Earls Court Fashion Show
By Sofie, aged 13
On Monday 6th June at 8pm, By the Bridge took an excited group of foster children to see one of the Earls Court Graduate Fashion Week shows. The Rochester fashion graduates were able to show off their creative talent to a very eager audience.
There were 7 people that were able to attend the fantastic opportunity that By the Bridge offered. It was the perfect amount – which basically means no one else would have fit in the car!
First, we all went for a nice meal at Nandos and got to know each other. Then we set off and although it took a while, Tracey and Annabelle were able to get all us inside with only minutes to spare till the doors closed.
The 24 different designers all had amazing talent and entertained all viewers.
In my opinion, some of the outfits looked a bit too flamboyant, it was unbelievable, from cages and balls on people’s heads…to really long waistcoats, it was all simply…fashion! Although most people wouldn’t go out in half the garments!
It was interesting to watch real life models and how they really walk on a catwalk.
All in all it was a great opportunity that might not come again so we have to make the most of it and see some pretty unique ideas about the future of fashion…what will it bring next?
