Alexander McQueen's Final Collection. Fall 2010

I'm still shocked and upset over the tragic death of McQueen, truely a genius. His final collection was shown and it completely blew me away. With hints of his previous collection in this show, he designed with an Autumn, angelic vibe. The models had angel wings - some say, as a dedication to his deceased mother and Isabella Blow. The colours used were very Christmasey and Regal, lots of gold and reds. It was amazing and I find it hard to think this was the last collection he had designed. R.I.P McQueen.




Prague 25th-28th March

Yesterday I got home from an amazing school trip to Prague. I'm in the school choir and we went to Prague to take part in the Young Prague Music Festival, where choirs and orchestras from all over the world come over to perform and compete. I went previously 3 years ago and was raging I didn't take much photos, so this time round I took over 200! 
Prague is definitely one of my favourite places, the architecture is out of this world and all the traditional values they have. The weather when we were over there was hilarious, one minute it was roasting and the next there was thunder and fork lightning! None of knew what to wear/expect haha!
Our choir performed on the Friday. We sang The Vicar of Dibley, Evening Breezes, Vois Sur Ton Chemin, Danny Boy, Laudamus Te and The Heavenly Airplane. It went really well and we got awarded an Honorary Achievement Award!
We went on a tour around Prague and it was brilliant, we saw the Royal Palace and the famous Charles bridge... and a couple of really hot Spanish guys. Haha
Shopping was on the Saturday and I shopped like someone from Mission Impossible, I spent every last penny on clothes! I bought 2 military jackets, one from H&M and one from Zara. A linen khaki shirt from Zara and loads of clothes in New Yorker and souvenirs! We went to a market in the town square and it was incredible, there was a clock tower there and on the hour, every hour these little figurines would come out of 2 little windows, it was brilliant!
Overall it was a brilliant holiday, apart from being delayed 2 hours in Stansted airport and the rain... it was great! I would recommend anyone to visit Prague, especially if you're interested in art and culture.
I took hundreds of pics, but here are some of my faves...

I took this by mistake, and I adore it!




Our room was on the 11th floor and Ciara sat OUT of the window, smoking. If someone paid me I wouldn't. :L
