Once again that wonderful time of year for Spring Summer Fashion Weeks has come and gone and I have made it through all the beauty and busyness to share some of it with you. Here's a look back stage working for one of my favourite designers Erdem, presenting their new 2020 Spring/Summer collection at Grays Inn Gardens for London Fashion Week. The gorgeous show displayed bursts of bright floral prints on ankle length gowns paired with wide brimmed hats that brought together a chic victoriana vibe.
As always it was my pleasure to be part of the team for the legendary Val Garland for the day,...

Whilst working during London Fashion Week and assisting alongside the one and only truly amazing inspirational and creative Val Garland for the delightful designer Temperley London, I got the chance to try the new make-up collection and lipsticks by Rodial called Suede Lips.
Rodial Skincare was launched in 1999 with the huge success of the famous Dragon Blood range and drive and determination by Maria Hatzistefanis herself to bring this inspirational brand to the industry.
The Rodial Suede Lips were the first lipstick to be launched straight after the Temperley Show and available to buy online...
Whilst travelling and working in London, Milan and Paris for the fashion season which can be grueling but I secretly love every single second of this part of my career.
During the last month I have been working backstage on the show teams assisting Val Garland, Miranda Joyce and Lisa Eldridge on the amazing shows of Tod’s, Temperley, Hogan, Jill Sander and Sonia Rykiel and the newest designer Matty Bovan.
When I come back from working backstage on the shows I do find it difficult to switch off and stop the mind buzzing…..what product has saved me during the fashion season ?
I was really busy last week working at London Fashion Week. The first show was Matty Bovan and Lead makeup artist is Miranda Joyce and the makeup by Marc Jacobs.
The second show I was involved in was Temperley London with the famous Val Garland and model Blanca Padilla. Rodial makeup was used and there are some lipsticks that have been launched by Val and Rodial at Harrods. Click here to see more about Rodial Skincare

I have been sitting here for a while trying to express in words how I feel being picked to assist backstage with Val Garland for ISSA Spring Summer 2016 collection.
I can honestly say I am speechless - which is rare for me!
