{Family} College Girl's Runway Show

Last weekend was College Girl's senior runway show.  Senior?! I know, can you believe it?! Each year the designers have more responsibility and pieces to design and by senior year they have to do a full collection.  It doesn't count as classwork either so it's on top of their course load.
To add to the stress, the show was being held a month earlier this year.   I don't know how they do it, but the students always pull off an amazing show.  
We were able to spend two nights visiting her college town and came up early so we could help her out with all of the last minute errands and jobs.  She had her own banner hanging up on campus to advertise the show (hers is the white one).
We got to see the work rooms and watch the designers finishing up their pieces.  Here was CG's inspiration board for her collection (these are posted along the hallway).
A look at the workroom.  They are surrounded by windows and get a lot of beautiful light in here. They were all pretty calm if you ask me.  I got to help out a little and pressed some of her garments.
Here she's hemming some chiffon pants.  The second part of this involves that pink lighter.  First you slice, then you burn to keep the ends from fraying.
Miss High School came up with my mother in law and we met up for dinner the night of the show.
After dinner we went over to the venue (transformed field house).   We had really good seats this year (perks of being a senior parent).
Her cheering section!
I took a peek back stage, her garments are hung and waiting to be rocked down the runway. You can see a bit of the model makeup in this shot too.  No detail is overlooked, the designers plan it all...from hair to make up to shoes and accessories.
Her models backstage.
There were lots of press there! Exciting!
The seniors end the show so there was a lot of anticipation leading up to their collections.
Her models came out individually but I'm showing them as a group so you can see the entire collection. I wish I could have picked up the colors a little better, the pale pink pieces look white in my photos.
Hugs and flowers from her sister.
The backs of the designs--just as important as the fronts.  Phew! It's over!!
She got some instant pics at the show and I snapped this pic of them when we were out celebrating her great night.  It was another whirlwind college weekend and I'm sure going to miss them when she graduates.  I'm trying to soak it all in before that day.  It has flown by!

Wow! This is amazing! Everything is so professional! Having the advertisements on campus, the super nice sewing room, the runway, the makeup, everything. I am so impressed. Her collection looks so modern and everything flows together so well. She is extremely talented! And what a great school.

So she had to sew all those clothes!?!? And find her own models? How do they do that? And it's been four years already, wonder if it went as fast as it did for me a lady she doesn't even know!
