After an incredibly early start, I arrived at Somerset House in the morning!
I spent most of my day printing out exhibition passes, re-stocking show bags generally helping people with information on the event :)
The thing I definitely enjoyed most throughout the day, was watching everyone coming in and out, and witnessing some of the most awesome/crazy/incredible outfits! There was so much style in the room I was not quite sure what to do with myself... I wish we were allowed to take pictures! Alasss, due to the fact I was working, I was not allowed to use my camera :(
BUT! I witnessed many a beautifully dressed person during my day of working. I saw an amazing pair of Miu Miu teacup heels (which I was incredibly jealous of), the wonderful peter-pan-collared Orla Kiely number, and many many other things that caught my eye.
One lady had a sort of pointed shouldery-wing type contraption on her shoulders, each with a row of about ten barbie heads stitched along it... it was just a little bit of a head turner. :)
It was so interesting to be around people that have such a strong personal style, it inspired me in a way, into a new way of thinking :) When I see all these people wearing crazy outfits, I never look at them and think 'oh my gosh, what ARE you wearing?' but instead, I think to myself how incredible they are to put together and wear such an outfit, but also I admire them for having the confidence to pull it off, and also how the fact it is obvious that they are so passionate about their own personal style.
I did not really expect to see anyone famous, although after chatting to the other volunteers, I got slightly excited and started to become constantly on the look out for anyone I knew. It's hard to look for those well knowns when there are so many people who are dressed in such a way that they look like they should be celebrities!
But, for those of you who watch Britains Next Top Model, you will know Louis Mariette... (the headwear/hats/jewellery designer/ judge on BNTM) he was there! & came over and said hello, and did his signature pout for a nearby photographer :)
My feet hurt, and I have to be up again super early in the morning, but I shall be writing about my day tomorrow & any exciting events :)
Have a happy weekend!
