I was blown away by how gorgeous and fit the women were – many of whom had never modelled before! The backstage experience was filled with fast-paced changes of out-there makeup and hair and costume, with the directors even cutting chunks out of the script for the second night as the first show was way too long…and each two years the TFAD shows have gotten bolder, more ambitious, more theatrical and technology-savvy.
Here are a few images from my subsequent ‘TFAD’ experience.
In early 2010 they held a small fundraising fashion show – Out of the Closet– at La De Da Boutique in Tauranga. I did quick makeup and used some strange coloured plastic lashes on the models. Hey, I was experimenting. 😉 The makeup was just a quickie to vamp up the models own makeup they were already wearing. Here’s Leilani backstage, Gilly rocking blue lashes and Linda on the ‘runway’.
