London Fashion Week A/W 2012

So the Big Smoke and I meet again.. & This time i'm much less anxious than my 1st Fashion Week, Although this time round i'm walking in bigger shows, it's still Fashion Week, It's still terrifying and probably when I feel at my most venerable at work. I don't look at my job with false hopes and dreams, with modelling I am a total realist. I'm 5.7', it's really not tall enough for the requirements of modelling. But, I'm lucky that my limbs are out of proportion and I photograph like a giant, but when it comes to walking on a catwalk, it becomes very apparent that I am in fact a 'SHORTAAAYY' Last fashion week, before the show, I was just like 'What the hell am I doing here' but after walking in not only the 1 expected show but in fact all 6 of them that day, faith was restored in my fight against not being tall enough, further to that the organisers even invited me back to walk in their bigger shows in Fashion week in February, praising me on my walk. DOING IT FOR THE SHORTIES. So here I am, It's February and i'm back.

Yes, getting wiggy with it. Bringing Lou Clave's trend to fashion week. I freaking love getting wiggy with it. No back combing involved always winning.

Obscure Couture's collection was by far their best yet, I was literary in AWE of every single last piece. These two women are not only essentially my boss's but two people I trust more than anything or anyone. Its rare to find people you treasure in your life in this industry and I frankly feel so privileged and better off in myself for meeting them. They truly have my back and for that I love them eternally. P.S It's Official. La is Obscure Couture's Muse.

After the show, the whole team partied it up in my new favourite place to be in London, Jalouse. if you've not been. GET YOUR ASS THERE! Man I have the best night in such a long time. & I really was blessed with the gift of the gab. Thanks to Ms Chloe Frankie Peers for hooking us up with an unforgettable night.

I'm glad to be in London, I feel focused and energised to SMASH it again.
Stay tuned, This year is going to be B.I.G
Also, Everyone reading this who had supported me & pushed me to this point.
