Fantasy Fashion

Annually at our school we have an event called Fantasy Fashion. In this, any student can take part in making a dress and modelling, with some pretty good prizes at the end. So as you can imagine, backstage at a fashion show must be hectic. However, unlike the dressing rooms of Prada and Chanel, we did not have manicurists, hairdressers and makeup artists, but a bunch messy-haired, self concious and creative teenagers. But when you have many 11-18 year olds sharing one very small space...well it pretty much speaks for itself. The judges were a buyer from Marks and Spencers, an Old student, founder of our school fashion magazine and Sam from 'Sam and the Whomps' (does "Bom Bom Bom" ring a bell?). We worked as individuals but enjoyed the event very much. Although we did not win, we still had great fun walking on stage with god-knows-how-high shoes and theatrical makeup. Pictures of the show might be up soon so watch this space :)
