Fashion in Motion

 My first fashion show.

Today turned out to be an amazing day. It was suppose to be a 'catch-up' day, but it ended up being a day of glamour and fun. My beautiful friend, Nat gave me a last minute invite to watch Fashion in Motion, a Fyodor Golan fashion show at the V&A Museum. I literally dropped everything I was doing and tried to figure out what on earth to wear. This left me little to no time to do my hair or make-up, let alone eat. I managed to get to South Kensington and track down Nat just in time. We stood in the queue for mere minutes before we were on our way in to find our seats. We were both first time fashion show goers and were extremely excited for it to begin. Finally the lights faded to black. Gentle, but urgent music began to play, with a swell of blue light coming from behind a statue. The first model entered and we were on our way. The collection was beautiful. With bright vibrant primary colours, contrasting soft fabrics, and harsh geometric shapes, it made for a very exciting show. It was over before we knew it. "Again, again" Nat cried. It's true, I definitely could have watched it all over again. 

Here are some photos I managed to catch while watching the show, along with some pictures of Nat and I. 

 Beautiful electric yellow high low dress.

 Stunning mosaic bodice/corset. 

Such beautiful beaded detailing, along with unique hair and make up.

Also, as of yesterday I inherited a ridiculous amount of old clothing from a family friend! Talk about being a lucky lady! Hence a little bit change in style and new-to-me designer names!!!  

Thanks for tuning in!
