I can’t get enough of it, I was going through photos last night after yet another fantastic day and I thought to my self I’m tired and my feet are swollen but what the heck am I gonna do with myself when this ends. That’s usually how I get when I’m really busy working on something I love. I love it so much I don’t want it to be over.
Well today’s the last day and I am getting ready to do it all over again but before I move onto today let me show yall what happened yesterday. I saw two shows yesterday, Lauren Bagliore for which I was blessed enough to be sitting front row for and Romona Keveza. I went down to Heritage court expecting to see the Evan Blidell show too only to discover that it was some sort of projected presentation instead of a real show. Can we say boo hoo, I was so disappointed; Evan is one of my favourite Canadian designers and one of the shows I was really looking forward to seeing. Though Evan was some what of a disappointment Romona Keveza was not! I was speechless after her show, shocked and stunned into silence, a hot stuttering mess when I was trying to describe what I felt about the show I just saw! Here’s the catch my photographers memory card died on him before the final walk. (BBM crying face), but we got some great shots of the first section so I am posting those for
As we continue…
While sitting at the Lauren Bagliore my girlfriend gets a text message from Backstage Life alumni, Judy inc stylist, Ryan Catney; who spotted us in the front row. It’s always great seeing Ryan who brought along another Judy inc stylist; and since she had the opportunity to work backstage on another of the collections coming down the runway; I put her on the spot and asked her the same questions I’ve had everybody answering this week. Meet Nadia Pizzimenti Judy inc stylist!
