Tom Ford was one of my biggest shows this season and I was just so excited when my agency told me I had to go to his headquarters for a request casting. It was the same place I had travelled to for those two weeks when I worked there so it was very familiar to me and I loved seeing all of the staff who I had spent so much time with over those weeks in May. I walked for Mr. Ford, pill James Scully (the casting director), Kady England (the stylist) and some of the Tom Ford team and I guess they were happy as I was given my looks and they began fitting them for me. I returned two days later for one more fitting the day before the show. The show itself was held in a venue in Victoria but it felt like a set from a movie; the whole room was covered in dark mirrors, even the floor was a cold reflective metal that glistened when the spotlights struck it. The opening music was Heaven by Jay-z which I just lovedddddd as I love Jay and it got me in the correct mood to walk for the show. We had to be there four hours before the show started at 7:30pm which allowed us time to get ready at a nice pace as oppose to rushing which I liked and I got to catch up with one of my closest model friends Betty too! The atmosphere before the show was electric as all the girls practised their walks in the beautiful shoes and we discussed who was sitting front row- Andre Leon Talley being one of them. Mr. Ford walked amongst us chatting away and complimenting us which was lovely and I even got a picture with him despite being told no photos (Im such a rebel). Once the show began I was filled with a buzzing excitement and couldn't wait to walk- it was amazing. You couldn't see the audience because of how bright the lights were but it felt amazing to have two looks instead of one, giving me the opportunity to walk again. It was over so quickly- there wasn't even a finale but everyone left smiling. I headed home so happy with how my show season was going and went home to have a meeting about my blog before I packed and left for Milan where I am right now! Wish me luck!

This would actually be the second time I was heading there and I was and still am very apprehensive as to what is in store for me this season as last time I came I didn't book any shows. Milan is notorious for it's use (or lack there of) of black models during fashion week and it's often a city that gets skipped by a majority of black models because of this. Many black models see it as a complete waste of time as when in New York and London they were booking ten to fifteen shows then come to Milan and book one or two it even none which is frustrating. However, online I'm not the type to give up so I decided to go to Milan this season seeing as I have done well in both New York and London so may as well try my luck here too. As soon as I got off of the plane I went to the bathroom to freshen up, sale brush my teeth and put on some mascara as I would be jumping in a car and going directly to castings for the whole day. This is the normal routine for foreign models in Milan as their public transport system is really difficult and sparse so it would be impossible to make a lot of castings. In the bathroom there were four other models doing the same thing and we gave each other the knowing smile- today is going to be a long day. One cool thing about being driven in Milan I the fact that most of the drivers are just young Italian male students who do it or extra money- not to mention getting to drive around a beautiful model all day lol. It makes the journeys go quicker having someone roughly my age to talk to but to be honest I slept in between each casting so couldn't have been that much fun to drive lol. I made around 12 castings yesterday and booked two shows for today as well as a fitting for another show so I'm really happy that I'm working but lets see how the week progresses as all the big shows are towards the end of the week- wish me luck! photo-45 At the Prada building they have this amazing slide... I want go on it so badly :(   (my driver for today was amazing by the way and has the sexiest car)
