Last Monday, February 24th I participated in a fashion show for the dress line Saborama. Me and my incredible coworkers put out 24 models with beautiful hair and makeup. We were asked to use inspiration from periods in history such as the 1960's depicted on the hit show Mad Men and also looks from the 1920's featured in The Great Gatsby. This was a challenge being the stark difference in these two styles however the result really worked. Our makeup artists created gorgeously intense sexy eyes with bold berry lips that popped. On the style team, we set the hair in vintage patterns and techniques in order to give the hair an authentic feel while we pinned and placed the hair in a more modern vibe. We impressively finished ahead of schedule which for runway work is rarely achieved. I am so honored to work with the team I do. We had a lot of fun on this job and the finished result really made me proud.
The fashion show took place at a rooftop lounge, Skylark. The venue was classy overlooking Time Square surrounded by not only the Crysler building but also the Empire State Building making the view breathtaking. The bartenders were making signature drinks using Four Roses Bourbon.
A big congrats to Nancy, the designer for Saborama for a job well done. These dresses are even better in person when you see them move and come to life. Pictures do not do then justice so here is a link to a video of her with a few of the models. The model in the black and gold dress was one I did!
