Back Stage with Jean-Pierre Braganza

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Three designers, one location….a bit of a nightmare to get in one location next to another and I went into the wrong location and thought it was too calm when I went backstage looking for Jean-Pierre Braganza I understood I was at the wrong venue. As I was walking out I ran into Imran Amed who was looking for a back entrance to join the show. We went in front of the right venue and were told the place was packed and we could not get in. I called Jean-Pierre minutes before his show was to start and he sent someone out to get both of us in but as the show was started and the place was packed to capacity Imran and I were stuck behind people much taller than both of us. We could see basically nothing and decided to go back stage after the show to have a look. It was total chaos , imagine 3 designers, same location and a not so pristine organization. Anyway, great to see him and Hannah Marshall’s girls in a line up. Here is a bit of atmosphere for all of you.
