Models wearing outfits from our newest latex collection; five hundred folks sitting comfortably around a runway of hot cars and even hotter girls; the latest 3D rendered jewelry and other accessories married with the alt. haute couture; the perfect meet and greet outside after the show…believe me, what we experienced last weekend at the Couture & Cars Fashion Show at LeMay-America’s Car Museum, doesn’t just happen. There are so many talented people working behind-the-scenes for an event like this, that we must give them their due.
First to the producer Fashion District, NW. It takes so much time and attention to put a good show together, to picking the right venue (the LeMay has hosted the C&C now two years in a row) to getting just the right crew working on the specific day to make everything come off without a hitch.
Then there are photographers on hand (some whose work you see here, others we will showcase in our next blog) to capture the moments. Of course there are the designers giving of their talents and our beautiful, work-til-they-drop models, all making what happens out on the floor an immediate success.
Then there are the unsung heroes of a show like this, the hair and make-up artists. Often working in rushed, cramped conditions, the grace-under-pressure professionalism of MUA folk never ceases to amaze me.
This year Couture & Cars Fashion Show had the talented people of the Gene Juarez Salons making sure hair and makeup looked perfect. Any designer who is honored enough to show their wares across a runway, in a magazine, in video, knows how important these stylists are in creating the ‘looks’ that the audience sees and we designers take the applause over. Our deepest thank you to Gene Juarez Salons for all their tireless work.
