My tips: Creating a run of show

October 5, 2012
Happy Monday lovely blog readers! I can't believe we're already in October. September just flew by! I've been sharing with you guys a lot of the Behind the Seams™ of NYFW and today I want to share some of my tips for making a rocking run of show. I spent hours and hours this year on our run of show to make sure it was perfect and made my team double triple check and help me make sure it was indeed perfect too(so thank you Djs for your special touches too!)! See below for pictures of the finished product! 

For those of you who don't know what a run of show is...

  • Page 1 - this is always my inspiration for the theme of the show
  • Page 2 - this is optional, but this year I sketched each model wearing the look on the runway! In order to achieve this I had to know what every model would be wearing so I could sketch them exactly and get their hair color and look down right. This can get tricky because a lot of the time we do fittings the day before the show so I had to trust that the outfits I styled the girls in would be exactly what they wore based on their measurements if I did not see them until the day before the show which happened with many of the models! Guess what it all worked out :)
  • Page 3/4- lists each look and article of clothing and is listed in order as you see it come down the runway. 
  • Page 5- Thank you to all the Sponsors involved
  • Page 6/7- Thank you to everyone involved in making the show a huge success
Overall tips:

1. make your run of the show UNIQUE toward your brand and image
2. Thank EVERYONE! In this instance I believe more is ok as putting together a show involves manpower and everyone works very hard to help you make it the best it can be. So thank you's to me are like precious stones :)
3. check your spelling!! And make sure you have other eyes checking your spelling too :)
