Miss Africa, Perth 2011
So instead of a post about me and my travels today, here is a post about my work at home.
The month of may was a busy month for me, organising this trip, working at the shop and fashion styling for my own business. Three Saturdays in a row were dedicated to Miss Africa contestants, working with the talented team of Joachim Guay and Celine Prinoux, photographers and a number of other creative minds.
Five contestants asked for my stylistic help, with the results below.
I stuck around for the days shoot, helping carry equipment, making minor adjustments on location, stopping people from walking into our shots etc. I really enjoy the atmosphere and energy of photo shoots, and love seeing the results after a long days work.
I also got to know every girl in the contest, and they truly were a beautiful group of ladies. All very smart and with such inspirational stories to tell. I know they have forged friendships with each other.
The final show was held on the 18th, and I was sad to be missing it. At the equivalent time, here in Sicily, I sat refreshing my Facebook page eager for results. Finally, Nunu updated her page- Mary won. Whilst every girl was worthy- I cannot be more pleased with the result. Another of ‘my’ girls, Sharon was runner up. Stoked.
