There is always a younger girl waiting to step into your stilettos! Before there was Kate, Naomi, and Claudia, there was Robyn Peterson – über model! Direct from critically acclaimed runs in London and the Edinburgh Festival, Catwalk Confidential tells her story, in a one-woman Miami premiere production.
Written by and starring Robyn Peterson, Catwalk Confidential is part fairy-tale, part memoir, and part romance. Funny, cautionary and at times moving, the show tells the story of 16- year-old Robyn, fresh from Miami, who gets caught up in the world of high fashion on the boulevards of Paris in the early 1970s.
Grand couturier houses were in free fall, drugs were on the table and riots were in the streets. Robyn became one of the top models of the period, working with photographers such as Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin and designers Karl Lagerfeld, and Yves Saint Laurent . Her face appeared on the covers of Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire. Amidst this whirlwind life of glamour, sex and drugs, Robyn discovers there is one thing to fear above all else: “AGE”!
