While some choose the runway to showcase their wares, others prefer the presentation. Having been to my fair share of presentations I can say they offer many benefits to bloggers. First it's a chance to get up close and personal with the clothing. You get to see details you might miss on the runway, and rather than use someone else photos you can take your own pics of the collection. Plus the models are very nice and will pose for you. Yes it can be a bit crowded with everyone clamoring for pics, but depending on the designer you may be able to grab a quick Q&A (priceless!). And there's not seat hierarchy because there's no seats! Everyone gets the same view.

So what's my verdict? While I love a good runway show, there's something about a presentation. I feel like it gives fashion more heart. It's a chance to see designers who may not be big names yet, these are the people breathing life back into fashion. It's simple and chic, believe me when I say you will be seeing more of them in the upcoming seasons.
