Thank you so much to all of those who took the time to vote on my A Man's Story competition entry. After the votes were cast, the top 30 were shown to Ozwald Boateng himself and he chose 5 overall winners. I am extremely excited to be 1 of those 5, giving me the opportunity to meet one of my all time fashion heroes at his design studio on Savile Row. PINCH ME! Boateng took to his twitter account to congratulate us and say that he was excited to work with us...AHHHH!!!!
Heriot Watt Fashion Show 2012
As I had stated previously, there was a selection process to determine who would be showcasing their collections at the Dovecot on the 7th of June. I was playing DJ for a day in the room which was horrible, as when my collection came in I had to look at the wall because it was so awkward. Anyways! Long story short I made the cut. I feel very privileged as our year is extremely strong with everyone having worked so hard for the last 4 years.
www.hubtickets.co.uk for tickets!
I am vey excited to announce that I am one of 10 graduates in the world to be invited to this competition. 50 other students have been selected internationally by their course leaders to be up for the chance to present our current collections in Paris at this event. Winners will be announced on Monday! I am not under any illusion that I will be successful in this, as I know how unbelievably talented the other students are, but to be 1 of 10 invited is MAJOR!
I think that's everything for just now. The Heriot Watt School of Textiles Degree Show opens on Friday so if you are in the neighbourhood (unlikely) come along and have a look at the amazing talent coming out of the school this year.
