It’s Saturday afternoon here in Bangkok and Tawn’s first fashion show, in which he’s participating after only two semesters of studying fashion design – begins in less than three hours. I’ve spent a good portion of the day at Paragon mall, helping him get everything loaded in and documenting the process in the hopes that years from now where he’s a famous designer and they need to do a retrospective of his work, I’ll have some pictures they can use.
Just returned home to freshen up a bit before heading back to take pictures and video of the show. Here are some sneak peak behind the scenes photos:
Tawn organizes outfits as models (mostly Russian) chat.
Lots of “hurry up and wait” during the rehearsals.
After final dress rehearsal there is chaos backstage as designers make adjustments. Here, Tawn, assisted by another student, adds padding to the model’s shoes so they fit better.
Pictures and video in the next day or so. Stay tuned!
