The store is more narrow than wide, yet it was still very spacious and was great for having a runway show. The runway didn't need to be elevated. I had four lights set up, one light in each corner of the room, so there was a nice lighting effect on the models and the clothes shown on the runway. There were flower petals placed on the side of the runway and it looked nice and brought the feeling of Spring. It was a chic event and was well attended, including a visit from a princess.
