On the 22nd of June this year, I found myself on the train heading to Birmingham, clutching a bag containing a small collection of my jewellery. Hotel du Vin was my destination, to sit in front of a panel of judges from the Midlands Fashion Awards.
I was early (I have this thing about being late!) and so spent half an hour or so in the foyer of this lovely hotel before being called in to talk about my work. Having never done this kind of thing before, I had no idea what I was going to be asked and and around twenty minutes or so, I was heading back out onto the streets of Birmingham. Don’t ask me what was asked or what my reply was as I honestly couldn’t tell you!
On the train on the way home, I could only hope that what I had said impressed the judges enough…
And to my delight (and astonishment!) it was!
I am a finalist in the Accessory Designer of the Year category of the Midlands Fashion Awards 2019!
The final is being held at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Centre on the 11th of October where I will be exhibiting my work and watching the catwalk shows before the Awards Ceremony announces the winner in each category.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
