Day 2 of OFW was just as amazing as the first. Once we got used to the pace of things, it was much easier to run around on the second day to time what we wanted to do and when. This time I brought my camera with me while I was in the media pit and got a chance to snap a couple of photos from one of the amazing collections from the night. We also managed to snag some food this time as well, learning from the night before that missing dinner on a 7 hour night doesn't do well with your stomach.
For the first set of shows, I was placed in the media pit and snapped up some beautiful pictures of Bernice&Barclay's FW2014 Collection. I'm a huge an of floral so all of the body conscious dresses were beautiful! I'm waiting for some of the official collection pictures to become available so that I can compile a post with my favourite looks from each collection.
For the second set of shows, I was placed at our station and responsible for manning the Facebook page while the collections went down the runway. Although not as many posts were written on Facebook, those posts were more content heavy in terms of summarizing the overall designer's aesthetic with beautiful visuals as opposed to the fast-paced instant social media pages of Instagram and Twitter.
I did manage to sneak some time back stage in between shows to grab some photos of the models prepping for their next walk. Joseph Ribkoff's cool-kid-from-the-block aesthetic really attracted me with the funky black-out shades that all the models were sporting. Paired with Versace-like prints, the first part of his collection had a very street chic but sexy edge to it.
My last position of the night was backstage to capture the chaos that ensues from a fashion show. Not only did I get a chance to view some of the designs before they hit the runway, but I got a chance to see just how dedicated the designers were. Frank Sukhoo literally used every last minute up until the models stepped on the runway to fix any garment issues.
One of my favourite collections of the night was Serendipity. The models were dressed up as dolls down to rouge on lips and overly exaggerated painted eyes. The dressed flowed beautifully with chiffon and everything just seemed to be floating on a cloud of pink.
