Who would think that New Orleans would be known for its fashion? Well we are breaking through barrels people! March 15-18 Fashion Week New Orleans had their fashion week, or should I say our fashion week. There is no lucky guess that I was there. I'm sadly to say that I'm not an intern for FWNO anymore because it ended last night! I love those wonderful woman who helped out and made those three amazing nights a blast. I did not know how hard it was to produce a fashion show and keep it in order.

All of these shows were so good. My job was mostly to help out back stage and man when I tell you those model changes where hectic. My favorite would have to be HANDS DOWN Anna Mixon and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Saks Fifth Avenue had 10 models and they all needed changes. That was the most adrenaline filled part of the night. We were getting the clothes off them, putting their feet in these shoes putting on their dress, and all of them had jewelry! But we made it and had a Grand finally.
What better people can I work with, I am looking forward to be doing this again next year.
