A few days ago we met our talented friend Felicia Williams in Amsterdam! We had a lovely time and delicious dinner in one of our favorite restaurants in De Pijp! While enjoying the sea food (Love at first bite!), we were eager to hear more about her Fashion trip to London! Take a look at her photo diary and found out more about her work in London!
London… One of my favourite cities in the world! I love everything about it… The shops, the food, the vibe, the hustle and bustle. Who knows, that place I might one day call home. I love going to London, especially when I’m able to mix a couple of days off with a special occasion, for instance fashion week. I’ve had the pleasure of working there a couple of times already and last month it was that time again! I love my job as a makeup artist! Out of the 5 days I stayed there I only had 1 day of fashion week, so plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the city. Below you can see what I’ve been up to.
Sherlock Holmes @ Baker Street station. I bet James Bond wouldn’t have liked sliding off these escalator sides with the signs still there…
One of my favourite to do’s in London: shopping! I found some new gems during this trip, like Guru makeup emporium and London Designer Outlet. Definitely worth coming back to next time!
I’m a fan of Model’s Own nail polish and its store, as well as the mall the store is at: Westfield Shopping Center.
Of course there was some work to be done as well! Part of the makeup team, headed by Maria Papadopoulou, working on 2 shows, starting withVIN+OMI’s fashion show at the Drury Club.
Then it was on to the next location: ME hotel, for the PPQ show.
With the lovely models Lucy and Noortje (Noortje is from Elite Amsterdam)
Icing on the cake was being able to watch the show! And Noortje closed the show wearing a stunning dress.
Closeup of Noortje’s dress and enjoyed the scenery on my stroll back from a long but exciting day at fashion week!
Then finally some of my favourite places to eat
English breakfast at The Table, and Eggs Benedict at Riding House Cafe.
Jamie’s Italian never disappoints (except for the fact that the Eaton Mess is not always on the menu!)
Ramen at Shoryu and I just had to share these super cute easter eggs at Selfridge’s (which I didn’t buy cause they cost a fortune)
When you have enough time to kill at Gatwick Airport and you’re hungry, I do suggest going to Jamie’s Italian (I just couldn’t resist). The risotto was to die for! The best way to end another successful trip to London… Can’t wait for the next one!
