Me, Stacy (BMG designer), and Liz from Late Afternoon
Well, I survived my first runway walk! I have to say, I almost threw up in my mouth and lost sensation in my legs seconds before I went out there, but I managed to pull it somewhat together. What a strange feeling it was to walk out onto a raised runway in front of tons of people... I can do a million live tv segments more comfortably than I can walk a runway, which is weird but true.
Thankfully the show was really fun and light-hearted and I had Liz (Late Afternoon) there to shake my nerves out with! The Neon Trees performed and there were a few celebs walking in the show (Dania Ramirez from Entourage and Jenn Proske from Vampires Suck).
I've watched runway shows and have been backstage, but walking in one gave me such a different perspective on the whole process. Between the fittings, the make up, the hair, and all of the energy surrounding it, I really felt like I was a part of Fashion Week.
Thanks to Stacy and her team for putting together such a forward thinking show..With so much talk about how brands can interact and collaborate with "bloggers", it is great to see a designer jump in and embrace all of the changes with fresh and exciting ideas!
