Thousands of people, one long street, vendors and stall holders, retailers, a mobile catwalk, racks of clothes, and 38 Degree weather. The 2013 Beaufort Street festival was a big long day.
I somehow had to MC the Wearable Art Runway- not something I did that well- picture me, a clipboard with 10 pages to read, a mic with about 20 meters of cord to hold while speaking and turning said pages. The girls from Pierrot's kindly did my hair- but there wasn't enough time for makeup, so I kept my sunglasses on and borrowed a top off the rack to be worn later so that I looked at least a little less like a walk in off the street. Anyone who had to witness my unpracticed 'live reading' probably spent that ten minutes cringing, and possibly trying to decipher what I was actually saying- anything I didn't know how to pronounce I just mumbled (meh). But hey, life is about putting yourself out there, right?
I took a lot of photos from the pop-up fashion shows, this is from catwalk #1 featuring clothes from Department and Steph Audino.
More to come including some backstage images.
