Matalan Video shoot

On Tuesday I was lucky enough to observe and event help at a the Matalan catwalk video shoot. I was very excited as it something I have always wanted to do, I had a great time and would love to do it again!

Sadly I arrived a little late and missed the part that I was looking forward to the most which was makeup and hair. The makeup artist was Maggie Hunt (which is actually the aunt of a very well know Youtuber) and Peter Beckett was the hairdresser, they both done an AMAZING job!

I actually missed the steaming but when I got there I got the chance to help dress the models and make sure each model was wearing the right shoes, accessories and outfit. It was actually far less crazy then I thought it would be, instead it was well organised and everything went really well.

The stylist was Nicole Smallwood who made each outfit look perfect, although Matalan did have some great pieces!
Final touches by hairstylist Peter Beckett
I love Matalans accessories especially the rings!
Great inexpensive footwear from Matalan
It was also great to see Catherine from Perfectly Polished again & it was great to meet Becca from Fashion Train and Vicki from Magpie Girl.

I must visit Matalan very soon as there are some bits and bobs which I need in my wardrobe especially some shoes!

I had great fun and it has made me realise even more that I definitely want to work in fashion when I leave university.  
Thank you so much for Matalan for giving me the chance to attend this event!
