Fashion Day at Short Pump!

Sunday, September 23, 2012
This was yesterday. I left the house at 10 to pick up my friends to go to Regency. There was a big sale at Forever 21! It was 50% off of already on sale items :))). There were so many things that were such good deals, but I limited myself because I didn't want to spend that much. After we were done shopping, we went to Short Pump because we had to be there at 2:30 to volunteer for the show. We were actually there like 2 hours early so we just walked around and talked. We met up with my sister and cousins and just chilled until it was time to go "backstage" to help out. My other friend, Megan, who isn't a Fashion major also volunteered with us because 3 people cancelled on them. She was chosen right on the spot since she was with us. :D
Fatin, Megan, and I. I really like this picture ^^.
 The picture is washed out, but look at the dude in the back that trolled us LOLOLOL.

 Some snapshots of Mindy's friend, Mindy, Jessica, and Diana.

 Us chilling a bit before we have to be in the "backstage" area.
 Passion Fruit Tea with Lemonade :D
 The dressers had to help get the garments from Sofia's car (who is the director of the show). We passed by these models who posed as mannequins. I really thought they were mannequins until I saw them change their pose. They did a really good job! 

Here are our lovely models:
All the dresses they wore were handmade and designed by VCU students :)
 The model I dressed was the one in the white kimono-looking dress all the way on the right ^^. 
 The Asian girl in the middle (Sofia) was the director of this show.
 Group picture! Models, dressers, coordinators.
 This is when the models practiced their walk before the show.

Us dressers didn't get to see the show because we were busying getting our models in and out of their outfits. It was a nice experience :). 

The only bad part was that the event wasn't really well organized because there were little kids and men there when our models were changing. We tried our best to make a little corner for our models to change in and cover them while they were changing. Other than that, it was fun!

After VCU's part was done, we could leave. We got our little goodie bags, too! It was handed out to the first 100 people. There was actually a lot more left even though we didn't get our bags until after we were done. I guess not much people knew about it so lucky us!

My bf called me saying that I can bring my friends over to his work place to get some free sushi so we went. We basically had free foods all day. Yay! College students always love free anything especially food. :)
Yesterday was such a fun day! I hope to do this again later if they have any events like this. I forgot to take pictures of what we had in the goodie bags, but most of them were coupons and gift cards to places at Short Pump ^^.
