Starry Night

I had to stop myself from crying. It was a very emotional moment to see Lumi sprint down the runway, stand mid-catwalk and shyly, but excitedly grin to the roaring crowd. It was all I could do not to race to where she was, and shamelessly embrace her. I didn’t think I would feel such a whirlwind of emotions surge inside of me, but I did.

Weeks before that moment, I received a text: “Andrea, I would like to dress you for fashion week”. “YASS!!” My heart leapt for joy! For me, who am a total sucker for the brand, there was no better way to show up at fashion week, than dressed up in Lumi!

Two days before the shows, I squeezed in a fitting into my schedule. When Lumi showed me the collection, it made me shiver! It was SOOO GOOD!! I was left pining for every piece. The thrill multiplied by 3 when the models strolled past my eyes. Seeing Lumi shine at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week El Salvador, made me swell with pride. Wearing this cute look, gave me the splendid sensation of being a part of something great, something vast as a starry night. Bravo, Lumi!

Tuve que esforzarme por contener las lágrimas. Ver a Lumi marchar por la pasarela, detenerse a medio camino y sonreír tímida, pero entusiasmadamente, fue verdaderamente emocionante. En ese momento, sólo quería correr a abrazarla y felicitarla. Nunca creí que sentiría tan fuertes emociones agitarse dentro de mí.

Semanas antes del momento estelar, recibí un mensaje de texto: “Andrea, quisiera vestirla para fashion week”. “SIIIII”. Mi corazón palpitó de alegría. Para mí, que estoy locamente enamorada de la marca, no había mejor forma de aparecer en Mercedes Benz Fashion Week que vestida de Lumi. Dos días previos a los shows, me acerqué al minúsculo taller para probarme la ropa. Ver y tocar parte de la colección me dió escalofríos ¡¡Era INCREÍBLE!! La emoción se multiplicó por tres cuando las modelos desfilaron en la pasarela. Me sentí orgullosísima y contentísima al mirar a Lumi brillar en fashion week. Por otro lado. tener el honor de usar uno de sus looks, me hizo sentir parte de algo grande, tan grande, tal vez, como el vasto universo estrellado.
