Runway Couturier, Benefiting the Harvey Milk Foundation.

25 January 2012

From Runway Couturier.

This was an entertaining show with a positive, relaxed, fun atmosphere. In the beautiful Madrone Studios, with good sound and climate control. Music was good at this show. Little details make the experience.

Two exits per model, with a short intermission. Womens-wear only. Outfits were all vintage, from vintage retailers. Oooohs and Aaaahs from the audience for some pieces, including a striking art-deco mini-dress.

Show kicked off late: You would still have made the first exit arriving a half-hour late. Quite a bit of pre-show confusion, too, but a new venue for the show, with some details (... show lighting at the end of the runway ...) clearly still being wrangled. All handled with aplomb and courtesy by the show-runner and staff. (Fritz … Fritz … Fritz, John …)

Show gets some bonus points:
