Backstage at IADT's Imagine Fashion Show (pictures)

I hadn't seen daylight since about 1 p.m., yesterday. From then on I was the backstage photographer for the International Academy of Design and Technology's annual student fashion show.

This year's fashion show was titled Imagine, at the A La Carte Pavilion in Tampa.  I hardly saw the runway, instead I was in the back hallway, lined with rows of costumes, ranging from sea creatures, to bikini brides, and goth couture.  At any moment, depending on which way I turned the atmosphere could be chill, frantic or anywhere in between.
