As I was observing through all the pretty dresses and make up, I couldn’t help but notice a couple of male models standing along the narrow hallway, waiting for them to showcase Sam Mackenzie’s line for Vancouver Fashion Week. Might as well interview them, right? (And I got to know them pretty well too!)
