Backstage at a Fashion Show

So, on the weekend, I went to watch and support some wonderful, upcoming, young (aged 14-25 - yes, YOUNG AND SERIOUSLY TALENTED) fashionistas at the Expressions Fashion Gala sponsored by the Butterfly Foundation. This team of budding designers, models, photographers and artists have been putting up a Fashion Show every year since 2007 at the Malvern Town Hall. The aim of these shows is not only to provide a platform to young talent but also to promote healthy body image and diversity. 3 very good aims! So, off I went to be a part of this cause (tickets were only 15$) and was quite impressed with what I saw. Here are some pics from the pre-show event and a sneak peak at what was going on backstage:
