Fashion Able fashion show, the backstage story May 12 2017, 2 Comments
So today was the day of the Fashion Able fashion show at Waverly Station, a fair trade , body positive event celebrating diversity in fashion and clothing. I was very happy to take part.
When I first arrived , models were getting their hair and make up done and the finishing touches were being added to the catwalk , and seating. I spied Ms Gail Porter peeping around the corner of the changing tents and just went over to introduce myself. Gail turned out to be a lovely lady and we had a nice chat . she popped backstage to see my
outfits. I asked her for a selfie , and she obliged .
I set up my rail with the outfits I had selected and the girls started coming up for their fittings. the press photographer Wullie Marr arrived , and I had arranged with him to have some girls ready for a little shoot . so the first 4 girls to be ready went off with him to get their pictures taken
Here are Toyra , Daniella and Ira.
Time passed very quickly and it got really busy backstage. My set was on first as they are a bit more complex to put on and take a little time, so I had just about enough time to get them all ready , then we all went and waited in the tunnel for the show to begin. This is allways one of my gavourite times in an event , everyone is excited and a little nervous , but all looking fab and ready to go !
Heather and her adorable daughter Ella, who was a little shy to start with but was delighted with her Baby Moda dress , which I let her keep.
