Rinat’s Paris Photo Album: Working Backstage at Paris Fashion Week

Yesterday Paris Fashion Week S/S 2011 started — and what better way to be involved than to be a dresser backstage? You see the clothes up close, you get to meet the designer and team, and see the show without being invited or trying to find a way to crash it.

I was able to be backstage at the Nicolas Andreas Taralis S/S 2011 Paris show as a dresser. It was a lot of fun to see the behind-the-scenes prepping — and to see male models (LOL) They were not really the hottest men I have seen, but they were some good eye candy.

After the show, I recognized the model I was dressing so I asked her, “Where do I know you from?” and “Have you done any special spreads?” Then I told her a little of about myself, what I do, and where I went to school. She told me that she did a show in San Francisco for the Academy of Art University!

Her name is Uliana and she was a model for one of my looks! She remembered My latex garment that she wore.

Isn’t that fate?!
