Backstage Confidential: Helping Out on Fall's Runway


Two weeks ago I was asked to help out backstage at the Dress for DAIS Fashion Show, put on by the Domestic Abuse Intervention Services. The show was a benefit to raise money for this vital nonprofit which operates the only domestic violence center in all of Dane County.

The entire night celebrated women and highlighted Madison’s wonderful boutiques, including Change, Chauette, Iona, Lu Anders, Middleton Dress Company, Moda Italy, Neena, the Purple Goose, Pure Barre, Studio Z, Terese Zache, the Velvet Button and Z. Bella.

My role was to be a final dresser and check over each model before they hit the runway. Models did a fabulous job and it was fun getting a sneak peek at each look pre-show. Below is a slide show of photography by event photographer Timothy Hughes (who also shoots our City Style page every month like here, here and here).
