What a difference a year makes??

Well, it has been quite a year full of ups and downs, joy and heartache.

The year began with me coming to terms with the loss of my Mother who had always been a great strength in my life and dealing with the all of the hassle that went along with sorting out her estate and selling my family home of nearly 50 years!!!

But aside from the sadness I have had achieved some fabulous things this year so here are just some of the high points. And when I look back I think gosh have I really done all that and more and I do think that Mum would be proud??

NFW in March kicked of the year with our Vintage fashions show and fair - "Dress like a Queen" to celebrate the Jubilee.

I was featured in Vintage Life Magazine alongside many other lovely vintage folk, with an article on Matt Keller from Southern Retro and my name was on the cover of the swimwear issue I wrote for them.

I have had a few chances to present and organise something I love - fashion shows -
Gressenhall had a 50's day and I organised a fashion show on how to dress 50's style and then later in the year presented a fashion at Pop Up Vintage Fairs at Spitafields Market.

I styled a vintage photo shoot for Flush fashion magazine and had a lovely article written about me in both the Eastern Evening News and Eastern Daily Press thanks to Emma Harrowing at Life Matters.

It has been a FABULOUS year with many exciting and wonderful things happening.  Next year sees the launch of my vintage inspired collection which is both amazing and scary at the same time. NFW which promises to be bigger and better than ever before and who knows what else the Fabulous Miss K will find herself doing in 2013 - we will just have to wait and see???

Work in Progress

Apologies for being a bit lax in posted in recent days but I have been working hard on getting the Fabulous Miss K collection ready.

I have decided on the pieces to showcase at NFW next year and my fabulous pattern cutter is busy putting all my ideas into practise!!!

Every once and a while I get a wobble thinking that I am taking on a huge task but it is all coming together and everyone around me seems to have faith so I am sure it will work out fine in the end???

Fabrics have been sourced and I am now looking into UK based manufacturers to make the collection for me, I am working on ideas for shoots and events to launch the collection and get it out there - so much work to do and before I know it March will be here!!!

Just to give a you a sneaky peak at what is brewing here is my "look book"......

I am getting very excited now but just a little scared too but nothing ventured nothing gained and this has been a dream for a very long time and dreams really can come true!!!
