I have to give thanks for being able to spread my photographic wings a little bit further a field over the last month. I found myself in sunny Jamaica were a high class modeling agency called Saint International extended to me and invite for a series of fashion shows. Yes you in the 'don't know' section, Jamaica is a fashion capital on a tsunami scale. StyleWeek Jamaica 2013 took place over the last week of May 2013. It seemed like a show of strength from Saint International by calling in all of their top models from around the world to walk along side new and established models in Jamaica.

I was soon flying back to the UK where duty called and making new relationships with emerging fashionisters. Only to realize that Sheila had put out the news that the 3rd Edition of FashionMist was running again at the Hotel Russell in London. And of course it was no let-down and it could be called one of the fashion events of the year. Sheila herself flew back from Ghana to oversee the procedures with her team and was also able to grace the catwalk with her latest collection.

Well, as my schedule thickens, it was off to FreeRange for the last in a series of fashion shows in London Brick Lane for Higher Education & University Graduates. Then it was time for me to move onto the Graduate Fashion week at Earls Court. I have got to give a special shout out to our friend; Model Salisu Abdulai who hit the ramp for East London University's Designer Chris Chambers. Lauren Smith took the Gold Award for the best collection at Graduate Fashion Week or Grad Fashion Week for short.

Just as we at iDeLick Media thought it was time for a little R&R, the invitations came flocking in for London Collection: Men Spring and Summer wear for 2014. So off I trotted for the hookup and photography accreditation was in hand. What should have been four glorious days of men's high fashion was reduced to three as my clients at Bath SPA University reached over and requested my presences in their beautiful town of Bath.

The order of my day was to meet with the models at Paddington Station for 8.30am and catch the 8.54am train to Bath SPA. But no body told me I was meeting with a group of top international models... OK then! I really had no time to ponder the 'who was who' and in what high street poster they were featured.
