If I Were...

Going To The Oscars. I would wear one of these (I limited myself to choose only from the couture 09 shows so far).
Christian Dior

Jean Paul Gaultier

Elie Saab

Christian Lacroix

That was soo bloody tricky to decide upon, in the end i just closed my eyes and pointed at the screen to choose which images to use. Aren't the couture collections, so far, just excellent? All of them! I'm very impressed i must say. What I wouldn't do to own one of the Dior gowns. John Galliano is genius. I would like to be his friend please. If only.

So my last post was ageeees ago about my interview for Uni. I would like to thank all the lovely people who gave me advice, it seriously came in handy! To be frank i thought I'd done shit, i had to present my portfolio and i was sooo nervous I can't remember what i said or what she asked me, it was quite horrendous. Then i had to fill in a questionnaire about myself and my knowledge of the industry, at this point I thought about the advice people gave me, to be myself, so instead of putting quite reserved answers i put what I really wanted. Then we all left thinking we had two weeks to wait for the decision. 2 days later i found out I had got in!!! SUCCESS! I can't tell you how excited i was and still am! there was screaming and crying and shock and a lot of frantic phone calls involved. I now know where i'll be for the next 3 years, what an odd concept!

If anyone needs me i'll be at Portsmouth Uni, just strolling along the beach, you know, thinking of the collection I have to design for my own catwalk and the work i have to do with contemporary designer's that show at London Fashion Week. What a boring life it's going to be.

Sarcasm aside, i am terribly nervous that i'm going be in wayyy over my head. Hell! for the moment i shall just enjoy and be incredibly excited!!

A serious thankyou to the advice givers, cheers alot guys!

Elie Saab dresses are gorgeous as always, but I'm sure someone will be wearing it already. For the sake of being different and completely standing out, I'd choose the Lacroix or one of the Dior pieces.
