Last weekend we attended on Fashion Show LIVE at Luton Carnival Art`s Centre.
I have to say it was a quite good event. For the organisers this was their first ever fashion show, therefore I do not really want to say anything negative, as for a first show It was quite enjoyable. Although I think it was much more fun as a visitor than as a designer, because I had to face some problems what usually does not occur. Fortunatelly the visitors didn`t really know about any of these problems at all.
The stage and the atmosphere was amazing. I loved how they prepared the stage and the the whole room for the event as that truly looked luxurious and as a plus, we even got a cake to celebrate at the end, a very delicious one :) They put a lot of effort to make the whole venue look stunning. I loved the balloons at the entrance, the photobox, the catering, the cake, the whole venue was perfect!
Have a look on the event`s Fbook page and get to know them :) https://www.facebook.com/FSLACADEMY/?pnref=lhc
New summer dresses and chokers added for sale in my Online shop I have been very busy lately and had tons of photoshoots (just to mention I had 3 this week) and I still don't have pictures of all the new items I created
You know, being an emerging designer, with not having thousands of pounds income, I had to learn to make the most of my possibilities. I tought myself how to model, how to pose, how to do make up, how to do hair and I even tought my boyfriend how to take fashion pictures using only his phone, not an actual professional camera. We made such a great team, that my favoruite pictures are the ones taken by him using his phone. When It is not possible to get a professional`s help and you do not have endless possibilities, that is the time when you are forced to learn new skills and develope yourself. This is what we have been doing for 5 years now, and I can say, our work gets better and better everytime. Do not give up, just keep learning and keep fighting for your dreams!:)
So this is what Budapest Fashion Week was: This was my first individual fashion show in my home country and I felt so blessed as I got such a nice respond from everyone. Before this show, I have never sold anything immediately from the runway, but this time, some people felt in love with some designs that I had to sell my original sample pieces just after the show. How amazing is this?!
This collection is very personal for me and It helped me to start a healing process in a very rough time of my life. This collection, called Eleven, dedicated to my father, who I lost meanwhile working on my designs. The fact, that people loved it so much and all the good comments I got, helps me a lot and I really appreciate it.
So far, this fashion week was the smallest, friendliest and calmest show I ever had, which felt quite weird after all the craziness of the London shows, where everyone was rushing and tearing garments and usually have 30 seconds to change outfits on models. This time we all were so chilled and calm, plus we had more than 5 minutes to change the models with 4 helpers and they were extremely helpful.
With this post, I would like to say a huge Thank You to the whole team, to the organizers, photographers, models, my friends and my family, you are amazing!
Finally fashion week is done :) I was too busy to post an update about the preparations because I was sewing untill the very last minute.
I started working on my 'Eleven' Resort Collection in January but I had to put it on hold for a while. I started finishing the last 5 looks in March and I had to finish the collection in our Hungarian studio based in my hometown. The last two weeks were really really busy, but I enjoyed every moment of it. In this post I wanted to share some moments of the preparations and introduce my Hungarian workspace and let you have a look of how I was working on the new pieces. Enjoy :*
