I am beyond excited to see the photographs from the runway this past May 22nd at Eastern Market. I am also really excited to share them. I'd love to hear your feedback. My photographer, Steven Wieckowski did an AMAZING job at capturing shots under difficult circumstances. The end of runways are so chaotic, so many photographers want their shot. When I first saw these what struck me most was that each shot had so much character. I really felt the person behind the image and the fashion clothes. And for me, who got to know my models a little bit during the course of the show, it means a lot. Each model had a different and interesting personality. One thing I love to advocate is showcasing your own individuality unapologetically. Maybe this is why I picked these models- they seemed super chill! Ha. Musta seen it in their faces.
I'll be posting more behind-the-scenes stories about sewing this collection, the interactions I had with the models, and the show itself. Also, stay tuned for an article I've been working on for a little bit- a cumulative one- all about how to ace your first runway show. Each experience teaches me invaluable information that no one told me before I got into this industry. I believe it's my duty to share it with people on their way in. Enjoy!
