You saw the show, now check out what went on backstage during the conclusion to the first ever UW Fashion Week on March 16th, 2012. Backstage, there was a frenzy of models, designers, and staff all working extremely hard to pull off the first ever MODA runway show. There were racks upon racks of clothes from designers Ann Taylor, Land’s End, Pitaya, Rent the Runway, New York & Co., Gap, Shoo, Rachel Frank Designs, Jazzman, Twigs, Caroline Elizabeth, Libby Peterkort, and Nicholas Schmidt. All of the shoes for the show were provided by Aldo and Madison Sole. Thanks to everyone backstage, the show went smoothly and was an excellent conclusion to the first UW fashion week.
