Tonight: High Voltage

I just got back from High Voltage, the UT Fashion Show, and I am surprised that I am able to type this right now. I almost died from being impressed. Seriously. I was blown away! It was unbelievably amazing! There were thousands of people in attendance. I met so many new people and got to catch up with a lot of people who I hadn't seen in a while, too. The super sweet PR people even gave me a media badge which enabled me to be able to sit in one of the primo seats that flanked the runway. (Thank you, Stephant!)

I loved my seat because I was able to see the workmanship of the garments up close, however, I have now learned that having a spot right next to the runway doesn't always get you the best photos. Hardly any of mine turned out, but perhaps tomorrow I'll be able to redirect you to a page where the photos are stellar... or at the very least acceptable. Here are two of mine that aren't too terrible:

My friend Jackie (whom I met on the set of Friday Night Lights three years ago) designed this dress. Her collection won one of the evening's awards!

These are three of the looks by Audrey Young who had one of my favorite collections. I love the chiffon and the feminine menswear look and would buy any of these right now.

Even though my photos were a bust, I think my video of the evening wear and bridal collections may have turned out okay. I hope to check out the raw footage tomorrow and get a little recap video online in the next couple of days. In the meantime, you can check out Cheryl's footage from the live stream Fashionably Austin did today. Enjoy!
