A look at the final walk spanning 40 looks, directly from Sherri McMullen sitting front row. “All of the things that my team and I have been dreaming up, we were able to execute on a level that you haven’t seen from us before.” - Christopher John Rogers.
"I vividly remember the mood the day of the show: everyone was so excited, saying 'Happy CJR Day'. Walking into the show, you could feel the positive energy and support everyone had for Christopher. After the room was filled with seven hundred and fifty people, the lights went dark and the show began. Everyone was in awe; look after look, everyone was 'oooh-ing' and 'aww-ng', rooting on one model after the other. Orange ruffles, purple taffeta, gold floral prints and green ball gowns went down the runway. At the end of the show, tears were pouring and Christopher came out to take his curtsy while I jumped up out of my seat to cheer him on. Backstage, was no different; hugs went all around as we could not contain our joy and excitement for the CJR team (Christopher, David, Alex, and Christina). Happy CJR Day."
- Sherri McMullen
