As part of my fashion internship I had the most amazing opportunity to go up to the London ExCel centre and help out at the Style Icon stage for BNTML last weekend. Emily, my editor was speaking about the three AW trends shearling, leopard print and camel and us interns got to model the trends – which included a £399 shirt from Jil Sander and the amazing new leopard print coat from Biba at House of Fraser. Other workshops included make-up artists Pixiwoo and eco-fashion enthusiasts Global Cool. The main catwalk showcased collections from Tamzin Lillywhite, Richard Sorger, Liam Stafford, Bushra Ahmed, Jess Sayers and Sarfraz as well as pieces from Jonathan Aston (I am a huge fan) and Zandra Rhodes – Ashley Wallen’s choreography was perfection. Global popstar Jessie J also featured in the show with her infectious six-inch heels and famous black bob. I even managed to get my hair styled at Adee Phelan, and Joey Bevan’s fashion show on the Kiss open catwalk was another highlight. We also loved Chyna Whyne’s workshop on how to walk in high heels with safety, ease and elegance – google the Alexander Technique, every girl should find out more about it, plus no one can forget Charley Speed’s interview. No question I felt important sharing a green room with Emma Willis, Charley Speed, Alesha Dixon, Diana Vickers and the finalists from the TV show. For more information on what I got up to at BNTML please see the full write-up at which was written by fellow intern Lindsey, as well as the three looks we modelled which was written by my lovely editor Emily…
