As I have mentioned (numerous times) I had another go at the Pompeii to Paris talk on Thursday.
It was a crazy day: sewing and dressing and transporting things across town and organising, and then, at the end of it, getting in invite to be a last minute guest speaker for another event.
But that’s another story. So here is Thursday’s story, in pictures.
The dressing room was tiny, so the dressed models waited in the theater before the audience arrived:
They chatted, and compared dresses, and posed for pictures, and goofed off, and did lots of fun stuff, all of which I missed, because I was busy being…busy.
I was the last person dressed and made up, so missed all the fun. I ran out just in time for the talk, but at least I got to admire all the beautiful models in their dresses as I talked.
The models came out in chronological order.
This time I had a power point to go with the talk, so it was wonderful to be able to compare the models dresses with my inspiration.
One of the things I really love about getting photos from the audience during the talk is that I can see that the models are paying attention to what I say too.
I wave my arms around a lot as I talk. My hair ribbon kept falling out. The movement does make for great pictures though.
I found some really fantastic counterpoint images for the power point presentation, and love how they interact with the dresses.
After posing around the screen throughout the talk, the models all came forward at the end.
And then, of course, the audience got to meet the models, and then we took photographs.
And then we took everything off and I went home and had a rest and it was wonderful.
