Portuguese Shoes
The first runway show I attended was by Portuguese Shoes

Colombiamoda 2014 was my fourth year attending Colombia’s Fashion Week, and my first time doing so with a press pass.

Runway shows at Colombiamoda are normally invite-only, but with the press pass, I was allowed to attend whichever I wanted.

Not only that, but the press, photographers and videographers had a separate queue and were given early access to choose seats (if they didn’t have already have one reserved), before the rest of the attendees were allowed in.

I discovered an affinity for attending the shows. Each was different and unique, with music carefully selected to fit the mood of the designs.

It may have been a shoe show, but it was the dresses that captured my eye

In this show, I learned two things. Unless you’re VIP sitting in the front row, you’re better off in a higher position as it can be difficult to see from the second or third row.

The second thing I learned is that swimwear shows have much more lighting than lingerie shows, making them easier to photograph

  1. What a wonderful event. Being in the press has it’s perks, those press pass are really something aren’t they? This are some good shots! And it’s also good to see Izabel again, I haven’t seen her in a while…
