Silver

My collection
 













After a great show, I was asked to collect this:

 
 
The whole REMIX experience was awesome! And I'm so glad that I met all the other designer-kids with whom I became really good buddies. Thanks for this opportunity to IFF, MIFUR, ITALIAN VOGUE and BFTA. I loved it!

Showtime!


Then the show began! And then I saw HUGE Altynai on the screen.
 
 
The movies that we all made previously in the studio were shown on the big screen.  Here is mine!

It was really exciting to see my designs on a real catwalk. Facing the judges earlier was intimidating, but it all was forgotten when the show began. I wondered if Franca liked my designs...?!

Backdrop and models


This was my backdrop for the show. I Really loved it! 




When people started to gather for the show, the backstage was hectic. But everyone knew what they were doing, and we were holding close to our models to make sure everything was worn properly. No drama. It was more exciting to be backstage! 

 


 
And I had the most beautiful models! Chiara, Rita and Karina.
 
 

Day of the REMIX Show


The day of the show was approaching quickly and we had full on schedules. On the day of the show we managed to see the MIFUR exhibition. It was huge and crazy.
 
By late afternoon we all were at La Pelotta and the place was transformed for the show.

It was fantastic to see on each chair a feature on REMIX detailing all of the finalists

The fresh grass was laid down and vogue goodie bags were on the benches. It looked awesome!

Amongst all the buzz backstage, designers were chilling.

Fittings with Italian Vogue


Afterwards we had to drop off our garments and attend fittings with Italian Vogue stylist Alessandro.

Everyone was blown away by La Pelota space... it simply looked HUGE.






 Here are some images from the fittings. And of course, I had to adjust several things on the spot.

 

 
 

Making a Movie


Next day was lots of fun as I got to experience how it feels to be a model in front of the camera! My hair and makeup was done by the coolest Italian duo Roberto and Claudio from COTRIL. I really liked what Christian Helmer came up with...a short black and white video shot about each contestant with a voice over to be shown to the audience as an intro before one's collection. Really smart.

 
Fun in the studio

Arrival in Milan for REMIX




Trip to Milan for the REMIX final was more than I expected.  I have met so many amazing people and the finalists were from all around the world. We were treated to the best Italian pizza in town upon arrival.
 
It was worth going through all that visa drama and 12 hours flight marathon just to experience good food with a great group of people.

Exciting Times :) I have been selected as a finalist for REMIX




So much has happened since my last post! I was so pleased to hear I was selected as a finalist for the International Fur Federation REMIX competition. My BFTA Competition entry was submitted and I was selected as one of 12 finalists. I am so happy to be jetting off to Milan for the Final. REMIX is to be supported by Vogue Talents!
