Buyers, photographers, and their special guests were invited to attend; so we were very lucky to get an invitation from a friend of Donna's son, Chris. Daniel, who helped to organize the evening's AntePrima event, lives in New York City. Here's Daniel with Donna:
A big part of the fun was spending time "backstage" (thanks, Daniel!) to see the models arrive in their street clothes, then be transformed by hairdressers and makeup artists. It was fascinating to see how young, tall, and extremely thin they were up close. Each model had a very unique and beautiful face. They looked amazing on the runway! We loved the music, the glitter, and the overall party atmosphere. Great fun!
We've included a few of our own photos here. Should you wish to see all of the models and ensembles from last Thursday night, you can find them by clicking here.
Take a look below and enjoy.
