Je conçois

Surprise, I'm alive! Many of you don't know but right now I'm attending a Styling seminar at FIT learning amazing insight in to the world I will soon be in. I'm have the best experience of my life at this seminar, meeting people from around the word literally (Brazil, the Netherlands, Australia, Mexico, Japan and more!), learning, getting tips from my great and very experienced professors and I'm doing hands on activities on top of all that, getting to listen to key speakers and we got the opportunity to visit the MAC Pro studios. I can not talk highly enough about it.

Our main activity for the three days is creating a real photo shoot and styling it in a group, my group was assigned to do an editorial photo shoot as if it was going to be in American Vogue (which for me was easy! the rest of my group had to do a little research). We have a real fashion photographer (which I'll talk more about after the class is over!) and real models. We pulled clothes today from a gorgeous couture store in New York City called Blanc de Chine, although it's not my personal style the clothes were amazing and the fabric used was to die for! It was so much fun pulling clothes knowing that they will be in a real photo shoot that I'm helping style. The clothes my group pulled were gorgeous but I don't want to ruin it, you'll have to wait to see the photos after!

I'm going to leave with you an editorial from the July 2010 American Vogue that really inspired my whole group in which direction to go in when pulling outfits for our shoot, also we really loved the make up and hair styling done in this shoot as well.
