What surprised me most, and I don't know why, was that the designs were really inspiring. Whether it was ErosBlaine or Amy Breen, Ryan Ripley or Manny Cuevas, and many more in-between, there was something about all of the designers' collections that really took my breath away. Unfortunately, the behind the scenes pictures only included designs from the first-half of the show, and I assume that the models were dressed again at intermission, which neither Diana nor I was present for.
Without further ado...

Hope y'all enjoyed that and that it didn't clog up your browsers, as I'm sure it will do mine. Back stage was such a great experience! Love it love it love it. All pictures but the last three were by Diana Liu.
