blogger meet up

The Matalan Shoot, London...

Sunday, October 17, 2010

So finally here are some of my many photos from the Matalan catwalk video shoot last week,
as I said in my previous post I flew to London ridiculously early Tuesday morning
and headed to the fabulous Shoreditch Studios for the day.

First I was introduced to Hair and Make up.. how gorgeous is the model?

I had the lovely pleasure of meeting these lovely ladies and fellow bloggers: Becca from Fashion Train, Catherine from Perfectly Polished, Sabrina from a little obsessed.

The studios were in a beautiful building, it was two separate rooms divided by these beautiful brick was used at the changing/staging area with blogging station in one corner and kitchen stocked with drinks and coffee and nimbles to keep us going! The other was set up as the catwalk.

Couldn't resist the cliche in the mirror shot..

The Catwalk...

The make up..oh my..

The shoes!!
Loved these patent leather heels with bow cute..

The jewellery...

The Clothes.. my favourite has to be the Be Beau collection..

The stylist working with the model to make sure the dress looked just right before heading down the runway..

Taking a break and getting in some blogging and much needed tweeting!

It was such an amazing day and was great to see all the fabulous pieces hitting Matalan this autumn and winter and to see how things work back stage at one of these shows! It was so nice to meet the Matalan team and the lovely Olivia who I feel I know so well through all our emailing! And of course the lovely Becca, Catherine and Sabrina who where all fabulous! Thanks girls for making me feel welcome at my first proper blogger meet up and event! :) xo

  15. This looks like it was a lot of fun! Glad to know you had a good experience being there.

    I don't know too many people allergic to cigarette smoke but I know exactly what you mean about headaches. Also I end up sniffling so much and start sneezing like crazy when around it. It makes it hard to talk a little too for some reason. I am so glad that I am not around second hand smoke at all these days. . .but I was all the time. Thankfully my dad will smoke outside for my boys' sake (wish he was kind enough to me when I was a kid and asked him to smoke elsewhere). My dad is allergic to cigarette smoke too but he smokes, so it never made sense to me at alllllll. I'm glad to hear your boyfriend quit for you. that must have been hard, no? My husband used to smoke when he was about 14-15 but that was before I met him, otherwise I would have never dated him (I was strict on a no-dating smoking policy). haha.
