Graduate Fashion Week has been and gone for another year. I took myself off to London for the whole week and am still on a come down from it I think. What a week!
I was lucky enough to be invited to watch the Norwich University of the Arts (NUA) show but because I knew having watched it last year that I'd really like to watch it via my camera in the photography pit I asked my uni if I could shoot it so I ended with a double hat on as I was there as a VIP for Norwich Fashion Week but I was also there as a student too. Either way I was camera ready and willing to learn. A lot. And I certainly did.

I'm also feeling pretty refreshed, it's true a change of scenery really is as good as a holiday and just being in a different city, having a different routine even just for a few days does the spirit good. This wasn't a holiday, this was a working week for me but when you love what you're doing it doesn't feel like work.
I don't say this to sound like one of those positive messages that gets shared on social media (often with swirly fonts and glitter. Often both...) I say it because having spent many years working in environments when most days felt like I was making another step in to hell or at least the city of Yawnsville. As I write this I know I'm lucky and I appreciate that probably more because I've had to do the jobs which I would rather not have to return to.
But I digress, so a week away and I'm back having seen some amazing creativity which has left me feeling so inspired from walking around the amazing exhibition a few times and shooting some more fashion on the runway it was all pretty wonderful to say the least and I wish the graduates luck with whatever is next for them.
