Alas, the utter chaos of backstage. From snapping photos, to last minute alterations, everyone here was having a fun time.
After each model had hair and makeup done by a local salon, designers were sure to approve it and make the necessary adjustments.
Some of the many garment racks that line the back stage walls. One can clearly see that in order for the models to change quickly, neatness was not a priority.
Once the show began, all was silent until samba remixes blasted through the speakers.
Models and fellow class mates, Jeanette Miller and Rachel Sapio rocked the runway. I hope to see them on more runways to come!
Here, all the models walk through arm in arm with their designer.
In the end, the show proved to be a great success. It accomplished its goal of informing the community of WVU’s department of fashion, and new designers had the opportunity to showcase their work, as well as network with many of the city’s elite. I’m already looking forward to next year’s production!
