Do you know why they call it the catwalk: The reason this platform is called the catwalk is because models need to walk very carefully on it, like a cat. Cats tread lightly, lithely and smoothly, without taking up too much space. Since the model is expected to walk on the platform in such a manner, the platform came to be called a ‘catwalk’. In some places, the catwalk also refers to the way a model walks.
Before the model appears on the catwalk are the hours they spend behind the catwalk. Hours of waiting, getting their hair done, makeup and more waiting for the 30 second of glamour, when appear to do their cat like walk up and down the runway. As a photographer these hours before the big moment are my favorite moments. Here you see these moments before the Denver Fashion Weekend – Spring 2016
