BACKSTAGE- ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK

Finally, Arise Magazine Fashion Week is over. It’s a bitter-sweet feeling, because I do miss the friends and people I met while working backstage, but I am glad the stress is finally over. Do not be deceived by the pictures you see on the runway on Vogue.com and the likes, Major work goes into the whole production of a fashion show. 
Assisting the fashion stylist isn’t child’s play either.  There is lot of pressure on her and as a fashion assistant, you are supposed to make her life easier. Handing out pins and jotting down alterations during fittings, running up and down during the main Fashion show,whisking the models off for hair/makeup and bringing them back to wear the pieces before they strut the runway. Then we run to the next tent to start the same routine all over again for a different designer. 
It was fun being in the same tent with really cool designers, dressing up fabulous models like Flaviana matata, Ajuma, Dab, Agbani Darego, Aminat of ANTM and the likes.
With the hardwork, I barely watched the shows, but I got backstage pictures of some of the beautiful pieces of the designers.
HERE ARE THE PICTURES;-
