My Friday night was hectic! I’d already been to the Diesel exhibit and the Raf Simons party when my friend asked me to accompany her to the Sergio Rossi show. On the way over to the venue I wondered, how do you highlight shoes during a fashion show?
The answer arrived quicker than I expected! As we navigated our way through the densely packed crowd, the show began.
A semi-transparent curtain hanging just above knee level covered most of the L-shaped stage. Models would stand in a row before strutting a few steps to assume a new position, gradually working their way down the runway. This technique of only semi-revealing the models was an excellent solution to highlighting the finely crafted shoes.
Reaching the end point, the models posed unobstructed in front of the Sergio Rossi backdrop, allowing for perfect marquee shots. Hong Kong based model Gaile had the most interesting poses. The production design for the night was well done!
