So here is the resume of my experience of Day 1.
I arrive @ Marché Bonsecours to obtain my Media accreditation. Yes, never would I have thought I would say that I am part of the big 'media family' one day, but hey, its pretty cool to be included. A shout out & big thank you to Sensation Mode's Karine Poirier for her great help and niceness. And that is when the fun started (there is a bit of irony in my statement, yes!).
They should really come up with a How to book for first-timers. This was a first hard day. My camera decided to bail on me, I wasn't sitting in the best seats for pictures, I missed an entire show (Nadya Toto) because of an incredibly long line-up to obtain your media tickets (I thought our media accreditation was enough, but apparently not, we have to wait in line for our tickets as well), I was hot and sweating with the many layers of clothes I had on, the weather does not help as we have to wear coats and boots and change and all that good stuff, the meets and greets can be exhausting and hard, especially for someone as reserved as me. But hey, all in all, it was a good first day. Day 2 is another day! :)
Here are the few pics I was able to take from the different shows I attended. I promise I will try to take pictures of actual models wearing actual clothes in the next few days...Lol
(Start of the Post-Vernissage by Thrusst show taken from my Blackberry because my camera bailed on me...yeah i know, we see nothing and its blurry.)
As for reviews of the shows, I will write an entry on my favorite looks and shows on friday, so stay tuned!
