Burberry Makers House

Last week I was scrolling through my Facebook and came across an event for 'Burberry Makers House' I looked into it, finding out it was showing the Burberry collection as well as presenting techniques of the processes to create the garments. It was also free and very close to the Fashion Retail Academy (Where I am currently studying). So on Monday me and a couple of friends went and along and really enjoyed seeing all of the Burberry heritage and craftsman ship.
I took a couple of images to share if any of you didn't get the chance to go along.

'Following the September 2016 runway event, our new London show venue has become the destination for some of Britain’s finest craft makers as they bring the inspiration behind the new collection to life in unexpected ways. This unique showcase of original works, and the processes involved in their creation, takes shape through a daily changing programme of activities and installations. '

A day in Garachico

Garachico is a little town on the north coast of Tenerife, it has to be one of may favourite places I have visited on the island with the beautiful un-touched nature and Spanish heritage everywhere. It made me felt like I was in the 'real' Tenerife where not everyone spoke English and nothing was modernised.

I wanted to visit the town after hearing about the rock pools, and wow they were amazing!! There isn't one beach in sight but the natural rock pools have been given ladders and a lifeguard and made into swimming areas. I just loved jumping into the sea, swimming around seeing the fish and standing on the rocks in the beautiful ocean.
We also went for a tapas type lunch while looking out at the beautiful views eating the most amazing fresh ingredients!

The streets in Garachico are small and cobbled with little houses made into shops selling the most unique treasures, next to family run restaurants and churches. The town had a really happy vibe, making you feel a million miles away from home and any stressful situations. Everyone was so lovely both residents and tourists and is somewhere I definitely hope to visit again someday soon.

Here are a few pictures I took capturing the best moments in the beautiful town.
