In our line of work, we've met many models, and even the mixed raced ones say they struggle for work!
As much as people want to believe that as a society we are progressing and moving on, there will always be some people who are stuck with old distorted perceptions and mentalities, and unfortunately some of those people may be in positions of power, meaning they can manipulate other peoples suggestions of beauty and its representation. So come on people, Let's make a change!

So todays agenda was to style for two photoshoots with one being covered by BBC3 for a Documentary.
The shoots were for the 'Black but Invisible' campaign and the 'Make your Mark in Fashion' catwalk show in September 2008 as part of London Fashion Week.
Working with Celebrity Photographer, Patrick Anderson, Make up Artist, Denise and Fashion pieces by Maame Baryeh, Mia, Junky Styling, and Yemi O was a pleasure. Also great recognition to the styling assistant on the day, Christine who was a God send.
Apart from that, look out for the three part documentary due to air on BBC3 as part of the Mahogany Models 'Black But Invisible' Campaign, details soon to follow.
To see the final shoot prints, check our portfolio.

We attended the new designers showcase at Croydon Fashion week or Croydon Fashion Festival (all the same!) with Afrotherapy Pal Joseph, which displayed fashion pieces created by upcoming new designers in the croydon borough.
With new designers such as Rakhi Peethamber, Nkwo, Gabriella Ravello, Urban Buzz, Audrey Nosworthy, Jam London, Cinderella's Box and Harsh displaying their collections, it was clear to see why Croydon Enterprise felt the need to give new designers such an outlet to get exposure. We're so loving the collections by Nkwo and Harsh which displayed beautiful creative pieces.
Apart from that, the workshops and other shows Croydon Fashion Festival put together was an insightful way for Croydon Enterprise to bring recognition to those in the borough for their talents and growth, what about the rest of us you ask? Well, maybe next time, hey!!
