Baltimore Fashion Week

Grant will have to fill out his tag later. As for me... I've got a lot to catch up on. This last week I had the opportunity to be a designer's assistant at Baltimore Fashion Week. It was located in downtown Baltimore in the War Memorial Building. This picture is an hour before the show... as you can still see empty seats. Through out the show, I was wishing I could have just sat up here and watched. :)

I had a blast. I worked with productions and backstage crew. High stress for sure... my record for dressing a model in a pair of heels, a dress and some earrings was less than one minute. But I like working under pressure. Basically a fashion show, is an opportunity for (in this case... local) designers to show off their collection; an opportunity for them to show the public and potential buyers their skills. And because of that you run into people who are VERY talented (and I just have to wonder.... where the heck have you been?)(I would love to buy your stuff!) and the not so talented (that also goes for the models). So at the beginning of the event I wasn't too excited to be a part of it only because I just wanted to be impressed with amazing talent. Hopefully that makes sense. But as the show went on.. I was loving everything! The last half of the show was CRazy to say the least. I had a lot of fun because I was so in love with the clothes that I was putting on the models. Here are some pics. They love having their picture taken.

 Some of my favorite pieces.

And I'm still trying to get the videos to work...
