After the 35th annual Fashion Show

Backstage after the show, faces were filled with joy and relief.

“I think it went really well,” model Madeleine Bretey said. “We practiced really hard and it was really hard to visualize what it was going to be like until we got to practice on stage and then we hit it really hard.”

“Set did a really great job on getting everything ready on the stage and it looked phenomenal,” Boerhave said. “Tech worked so hard to get all the music and lights worked out. It all came together so smoothly. I think this went above the crowd’s expectations that they had. Every year we put on such a phenomenal show, but this year we’ve had so many great new improvements and innovative ideas for this show.”

Devaughn Jones was one of the models who walked for the guest designer.

“It was crazy I could tell you that. I’m not saying I felt more comfortable doing their [Abasi Rosborough] line, but I felt more comfortable because it felt like the design related to me. I just got out there and I thought I did good job. The drums got people hyped, they got me hyped. I was out there just dancing.”
