When I first started Red Carpet Fashion Awards back in February of 2007, it was just a hobby.
Little did I know that 8 years later it would enable me to have so many life-changing experiences and bring so many amazing people in my life.
I took awhile to think about it, and without getting into too much detail, I have decided that this will be my last post on the site.
I want to personally thank the millions of readers who helped grow Red Carpet Fashion Awards. Without your support none of this would have been possible.
I would like to say how much I appreciate all the positive comments and emails of encouragement. During moments of exhaustion or sadness they always gave me a huge lift.
I know many of you will be upset about the site closing, but I hope you will appreciate the hard work I have put into this site (for the most part) on my own and without investment – which hasn’t been easy.
When people assumed that this site was run by a team of people, I saw it as a compliment, but after time I realised that it was perhaps an indication that I was doing way too much.
I would like to thank Lucy Dachtler, Net-A-Porter.com, Film Fashion, Sasha Charnin Morrison and Becki Newton who in the very early days made me realise how special this site was.
I would also like to thank all the contributors to this site. Their hard work and efficiency will be appreciated by anyone who has ever read this blog. But I will reserve my up-most thanks and sincere gratitude to Rachel Watkins who was always there when I was still on my computer at 9pm (or even 1am) to take over when I was exhausted after a 12 + hour day.
I have to give a huge shout out to Jason Rembert who is a true gentleman and never held my criticisms of Rita Ora’s looks against me and Prada/Miu Miu who never blacklisted me from their events despite my less than favourable reviews of their red carpet gowns.
Thanks again for your support of Red Carpet Fashion Awards. It has truly been an amazing ride.
The site will go offline on January 14, 2016.
