The night before
Saturday, September 18th, 2010
After a day of fittings and last minute model casting, the team is tired but running on adrenalin.
In the sample room, the looks are being adjusted to fit each model precisely. Hems are delicately stitched by hand, buttons and fastenings are re-positioned and mere millimeters are shaved from side seams.
In the press office, final checks are being made on the press release and running order before printing begins - the phone is still ringing off the hook with photographers hoping to secure backstage passes.
In the showroom, Jasper is casting a careful eye over the photographed line up and next door it’s ‘all hands on deck’ to co-ordinate bags containing the girls shoes and accessories. Cheers erupt each time a finished look is delivered from the sample room.
It will be a very late night!
