huge sleeves which puffed out like wings. the back was a white mesh material which added a lovely touch to the outfit. the brief for the show was white on white, which bodes well as it allowed each designer add interest into the structure as the colour was so plain.
this was my favourite look. it could almost be an alternative to a wedding dress, it had a real bridal feel to it. the pencil skirt was amazing and fit so well (albeit a little too well and i had to kind to waddle as it was so tight) and the white mesh material adds sophistication with a touch of sexiness due to some flesh still being on show. the cropped top that went with the skirt was amazing, i love the floral bunches around the waist, again adding a different texture and structure, and the little mesh sleeves were a lovely touch. my absolute favourite look which i truly think would be a hit if it was sold in topshop tomorrow.
the third and final look was again a skirt and top. the skirt was a little similar to the first one, except the pleats were layered down rather than across. it gives an impression of a kind of rara skirt, and it super cute - would love fab with a black crop top. the top part gave the structure that the designers were briefed on, it clipped together at the front to create a sort of wrap round look, and again had quite large structured shoulder parts. the silky material was gorgeous, and gave the blunt structure the feminine touch.
hereeeeee's the make up! every model had the same hair and make up, creating a uniform effect. our hair was simply styled into a low and sleek ponytail, which looks really smooth and flattering against the outfits (especially some of the more eccentric designs which didn't need a crazy style to go with it). our make up was professionally done (i know i was excited too), and it was again a very natural sleek look, with dark contours on the cheeks to create structure and plain brown eyeshadows, and no mascara or eyeliner... the pop of colour came from the lip, which was a gorgeous greeny/blue colour which i ended up loving and refusing to take off (got some funny looks on the way home...) i loved the clean look, and the pop of colour was a welcomed change to the whiteness of the outfits.
i had a fab time doing it, and all the designers were so talented - i can't imagine the time and effort spent over each outfit, so they did an amazing job. in other news, I GOT SHORTLISTED FOR THE COMPANY BLOGGER AWARDS AAAHHHH!!!!!! sooo please vote fashionfumblings.com to WIN best personal style newcomer! click the link HERE and get voting! xoxoxo
