In March I travelled to Bedford to work with Ronke Fashola on a catwalk show put together for the town’s business women’s network at BMW. Ronke had picked some great models, including Model of Diversity and all round Dangerous Lady – Jan Bryant.
About two weeks later I received and email regarding up-coming dates for events with Ronke and this put Janice and I in touch. She contacted me saying that she had a big shoot coming up and only wanted myself and Ronke for make-up, hair and styling. The shoot was possibly going to be featured as a spread in the Telegraph, and Channel 4, also making a short film about Jan, were filming the whole thing.
I travelled up to Cambridgeshire (a first for me – west country girl!) the night before and was bowled over by Janice’s warmth and hospitality. I met her lovely cats – Tigger, Squeaker and The Terminator, and we all spent the evening getting to know each other properly. After a good night’s sleep and breakfast of coffee and porridge we were ready to rock…
