I had the amazing opportunity of interning at David Jones for their Spring/Summer show last week! I got to help back stage as well as with the pre-production, where I helped fit models, tape shoes and write up styling sheets for all the garments. Pre-production was super stressful and had me working over the entire weekend but was totally worth it! I learnt so much and was rewarded with being able to dress David Jones' current ambassador Jessica Gomes! It was a HUGE responsibility as she is literally the star of the event and receives a lot of press, so any failure on my part would end my career before it began!
All in all I had a fantastic time (stress included!) I was lucky enough to meet some beautiful and hilarious models ( Sam Harris follows me on instagram, She's the funniest girl out!) and I had the opportunity to walk the cat-walk as a stand in for Jess during rehearsals, which ended in me being a dork in front of the Stenmark twins and having them call me 'Jess' all day, It was also a great experience being a head dresser and having other dressers look up to me and ask me questions.
I would totally suggest giving head dressing a Go, But I think i'll be taking a break for quite a while!
Check out my favourite shots from the event!

Fun Fact: The pre-production madness and hair and make-up of the event was held in Santa's magic cave at David Jones' Elizabeth Street store. Lots of fairy lights and puppet elves!
Until next time! xx
