A Fashion Blast from the Past

DC Goodwill Fashion Show Photo Shoot 2008
This is from a video shoot we did where model Ashanti is playing the role of  Josephine Baker, American-born French dancer, singer, and actress during the 1920’s-1930’s.

Last week I shared with you a behind-the-scenes video of the 2010 DC Goodwill Fashion Show and today I am digging back even deeper in my video archive to share with you another look into what behind-the-scenes at one of my shows is like: fun, hard-working, and drama free!

It is hard to believe that this year marks six years since I styled, directed, and choreographed the 2008 Fashion of Goodwill show, which featured a Parisian theme and was held at the French Embassy in Washington, DC.  And what a night it was!  In the video, you can see a bit of the work that goes into a used wedding gown and what we needed to do to get it polished and ready to go on the runway so that it could be purchased afterwards in the pop-up retail shop.

Soon I will be hosting a Spring Trunk Show for Goodwill where every single piece will be hand-picked and selected by me and my team of stylists.  And all items will be sold for less than $100.  So save your money to shop then and help out a great mission!  Will keep you posted on the date.


The DC Goodwill Fashionista Gets a Makeover

DCGF before photoJust a few weeks are left until the 2013 Fashion of Goodwill Runway Show & Gala: The Art of Fashion at Artisphere in Rosslyn. Did you get your tickets yet?

As I continue to finalize the models, music, mood, and – of course – amazing fashions from our local Goodwill stores, I had to make sure to pay attention to one special person and that’s the DC Goodwill Fashionista!  She has agreed to let me give her a complete head-to-toe makeover and while I cannot yet reveal the outfits we chose for her, I can share with you a bit of her hair and makeup transformation at the hands of the team at Paul Mitchell The School at Tyson’s Corner under my creative vision for her.

Catch a glimpse of the makeover on the DC Goodwill Fashion Blog today and stay tuned for exclusive behind-the-scenes content in the weeks leading up to the big day on September 24th!  Looking forward to seeing you there!
