Before Models Get Into Their Swimsuits...

What comes to mind when one mentions fashion shows showcasing swimwear?

Good-looking models? Runway-ready bikinis?

But there's a lot more that happens.

Like the chaos backstage. 

And portable loos. 

Cramped spaces within which hair and make-up artistes crowd around models. 

Facial stations.

Selfie spots. 

Fittings.

Rehearsals.

And, finally, smiling faces that show no hint of tiredness.
