the fashion world is as odd as any

This week has been one of those weeks where it reaches Friday and you find yourself thinking 'it's Friday already??' And yes, it was Friday yesterday. It was my first shoot of 2013 - at Haydock Park Racecourse for a 'races' themed editorial. It was me and another model, Kaitlin and we were both very FREEZING models. Usually I can take the coldness. I took it yesterday too, but it knocked me for six. I was asleep by 10.30pm and slept for about 12 hours.. Anyone who thinks being a model is all glamour, please do try standing outside in a tiny dress trying to look beautiful and elegant in weather that is misty and cold enough to see your own breath each time you breathe out with a team with you who are all wrapped up in their warm winter layers. This is an example of how the fashion world is as odd as any.. Nothing makes sense yet we try our hardest to make ourselves belong; it's mid-winter and we shoot spring/summer. It'll get to summer and we'll be shooting winter woolies and ski-wear. It is indeed a mixed up world we live in.
It was a good shoot to start the year of work with, and was wonderful to meet Matt Stansfield the photographer. As always, one of the best things about my job is working with new creatives and meeting new people all the time. It keeps life from being dull.
