6 AM call time!Â I had on my oh-so-pretty blue Twinkle dress.Â I was so excited as I entered The Salon at the Bryant Park Tent with my cool backstage pass!Â Yes, I was legit lol. Hair and makeup people were running around like headless chickens!Â Models were practicing their runway struts.Â Reporters had their cameras out and about, interviewing and snapping pics.Â Yes, the day was finally upon us.Â Time for Twinkle to showcase their wonderful array of girly and sophisticated dresses, fun/funky shorts, and awesome skirts.
There was so much energy around me it didnâ€™t matter that I was half awake after only getting two hours of sleep!!!Â The adrenaline was kicking in.Â Amidst all the chaos I was able to snap some pics with some of my fellow interns, like Gina here in the gray top.Â Our official Twinkle mascot, Milan (Wenlanâ€™s French bulldog) also could not contain his excitement as she ran back and forth across the runway.Â The models are dressed, the crowd is waiting in anticipationâ€¦..ready, set, go!!Â Itâ€™s Twinkle Time! : ) Letâ€™s show them how itâ€™s done here at New York Fashion Week!
