It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of it all—from adhering seat numbers on chairs the night before, to making sure the Run of Show cards were perfectly placed the day of. As a graphic designer, I wasn't sure what to expect at my first Tommy Hilfiger fashion show. Having seen early renderings of the set design, and having helped design our fashion show invitations, I was still taken by how well it all came together. 

A snow capped mountain backdrop was complete with an alpine lodge and chairlift in the distance. The wooden planked runway was trimmed with trees and fake snow. All perfect foreshadowing to the outdoors inspired collection of plaids, parkas, and puffer vests with the usual Tommy twist. But the moment that really got me was when all the models came back out on the runway at the end of the show. The sheer amount of time, talent, and energy of everyone involved was remarkable. And hey, seeing the show reviewed in the New York TImes was pretty neat too.
