Preen Flashbacks and Adrenaline Rushes

While I was on exchange in London during my days in Fashion School, (which feels like lifetimes ago), I had the opportunity to intern for the lovely design house, Preen. I was asked to do some light sewing, prepare samples, and hand stitching in labels/buttons (oh so glamorous!) but I was secretly hoping to be asked to dress for their London Fashion show.

It's exhilarating to be a dresser backstage. There's always a model searching for a lost shoe or a missing earring and a make up artist standing by to apply last minute touch-ups. And just when the show starts, your model is coming back for the second outfit, your adrenaline kicks in and you're frantically zipping up that dress on her skinny frame. You then madly rush her back in line again to stomp down that runway, cool and confident.

Their look has definitely evolved over the seasons, and has grown up in way. I love what Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi have done with their Fall 2011 collection. There's a real emphasis on simple silhouettes and sophisticated styling with punchy geometric prints, hand beaded tops, and simple shift dresses with a touch of hand craft.
