London Brick Lane Show

The last week has been pretty hectic for me, but it's what I like so I'm not complaining!  It's been nearly a week since I've moved back home from university and I still haven't unpacked, which maybe is a good thing as I'm planning on moving to London in no longer than 2 months!

Yesterday saw our end of year show in the Old Truman Brewery just off Brick Lane and not only did it show the fashion designers garments they created, it also showed examples of work from graphics, makeup, styling, photography, design and more departments.  There was about 70 in total and I was honoured to have two examples of my work up that come from Vanity Nightmare.

'Queen of the club scene' and 'concealer can't hide all my pink nightmares' were the two images that were chosen and these images almost define the idea I created for Vanity Nightmare.  These two lyrics come from two Jeffree Star songs and Jeffree really is the definition of a Vanity Nightmare.

Now that I'm back home I can start to go through all the makeup I've collected over the past years, including products I haven't even used!  Some of these products are Illamasquas Liquid Metal which I still haven't opened.  Makeup for me is like buying a rubber in a place you've visited.  It's just so beautiful you don't want to touch it.  Maybe that's just me.  You have no idea how many rubbers I have that aren't even used...

I'm looking forward to what the future may bring for me, sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
So to end on some lyrics, I think this is pretty fitting for my situation and every other student who has just finished their degree.

I look once more
Just around the riverbed
Beyond the shore
Where the gulls fly free
Don't know what for
What I dream the day might send
Jut around the riverbed
For me
Coming for me
