I was fortunate enough to attend the “Emerging Designer Showcase” fashion show;  organized by ‘iconcept media group’ http://www.iconceptmedia.com and was welcomed back stage as part of the ‘press’ where I got some behind the scene photos of the organized chaos prior to the show! What an inspiring show featuring up and coming designers, Ghassan Yazbeck and Lourdinha Noyama.
