If the recently-concluded fashion weeks in the country made you think it’s tough to make an impact with your appearance, then here are some secrets gathered from some definite scene-stealers in the audience at fashion weeks.
Please wear dark glasses all the time. It keeps people guessing, and the photographers will click plenty of shots of you from all angles, just in case. Of course, you do run the danger of tripping over in the main show area where it’s not so bright and sunny, but you’ll learn to manage.
Legs are attention grabbers. Do flash yours. Shorts work wonderfully; a mini skirt works nicely too.
Wear boots, Uggs, or knee-highs, even if it’s 34°C outside. They make an impression and show you have a good collection.
Vertiginous heels make good eye-catchers. Especially if you are a front row regular. But the drama is outside. Stomp up and down many times as if you were born with your feet at a 45° angle.
Wear a hat! So what if you block the view of people behind you? The cameras will catch you; they are so desperate for offbeat visuals.
A fur stole, or feathers work wonders. No, please don’t go out with a gun looking for furry things to embellish your wardrobe; the faux version is just as good.
Stand prominently and get a friend to take your photographs; it is a great idea to kick-start the attention.
