runway, but the true fun and hard work of fashion shows happen backstage, with designers, stylists, models and make-up artists running around like mad to make it all look effortless and easy once it’s on the runway. I went behind the scenes at Fashion’s Living Canvas to sneak a peek before the show.

Hair and Make-Up

I had a make-up appointment with my favorite make-up artist Tiffiny Luong.  I have organized charity fashion shows and modeled in a few, but the scene backstage was organized chaos. I found my seat between  model Dawn Neufeldmodel LeeAnne Locken and blogger  Cynthia Smoot. I chatted with Dawn about life, pageants, and fashion

The Crowd

Fashion’s Living Canvas brought out a flock of fashion editors, stylists, models and fans flaunting their best and brightest outfits, shoes and attitudes like proud peacocks. I spotted celebrities, fashionistas, and Dallas notables. Here are some of the most fashionable moments from the crowd.

  1. It might have been nice to be mentioned as a designer or interviewed….but I guess that’s how it goes. Becca Jett .

    1. Jett only two out of the six designers where mentioned in this article, and DFW Bites of Style hasn’t conducted any designer interviews. Hopefully we will soon.
