Last week, in one of my proudest moments, we launched The Fashion Galleries. A one stop shop to discover the world’s best emerging fashion talent.
Held at the prestigious Conde Nast College it was a full day event that went into the evening. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done personally. With only a small team and most of us working full time too, you can imagine how hard it is to pull an event like this together.
But God when you see it all come together, it’s almost impossible to see that it came from your head and.
This was the first business I ever launched. I was 23, but I wasn’t ready for how big it was. Six years later, I’ve had enough retail, digital and fashion experience to do this!
We have 20 designers, seven of which showcased to press and bloggers next week and they’re so talented that I’m beyond honoured they want to be part of my vision.
The amazing Avant PR worked with us and got us so many amazing publications down. Even Vogue came. That was a defining moment for me.
And with amazing partners such as Mannequino who have these xxx that we displayed our designers work on, the event literally lit up.
Guests also sampled Jealous Sweets which an obsessed with. Gluten free, vegetarian, and under 180 calories per pack. I mean hello!
And God can we talk about the Unhampered Girls who create such sweet treats that you’ll never want to eat anything else again!
