MY LIFE : WALKING DOWN THE RUNWAY

17/08/2014

backstagevektor2A month ago I went to Berlin, alone with a really large suitcase. I only new that I had a few castings and 8 days at a hotel.
The first 3 days of castings was ups and downs, most of the places I went I was declined immediately because of my (lack of) height.
But I had two castings that went rather well, they seemed to like my look and wanted to try on clothing right away.
They took the poloraid and I was left with the feeling this might actually be right.
And a few days later I got the messages, I was booked for two shows during Berlin fashion week.
One of them was even on the official Mercedes Benz Fashion Week runway for the brand Vektor.backstagevektor

I showed up exactly on time, but the tent was already packed with make-up artist, hair stylist, dressers, backstage photographers and the designers. One of them came to me immediately, hugged and welcomed me.
I tried to hide my nerves and smile, I felt like shaking.
I got my make-up and hair done, it was rather difficult to keep up with their german so we kept it mostly in english.
After we all had our looks done we went for a walking rehearsal. And of cause my shoes where two sizes to big, and a struggle to walk in. The designers didn’t seem to notice any weirdness in my walking, they actually complimented it(!).

The show started and I wore the coolest see through outfit with white sports underwear underneath.
I managed to walk the entire runway with my heart pumping like hell, shoes way to big and in a room as hot as a sauna.
Right there, the music was pumping and I had a blast.

The final photos from the runway. It’s so weird to look at them, I almost can’t regonize myself.
And what’s up with my stare? I will work on that for my next show!

I had to run through the pouring rain to catch the next show.
I’ll tell you all about that soon!
