Durante my last trip in New York comes the day of the ”show”.
In an old ex-synagogue, which for the occasion has been an incredible location, the Mister Triple X Runway awaits me.
Go down to the makeup room where the other male and female models await in a row.
Next door another queue instead for the outfits fitting.
In the while I know an Italian guy living in New York since 4 years.
His name is Andrea Denver. Seems nice …. we become friends straightway, and after the show we decided to go out for evening together … (but that’s another story …)
Back to us …. we’re almost there …
I was informed that I will be to open and close the show … is not that great?! … But then a little bit of anxiety over me…. I start to realize I’m going to parade during the fashion week in New York…really!!
Although I can be icy in certain situations, but now I begin to tremble a bit knees … it’s a matter of moments because I don’t have time to realize it that’s already dark and the entire audience suddenly silent. … a few moments again and the music starts …. the lights comes up to me and …. I have to go.
Look right and impassive and start walking in front of me approaching the wall of photographers that are waiting for down the catwalk.
Shake at the knees vanishes after the first step… thankfully!
Fast round trip, outfit change and then comes the time of the show’s closing, when one after another we ride one last time and then await the entrance of the designer to applause.
Gone!… all within minutes …. It would seem a bit …
An amazing feeling and an indescribable experience ….
We are still all lined up in front of the photographers when Andrea Denver beckons me to hurry up … a party awaits us!
Back in the land and we return behind the scenes.
They are all elated, all happy …. there is a climate of post football victory in a locker room …
We change in a moment and go …. this night is still ours!
