Meanwhile in Zagreb Pt I

I think one of the most memorable moments during these past adventures was our journey from La Coruña to Zagreb. What should normally be a flight long enough to nap or flip through a few pages of Vouge Español, became an eighteen-hour voyage. 

We arrived in Zagreb in the wee hours of the morning tired, cranky, and in desperate need of bubble bath. However, I was stoked because I would be meeting up with my friend and client, as she was coming from a fashion show hosted by J-Wind in Bucharest. I scribbled a quick email with my hotel room number and something about bear-hugging her when we finally met up, and passed out. 

The next morning, well afternoon, I picked up a ringing phone to hear my friend's voice blurt out her room number. I bounced out of bed so quickly, my husband thought I must have forgotten my passport on the plane or something. I waltzed down the hall of the 5-star hotel as if I weren't wearing my pajamas, and banged the door of room 418. 

When the door opened we shrieked in delight, commenced the catching-up period, and exchanged tales of our adventures over the past month. Between the two of us we had bounced between 7 countries in just a few weeks. We were able to meet up in Zagreb because she was presenting her collection alongside designers such as Kunitar and 8E88, in a fashion show at the opening of the Creative Dimension Zagreb inspired by Toyota.

Check out some of the footage I captured. The show was a success and a huge shout out to our friends at J-Wind for making it all come together. Hip Hip! Hooooray!
