On January 3rd I was a part of an amazing project! A lovely duo of gals that I went to High School with put on a fashion show. I was an extra help back stage with make up, hair, and helping the models collaborate their outfits to get ready to walk down. It was an amazing experience. I loved being a part of this wonderful production. The concept was more visual then focusing on their clothing pieces. The models all wore white outfits from head to toe. Big black construction paper was hung up on the sides of the runway with a tarp on the floor. They back stage help was hiding behind the construction paper with the paint in their hands. Each person having about twenty cups filled with paint, pouring a cup over the construction paper each time a model would walk past them. As more and more models kept walking down, the runway got slippery. This was something I will never forget! Check out the video below!
I got to meet an amazing inspiration of a fashion designer, Miranda K Levy. She was a contestant on Season 12 of Project Runway. She is from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and continues her dream and passion for fashion. I talked to her about tips and tricks on schooling and little things to recollect about the fashion industry. It was an amazing experience to meet her. She was so lovely, helping get into depth about what to know. I learned so much from this first time fashion show. It's an exciting first beginning to my passion and helped me inspire more to learn!
The Blank Canvas
I am so thankful for all these wonderful opportunities I have up bringing on this New Year! I am starting to push myself to be a part of many wonderful projects. A week before the New Year I was part of "The Blank Canvas". It was more of a visual, thoughts project. My friends, Paul Theodoroff and Cavan Faucett asked me to be a part of a film they aspired to create. Paul Theodoroff is a cinematographer and Cavan Faucett was the co-director. I was so excited to be a part of this production because it sounded amazing and so fun to accomplish. The space where we shot the film was on the 3rd floor of a huge warehouse. It was very vintage and rustic looking. First of all, I felt like I was in an Indiana Jones movie or something. It was so cool to just walk around in. The film resembles the new beginning 2014 has to offer. The concept is magnificent and I give props to this wonderful short film. Cheers to the New Year - Looking forward for what it all has to offer.
Unfortunately the actual video was taken off of Paul's page... But here is a behind the scenes look at 'The Blank Canvas'
