Everyone ready to see the event pix? Better late than never right? LOL. The Emerging Trends 2011 was held at the Boston Center for the Arts (Cyclorama) on Tremont Street in Boston. The schedule was 3pm set-up, back at booth by 7pm, doors open at 8pm, first segment of fashion show at 9pm (there were 3 segments with a break in between each) and event scheduled to end at midnight.
We arrived just before 3pm to check in and get all my stuff into the building. Everyone was super nice... they even rounded up a group of ladies who helped carry things into the venue from my truck!! The staff really did a wonderful job... they were very friendly and attentive and kept coming by to see if we were all set, bringing water, etc.
The runway set-up was amazing... a full 80 foot runway!
There were 16 vendors... 8 on each side of the venue's huge, round room directly behind the seats with a bar in the middle of each side...
Here's my booth all set up...
And the man instrumental in helping me pull all these things off... my Dad ♥
(who probably never in his life thought he'd find himself at a fashion show!!)
Another hard-working member of the Designs by Debi team... my Mom ♥
There were designers there from all over the world (Canada, Iceland, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Portugal, Germany) and I was honored to be included among them!!
Halldora is a footwear and clothing designer from Iceland who debuted her first official line of footwear for Winter 2011-2012 at the event! Her booth was on the side of mine. She's very talented and a wonderful, friendly person.
The view from my booth...
Reaz Hoque, CEO of The SYNERGY Events, who put on this event welcomes the crowd...
These are some photos from Halldora's segment of the fashion show. She made all the clothing and footwear...
More parts of the fashion show from other designers (sorry I can't remember who's who)...
Part of the end when Reaz was thanking the staff and having them take their walk on the runway...
It was a wonderful event to participate in and was very organized and well-run. I'm extremely grateful that I was given the opportunity to showcase my designs alongside all of these other talented designers from around the world.
I hope that you've enjoyed following my journey. If you'd like, you can see all these photos (and a few more) larger in the album I made on my facebook page by following this link... The Emerging Trends 2011 ~ Boston Fashion Week. Thank you SO much for your support and coming along with me on this adventure :)
Fabulous photos! How exciting for you and Im so glad you were able to be picked to attend/participate and also enjoy this cool event! Looks like you had a good time and a front row seat! :D
That is so exciting! Have you been able to breath since it was over? ;) Great job to your team! What in the world would we do without our moms and dads?
Back again! Just noticed I missed your Tuesday post, don't think I got on Blogger at all yesterday. I love the box your dad made that you painted! It is awesome and will always be a treasure! I can see where practicing the set-up process is so helpful. You have everything down to a science! So sorry you, too, have back problems. It certainly will put a damper on life some days! It has just about confined me to the house since May. I'm ready for some relief!!
Well, I've been having lots of problems commenting on blogs... even my own!! The nerve of google!! LOL Thank you both Nikki and Lisa for following my journey and your wonderful comments and compliments :) It took a while for me to breathe when it was over...I was exhausted!! But it was fun... a very good experience. And I did have a "front row seat"...my booth was right next to the DJ :) Lisa I hope you're feeling better now.
