Fashion shows always start off so calm and promising: models and designers start to trickle in one after the other several hours before the show, makeup and/or hair is getting done (this time by talented face czar Dmeechi) clothes are being fitted, there are quick practice runs and a nervous buzz of anticipation starts to build up the closer it gets to the show. Models dress for their first scenes, careful not to disturb their meticulously applied makeup, lineups and last minute changes are being hollered out as models put their game faces on. Then it's showtime...
Models hit the runway walking for the GAWDS and giving the audience everything they need! As soon as they hit the curtains to the backstage area they are literally ripping off clothes and accessories, T&A is everywhere as models frantically fumble around with one impossibly high heel on while trying to remove an earring and step out of or into a skirt or dress all while trying to avoid collision as everybody looks for their misplaced necklace, shirt, or shoe before lining back up just in time for the beat to drop for the next scene.
It's crazy but fun. Adrenaline and tensions are high, people get cursed out, models get mad, personal items become misplaced but it's all confined to backstage and hopefully never spills out into the runway for the audience to see. Which is what happens behind the scenes of any production whether it's put on by a church group or a small collection of strippers lol.
The show was great and showcased some of Cleveland's hottest designers and boutiques including Vaughn Glover, He Loves Curves, Stylez by Toy and Darla Foxx. A big thanks to Donnella and all the models for letting me participate!
