On the 28th of September 2019, I had the exciting opportunity to photograph the first edition of the Doncaster Fashion Week. This was held at the National College for High Speed Rail.
Leah Mcmullen, the organiser of the event, provided me with an Industry pass, enabling me to photograph the event backstage. This was a great opportunity to develop industry work-based skills and experience.
I was able to photograph the event whilst they were setting up and speak to local and international creatives. I was amazed by how quick the space transformed from a functioning workshop to an incredible fashion show set.
The whole experience has been extremely rewarding. It has allowed me to develop invaluable networks and contacts in the creative industry.
