Probably one of the most surreal moments was receiving a phone call out of the blue from Gok Wan….if I hadn’t already heard that he was coming to the Cardiff area soon then I would have definitely thought it was someone having a laugh!
Apart from being tongue tied and giggling like a fool I can’t remember much of the conversation….only that I was on a high for days after being asked to join him in Cardiff to do a Fashion Show with him! He wanted to put my collections on the catwalk but at the time I was studying to be a stylist with the London College of Fashion so I asked if I could be with the styling team as this would really help with my knowledge. I had a fantastic day from start to finish….my good friends and Designers: Nicola of ‘Twisted Thimble Couture’ and Clare Johns of ‘Clare Johns Label’ had their collections showcased and I tried to capture as much as possible on my camera 🙂
I was hanging out with the make up artists in the morning who were outstanding, most of them were from London and worked on TV Shows normally so it was fascinating to see them do their magic! The event was held at the New House Country Hotel, Cardiff
Gok himself was exactly as you see him on camera, full of fun and positivity – he had the guests at the event laughing all day, everyone loved him!
