How To Gatecrash A Fashion Show

Those of you who read Friday’s little cake post will already know what this is about: A couple of days ago, I accompanied my friend Maria to an event that took place at a fancy local hotel. One of Maria’s clients, Josรฉ Luis Pinto from 05estudio (a local architecture and interior design company), was hosting a presentation for a bunch of millionaire Chinese investors.

The part I was looking forward to most eagerly (besides being tossed some tasty morsels of food and drowned in delicious Spanish wine), was a catwalk extravaganza courtesy of Presumidas, a fashion label created by two Spanish designers, Andrea Palau and Laura Richarte, both of them obsessed with the flouncy feminine flair of the 50’s.

Although I couldn’t wait for the strutting to start, I wondered whether the overseas business barons might think a parade of swishy skirts a tad superfluous… but, as it turned out, I needn’t have worried. Pictures speak louder than words, or however the saying goes…

(Note: I was poorly positioned against the light, so the quality of the images isn’t great. I altered some of them to detract from the graininess)


“Must get a shot of that for the wife…”


Some things are really hard to argue with…

OK… so my future as a fashion photographer may be forever doomed after this, but it sure was fantastic fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like the fuller silhouettes and big floral prints are my jam. But the shorts… man, I am sure the investors are read to stick their, um, funds right in there!

      I loved those shorts… not that I could wear them myself, but on those girls, they looked fabulous!

      Ooooh, fund(ament)s! And the sad pun award goes to me ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the inspiration!

    Sure, where else would you be looking?! Those shorts are fab. Not sure I’d get away with them anymore, but a girl can dream. I think I would have been too distracted to take any photos!

    Frippery and fine ahem… features… how could any designer go wrong or audience be anything but distracted… I mean delighted?!

    The shapely buttock shots clearly are a hit! With subjects like these, bound to score! Not that you haven’t snapped some fab photos. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hot pants (short shorts) are back in style? Wow! I remember them well.
    And that red dress, I think we all have a similar one in black. I like the flowered patterns, but I don’t think I look good in those full dresses.
