As mentioned in a previous post, this past Sunday I was invited to cover Fashion and Student Trends' Spring 2010 fashion show. The show highlighted the works of seventeen UC Berkeley student designers and over seventy student models. Many of the designs surpassed my expectations, leaning towards the more professional end of the spectrum. Overall, I had a great time attending the show. Here are some of the photographs I took backstage, of the guests, and of the show. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them. (Note: The first few images of the show are a little rough. I found a better spot to shoot the designs during the latter half of the show. I was also unable to showcase every outfit and every collection due to these initial technical difficulties.)

This shot resulted from quick reflexes. I think it came out perfectly.
