STOP PRESS! / Throw Back Thursday - Sisters are Doing it For Themselves Fashion Show @ PLACE / Ladywell

Here's a cheeky little Throw Back Thursday to when myself & the other Indie Retailers here at PLACE / Ladywell organised and put on a fashion show, showcasing everything we had to offer! The reason I have gotten all nostalgic for March is that a review of the show has finally been published in the quarterly student magazine SMITHS from the wonderful talent of nearby Goldsmiths uni.

Take a look at the full article HERE, check out the pic of me swishing about my purple hair (which is now red) like a right show off.

Also here are some of my fave pics from the evening! I hope we can put another one on soon, although it was massively stressful to organise in the end I had such an amazing time even if the audience had to endure me modelling!
