The fRESH fashion show was quite a success. Everything went smoothly and everyone had a lot of fun, especially me! As a student I felt so honored to be included among some very talented and sophisticated fashion designers; Fariba Mirzaie from Gabbeh, Rosalind Aylmer from By Hand and Lina Cuthan from Lina Cutham Designs. I am so greatfull to Fariba for all her hard work in organizing this event as well as for all who volunteered that day including the beautiful models.
