Heriot-Watt Graduate Fashion Show

On the 24th I helped out at the 4th years graduate fashion show which took place at the Dovecot in Edinburgh. Most of us were given the role of a dresser, where we were each assigned one model that we would help get into each outfit. Me and some of the smaller students had to be pair up with the smaller models, I never thought about it before but I guess dressers have to be tall too! so they can reach zips etc.
This collection was by the 4th year I interned for, Helen O'neill. I helped sew some of the beads on the scarfs. It's turned out really well, I think hers is one of the most cohesive.

This is the model I dressed, her name is Sarah, and she was lovely. The shoes she is wearing I had to sellotape her feet into!

You might recognize this model, she appeared on Britain's Next Top Model, i remember rooting for her to win as she was the only one from Glasgow.

The first designers collection had the models dance onto the stage, I really enjoyed watching this one, the faces were painted as skeletons.

Check out the massive head piece one of the models had to wear down the Catwalk.

Heads used as props.

A dress made from horse hair! the picture doesn't do it justice, it came down the runway to really dramatic music, and then there was a small silence where you could hear everyone gasp.
