So…. I know I mentioned this before, but I never got round to actually finishing my post on it, but here I sit, on a chilly December day, 4 months after SFW and i thought… I’d actually get this post up.

SFW was a first, I helped organise the event and it was hard work! haha, but such fun! Here’s the official website

As well as being on the management team I was also a designer… I know I posted some sneaky peeks in the run up, but incase you missed them, I designed a lingerie collection inspired by and incorporating vintage fabrics and and lots of lace and saucy sheer fabrics.

I have somehow managed to loose all my photos from the event?! Don’t ask me how, but I will share a few with you from other talented photographers. Firstly a few backstage shots taken by the incredibly talented Tori Clarkson

My collection was inspired by the backstage of a burlesque show, dressing room glamour if you will… I wanted the garments to have an old look to them so incorporated a lot of vintage fabrics and upcycled old garments. I also hand customised some existing lingerie to give it a Mia Mai look. Here are a few shots from the catwalk, images by Tori again and also the equally talented Keith Woodland

I am waiting to get a few more pics, and am also in the process of organising a proper photoshoot of the collection…. mor on that later, but I’m sure the images above give you a great idea of what the collection was like! Do you like?
