{Backstage} at Giulietta

March 10th, 2013 § 4 comments § permalink

One of my favorite shows during New York Fashion Week was {without a doubt} Giulietta New York. The line, designed by Sofia Sizzi, is currently a finalist for the CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund award.  Sizzi’s designs are heavily influenced by the 1960′s, and this season the collection was a nod to the late sixties and it’s style icons like Jane Birkin. I had the opportunity to interview the make-up team backstage as they made-up the models, and then enjoyed the show from the front row. It was an amazing afternoon, and I’m happy to share a glimpse of it with you today.

{Backstage} at Tibi

February 17th, 2013 § 1 comment § permalink

After seeing Christian Siriano, I made my way through the snow-covered streets of New York to reach Pier 59, where Tibi would be holding their A/W 13 fashion show.  Here are a few shots of my incredible experience there…

The make-up and hair was simple and striking, and a perfect compliment to the beautifully tailored sportswear that Tibi presented.  All in all, a truly wonderful presentation.


Do you remember that I first saw a Tibi fashion show one year ago exactly, when a new friend with the right connections took me to Lincoln Center for the very first time?

And here I was, one year and three fashion seasons later, with the incredible opportunity to go backstage and document a Tibi show from behind the scenes. What a blessing!!

It truly goes to show that with dedication, hard work, and great friends – anything is possible. It may sound cliche, but dreams do come true.

Fashion week may be over – but I know my New York adventure is just beginning.

Thank you for being there for the ride loves – I couldn’t do it without you.

{Backstage} at Christian Siriano

February 12th, 2013 § 7 comments § permalink

On Saturday afternoon I had the incredible opportunity to attend Christian Siriano’s A/W13 fashion show in Chelsea, where I headed backstage to snap photos of the brilliant make-up and hair artists performing their magic.

Antoinette Beenders, Aveda’s Global Creative Director, swept models hair into intricate braided updos, while make-up artist Polly Osmond created a dramatic eye and smoldering look on their faces.

The result was a striking look that complimented Christian’s strong, beautiful Russian influenced designs.  Christian said he imagined the girl wearing this collection is headed to the Russian opera, and I can see her perfectly: stepping out of a carriage and gingerly placing her heel in the snow.

The show itself was nothing less than spectacular, and it absolutely took my breath away.  Each time a new look came out, the entire audience seemed to gasp altogether. We were spellbound.

Cheers to you Christian, for an amazing performance and wonderful 10th season!

Thank you so much to Nicole – who made this afternoon possible for me – it was a dream come true.

The {IFB} Conference

February 8th, 2013 § 6 comments § permalink

This was the third season in a row I’ve attended the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference in New York City and, like always, I had an incredible time.  There’s just nothing like filling a room with hundreds of fashionable, cool girls and guys who are funny and sweet and want to talk about things like “peplum” and “SEO” and “outfit photos” for hours on end.  It’s just so awesome.  Here’s a little view into my amazing experience this week.

{My new friends: my name sister Alex and dreamboat Tyson Beckford!}

{I spent the day with the gorgeous Erin of Accidentally Stylish. She was my blogger wing-woman and after a long Twitter courtship I’m so glad we’re now true, dear friends!}

{bareMinerals gave us all amazing make-overs, and I was thrilled with the results. We had so much fun at this booth – thank you to the whole bareMinerals team for being so fantastic!}

{Fashionable, gorgeous girls were abundant – including these cute sweater twins!}

{And this total knock-out, who was as sweet as she was stunning!}

{The many panels were funny, informative and engaging!}

{And I got to run around in sequins all day – which made me very, very happy.}


Thank you to Jennine, Taylor and the entire IFB crew for yet another amazing opportunity to meet wonderful girls, learn a ton, and have an absolute blast!  Looking forward to September already!
