My sister Michelle and I
These were so comfortable to sit on! I want one for my room.
I got the pleasure of attending one night of Genesis fashion week on Thursday. I brought my little sister along as my plus one. It was her first fashion show. Can you believe it? 21 years old and never been to a fashion show. Unfathomable. To me anyways. I’ve had my designs shown in five different shows and produced another one and yet my sister has never been to one… Anyways, this was a terrific start to her fashion show experiences. We had a great time mingling, eating and drinking before the show began.
As we took our seats, we noticed this orange skinned girl with long cascading hair extensions and sun glasses sitting in the front row across the run way from us. It was hard not to stare at her. She was sexily posing on the edge of her chair and staring at someone across from her… I never saw anyone take a photo of her so who on earth knows what she was posing for. At one point she took a flower from the bouquet displays and nibbled on it while provocatively eyeing up the 3 gentlemen in front of us. It was easy to tell if she enjoyed the clothes coming down the runway or not. For some outfits she would stand up, hold her arms out as far as they went, and clap while saying things like “gorgeous”, “beautiful”, or simply just gasping. She looked less than pleased at other garments – even with the sunglasses that covered half her face.
But enough about that distraction. The collections were beautiful. I can’t say there’s one I didn’t like. My top three favourites were: Alison Davis (beautiful evening wear – loved the black and gold), Tanouk (edgy, rock & roll, absolutely adored the leopard print garments – but you could have guessed that), and Cleonie (really unique and gorgeous swimwear – not too sure about the speedo, but the one piece black with cut outs = to die for). Going to these two fashion shows this week has really made me miss designing. I think when I go back home I’ll try to get into it again. That is, if I can remember how to operate my machine. It’s just like riding a bike, right?
