ShowTellShare One Hundred and Forty-Three

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

ShowTellShare One Hundred and Thirty-Eight

Show/Share: A busy day yesterday: meeting with some of our supporters who are helping to bring together our November showcase event…

And it certainly helps to maintain a positive mood when your first meeting of the day is in Clovelly. Chloe and I met Emma, who has graciously offered to help us with our graphic design work. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with, and then share it with you, of course! Thanks Emma xo

Then next on to our meeting with Sindy Dube (who I’ve before before). Sindy is part of the Africa Konnect group, and has agreed to be our very own stylist for The Social Outfit’s first Sydney runway show. *Woot, woot!* I love this photo Sindy let me take; she was totally rockin’ that horse shirt!

Finally I met with some of my Board members to help me with our finalisation of The Social Outfit ‘Case for Support’ and financial modelling (not that it ever really ends, though… you just keep trying to get clearer with explanation, each time).

So like I said, a busy day, and one filled with equal measure hard work and hope! xo

Tell: Earrings from op shop, handmade necklaces, The Social Studio silk dress, vintage cape from op shop (which I totally need to wear again, because this photo doesn’t do it enough justice… so you can look here), Saba belt, Black Milk leggings, Camper sandals.
