Late into the night Friday, Aug. 24, the hardworking BD team and everyone instrumental in the elegant affair took part in a final dress rehearsal to prepare for the main event. Under the creative direction of Douglas Riddle, models strutted their stuff on the newly-built runway, as chairs were still being placed alongside it!
Louisville Ballet dancers Annie Honebrink and Ben Needham-Wood perfected the steps of their romantic pas de deux, â€œSaudade Amore,â€ in anticipation of the following eveningâ€™s riveted audience. A sense of excitement permeated the final night before Louisvilleâ€™s premiere fashion show.
