The intermission where staff are head down bum up and pacing around in nothing less than flat shoes is such a contrast to the highly staged runway shows. Shouts from the front of house manager to the sound of a hundred footsteps and the rustling of paper, this is the human and not so glamorous side of MBFFS.
But this underrated part of a fashion show rarely covered in magazines or shown in media is one that's left a memorable imprint. I whispered to Marvic: "Is it weird that I find this changeover period more mesmerising than the actual show?"
Because to these workers - the student volunteers, the sound, lighting and setting crew, the photographers eagerly waiting in the pit - a fashion show isn't all fun and games, it's their job. Seeing them execute it with speed, efficiency and a no-nonsense attitude was very refreshing. These pictures were snapped during the interval between the Fashion Bloggers on Style show and the Camilla and Marc resort show.
So here's a shoutout to all those hard at work behind-the-scenes. They deserve a pat on the back.
