First of all, I want to show you my lovely group, the friends I was able to go with, the people I fell in love even more: Andrea, Sorel, and Isa. THE CHAPIN CREW:
The night I arrived to Costa Rica, there was a showroom full of colors, movement, laughs, and beauty. From strippers doing all that crazy movements (which I wouldn't even be able to do one) to live mannequins. The designers had a very interesting way of showing their work.
DAY 2 OF RUNWAY:
On day two of the runway, I was able to see the show, not just being at the backstage. I sat at the photographers's place, I was at the floor. Not the nicest place to sit but after a while of watching the spectacular show, you forget all about it.

DAY 3 OF RUNWAY:
On the last day of the fashion week, I sat at the right of the show, finally a chair! I sat next to Miss Nicaragua's Director, whom I had the pleasure to meet; she was such a lovely lady and couldn't be any more excited of being able to meet her.
This show surprised me, quite a lot! I was seeing students maybe 2-3 years older than me making their dreams come true, their thoughts becoming alive. Just like I am trying to do, they inspired me like they have no idea.

2ND SHOW OF THE NIGHT:
- Estilo Costa Rica / PROCOMER
The final show was stunning, I was speechless by everyone's work but specially from one. I am happy to say he was from Mexico, a latin fellow. His creations just made me want to take photos of the show. The mood, the music, the models, and those creations... favorite of the week.
