On the catwalk

Last week I ‘walked’ at London Fashion Week in the Fashion Industry’s first official event for the older woman, 50PlusFW put on by J D Williams in the beautiful Cafe Royal, London.  It was so good to ‘strut my stuff’ and feel so alive on the catwalk and well as witnessing things changing little by little for the better for us all.

This year’s Daphne Selfe Academy, my online modelling course is now underway with students from around the World as far as Australia.  I’m sure we are going to have a great 6 weeks together.

With speaking engagements to discuss my book at Bath Literary Festival and the V&A, the world’s leading museum in art and design coming up, who said life has to slow down?  If you are doing what you love it never feels like work, it’s a great pleasure and privilege and so energising too!

All those times in my 60s as my husband Jim’s health declined and I had no idea of what was to be ahead.  I like to think he’d be proud of me if he’s looking down on me today.

I know that it is not always possible to do exactly what you want but do try and make time for something you really love each day even if it’s a snatched 15 minutes.  Being truly yourself and giving yourself expression combined with embracing every small opportunity that comes along could well lead onto something wonderful and enriching for yourself and others.  Dreams in the making!
