SKIRTING THE ISSUE

Hello,
   How are you all??? it is raining cats and dogs right now at my place and i am not loving it, but don't worry i am not here to rant about it. I am here to blog about the ootn that i wore on the first day of Nepal Fashion Week but before that let me share the experience of it all from the very beginning. It may be a long one, but please endure. :)
   So, I got a phone call from college telling me that being senior of the college, we all have to help backstage for a day, I told okay since i thought 1 day wouldn't do any harm. But later I got to know that we had to help for 4 days straight and I called college to sort it out but to no avail, it was a compulsion. I was very skeptical about this at first because (a)- I did not wanted to work backstage (at all) (b)- Despite of knowing quite a few models, I was paired with someone I didn't know because she was new and fresh one (C)- I for all can't start the conversation, I am too shy and reserved when it comes to opening up with new people.  Me and a friend of mine, we were going through the same situation, we just did not wanted to do this and we were blaming each other for saying "okay" at the first place.
     After we tried everything possible to persuade the teacher, which went in vain, another headache was choosing something to wear. You must be thinking, "hya backstage basne ta ho ni euta jeans,shirt, chappal lagayeni bhai halthyo ni". I was thinking the same too, but after the program was over, we had to dine together with the guest who were all VIP people, it wouldn't be a fair choice right? If you know what i mean. The confusion was because you couldn't be too dolled up and all pretty because you are not the spectator and not sitting in front of the stage and you couldn't be too casual and laid back because you are not limited only to the backstage. Had it been like that, i would wear the most comfy clothes, do my work and run out of there as soon as possible.
       For the first day I chose to wear a simple sweatshirt from frontrowshop.com and the assymetrical skirt with a very tiny kitten heel just to be safe and comfy because i did not know what the night had in store for me.














So, I went there, all we had to do was help the models get changed. All models were assigned with one designer student who were supposed to help them dress and be ready with the needle and thread if any issues came up with the dress. I met my model, she was very sweet and easy to get along to, she was just 20 and was very pretty and cute. All went well, the only problem i had there was my aching feet. The 1st day, we had to reach there a little earlier than other days and we were literally on our feet for good 5-6 hrs, even wearing kitten heels didn't do no good to my feet, they were aching crazily and by the time i went home, it was hard for me to even stand. Learning lesson from the first day, i carried a pair of slippers with me and wore them in backstage and sat down whenever i got chance and changed into my heels to come out. All in all, it was quite a different experience for me and to be true, i loved it. It was very tiring yet so much fun. I loved being part of such a prestigious event, learnt lot of new things, more importantly i learnt to be more open and less reserved. I had an awesome time especially at the after party :P. I had a completely different thought about it at first, but later i found myself enjoying the experience thoroughly. That is it.

  2. I think you have selected a really cute outfit that works both for backstage and for later...It was interesting to read your experience and I'm glad you liked it in the end. What I do for a living is not at all related with fashion, so I was never backstage on such an event but I was asked to be a photographer for a few fashion shows and that was a lot of fun.
