The models, most usually still in Converse sneakers, skinny jeans, and hair rollers, walk the Yigal Azrouel runway after the camera crew are in place in the photographer's pit. This is the opportunity the fashion show crew has to adjust lighting, make sure the timing of the music and models walks is in sync and address any last minute changes.
After a successful Yigal Azrouel rehearsal at The Highline Stages, the house opens and the people fill in to take their seats. Then the lights will dim and the show, complete with fully dressed and styled models, can begin. The crowd gets quite, the front row tucks their feet and purses underneath their seats for the camera's best view, and the music fades up.
