Last night, the O2 Academy in Boscombe saw our final end of year show.
Getting everything in order and backstage was a bit manic, but I tried to get everything in order as much as I could, and then I handed over to my dresser, hoping that I hadn't forgotten to tell him anything vital!
At 1.30 i watched the Gala show dress rehearsal that was performed to a school who had come to watch as part of a higher education day, where all the designers were able to spot any mistakes on the models!
At our exhibition stand (which was transported from GFW) all our portfolios and business cards were all displayed and I had quite a long chat with Terry Mansfield, president and chief executive of The National Magazine Company; director of Hearst Corporation, which was an honour.
I then had my fitting with the models, which was just as well as I had to make a few changes to who wore what and what order they came out in.
The day went really quickly and it wasn't long before it came round to 5pm when I had my show! I was really pleased to be sat with my friends on the front row and I was so relieved that it all went smoothly.
The Gala show was after, at 7.30 where I watched from the balcony with a glass of wine cheering my friends along! Then straight after that the awards were given out. I was extremely happy for my friend Robyn who won the award for innovation and she made a really good impromptu speech!
The private view took place after that and then it was time to go home!
Overall I was really pleased with how the show went, and it brings me even closer to graduating which is very exiciting!
The next two things coming up in my calender are the Bournemouth exhibition, and results day...
