NYFW: Backstage at the Tracy Reese Fall 2014 Runway Show

I had the pleasure of covering the backstage action before the Tracy Reese Fall 2014 Runway show during New York Fashion Week and it was such a cool experience! These are some of the behind the scenes photos I snapped with make up by Mally Beauty, Hair by Ouidad and nails by Sally Hansen. The hair for the show was to look natural and textured almost  as if you didn’t style it at all. There were 5 different makeup looks with “Exuberant” being my favorite because I loved the gold metallic glitter flakes that were sprinkled on the cheeks. It looked so pretty! I also loved the “Melancholy” look with a watercolor effect on the eyes using soft pinks, blues,  peach, navy and beige. The Tracy Reese Fall 2014 collection draws inspiration from juxtapositions, playing the loud and ecstatic against the pragmatic and quietly complex to create classically modern silhouettes in commanding cloths. The collection takes an intimate look at self-expression, intermixing utility pieces with unique elements that provide pops of personality and spirit. ~ …

‘Goodwill Suits You’ Fashion Show 2013 Event Recap

The ‘Goodwill Suits You’ Fashion Show took place on October 1st at the 3rd ave Harlem Goodwill Store location to kick of Disability Employment Awareness Month. I participated as a stylist for 3 fabulous models:  Richard, Sheril and Kim! I met with each of them individually at Goodwill Stores to help pick out professional attire that they can walk the runway in and use for the workplace. Here are some pics of them working the runway during the show! I styled Richard in a dark grey suit with a paisley tie that will be perfect for when he goes on interviews in the communications/tech space. Richard was so much fun to work with and he definitely did his thing on the runway! Sheril was my super model because she is so tall and slim so I styled her in a black knee length pencil skirt and a fun printed blouse paired with a sweater to make it office/work appropriate since the blouse had no sleeves. Sheril worked it! The tweed jacket Kim is rocking was such …

VOZ SS14 NYFW Runway Show

Handmade Luxury Meets Social Change  I was thrilled to attend the VOZ SS14 runway show during fashion week because I really love the brands movement to empower indigenous artisans and their art forms through collaborative fashion design.  Voz’s garments are hand made and feature premium quality natural and ecological fibers, hand dyed and woven to celebrate ancient traditions. The SS14 collection was filled with beautiful woven pieces, cotton and silk dresses and really pretty sweaters that looked so soft and cozy for the transition from winter to spring. Here is a video I took of the final walk during the show. The VOZ designers work intimately with artisans in communities in Southern Chile to envision, prototype and finalize the fashion collections. In turn, these artisans receive name credit and earn royalties for their designs featured in the collection. Seeing the clothes go down the runway live allowed me to really see the beautiful craftsmanship and the exquisite details. The pieces really are beautiful and I am excited to see how this brand  grows and expands …

The event hosted by Phillip Bloch took place in Grand Central Station and featured celebs such as Deborah Cox, Stacy Keibler, Vivica Fox and the legendary Susan Lucci! They all took part in a fashion show along with pro models and NFL wives to showcase the new line of NFL gear. All participants were wearing NFL gear paired with  top designer pieces from the likes of Catherine Malandrino, Badgley Mischka, Keneth Cole, Betsy Johnson and so many more.  It was a great way to mix sports and designer fashion. My favorite looks were from Alice & Olivia, Kenneth Cole and Catherine Malandrino. They all involve leather and I love! I went for a sporty chic look and I got so many compliments on my outfit! Top is from Forever 21, Skirt and Heels are H&M. Are you excited that football season is back?! …
