This week was the "Mid Cheshire College Fashion show" where 12 months of my work was exhibited through my final dress. 
The show ran both Thursday and Friday evening at the Winsford Lifestyle centre. 

Here are some "behind scenes photos'

Here is my dress, on the thursday night. Just before the dress went down the catwalk I used black thread and did three tacking stitches in the puff sleeve to add extra volume.

Overall I really enjoyed the fashion show, and was pleased with my garment. It was amazing to see the work, effort, preparation, time and money that is all fuelled into running a fashion show, and experience that first hand. Seeing my initial design, transform into a dress and be able to visualise it on the catwalk was also outstanding and gets me exited for next year!

I also enjoyed the behind scenes preparation, working with the models dressing them and ensuring they are suitable to go onto the catwalk. Although I was worried about the quick changes, and ensuring that my model was ready the adrenaline takes over and you just have to keep up and do it!
