Glamsquad LA at I'm Feeling Fabulous Seminar

" Unleash & Enhance the DIVA In You", held on SUNDAY MARCH 21, 2010  at the World Famous Aroma Center off Wilshire was a great success.
I went to represent Glamsquad LA. A Los Angeles based company specializing in hair, makeup, models, wardrobe & styling. The founder of Glamsquad, Jaszmayne did my hair and we were off... 
There were some great speakers there, but my fave was Crystal Wright. She is the author of 30 Days at 100 Percent... She speaks about changing your life 30 days at a time by operating at 100%. It was very inspirational.

Here are some pics from an impromptu photo shoot we did at the event: 
 I made the 2 dresses and the tutus. The chocolate model is my mentee Tiohn, she is workin' the "Barbie Dress"!

Fitting with Bride to Be!

Here are a few pics from a fitting I did last week with a new Bride-to-be. I went to her L.A. apartment so she wouldn't have to drive out to me... Yes, I spoil my brides... They deserve it... The dress fit her body perfectly. It was a little long, so I just have to shorten it, which I will probably do after she buys new shoes. The ones she planned on wearing were killing her feet by the end of the fitting. Not a good sign. I still have to sew the "bling" onto the dress, it's just pinned for now. I was so happy with how great she looked, I almost cried! I love my job...

LA Fashion Week's The Designer and The Muse

I was soooo excited to be invited to participate in the LA Fashion Week event The Designer and the Muse. I (along with my muse) walked the red carpet with some of LA's top designers. Many who I looked up to while I was still in school at FIDM back in 2000. I made my dress along with my Muse's dress. My muse, R&B/Pop singer Ultrami, wore a dress inspired by a Barbie dress I had whipped up one day in the studio. My niece left this naked barbie at my studio and I just decided she needed clothes. After Ultrami came into the studio to work with my husband (he is a songwriter/producer) she saw the Barbie and just fell in love with the design. She said she couldn't put it down. She was holding the Barbie while singing.
Here is a pic of the Barbie dress I made that I remade for Ultrami for The Designer and The Muse event.

Me schmoozing with Nick Verreos of Project Runway's Season 2.
He's fun!

 A fun fact:
I was holding her dress here @ the back because I barely finished our dresses in time for the red carpet & didn't have time to put hook n eyes on the dresses....

Another fun fact:
Ultrami had makeup all over her body so her skin would look flawless, which it does... However, right before we were to go in front of the press, makeup got on the top part of the dress! I almost spazzed out, but we got most of it out in the bathroom & it didn't show up in photos at all.
