We will see how Furne One takes his inspiration from sketch on paper to the final dramatic runway. We will watch as he and his team put together a show that is as original as his designs and the pressures and struggles to make sure it goes off without a hitch. But there is always some little detail to think about, some little moment of panic, and some glimmer of doubt that there will be enough time to pull it off successfully. As we watch the drama unfolding before our eyes, we will see Furne One's angst as he makes sure everything is as perfect as his designs. #InsideAmato
