Shopping for cool clothes is one of my favorite pastimes. Luckily, there are lots of great stores in Portland, so I have plenty of places to spend my hard earned money.
Sometimes, stores have fashion shows to show off their newest clothes. Miguel attended a fashion show last weekend. Listen to our recent conversation to learn all about it!

Miguel:  Hey Beth, I did the coolest thing this weekend. I, uh, actually volunteered to work at a fashion show. And, um, because I’m kinda tall, they had me work the door, so I was like the bouncer.

Beth:  Oh, how cool. Was it at a club or a museum?

Miguel:  Well, it was at this really cool industrial building that was converted into a event space. And actually the space was amazing. Like, the ceilings were like 50 feet high and, um, it looked really like a big-time New York, you know, fashion show. But it was also cool because there was a huge line outside and I got to be kinda the person who, you know, let people in or didn’t, and, uh, you know, I had a lotta power.

Beth:  That’s fun. Were you like a character from a movie? Like, “You, over there – you’re in!” And then picking and choosing all the people that were A-list.

Miguel:  Well, I wanted to be be like that, but unfortunately it was more like whether or not they had tickets or not. You know, I couldn’t really do it based on how they looked. But, still it was like the show was getting close to sold out, so I got to sort of like tell people, like, break their heart and tell ‘em they weren’t going to get in, but then find out that I could let like 5 more people in. So, it was really cool.

Beth:  That’s exciting. It’s always fun to be in charge of events.

It sounds like Miguel had a great time at the fashion show. He really enjoyed working the door. Not only did he get to be in control of a big crowd, but he also got to see every person who came in. That must have been great people watching.
One of the best things about going to a fashion show is seeing all of the beautiful people who come to watch. The last time I went to a fashion show, I was more impressed by the audience than by the models on the runway. Everyone was dressed in such hip clothes!
Have a great week!
