The day we’ve been waiting for was finally here! All the students’ hard work certainly paid off last Saturday: the Modern Fairytale photo shoot was a huge success! After weeks of scrutinizing every last detail of their garments, fashion students from several different classes had the opportunity to showcase their masterpieces to their classmates, family, and LdM faculty members. It was a night filled with a deep appreciation for fashion and how it impacts each and every one of us. Designs from each of the four decades were presented in front of eye-catching backdrops created by the visual merchandising students. The models did a fantastic job bringing each garment to life – future Naomi Campbells perhaps?

Following the photo shoot was a cocktail hour where the students finally had the chance to relax, chat with friends, and reflect on this amazing experience. It must be exhilarating to watch your creation walk down the runway to the cheers of an excited crowd!

I have no doubts that one day, the design students will look back on this night as the starting point of an exciting career in the fashion world. Even when they become world famous designers – holding runway shows in the Piazza Navona in Rome or on the Great Wall of China – this is a night they are sure to remember for years to come!
