Organizing a fashion show is one of a challenging task. It needs team work where it involves many people’s co-operation and co-ordination. Whether your fashion show is to be a simple fundraiser or an elaborate fashion extravaganza you will have to work hard to achieve proud tears and rounds of applause. Choice of lighting, location and music are important elements of the production process.
Organizing a fashion show means selecting and inviting a suitable judge, selecting models and new fashioned apparels that suit them, selecting a theme and getting the hall, wall and floor done accordingly, choosing a place or a hall that has a ramp, selecting music, inviting the press and photographers, selling tickets, and the list goes on and on.
Do you want to keep it on a local level or go big? In either case, prepare yourself for a little begging as well as negotiating and you had better be organized or be good at it. Get yourself a land line because your cell phone bill is going to be outrageous if you don’t have a plan. Factor in your fuel consumption as you will no doubt be doing a lot of traveling.
Theme also plays a role in this. The environment should ideally reflect the central theme of the clothing line you are featuring. This can be achieved with props and decor as well as through the location itself. The wrong venue can kill a show.
The judge for the fashion show needs to be someone famous and also should have idea about the recent trends in fashion. The audience are more fascinated about the one who presides the show as well. There should be a minimum of 3 judges to judge a particular show so that the final results are not biased. Judges should be invited at-least a month prior to the day of the show. Make sure the judges are warmly welcomed and are escorted to their seats by the ushers.
Models should be selected with care so that they merge with the theme and the clothes or any fashionables they display. The make up man should also be invited to dress up the models and make them presentable on time. The models and the make up man are free to select the clothes and costumes that suit them. The theme is usually selected depending on the clothes that are to be show cased.
Thus with team work & good planning, fashion shows can be organized and populated.
