Some people may have already noticed, but on June 15 I walked down the runway of the HKU graduation show 2016: HERE WE SHOW.

Each year, fashion students from HKU present their graduation collection in a show. This year the show took place at Hoog Catharijne in Utrecht.

Despite the early call times and lots of waiting, I love walking shows! You get to meet a lot of new people and sometimes you get to see models you’ve met before, like I did that day. This was my third show and definitly my favorite one!

After the fittings and the first rehearsal it was time for hair & makeup. The designers chose to keep the makeup pretty natural, which I like.

After lunchtime (finally some healthy food on set!), we changed into our outfits and after that it was time for the final rehearsal. There were 2 shows and I walked for 2 different designers so I had to walk 8(!) times. That also means that I opened both shows, that was a really cool experience!
