Things are starting to heat up. Tickets to the show are selling. The sponsors have been announced. Event plans are well underway.
When last I visited the designers, I saw lots of garments that appeared to be in the final stages of production. Most of the students seemed to be working on those last details and finishing touches that take a look from nice to WOW.
This is good.
In a few short weeks the students face the jury. The jury members have the option of excluding a designer from the show if they feel the work is not going to be where it needs to be for the runway. So, the designers know they need to deliver. More importantly this group of professionals will be providing strong, constructive critiques.
Not long after the jurying is the photo shoot. This is an intensive daylong affair. We tap local professional talent (the fabulous Mr. Scott Cunningham) to shoot the models in their garments for the catalog.
I’ll be taking photos of people taking photos to share here. I can’t wait for this. I can’t wait to see the make-up and hair designs in 3D—side note: many of the designers share models, which means that the make-up and hair folks have the added challenge of creating looks that will work with more than one design.
If you’re curious about the photo shoot, check out the coverage of last year’s shoot.
After the photo shoot I’ll start introducing individual designers and their Masters of Design muse.
Below are more images from the hair & makeup consult and the Dec. garment review.
