Today, the fashion students had a dress fitting session with the models. Event Director, Marc Robinson called the shots on the sequence and positions and patiently spent the entire morning finalizing the plan for the event.

All changes and fittings were completed and approved by Marc, after which he headed for an interview with the local media.

Here is a peek into the hubbub behind the scenes:
