This weekend I did my first trade show. London Edge is an 'alternative' trade show, which caters for some of the most creative, exciting niches in fashion and thankfully my jewellery went down a treat! It's lead to lots of exciting opportunities that I don't want to jinx just yet but hopefully I'll be able to share everything with you guys soon :)
It was amazing to meet some of my favourite designers and companies that I've looked up to since before I even owned a paint brush. I also got to see lots of great new brands and some of my all time favourite models!
Despite initial problems with setting up, thankfully everything turned out ok. I'm already starting to plan how I want it to look next time!
The very talented Prong were next to my stand, and had the most amazing models all weekend! I'm still a little starstruck after getting the chance to meet Morrigan Hel, a model I've admired for a very long time.
I was also very starstruck when I saw Ulorin Vex was at the event, but after following her work for about 7 years I knew I had to build up the courage to speak to her. I also gave her a few pieces of jewellery, how exciting! I made a list last week of the dream models I would like to wear my jewellery, and she was one of the top ones so that alone made the whole weekend worth it!
I also got the chance to meet the lovely lady behind Glamour Bunny and treated myself to one of their amazing dresses! I've never worn something that fits so perfectly, I'm definitely going to have to buy more of their designs.
Preparing for London Edge was the most stressful experience of my life, but it was definitely worth it! Now that I know what to expect hopefully September will be even better :)
