YEP. I know what you're thinking - "OH. SO AINDREA FINALLY DECIDED TO POST ABOUT THE SHOW. ABOUT TIME TOO!" After like what, a month?! I'm a bad bad blogger. But I've got a video for you to watch so you can forgive me! :D This is going to be a long post. But trust me, it's a good 'un and well worth reading!
So i've finally decided to write about the 1.WO/MAN show I did with the BBC during London Fashion Week. It was SUCH a hectic day. Waiting for Vitaminwater deliveries, Fashion.Music.Style deliveries, sorting out models, mishaps with collection fits, co-ordinating the Dolly Rockers who were set to perform (<3) and alll whist being filmed for the BBC film which'll be on BBC2 pretty soon ;) Here's some behind the scene photographic evidence to give you a glimpse into the hours of preparation we had before the show ;)
Some more behind the stage photo's...
So after allll the stress had passed, runway rehearsals had took place and seat goodies had been sorted we all sighed in relief. Soon after, London College of Fashion official came in. Then the panic started as the queue built up in the hundreds! We let everyone in - bloggers, fashion press, buyers & a coupla slebs - and the looming securityman muttered something like "OI. SORRY LOVE, WE'RE AT FULL CAPACITY. NO-ONE ELSE CAN COME IN"
UH-OH. SPAGHETTIOS. Thankfully, more people could be let in as Frances of Happy Because, Shini from Park and Cube et al managed to come in (love you guys <3)
The Dolly Rockers sang "Boys will the Boys" - which, i admit, is still stuck in my head - clad in Dr Martens, ripped tights, cute tutu skirts and bundles of attitudes before strutting down the catwalk followed by our delicious models.
Anyone want to engage in a bit of "Spot the Blogger?" I invited a bunch of fashion bloggers to the event. If any of you are reading, THANKS FOR COMING! Was lovely meeting you all! <3 <3 <3
The soundtrack I here you ask? Its all about the chooooons. It was a mix of Tiga - Shoes (seriously. I could not stop saying "Whats that sound? Its the sound of my shoes" afterwards. Check it out"), Poppy and the Jezebels - UFO, Simultaneously by ??? and sounbites from Tristan by Patrick Wolf. The latter song was somewhat of the entire teams favourite song. Partly because we met him, partly because he rocks!
The shoes are by Irregular Choice! Aren't they darling? Thank you Danny Sullivan <3<3 You know, he stopped me before the show and was like "Hi Aindrea! ... I saw your blog!" Inside I was like *DIE.OMG.SAIDGSFIUGSDFSDGFS* But don't worry kiddos. I was soooo professional and although I can't remember what I said, it was probably along the lines of "Oh wow! That's so cool" Haha. Socially inept...
I spot Charlie Matthews from Pinstripe Prince and Constance Victoria! I'm winning Spot-The-Blogger ;)
& Check out the footage from the night in the form of the last snazzy BBC webisode. The hour long film will be on BBC2 probably by the end of the year, but I'll keep you posted! The video is just the runway performance, but for all the manic plus extra footage that wasn't in the webisodes, you should deffo watch the show when it's shown ;)
