You’ve been to the fashion show, you experienced the thrill, you saw the fashion scene, and you had a glimpse of what was going through designers heads these past couple of months by viewing their collections! Now that Spring 2016 Utah Fashion Week is nearly a sweet memory we have to remember, we’re here to bring all those memories rushing back through the eyes of Zaiya Collection!
As you may have read in our last blog, this year we were part of the Utah Fashion Week Spring 2016 Bridal Show! The night was filled with featured collections from 8 talented local independent designers: Natalie Wynn, Janay Marie, W. N. Ferreira, Guia Soleta, R. Nibley Designs, Rachel Elizabeth Designs, Garth Peay of Perfectly Suited, and (us) Zaiya Collection! The collections from every designer this Spring were marvelous but behind every few seconds on the runway is hours of work.

Starting with model castings and selections, designers have to find fresh faces that would work for the look they are going for! Then those models have to attend fittings and be placed on model look boards with their selected attire for the night. Through this whole process designers also have to put hours of work into each look for it to be perfected. This is why the day of the show is so anticipated and backstage madness is at its fullest with makeup and hair, last minute alterations, and nervous but eagar models waiting to strut the runway!
As you could tell behind the scenes is a mixture of excitement + chaotic frenzy, as the models sit down for their hair and make-up transformations, the room is full of anticipation! When it is finally show time and your track starts playing *Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift playing in the background* it’s the time you’ve been long waiting for, 1-2-3 GO GO GO.

Once we all walked the finale and UFW had come to an end, we couldn’t help but feel relieved and overjoyed over the splendid night we just experienced! We had such a lively time at the Utah Fashion Week Spring 2016 Bridal Show, and hope everyone enjoyed our bridal collection just as much as we enjoyed making it! Zaiya Collection is extremely lucky to be part of such a fantastic event that showcases all the superb/talented designers we have here in Salt Lake City! We get to meet lovely people who adore the world of fashion as much as we do while doing what we love, we couldn’t ask for more! See you next time Utah Fashion Week, thanks for such a memorable ride!
See you on Thursdays with new insights on everything that is Zaiya!
