Since watching Lauren Conrad on The Hills I have been vying for a job in the fashion industry, so when I was offered the opportunity to volunteer backstage at the Abolition Project‘s fashion show to raise awareness and donations for human trafficking, I was all over it. Of course, I opted for hair and makeup, and it was a blast! Seeing all of the designers’ visions come to life was absolutely amazing. All of the volunteers, designers and models had such a great time backstage, and having the opportunity to get involved was awesome.
The show was put on Monday, November 19th and boasted nine designers and over 280 volunteers. It runs one more night at the EMU Ballroom for $10 – tickets can be purchased at the door, which opens at 7 p.m. tonight. Escape Eugene’s sudden flash flood with a fabulous night indoors supporting a great cause – it’s worth it!
