REFLECTIONS // June 2015

Monday, 6 July 2015

June has been a really crazy month for me! To start, I had the incredible opportunity of being at Graduate Fashion Week and staying in a gorgeous flat on Brick Lane for the duration of it. There was also a second home-coming fashion show in Birmingham, which made for a very an emotional end to my university journey. I also turned 23 this month which I enjoyed celebrating with my friends and family. Last but not least, I started this blog in June to give me a creative outlet and a focus now that I'm done with university. I hope you've enjoyed reading my posts as much as I've enjoyed making them.

Here are a few of my photo memories from the month:

1) Breakfast at Cereal Killer Cafe on Brick Lane. My uni girls and I visited this cafe three days in a row whilst we were staying in London during Graduate Fashion Week. This place is decked out with cereal memorabilia from decades past, and you can mix and match your own perfect bowl from a huge selection of cereals from around the world. There are also cereal cocktails to choose from. This one pictures is called 'Double Rainbow' and is made up of fruit loops, fruity pebbles, freeze dried marshmallows and strawberry flavoured milk. I highly recommend this place to anyone who likes their breakfast with a side of nostalgia!

2) Pretty little succulents on our University's GFW stand. At Graduate Fashion Week, each University has their own stand to showcase the work of its students. My university's stand was particularly amazing this year: It had a really cool industrial feel, contrasted with some pretty potted plants. I adore cactuses and have a few of my own at home, so I couldn't resist taking a little snap of these cute little ones on our stand.

3) Models lining up backstage wearing my collection at GFW. This month started in London, where I was showing my graduate collection in the Old Truman Brewery for Graduate Fashion Week. While the fashion show itself was on May 30th, GFW crossed over into June and I've been enjoying all the buzz from it over the last month too. I also had the opportunity to show my designs on the catwalk for a second time in Birmingham. The response my collection has received has been absolutely amazing and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me.

4) Photo booth moments with my bestie at Rough Trade. One of my favourite parts about coming back home from uni has been catching up with all the friends that I'd missed seeing while I was very busy finishing my degree. I've had some lovely times with wonderful people over the past Month, like this day out in London with my best friend. We went to Rough Trade East for a bit of record shopping, had the most amazing sourdough mac n cheese toasties at The Big Chill Bar, got our nails done together at Imarni Nails, and had a cocktail on the rooftop bar at Queen of Hoxton. A fabulous day out - We always love our "friend-dates"!

What are some of your favourite memories from June?
