So we just had our big fashion show this past Saturday.
I wasn’t graduating, that’s next year, but I finally showed some of my designs in the show. In the Freshman section, which I personally think should be renamed to the Non-Senior section. I haven’t been a Freshman in college for years now.
I just felt like if I’m gonna bust my ass washing cars fundraising for the show I might as well show something of mine. Especially, when people who didn’t fundraise AT ALL or contribute anything to the program are allowed to show. LIKE WTF. Anyways, I’m bitter but that ain’t news.
I had a hard time finding models and trying to get accessories, shoes, and people to do hair and makeup. Thank goodness, it all worked out in the end. All thanks to my besty Ash and cousin Mary Ann who lent me shoes and accessories, my BEAUTIFUL models Neka and Pua, who are just amazing on and off the runway, my good friend Hannah who applied the flawless makeup on Neka, someone from the Jacobe Salon who did the hair on both Neka and Pua. My friend Olo, who’s just amazing, did his best to find models for my dresses. I can’t thank them enough.
Neka introduced me to a photographer named Sara Anslow right before this impromptu photoshoot.
The result is just gorgeous.
It was a long day but I was so happy in the end.
I congratulate my peers who are graduating this year. They all worked so hard. Ramie and Carmen, my home gurls, who I’ll miss like a muther after they leave school for bigger and better things.
Now I can’t wait for next year:)
I just got this on facebook.
Thanks to Rob DiAntonio for this photo.
It’s another first, since all the other runway shots I ever took sucked.
