By 3PM stage and backdrop designer Yennie Zhou was done with installations and rehearsals were set to begin.  One after the other runway director Duane Ram signaled each model when they needed to walk. Ram’s specialty is quick training models. If anyone knows how to choreograph a show he would.  Ram has been the man behind Sacramento Fashion Week and has choreographed every showcase since it began in 2006. This year he took on the task of up-scaling and infusing a Fashion Show to the production.  The event itself was managed and produced by Jax Butler.
