Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival 2015 Revisit…

It is Monday October 17 which means this Friday is the model fittings for the 9th annual Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival on Saturday! I thought it would be the perfect time to look back on the 8th anniversary last year and my amazing experience as a back of house dresser.

I was assigned three beautiful models for the day; Rochelle, Clare and Jamie. I went to all of their fittings with them throughout the day and dressed them between shows throughout the evening. I was responsible for collecting all of there outfits and accessories when fittings had ended and placing them on the assigned racks, in order of each show, for quick and efficient changes throughout the fast paced event.

Getting to see everything that goes on behind the scenes made my appreciation and admiration for the fashion industry grow even more. The makeup and hair changes were done so quickly though still remained so elegant and refined among the chaos that is a fashion show. The designers were so passionate, talented and down to earth with breath-taking collections. The entire environment was an inspiration and I felt incredibly privileged to be a part of it.

I had an absolute blast and am so excited to see what this year brings!
