CSM: Backstage 2013

And just when I thought I knew all about the backstage scene, working a graduate show was on another level. It's not so much about the chaos as that's a given with any show, but the competition and tension on top of it all. Plus maneuvering within a confined space requires one to rely on their reflexes and dodge, duck, jump, and slide, or the whole "stop, drop and roll" fire drill would also be accepted. Everything started smoothly, but as it picked up momentum, things got intense and before I knew it, the models I was responsible for was prepping to walk out, I barely had time to lint roll her dress let alone take a picture. But with all the stress aside, the best part of being backstage was to see the clothes up front and in detail, it was texture heaven! You can easily get a hand-gasm from swiping along the provocative surfaces... As the madness subsided, everyone's body started giving out, the adrenaline and caffeine that kept us going for hours were wearing off, which only meant that after-show drinks were in order. Congrats to all the BA graduates, now go party your ass off (no man left sober).
