I am a member of the FBI in Los Angeles (Fashion Business Inc.) they are an amazing organization to belong to. They along with the LA Focus Apparel and Accessories Show began the Designer Launchpad Fashion Show which allows "newbies" a chance to show their collections on the runway.
I was fortunate enough to be selected to participate and let me tell you it is a whirl wind, the show is pretty much put on by the FBI so we have little control over things like models (kinda sucks) Music, etc. but they do a good job considering. I had an amazing time and will write in detail (or maybe video myself talking about it) it's a lot to have to type...lol about everything leading to the moment.
I will say that the moment I guess I had always waited for was the "walk" down the runway and when it came that time I was so overwhelmed with emotion, it was so great! no matter how large or small your opportunity it's an amazing feeling to feel like you are on the right path.
