Day Five of L'Oréal Fashion Week Spring 2007

Ford's Joanne Chia
Day Five was the big one for Modelresource, so lots of photos found themselves getting posted.

Before any of the shows got underway I caught up with Ford's Joanne Chia, who is a Canadian model living in Atlanta. She's in town for a few months now and made an appearance in the Slavka Plavsic show Friday evening.

The afternoon's first show featured designs from students at London's Fanshawe College, but unfortunately there was no announcement in the lobby to signal the show's start, so I quietly made my way in and watched the show with Eva Shaw from the back of the room.

A series of independant designers followed, starting with Janet Lapuz.

Bojana is rushed into hair & makeup for Pink Tartan, which is scheduled to start 45 minutes after the Christine Phillip show has ended.

While that's going on I ask Pink Tartan's casting agent, Paola Fullerton if all the models have arrived. Not only did everyone show up on time and prepared, Fullerton tells me, but most have taken the initiative to get into the shoes they will be wearing in the show and have started practicing their choreography.

In the runway room meanwhile, Pink Tartan's show producer Helen Krispis, is overseeing the laying of a white floor, having chandeliers added and rearranging the seating to create a more intimate feel.

Richelle Dobson
Showtime! And I have to start by saying thanks to HIGHRISE Magazine, who gave up one of their seats when the Fashion Design Council of Canada neglected to assign me one.

As mentioned above, the set was quite intimate with the front row of seats pushed forward to the very edge of the runway. From the shots below you'll see I was in the second row, which was back far enough from the front row that it allowed for models to return to the top of the runway without crossing the next model. Sound confusing? The pictures explain exerything.
