Back in May I took part in the Cambridge Union Society Golden Festival. I had a stall at the Hanami Exhibition during the day along side lots of other wonderful artists and designers, and I showed my Look Street Spring/Summer 2012 Collection in the fashion show at the evening event too. It was a fun day and a fantastic charity event which raised over £1,100 for Aid For Japan. It’s taken me a while, but here are some of my photos from the event!

Laura’s fabulous PinkAppleJam stall! It’s always fun doing craft shows together!
Yummy cakes for Aid for Japan. OK… as long as it’s for a good cause… ^_~
Lovely Lyuba & Hong from Strawberry Kimono dressed me in kimono! I got this gorgeous pink & black kimono at Brighton Japan Festival last summer, but I had no idea how to wear it and no obi belt until I met these ladies.
Their vintage kimono are gorgeous and really reasonably priced – if you’re lucky you might catch them at an anime con this summer!
After a quick noodle break it was time to start the Yozakura party fashion show! Here are some of my lovely models back stage. All the models were Cambridge University students.
The Lolita & Kimono part of the show. The outfits were *stunning*!
The Look Street section of the fashion show!
Everyone taking a bow at the end!
