The show's emcee was none other than the popularly known Taylor London Couture. Trust me, describing Taylor's accomplishment is a blog all itself, and I look forward to covering an event that will involve Miss Taylor London Couture so that I can elaborate on these accomplishments, but for now we are going to stick to the show. Fantastic hosting, gift bags and red carpet greeted the guest at the entrance, gorgeous birds on a wire hanging out in gigantic cages, and catered food with select wines, awaited the guest. The D.J. was spinning the hits, the crowd was ecstatic, and the it was show time. There were dancers strutting their peacock feathers and belly dancers winding, twisting and snaking their way across the entertainment portion of the show. Followed or proceeded by raffles of fabulously expensive giveaways. If you don't have one of those chic iPads yet because of your budget, this was the night to spend a few bucks and win one. This show lived up to the hype and excitement of what fashion show networking is all about. No one left disappointed and their were bids and offers for the clothing right off the models back before they cleared the runway. Yes indeed. I called this night "the greatest show on earth".
What I wont' do is attempt to name each and every model in this show out of fear of leaving someone out or misspelling a name. What I will do is say that the models earned their keep and did a super great job of keeping the crowd aroused in excitement, and beautifully displaying the garments while entertaining the pool of photographers eagerly awaiting that signature pose that would give him/her bragging rights. And you know what. I think I got each of them. Kudos to each and every model that graced the catwalk that night. And for the record: "The baby bump in the photo is not real.
This is my favorite part. By now each of you know how much I love photography. I would give up my first born for a lens cap. Now that is true love LOL. It always feels good to be entrenched with familiar faces and newcomers attempting to step up their game in fashion photography. With all the hustle and bustle, photography etiquette is at its finest hour in the photographer's pit. That is not to say that nobody got in anyone's way; it's just to say that no fight broke out in the pit. And me, I'm still Bluestilling 101. Chopping it up with the old timers and the newcomers. Always willing to listen to a new idea and share a thought. Oh yeah, and snap photos for my clients.
