September is an exciting month for everyone in the fashion and beauty industries. Our stylist BJ had the privilege of working with many amazing designers to showcase her talent on their models. This marked her seventh year at fashion week!
BJ filled us in:
What shows did you work on this year?
“I worked with Anna Francesca, Betsey Johnson, and several new designers from Europe. I also worked with other designers for their tests and trials.”
Who comes up with the looks for the models’ hair?
“We meet with designers and collaborate.”
What products did you use on the models?
What is the most exciting thing about fashion week?
“The whole experience! I have learned so much.”
Did you see any celebrities?
“I ran smack into Kim Catrall, literally! There are celebrities at every show, and to be honest you don’t notice as much after awhile.”
What trends (makeup, hair, or clothes) did you see that can be used in everyday life?
“Soft hair inspired by the 1940s, classic alligator pieces, and very bold lips.”
Who inspires you?
“The team I work with- they are some of the best in the world.”
What is your favorite show that you have worked on to date?
“G-Star- over and above one of the most put together shows in Fashion Week for hair, clothes, and stage.”
Do you have any advice for other stylists that are looking to get started at fashion week?
“Never give up on your dream. Anything you work hard enough at, and want bad enough, you will get!”
The following pictures were snapped by BJ as she was working backstage at the Anna Francesca show, which was inspired by “Wizard of Oz”.
