Encouraged further by two very sweet interns who gushed at my outfit, I was determined to make myself noticed at my very first AFI Fashion Week. At about 16h30 I was snapped by the event's street style photographer and I was continuously completed on my shoe choice and graphic print sheer blouse.
Eventually the time was nigh and the amazing Kesh planted a photographer's pass in my hands and I was in. Guided by the fashion photographer Waldo Pretorius, I was led to the magical world of backstage of the runway. I felt like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory ,although possibly a little bit more familiar than Charlie was with that factory, but still it was holy-shit-balls exciting to be there.
I met the marvellous head of make up Michelle, a crazy beautiful woman who works in platform high shoes with a cheery smile on her face despite any surrounding chaos.
I got to meet models, designers, make up artists, fellow photographers and bloggers and had an all round blast. Being in the film industry, I have to compare the backstage and the front row to being on set. Whilst it is work, it's crazy fun work.
But let's chat about the clothes now...
Khosi Nkosi's designer made a runway appearance longer than any other designer at Fashion Week, taking a long stroll and pose to the end of the runway.
