ShowTellShare One Hundred and Forty-Four

Show/Tell/Share: A fun time! A *good* time! A successful evening of hope, and great fashion…

Models (L-R): Oboya, Susan, Hawanatu, Madeleine, Holly, Abuzar and Tamika. Photo by Hayley Hughes. Clothing by The Social Studio.

I’m still in the process of collecting and collating photos from the night. The ‘eventspage is a good place to start, and it also includes the many, many *wonderful* people who helped make our night possible. Thanks and Hooray for you all! xo

Also, for a first *fabulous* look-see of the models and The Social Studio clothes-styling, head over to Fashion Hayley‘s blog here.

Now here’s a few ‘in-process’ photos…

Who knows exactly what I’m saying here, but clearly all the models like what they hear! We did have such a lovely time, and I *super* thank all these young people for graciously offering to give their time to support The Social Outfit.

Practising and preparations at Planet

Earlier in the day, I was binding together out ‘Case for Support’ with a bit of handy sewing…

This is some of the models, Sindy, Kit and myself rehearsing at the Mahjong Room on last Monday night…

And my own outfit for Thursday night. Naturally all The Social Studio… xo

On Friday it was back to the grind with my university work, which continues much of this week too… Phew! Until it quietens down a bit, I’ll try and stay in touch and I *promise* to get all the fashion photos to you as soon as possible! xo

Sneak peek! Just a short post as we count down to our supporter event this Thursday evening. Nervous! Excited!

Here’s a couple of deliberately blurry, but hopefully *fun* in-situ photos from the Monday evening rehearsal night. You can see stylist Sindy from Africa Konnect, just a couple of the *great* young people who will be our models on the night, and some of us from The Social Outfit. It was SO lovely to meet our models, and everyone’s getting excited now…

Also, in the true spirit of *community support*, a SUPER thanks to William from the Mahjong Room for letting us use his restaurant(!) space with short-notice to sort out outfits and practice for our big day.

Please on Thursday night wish us *luck*, and we’ll share with you how it all goes, of course! This night begins our more public journey of showing people what The Social Outfit could be in Sydney, and how we could work with fun, fashion and creativity with our refugee communities.

Photos from the night will be up on the weekend in full. If you want other sneak-peeks, then like our ShowTellShare Facebook page, or check out Twitter with #TSOShow.

And because being busy can often come all at one time, here’s me today as I race off to university for a conference (including me giving a paper on Friday – eeek!). Of course, I’m wearing The Social Studio. I’m totally in the *vibe* now! ;-) xo
