How amazing it was to see the dress I made on the stage while dancing to my favourite band’s music…
At the Dropkick Murphys gig at O2 Academy Brixton (27th January 2017), I got to see one of my other favourite bands: Skinny Lister, who were the opening act. I had already been excited for them and it exceeded my expectations. Skinny Lister’s singer, Lorna, was wearing the dress I made. It was such an honour. The dress looked absolutely gorgeous on her.
While I was in London during the summer to attend Alexander McQeen exhibition, I also went to see one of my favourite bands in Camden. It was a great gig, but I also took the opportunity to ask one of the singers for the band if they’d like me to make her a dress (for future gigs).
I was lucky to talk to her at the venue. At first I hesitated to bring it up, but I introduced myself and showed her my website. She was a very friendly and lovely person and we exchanged details.
