Upon arrival at G..H.Q. club last wednesday, it became immediately obvious that my garments were in very safe hands.
I was able to kick back and relax during the first half of the show, with my gang, who had all arrived on time , and almost sober.(!)
gorgeous little patchwork embellished tops and dresses from "Tea at Aunties " came out first, followed by a plethora of vintage dresses by "Godiva" more designers followed, all beautifully modelled.
At the interval, Gabriella and I galloped backstage to start getting my set ready. as we were showing last of the night.
All of my garments need lacing up in one way or another, so it can get a bit hairy dressing 6 girls in 4 minutes, but, thanks to the competence and helpfulness of all involved, the girls were ready, and sent out to the call of "get those prom dresses lined up NOW" from the young lady standing at the stage door with the running order.(you dont mess with the stage manager)
"wow" gasped a woman standing near to me, and at that moment I remembered why I love my job.
