GENESIS pt one : backstage

yesterday I spent my WHOLE day at Bapindo Plaza preparing Lasalle College's graduation show. I worked in the choreography team along with 5 other lovely pals. thank god I wore flats in the morning or I wont be able to walk at night. pretty much spent the whole day standing/walking. Those who think fashion shows are easy to manage ("the models just walk back and forth right?") it is NOTTTT. so many people are involved ! music, stage designers, lighting dude, makeup artist/hairstylist and all.. even dressers who just take on and off the models clothes play an important role ! I'll never forget this memory.. working backstage was epic and fun at the same time. there are times when you get frustrated, but when you see the final of the runway, smiles will emerge and those frustrating moments are well paid off. if you like fashion, and if you ever get the chance to work backstage, do try it! its tiring but fun :)
**heavy image post and this is part I only.. more pictures coming along the way on the part II of the post**

i cant ask for a better backstage team ! we worked our ass to the max.. shouting until our voices are gone, standing until our feet felt like falling apart, running to grab changing models, laughing until tears came out.. but in the end, we got through the 6themed fashion show smoothly ! here are some unforgettable moments captured..toting my dslr camera was totally worth the bulk and neck-pain...
