Happy 2nd anniversary, Fab UK Magazine

What a party this was! My first time in a room full of fashion enthusiasts and photographers and the Zoo was packed.

Back in June, this celebration started as I guess most would, with the Step and Repeat Wall photos that lead into the main area for drinks and a bit of networking and being papped.  Then our hostess, Sheena, welcomed everyone and went straight into the Miss Fab UK 2018 fashion show featuring clothing from Designer Venera Tabakin.

I just wanted to say massive thanks to Founder and Director of Fab UK Magazine, Cem and Starbelle Founder and Director, Isabelle for inviting me and my camera along – I got some great images that will be featured on the next issue!!! whoop whoop
