Staying Composed on the Runway; & Seattle Fashion Week 2010!
I was at Seattle Fashion Week at the WAMU Theater in Seattle yesterday, May 15th, 2010. Some of the designers included House of Versatile, Vera Wang, and Richard Blayne.
Many modeling events and fashion shows are all day productions. I arrived promptly at 8:45am and left the Seattle Fashion Week event at 10:30pm. It was an amazing opportunity for fashion models, fashion designers, MUA’s (makeup artists), hair stylists, and much more. There was press from all over, including Seattle Pi. There was amazing hair, makeup, dresses and crazy outfits. There were people, lots and lots of people.

If you are not confident, you show fear, insecurity, and/or nervousness. Those are really the only options. Nothing shines brighter than the confidence in your stride and the unwavering spark in your eyes. Except perhaps that shiny silver dress you have to wear on the fashion runway. Be careful, if the light hits it just right… you might blind your spectators.
You’re gorgeous, so let the whole world know it. If you’re walking the fashion runway, you must be “strutting your stuff” like you are the most gorgeous person in the world. If you don’t believe it yourself, your/the modeling agency’s clients won’t believe it either. Continue reading “Catwalk Confidence”
