It was a lovely evening at Firtstsite filled with fashion contributions from local students and designers, and dance performances from myself and a talented group of girls from the Sixth Form College; all in aid of The Russ Foundation.
The fashion collections were great - my favourite being local designer Hasseena Mungroo's beautifully elegant womenswear pieces. I particularly liked the little black number, which boasted a gorgeous woven section at the top.
My scarves featured with the menswear collection - which worked a treat! It was great to see the designs in a different context - and shows that they can work for men as well as women!
Having performed my solo piece (Liquid Dance), I sat comfortably to enjoy the Sixth Form College girls perform Jai Ho. I taught them the routine over merely 2 hour-long sessions. They rehearsed hard and pulled off an outstanding performance on the night. It was fantastic! Needless to say I am very proud of them. The formations worked well, and although it is a shame that nobody could see the routing directly from the front, everybody loved the dance.
