Reddskin at large! FHFW in pictures!

Saturday 20th September 2014 went in a whirlwind of colour, music, make-up and laughter! The Catwalk Show at The Railway Telegraph took place showcasing local designers taking part in  Forest Hill Fashion Week. All I remember that I was working on about two hours sleep and that I had a LOT of fun! Thanks to Kate Addoh, Catwalk Organiser whose patience (and capacity to send copious emails in the wee hours) knows no bounds! Thanks also to Louise Brooks, Charlotte Cameron (unofficial self-appointed Reddskin show segment photographer), Super Models and booty shakers Layia Johnson, Sharon Samuels and Jordan Bolessa and the WONDERFUL designers I had the privilege to work alongside. As well as the talented Make-Up Artists, dressers and helpers who made this AWESOME day possible!

Make yourself a cuppa and pull up a seat. Here is a small selection of photos from the day. Enjoy!

Well well well! What a day! I don't need to tell you how much fun I had and you can see that my models weren't too shabby in the boogie down stakes either!
