Slightly Crazed...

24 hours to go... Lalalalala. Dissertation hand-in is almost upon me, and I know already I'm not going to be getting any sleep until those 24 hours are up. Oh well!

So to let off some steam, I'm going to post a quick preview of my coverage from last night's CU Amnesty Ethical Fashion Show...

It was a brilliant evening, and I do, on that point, need to say seriously well done to the organisers... They had great brands showing and some interesting speeches, and overall I think they did a lot to raise awareness of the need for eco-fashion and conscientious tactics when it comes to the clothes we wear. I'll be posting several times on the evening's programme, message and more specific design spotlights over the next couple of weeks, so bear with me!

But here are a few photos from the ever wonderful T-B to whet your appetite... ;-D 

We had dance...
We had drama...
We had fierceness and froufrou...
And of course... We had Lily Cole!
I promise MORE SOON!

GOGOGO Cassie!!! Get that dissertation done!!! *CHeerleads a little more, wishing a) she'd ever been a cheerleader and b) that she could think of a good rhyme*

That fashion show looks like a lot of fun!!!!! We've got Oxford Fashion Week coming up... the first one, but it seems a bit expensive for me to go, particularly when the money's not for charity...! I might make it to the fashion debate at the Union though!

A, lucky you..! Sounds so fun...Great photos, too. (Always are!)

Hi,
I like your blog. We both left comments on Aussie Fashion...so I'll ask you the same question that I left on his blog.
Are people walking their dogs...and is the fashion there in England to have the dogs wearing little outfits? :) it is the fashion here.

Looks like fun! When I first saw the picture of the dancers (before I read the text above), I thought they were models falling, not dancers, I was like, "Oh, no!" Glad to know they were just getting down and dancing! ;)

Thanks for your sweet comment! <3

Oh wow, I love Lily Cole (well I am a bit ginger so I'm biased)! I know how you feel, well I'm only in my second year but had 6 assignments in one month so I can totally relate. I'm only just coming out of the daze from it now to face exams! Not only that, I've imposed a shopping ban upon myself for 40 days.
