It seems only this morning that I was eagerly awaiting the first show to kick off and now we’re saying goodbye. For another year!
It has been fun blogging and reviewing the collections. And interacting with everyone along the way. It shows that blogging can bring good things (tickets to Ji Cheng) and how networking is super important if you wanted to get somewhere.
I have met some great people in just a short amount of time and who knows where it could lead. (hopefully somewhere bigger and better!)
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my posts. If not, I’m sorry. But I have thoroughly enjoyed writing for you guys.
Today was a day that proves “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”!
One of my friends that I got chatting to on here, Victoria – check her out! (http://vickystylez.wordpress.com), offered me two tickets to see the Ji Cheng x Sheme showcase.
Arriving at Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden, I didn’t know what to expect. (I knew it was going to be fabulous one way or another.) I met my friend Matthew and picked up the tickets for the show. Excitement kicked in.
I actually felt like royalty going into the hall. The grand walls and paintings were a perfect setting for a fashion show.
The runway room was amazing. Rows of sets were set out facing where the models walk and show off the amazing collection. Sitting down, I felt another rush of excitement as I realised this is what I want to do.
The light went down and a film played on the screen at the top of the runway!
It looked so professional, clean and got my attention right away. (I filmed a snippet on my Instagram: liampitts, check it out!)
Then the music started and every suddenly struck out their iPhones and cameras, poised ready for the first glimpse of the collection.
The first model walked out, stunning!
Then the next. Stunning!
Then the next. Stunning!
Everything about this collection was flawless. Right down to the tiniest detail on the models’ hair, eyebrows and lips. It was fantastic.
The outfits were gorgeous. Traditional Chinese dresses were worn by the tall models as they paraded down towards the press at the end, ready for that killer shot.
The lights went down. People applauded. But it wasn’t over! Just then, a woman dressed in bold white walked out and starting singing. I’m not too sure what she was singing, nonetheless it was beautiful.
Whilst see was singing, the models came out slowly and stood in parallel lines for the finale. It was spectacular, seeing all the outfits together on one stage.
Then it was over. But I was still buzzing. I wanted to do it again. Everyday.
Here’s a few pictures to document my day. 🙂 hope you’ve enjoyed!
