The Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show was last night and it was incredible! This was my second year curating a collection, styling the models, choosing the hair and make-up and watching the vision come alive on the runway. Last year was much more chaotic and stressful, but this year, was super organized and incredible. The Aveda students stepped up their game and made all the ladies look stunning. There was serious magic being created backstage. We all had so much fun!
My models totally nailed it on the runway. Mostly thanks to the incredible runway coach from Elite Model Management. He was helpful and very encouraging. They totally owned it.
The theme was loosely "boho", but I think it was much more "light weight summer hippie". My main goal was to allow everyone to step out of their comfort zones of style and try something new. Whether it was their hair, make-up, or outfit, I wanted it to feel like an experience. And it very much so was! I had different visions for everyone's hair based on their length, but mostly, I wanted messy, big, and wavy hair.
I was interviewed for a radio show on camera! It was terrifying, but the lady that interviewed me was amazingly awesome and put my nerves at ease. Hopefully I can find that and all the other posts on the event soon. I was so thrilled to be able to snap some photos of the models outside and document the outfits. A lot of my models are bloggers, so check out their blogs for full outfit posts (hopefully).
It was such an honor to be a part of an event for such a great company with a great mission. A huge thank you to the staff of Goodwill for putting on such a great event and for having me! Go out and support your local Goodwill.
I was also able to meet a lot of really great Clevelander's. Y'all should check out this post with some photos of the event.
