We've only just come down from the fabulous experience that was St Albans Fashion Week! Organised by the incredible Ellena Ophira, a local wonder-woman who is also responsible for the Style in my City blog, St Albans' first Fashion Week was a huge success. The week, which ran from 28th October to 3rd November saw city wide events and offers from a wide range of local fashion and beauty retailers.
On the actual day of the show, we had to get all our garments to the cathedral ready for a full dress rehearsal. First we had a walk-through for the models, and then we did a full rehearsal with outfit changes! Boy! There were bodies and clothes everywhere!
Meanwhile, there was a huge amount of work going on to transform the Abbey from this (see above)
To this! The beautiful St Albans Cathedral looked absolutely incredible - transformed for the evening with a chic white catwalk and stunning lighting - the atmosphere was electric! And finally, it was time for the show to begin!
The first half of the show saw a variety of local retailers showcase their ranges including womenswear, menswear, eyewear and millinery. We were lucky enough to close the first half and here are some photos of our fabulous models...
