Aside

Andrea Cullen

Hey guys πŸ™‚

How are ye? Haven’t posted anything in ages. Still no motivation 😦 Sorry about that but thank you for sticking with the blog.

I wanted to let you know that I went, last Monday, with the great fashion designer and student, Andrea Cullen (read the post about her here that I did). She was in the final for the DCU Young Designer Competition at the Helix. The competition was on Tuesday, 26th of March, and unfortunately she didn’t win but she was Top 10 in the whole of Ireland πŸ˜€ She is sooo talented. I took some photos of the fitting and tried to be ready for when the model walked out at the show but wasn’t fast enough with my camera so I used the phone. Unfortunately it is a bit blurry and you can’t see it in all it’s glory under the lights. But as you can see, with the photos below, it was gorgeous.

The model’s name was Kate and she was gorgeous and her walk was perfect. The make up and hair was already done before we got there but it turned out to actually go with Andrea’s garment and the way it was styled with the boots. As you can see she was also creative with the boots and decided to use a piece from what you put on a horse as the accessory for the shoe. The tights also made it have a grungy vibe to it and you can totally see this on the streets.

This garment is the first of her collection which she is designing for her end of the year project. She will have 5 other ones which I’m excited to see and hopefully I will be able to be at the graduate show where her full collection will be showcased. What she is thinking for her show is brilliant and I can’t wait! Hope I can be there though and if I am I will be documenting it πŸ™‚

I wish her the best always with anything she does. Oh and by the way I met her sisters and mother and they’re so nice, warm and kind. Such lovely people πŸ™‚ Her sister is a photographer and a talented one at that! Check out her blog and definitely get in contact with her if you would like to have some amazing photos to remember your special day or whatever you would like πŸ™‚

You are Beautiful!
