In a week where designers have had their share of shoe troubles, perhaps no one took it more in stride (not to mention with a sense of humor) than Brian Reyes. After about four of his models struggled with their shoes while on the catwalk Thursday morning, removing their shoes either mid-way down the runway or on their way back, Reyes sent his finale lineup of girls out sans shoes (yes, barefoot) and with smiles on their faces (no doubt relieved). Ladies and gentlemen, meet the fashion industry's Good Humor man.
