Last month was my year anniversary trading at the Heresy n Heelz Manchester Alternative and burlesque fair and I put on my first fashion show there.
It was a great experience and the crew were hands down the most helpful I’ve dealt with. They made every effort to ensure the stage was dressed to my specifications, went though the pre-show announcement word for word to make sure all the info was correct and lit the stage according to the sequence and characters which really added to the atmosphere.
The show featured outfits from the Chimera collection (collaboration with chainmail designer Richard Ayres) and the upcoming Opulence collection, due to be Launched next month.
I choreographed the show myself, giving each model a character and specific role to play. he dramatization included knights, royals, maids, druds, and priestesses and convery a story of myth and magic based on Arthurian myth and Avalon.
