What a fantastic day! My first opportunity of organising a fashion show was delightfully given to me as today we showed of the fantastic brands that House of Fraser has to offer!
After four hours sleep last night my nerves were really shadowing over me, not forgetting the unfortunate stress of picking up a PA system this morning on my own and from the other side of London! This made me incredibly delayed and incredibly stressed so when I finally did arrive in store I was left right and centre with my models and therefore leaving me minimal time to get looking pretty!
All in all, this was a fantastic day and I really could not have done it without my friend and colleague Duran Abdullah (foxy deedee) she was absolutely amazing and so so creative! She also turned out to be our hair stylist and oh my I have never seen something so exquisite and interesting! I will definitely be posting some photos for browsing at a late stage, I really mean it when I say she is incredible.
We were also fortunate enough to have a fabulous guest Nicole Mullen, as a fashion journalism student studying at LCF Nicole writes for a number of magazines including the London word, where she will be hosting a review upon our event! I am beyond excited to see this published but in the mean time please visit her journalism blog http://androgynousyouth.onsugar.com/ for a number of inspiring Fashion stories!!
An all in all fantastic day and start to House of Frasers brand event! I can’t wait to see the photos!
A new day tomorrow lets make it even better, remember House Of Fraser Westfield (Shepherds Bush) tomorrow at 4pm and 7pm…. Don’t miss out on all the fun and discounts we have to offer on luxury handbag brands!
See you there!

The Fashion Show(created by DeeDee Fox and Charlotte Andreas)
I can’t believe it’s done already and also how much of a success these last few days have turned out to be.
Myself and Charlotte both work for house of Fraser in Westfield’s (shepherds bush) as sales advisors. We have both been there for just short of one year. I work full time and Charlotte works part time but we still managed to form a strong friendship. Over time in the company I have taken on more responsibilities across the fashion accessories department which has lead me to all sorts of opportunities. I am now a fully trained skills coach, store ambassador for Links of London, and also hold the duties of visual merchandiser on the department which I absolutely love!
After recently being inspired from my VM training in the Ted Baker head offices, I proposed the idea to Charlotte that it would be amazing if we were able to promote fashion accessories in a fashion show in time for House of Frasers Brand event. Me and Charlotte have always shared the same enthusiasm for a chance to get creative so she was of course up for it straight away. We wrote up a proposal and handed it in to my manager Darren Kane the next day. We didn’t think he would even accept but we tried our luck and to our surprise he was completely up for it! Excited as we were, we had just under 2 weeks to pull off a show that 2 perfectionists would be proud of!
During the next 2 weeks, myself and Charlotte spent everyday rounding up models, photographers, dancers, journalists, posters , meetings and using our days off as opportunities to get together and plan for the show! We are both so grateful for the support that House of Fraser offered us.
This was a great chance for me and Charlotte to show exactly what we are capable of and also gave the opportunity for other people to show off there potential. I am very passionate about creating platforms where all types of artists are given a chance to shine and this was no exception!
Thank you to everyone that helped! I will credit everyone in a separate post :) you are all amazing!
I cleansed my soul this week and now I’m ready to take on the world again!
