Jewell barely had enough energy to make it to the tents on Friday, but she was there before going home and promptly passing out for the weekend.

Friday:


Breakfast potluck, one makeup seminar, the Neese show, and then another makeup seminar. It was a long day. She still made sure to donate a few of her outdated designer duds to the clothing drive before taking off for the evening, ready to celebrate St Paddy's with friends. It meant missing the Year in RhyDin Fashion presentation but it also meant green beer.

Normally, Cass was too self-conscious to be seen at something like Fashion Week, but she also couldn't pass up the opportunity to feed the masses. Especially on a holiday like St. Patrick's Day. She would at least attend the potluck breakfast, bringing brie and prosciutto breakfast tarts to be shared amongst the attendees.

Thursday, March 16th

Puzzle Party (with a cooler full of mimosas), then off to the Millie & Mallie show, where Kate would brag that she got beaten up by the fashion designer.







Friday, March 17th

Kate barely showed up in time for the War Paint to Wooing expo but it was well worth the effort. Neese in the main tent at 2, then back to Blush Brush warehouse for more makeup talk. This might have been her favorite day of the week.







Saturday, March 18th

Party party party, party all the time!!!!!!

Lucy was a little reluctant to attend something called a Puzzle Party, but in the end it was booze at noon so she wasn't going to complain about that. Hanging with Kate was a good way to kill time before Millie and Mallie anyhow.



Friday was a day back at the tents, but she did go check out the From War Paint to Wooing event looking for a little artistic inspiration.



Saturday was all about the Battle of the Bands, wearing her custom-cut Team Beat Down t-shirt (that is starting to feel a little vintage) and a borrowed ring from Kate's collection.

Wednesday
Rise and Shine: Breakfast and Beauty Tips




Taking part in the Rise and Shine beauty tips breakfast panel for the second year in a row, Grace was on hand to provide some ridiculously easy hair "hacks" for chic hair styling made simple. She hung out for awhile after the panel to answer any questions and provide a couple of quick demonstrations.

Afterwards, she stopped by the Bridging the Budget Gap put on by Shane Michaels of Keeping you in Stitches. She remembered his shop from the Wedding Expo they'd done together last spring, and she was always interested in learning new techniques to spruce up what was largely a thrift store wardrobe.

Saturday
Battle of the Bands




After a very long but highly productive week, Grace managed to drag a certain Gypsy King away from the Caravan for the Final Night of Fashion Week, but only because she promised him booze and music.

Saturday:


Considering Fashion Week's Battle of the Bands is where Trash got their first major break, Addie definitely had to show up for this one. She even stuck around for the wrap party afterwards.

Tuesday, March 14th
Highlife Haberdashery Runway Show

The turmoil that had roiled the city in recent months seemed to have inspired the outfits that Locke rolled out for his part of the annual Highlife Haberdashery Runway Show, and in the general presentation for the show. Aggressive, drum-heavy techno played for his portion of the show, and the models marched out fast and in step to the music as best they could. It hit fast and hard, and when Locke's part of the show concluded, he did not come out on the stage for the traditional valedictory walk and wave. It made some of the more traditional fashionistas uncomfortable, which was exactly what he had been going for. This was as close to a statement as the now much more private fashion designer would make on the rise in anti-human sentiments, the attack on his L.D. 50 store, and its subsequent shuttering.

After making her runway debut Saturday night, Val went home to rest, and prepare for the memorial the next day. Given their involvement in the community at large, and their connection to the evening in question, there was no way she, or Rand, would miss it.

Monday saw her out and about, hitting as many of the shows as possible, and catching up with a few familiar faces where they met up. No stranger to fashion in her own world, she made a note of pieces that caught her eye, to follow up with the designers later.

Tuesday was another day, happily socializing and even findng a few pieces she thought would look fantastic on Rand at the Highlife Haberdashery show.

Wednesday found her in a fabulous pair of shoes for the Remington and Fox Footing shows (not that it was all she wore by a long shot).

Thursday, she'd made arrangements to meet up with Jewell - there was no way either of them was going to miss the Millie & Mallie show. Starting to tire from the whirlwind of events, she went for subtle elegance, but there was no way she was going to miss an opportunity to spend some time with the Empress.

Friday, Val spent at home, recuperating from the nonstop swirl of color and fabric, and beautiful people in beautiful clothes. But Saturday found her once more dressed to the nines for the Wrap-up party - Fashion Week had been an absolute joy, and she was already looking forward to next year.

It was tricky, running back and forth between her appearances for Fashion Week and call times for Kismet, so the fact that Saila didn't really sleep, might in fact never sleep again if she could help it, that was a very good thing. Armed with a thermos of coffee and at least one bottle of bourbon, the girl stayed on the move virtually all week.

Sunday
Interfaith Memorial Service



Saila had never been to a Memorial Service before, but given everything that had happened, this wasn't one she intended to miss.

Monday
Bright Braiding 101



Volunteering for the second year in a row as a braiding model for Grace, the mercurial teen was more than happy to spend a couple of hours having her traffic-stopping hair played with, woven into successively more intricate braids.

Tuesday
Muziak & Co.



The purple haired girl showed up early to get a good seat to see her cast mate Yasmin strut her stuff on the runway. Seemed she wasn't the only Shanachie Theater cast member pulling double duty this week!

Wednesday
Rise and Shine Breakfast and Beauty



While a lot of people were less than thrilled about the early reveille for this event, Saila's favorite time of day was dawn. She showed up with a full thermos of coffee (and even shared some with Grace) for the panel on beauty tips and even volunteered yet again to let Grace demonstrate some of her hair styling hacks on the violently violet mane.

Afterwards, she had a few more minutes before she had to book it to call, so she stopped by to see Shane Michaels at the Keeping You in Stitches booth for Bridging the Budget Gap. Although she couldn't stay for the whole thing, what she did see was educational and interesting, and she walked away with a few ideas to try to put some variety in her mostly monochromatic wardrobe.

Thursday
Puzzle Party and the Millie and Mallie Runway Show



Saila hadn't the first clue what a Puzzle Party might entail, which seemed like as good a reason as any to go find out. It turned out to be an entertaining endeavor, and she may have teamed up with Lucy for some day drinking and puzzle solving, but we can neither confirm nor deny that statement.

Then it was off to the Millie and Mallie Runway show. She'd missed it last year and didn't want to make that mistake again.

Saila was not among the crowds on Friday or Saturday, though, as she geared up for the final two performances of Kismet and ...maybe spent five seconds with her boyfriend, too.

While she so enjoyed modeling in Fashion Week last year, Josie was delighted to take a seat in the audience this time around and get a whole new perspective. Elbow to elbow with her fellow Fashionistas, she admired with an all too dreamy expression, the season's latest and most gorgeous creations and the men and women who helped them come alive!
