Holiday fashion experience

So I'm back home, full of sensations, tanned, a little tired from the trip and pleased with the way things went, even though they didn't really go to plan.

I left home with hopes of practicing my photography skills at the Holiday Fashion Week but instead ended up practising my... modelling skills. One of the designers' models fell sick, and I was at the right moment in the right place to be picked to replace her. Therefore, I spent the whole time backstage waiting for my make-up and hair and photographing the process of preparation for the catwalk shows.

The day on which we went to the fashion week there were 14 shows on agenda so there was a lot of fuss taking place before the start.
Polina Moroz made it into the final in the V A Model contest in 2008

Models for X'U by Ksenia Marchenko

Boots from Artem Klimchuk's show

Remember Veronica? My frequent outfit feature.

My hairdo

I have no idea who he is

I wore a flesh-coloured swimsuit (teamed with heavy army boots and edgy gothic bracelets)

And here are some sneaky photographs of Artem Klimchuk's show made from backstage by another model while I was busy.

We all had a lot of fun after the shows at a pool party. It was very warm at night and we swam in the sea and enjoyed one hell of many cocktails. The rest of the weekend was full of sun, beaches, clubs, more clubs, more sun and constant party mode. Ah, I'm so happy the holidays are here - fully blooming both in fashion and in student life.

Enjoy the sun! x

That must have been amazing and thrilling experience.

Beautiful faces and interesting clothes- do we need to ask for more? Well, I think the question is rather rhetorical... :)

With love,
