Camilla at Mercedes Fashion Week 2012 (The Runway Photos I took)

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

(All photos taken by my on behalf of ClubQT)
More photos here on my Facebook Page here

My first day at Fashion week, ever! I volunteered to take runway photos on behalf of online store ClubQT, and I stood for the first time as media at a runway show. It was a new experience for me as a blogger because I usually am in front of the camera.. so to be suddenly thrown into a pit of rushed, hard-faced photographers, I had to learn quickly. 
I moulded myself so that my elbows, arms, legs and even my hair didn't get in the way of these photographers as I didn't want to experience their well-known short tempers. I crouched down and waited for the show to start. When it did, I was hit with a wall of light and colours. 
I call these models Camilla's geisha. The mix of Balinese, Japanese, Hawaiian and even Indian elements (I say Indian because my mom bought back these scarves from India which looked very much like the fabrics in this range) really worked well together. The hair, were Chinese and Japanese inspired, buns pinned together with chopsticks and tassels, yet Camilla also pinned these amazing strikingly long feathers to these geisha. My memories of visiting South East Asia back in 2009 came flooding back to me, so I personally loved this collection.
A unique thing I also found were those yellow/orange Nikes that one male model wore. I know that they are originally American but it adds a nice contrast to the rest of the Asia Pacific-inspired range.
