Fashion Consciousness


There is only seconds to go until catwalk time, but corsets need laced, shoes are being buckled and a safety pin is being strategically placed on the front of a dress to ensure all eyes are on the clothes and not exposed body parts. 

It's chaos backstage, but as the curtain opens and the lights kick-in, one by one each model struts gazelle like down the catwalk. They hit their mark at the end of the runway, give it some attitude then turn to make the final walk before exiting.
