Fashion Fast Forward Style Scout Social

If you read my previous post, you would know that I was in a Style Scout program for Fashion Fast Forward and was one of their 15 finalists. I am happy to be able to announce to you all that I am one of the 4 winners of the Style Scout title!

For those who don't know what Fashion Fast Forward is, they house all of UK's top high street fashion labels - Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge and Ben Sherman.

We were supposed to style an outfit for a mannequin using the labels under Fashion Fast Forward as our challenge. Here was mine. The mannequin was wearing a chiffon chain dress, brown biker leather jacket, and a white feather necklace, all from Topshop.

Joining the style scouts competition has been cray cray. I was freaking out the day before submitting my loan request. I wanted it to look perfect, but I had little time, and many aspects for my outfit to think about. I was extremely nervous standing in front of a crowd, but I simply had to suck it up and talk about my look while being coherent and not sounding like a complete dork.

Above: Me with the other Style Scout contestants. We made good use of the photo booth machine that Topshop provided and hogged it for quite a bit.

In all honesty, I still have no idea what place I can take in the in the fashion industry in the future. Fashion allows many people to play out their fantasies and dreams and to me, styling is like the personification of that fantasy in your head. I love being able to bring that fantasy to life.

A big thank you to everyone who supported me and congratulated me on the win! Dream a little dream of me.
