Vivid Revival Fashion Show

I don't know if I've talked about this yet, but I was in a student fashion show recently. It was my first experience modeling and it was made so great by the Fashion Club of Seattle University. I'm already excited for next year's show...

Every year, the Fashion Club at my school puts on a student-run fashion show. All the models and any performers are students, and it features local brands and stores. It's an awesome blend of campus and community.
Because all the models are students, we spend a couple months practicing our walk. It seems kind of silly, but it's actually a lot of fun! It was also good to spend time with the other models and a lot of the people who were behind the scenes.

On the day of the show, I spent 6 hours at the location. I knew there was a lot of work that went into making the show happen, but I had no idea how long professional hair and makeup took! I loved the makeup look that the FCSU president chose: a totally spring-appropriate pink lip with an accentuated cat eye.

Walking the runway was actually not nearly as nerve wracking as I'd anticipated. I guess all those years of dancing prepared me for the spotlight.

I definitely wouldn't have been able to do the show without being coached by Natasha Wanigatunga. As a professional model and an executive member of Fashion Club, Natasha whipped all of us into runway-walking shape. Read more about her on CollegeFashionista.
