In The Name Of Charity.

Caro & I
From a full length, long sleeved dress. Skirt taken off and bunched, sleeves cut, back rouched and purple silk slit attached. Purple waist ribbon and matching 'mask'.
Lace detailing and buttons added.
Long floral, wide legged trousers made into 'knickerbocker' style shorts. My own chiffon designs with buttons added around neckline of strap top.

I'm all into my charity things. Teenage Trust. Lost Children of Afghanistan. Climate Change. Oxfam. It goes on.
Various events, donations and sponsorship have often happened on my part and here I combine fashion with charity.

The Four Seasons Charity Fashion Show, The Junction, Cambridge.
Design brief: select items from Oxfam/British Heart Foundation and create them into designs to wear at the fashion show.

Some people re-styled, I completely re-created. Deconstruction. Reconstruction. Sewing. Decorating and so on.

The evening was a great success with items for auction from LFW and some top companies. Work experience with a fashion design company to be won by the best outfits. Stalls selling the best of Oxfam and BHF.

Hair done at Scruffs. Make up by Clarins.
Workshops conducted by Nikki Goldup.
