In Love With Fashion Event In London.

Evening all, rather late post which isn't usually like me!! I have work nice and early tomorrow and quite a busy weekend ahead so I thought I would post tonight and take my time on everything! Last night I was very lucky indeed to be shortlisted for a design competition for In Love With Fashion, a beautiful online brand who are always bang on trend. I didn't ever think I would get any where but when I heard the news I went through to the final 5 I couldn't believe it! So off I trotted to London yesterday and was lucky enough to stay with one of my most beautiful friend Megan, who has helped me so much with everything. 
Anyway, the event was dazzling and rather glamorous. Not just because of the people but even the cupcakes were glittering! After many (and I mean maybe too many) champagnes, conversation started flowing and it was so great to see everyone mingling and enjoying the night! I was so nervous about answering questions and seeing my dress that it was all a bit of a blur! So any way, I will let all the photos do the rest of the talking and I hope you had a great time if you were there. If you weren't I really hope you like seeing my design and the photos! Let me know what you think, sadly I didn't win but being shortlisted was fantastic. You never know maybe one day I will be lucky enough to tell you guys I have won something and that will be the day I will not believe my luck. Hope you like the photos! <3

  7. You are so lucky to have that amazing opportunity even if you didn't win :) that dress is so pretty, I love the tapestry detail but why didn't you put it on the real life piece? but it still looks good though <3

    1. That was In love with fashions decision to make it lace rather than tapestry, maybe because of expense purposes or something like that but I think it works this was also :) xxx

  8. That's incredible. It's lovely when you see a simple idea become reality. Your dress is beautiful too - is it from Topshop? I remember lusting after a similar one or infact that one quite some time ago!
