The announcement has been made… I’ll be a member of “The Fashion Front”, an official blogger for Full Figure Fashion Week™ 2012. One of a select few who will have full access to all areas of the event; the in’s, the out’s and behind the scenes. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited this makes me.
The event is from the 13th-16th June (just 12 weeks away) and will be hosted in New York, the city that never sleeps, the place where dreams, even the highest of the highs can be reached. I’m planning to go for 10 nights so I can get over my first long haul flight, the then four days covering the event and afterwards have enough time left over to work on a few projects and maybe do a spot of work experience. I refuse to go to New York just for just a couple of days and I’m not going to waste any opportunity ahead of me.
There is a grey cloud amoungst all this sunshine, in order for me to attend and fill my coveted position I require sponsorship to attend. I’m saving, I’m selling clothes, I’m working hard on freelance jobs and I’m sending out sponsorship proposals. Attempting to get to New York twice in one year is madness but like I said, I have the potential so I’ll use every opportunity I can to make my dreams come true.
You can help me too you know! Just by commenting on this post, sharing your excitement and the reasons why you’d want me to be there will be seen by those potential sponsors, your voice could be the edge to help get me get through to their accounting department… *sigh*… Can you believe any of this is even happening?
I’ll be posting about FFFWeek often, the planning, the packing, the hotel, the outfits… everything! Finally all those little details I’ve had to hold back can now be shared. So many things to organise and plan in such a short time, I think my biggest hurdle will be figuring out what to wear to the All White Cruise on the very first night of FFFWeek… more on that later but for now I thought you might like to hear the song currently on repeat in my head.
