Welcome! You have entered the CCAD Fashion Show blog, your backstage pass to our runway event (think New York fashion week without the travel).
Leading up to the May 8. 2010 spectacular, we’ll take you behind the scenes for an insider’s look at how our spectacular fashion show event is pieced together.
Ever wonder what exactly goes into a fashion photo shoot? You may be surprised. Who decides which garments make it to the runway? How do designers get from sketch to finished piece? What’s the story behind “Origins”? How do models manage to walk in those heels without stumbling and becoming fashion road kill? We’ll cover that and more.
Who are we and why are we doing this?
Well to answer the first question: there will be three of us writing, me (Lacey Luce), Melissa Ricksecker, and Amanda Fondriest—think of us as the Destiny’s Child of writing. We’ll have a run of hits, then Melissa will go off on a solo career leaving Amanda and I to look fondly upon our fashion show blogging days.
We do this because it’s fun. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized last year that all the stuff leading up to the show is almost as cool as the show itself. So, this year we are inviting you to share in the fun.
If you (like us) are not an expert in fashion design, photography, event planning, hair styling, make up, etc.; and if, like us, you find the whole crazy process fascinating—then, follow us and you’ll get to peak behind the curtain and see who’s applying the double-stick dress tape.
Subscribe to this blog, follow us on Twitter, and become a fan of our Facebook page—then buckle in, it’s gonna be a helluva ride.
Oh, and don’t forget to post your comments; this blog thing is a two-way street you know.
