What a show Midnight Metropolis turned out to be! I arrived and found that the designer I was modeling for had no outfit for me, so a couple students took me on a shopping excursion, which lasted two hours and we wound up going to five big stores. We finally found a red dress with slits and a halter at Forever XII and then rushed back to the club so I could do hair and make-up. Since I was not going to walk in the show, the fashion crew decided to make me a greeter and sell canvas fashion dept. bags up front with Diane Greene, the head of the department. Later, I went on stage and did the raffle with the main host and supermodel/runway coach Charleston Pierce as a Vanna White character. I had fun walking up and down the runway beforehand and getting glamour shots! The show went well. There were about 52 models walking the catwalk as well as some Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet dancers performing for part of the show. I went through quite a fire storm that day, but when things fall apart, they are really just falling into place. The end result was truly magical!
I did an awesome runway casting at Academy of Art for one of the top shows in the city! They were looking for extras for the show. I didn’t get picked, but I felt like a real winner walking on the long Victoria’s Secret style runway with a big video screen capturing us as we walked back! I had a Giant’s stadium moment from when I had done a color guard performance during my senior year of high school. There were so many cameras on cranes zooming in to capture the models as we strutted down the catwalk. It was a magical moment I won’t ever forget! Bless Charleston Pierce for inviting me and a few other models to be a part of this special opportunity! We had some glazed donuts and Starbucks coffee to get fired up before practice. Big thanks to Joanna Hidalgo, the director, who gave expert instruction on the choreography! I hope to work with the AAU runway crew next year and be in the show!
