I can't tell you how excited I am to post this blog!!! I am really excited about landing a spot in the Fusion Fashion Show 2011 as a model. I was really worried that I wasn't going to get it, and I saw that e-mail for it, and I jumped for joy like no one's buisness!! I was first told about the Fusion Fashion Show through my boyfriend, and decided to go out for it. The more I learned about the show the more excited I got.
When I went to the casting the line was very long. I was very nervous, but needed to put my game face on. I realized that this opportunity is a great thing to be a part of. I wanted to present, and give my very best. For at the end of the day least you know you tried your best.
I am really appreciative, and feel honored for this opportunity, it's a great thing to be a part of this. For those of you who don't know what this fashion show is it's a battle where men's and women's designers from FIT(Fashion Institute of Technology) and Parson's verse each other. They are considered to be the some of the most best fashion schools in America and world. Some big names that have come out of the two schools would be Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Amsale Aberra, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford to name a few of the greats.
The fashion show is a great way to push the art of designing ideas, and challenge the best and brightest talent of new designers. This will show how the new talent out there pushes the envelope. Also the fashion show is highly supported by the fashion community in New York City. Many notable fashion people in the industry show to cover the show, and be judges for the show to determine which are the best ideas. Some of the judges are Damien Nunes fashion editor of GQ, MaryKate Steinmiller from Teen Vogue, Austin Scarlett of Project Runway fame, Atoosa Rubenstein of Seventeen Magazine & BIG MOMMA PRODUCTIONS, INC., Richie Rich of Heatherette, Sarah Hartshorne of America's Next Top Model, Nolé Marin of America's Next Top Model & ELLE Magazine, Zang Toi, Cynthia Rowley, Robert Verdi, and so much more!!
I look forward to the days I go out on the runway, and give it my absolute soul and heart and just live in that moment. I feel clothes are a moment we create through time. They express who we are at the current time and state of being. I want to bring my best foot forward to the table. I will just relax but within a plan still in mind, and just let the fashion flow within in me. The best results are the ones when we least expect them. I am meeting with my designer for some fittings tomorrow! Can't wait! And sorry can't say anything about the designs until the big show is over! Wish me luck!
This is when I met Austin Scarlett of Project Runway! Yes I look a mess, because I was dancing at the party like a maniac! lol
