The Edinburgh Metropolitan Fashion Show

Over the past few weeks, I have had the chance to work with The Edinburgh Metropolitan Fashion Show. It aims to bring together designers, boutiques and different brands for a fashion show with different themes. EMFS also works as a platform for designers to showcase their work to customers to show a varied option within the UK. 

A Touch of Pink Collection A/W14 by Christine Watson

Christine Watson's A Touch of pink collection was one of my first collaborations with EMFS. From the castings to the show, it was my first experience of a real fashion show. Her collection, A Touch of Pink was beautifully designed and I spent the majority of my time backstage in awe at the clothing.
What attracted me to Christine's designs was that it was both feminine and edgy at the same time.

"Bri's Boutique was inspired by the beauty of an old fashioned garden, fresh and covered with wonderful flowers creating soft forms. Brigida wanted to create something unique to Edinburgh... Bri's Boutique- a breath of fresh air"

Aside from the fashion show, I was also part of the advertising team for Bri's Boutique. The Boutique has been open for almost two years and this was a great opportunity not only to get some fantastic photos, but to help spread the word about Brigida's lovely shop showcase some of her dresses.

I would like to give a huge shout out to Farah Al Zadjaly (aka FAZ Fashion Diary) for giving me the opportunity to join the Metropolitan team. It has definitely been one of the highlights of the year and will miss you when you move back to Dubai.
