Miss Fortune on the Catwalk at Americana International Festival!

Blimey! How time has flown since Americana International Festival in July!  We’ve been super busy moving offices and preparing for Autumn/Winter.  I’ve finally managed to grab 5 minutes to blog some of the photos and the video from the show!

The Rockin’ Fashion show, organised by BooBoo Kitty Couture, took place at the Americana International Festival, a great outdoor American vehicle & music show in Leicestershire, UK.

We got to visit the show on the 2nd day of the weekend and although the weather may have been a little inclement as we arrived, inside the big blue top collections from 12 great brands and 18 beautiful pinups were ready to brightened up the day!  As the afternoon wore on the sun even put in an appearance!
