When I was little, I always dreamt of being a fashion designer (along with a teacher, a singer, an actress, a make-up artist, a baker etc!) and I have always loved clothes. It finally clicked to me that it is possible to make your own clothes last year, so I bought some material and got stuck into it. I had always said that I would like a mannequin since I can remember, but I talk so much that I didn’t think my parents actually listened to me, just agreed. But it turns out that they do actually listen, so roll on 3rd February 2012 and I was given a mannequin as a birthday gift off my parents. At first my friends and I just dressed it up for fun, and then I realized that mannequins really are multi-use! I have discovered that, along with using them to help when making clothes, that you can use them for holding earrings. We all know that earrings can be difficult to keep track of if you don’t have a jewellery box, and they can ruin (especially feather earrings,) so I keep a lot of my earrings on my mannequin.
