Dania Denise: VioGemini Fashion Show

Last night I participated in an amazing fashion show in San Francisco. I wore two outfits by designer Violetta Vieux (hit up her official website for photos of her amazing designs: www.viogemini.com)--it was her first fashion show in the USA and I was so happy to be one of the 8 models chosen for the event!

My call time for hair and makeup was 5pm and the doors opened at 7:30pm, with the show starting at 10pm. The venue the show was at actually was the same place I did a previous show at a few months ago for another designer, Amanda Howard.

So it was nice that I was already familiar with the set up and how the event was going to be run. All the models, makeup artists and hair stylists got along and the whole night was a buzz of activity, especially once the public was let in at 7:30pm and got to watch the models get primped out on the main floor.

The first outfit I got to wear is called the "Star Dress" and with good reason--it's completely crocheted by hand with sequins and the "star" feature is only big enough to cover one of my breasts...the rest is completely exposed! Definitely a risque dress but I was so honored when Violetta asked me to be the one to wear it. Luckily, it fit perfectly and after making double-sided tape my best friend, I was more eager to wear it on the floor! The second outfit was from Violetta's debut bridal collection. I love short wedding dresses!

Below is footage that one of my friends took with his camera phone of me walking in the Star Dress...check it out!!!

The pictures from the event will be available within a few days. Soon as I get a hold of them, I'll be sure to post them here!
