"I've been known to throw watermelons, backstage, at people who are giving me news I don't want to hear. But I never aim for the head." Tori Amos
This was me on Saturday morning. What an outfit of the day, I think it is my favourite so far. Sadly, my Fashion Swap in association with Ikea and Belfast Fashionweek got postponed due to the weather. (It is now on Thursday the 28th of March but more on that later). So I curled up in my dragon for a while, caught up on blog posts and then meet my mum and little sister in town. I think my mum feels sorry for me cause I can't buy anything. I just follow her around as she tries stuff on and comment on things like a good little daughter should. Though I must be honest, she bought me a shirt. It was more to keep her happy than anything, every two seconds was can I buy you this? can i buy you this? How about this? NO MUM! I accepted the shirt gracefully though, just to keep her happy of course. So that's a total of 3 items of clothing bought for me in 2013, 3 items of clothing in 3 months, 1 for each month. I can't believe I have gone from buying nearly 3 pieces a week to getting given 3 items of clothing as presents in 3 months. Here is the shirt my mum got me, I know another one shirt but this ones has buttons!!
After a lovely afternoon with my mum, it was off to the final night of BFW which I was starring in! Backstage really felt like Belfast Fashionweek, everyone was buzzing and the atmosphere was hectic. Eleven female models, two male models, 9 children models and 9 hair models. That's a lot of foundation, hair spray, pouting, posing and catwalking. Of course as I was backstage during the show I was unable to take photos of the gorgeous High street looks but here is a collection of backstage photos just for you lucky readers.
After the main catwalk show was the Andrew Mulvenna hair show. Andrew wanted to take the audience on a journey through hair styles of the past, present and future. There was 9 girls in total, 3 for past, 3 for present and 3 for future. I was one of the future girls, channelling my inner super hero! My hair was backcombed, sprayed gold and extensions added. I have never had extensions in my hair, my head felt so heavy!!! I then had a mask painted on my face to complete the look. As the hair show was more relaxed, we were able to have more fun with our poses on the catwalk. I think there is a photo of me going around where I have arm in the air like supergirl about to fly off and save someone in need!
So that is it, Belfast Fashionweek over for another season! This has been a season to remember! Well done to all the BFW team, Andrew Mulvenna & his creative team, Paddy McGurgan and his make up team and the CMPR team for another great year!
