The team is back and the word is in: "Texture on the Runway" was AMAZING, and went above and beyond all expectations! Unfortunately for your content editor here, as well as for most of you, the event was just a few miles too far away (1,748.7 miles to be exact, but who’s counting?).
Thankfully, a live Twitter stream kept us updated to the goings-on at the event. From interviews with Kim Coles to pictures with the textured models, those in attendance made sure that those of us outside the invite-only event felt like we got an invite.
Of course if you missed the "Texture on the Runway" event AND the Twitter feed, not to fear! This editor was up all night watching the stream, downloading the photos and getting ready to write this EXACT post for y’all!
So to recap, here are the moments that had me saying, “Dang, why am I NOT there?!”
Kim Coles was there, and everyone loved her!
