As mentioned in an earlier post, I was lucky enough to be invited to the book launch for Amelia's Compendium of Fashion Illustration. As it was my first event I have been invited to in my role as a blogger, I felt a mixture of anxiety and excitement all the way on my journey from New Brighton to London. (If you go on Google maps and search for New Brighton, Wallasey you will see how far I travelled!
I was lucky enough to have been invited for Afternoon Tea and also to the event held in the evening. Both were held at the fabulous 123 Bethnal Green Road, an amazing fashion Eco store, and also home to the Bunker Cafe (where the afternoon tea was held. 123 was the perfect environment for the event and it was lovely to be around so many wonderful and creative people. There was a great mix of bloggers, illustrators, writers, photographers, artists and musicians.
Although it was not an exclusively female event, I did find it really inspiring to find myself in the company of so many creative women, all brilliant at what they do and passionate about their work.
