(I also had an interview after my day at LFW so had to dress to suit both occasions, oh and we had to wear black on our bottom halves as we were given a black Bora Aksu oversized t-shirt to wear on the day)


Hey ladies! If any of you follow me on Twitter you may have seen my excited tweet about interning at London Fashion Week! I was extremely lucky to have the chance of interning for the Bora Aksu show on Friday 15th, yes the OPENING day of Fashion Week! I was so excited but also very nervous as I didn’t know what to expect. When I got there I was soon to realise I wasn’t on my own, phew! I was hoping there would be other interns there and I was pleasantly surprised when about 10-15 other girls and boys showed up also interning!

How I got to intern at LFW?

Well, I just happened to be browsing through twitter and noticed a re-tweet about wanted interns for the Bora Aksu show, so I thought I would take my chances and I emailed Antony, who works for Bora and had sent the tweet. To my surprise I received an email back a few days later saying my day’s internship was confirmed for Bora Aksu and Antony had sent me all the details! Easy as pie really, who’d have thought it would be so straight forward!?

What the day involved?

If I'm honest, interning here was so rewarding! My morning consisted of moving one box about 10 metres away from where it was, having glimpses of the hair and makeup artists transform the models into the most perfect creations with their hair sleeked back and some with face jewels and masked covering their heads and faces. Then I got to watch the run through where it was super busy but whilst doing so a few of us had to fill each row of benches with some Bora information, including his press release for the collection. Then finally I was allocated Block A, where I would check tickets of those who needed help finding their seats and direct them… and that was all!

I was then able to watch the whole show and could photographs on my phone! Although, I was disappointed with how my images turned out; the background light for the catwalk was so bright the models faces were lost and pretty much all other details (I will be posting some tomorrow).

However, even though my photos didn’t quite turn out how I wished the experience was amazing! I mean I got to watch the Bora Aksu show at London Fashion Week, free of charge and at front row level… and also managed to bag myself a goody bag which was gifted to front row VIP’s… yes amazing right!? Luckily there were a good few spare so me and two other of the girls were able to take one… fantastic end to a great experience. I would definitely intern here again and the Bora Aksu show was just incredible.
