I reunited with my gal-pals last night to walk the runway at Veronica MacIsaac’s Fall show. “C’mon, it’ll be fun!” my friend Cheryl (owner of City Models) urged. My head was saying no – it was a Friday night after a busy week of client meetings, job-site checks and endless paperwork – but my heart said yes. So I once again packed my model bag and headed to the venue after work.
A glass of wine, multiple hugs and a few hours of catching up later, and I knew I had made the right decision. The five of us laughed over make up and hair results, compared ourselves to the twenty-something girls beside us and reminisced about past fashion show stories….all before we strutted our stuff at the 35 minute show. While the twenty-somethings preened themselves and stayed solo, we sat huddled together catching up on twenty-something years of stories. The show was just a job – the pre-show with my gal pals was the main event.
