Bright Lights, Big City

Grand Rapids Fashion Designer

From September 6 through September 13, New York City was a buzz of activity as New York Fashion Week kicked off the global calendar of Fashion Weeks. And, what better way to kick off Fashion Week with style than to have one night completely dedicated to the love of fashion?

This September was the third time I was able to work at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Each time I visit this city, I come back home with new adventures and stories. This year I was fortunate enough to meet and spend time with Monika Chiang and Lancôme National Makeup Artist Darais at Monika’s Soho boutique. I also was blessed to have the opportunity to sew some amazing dresses at Giulietta that were part of her 2013 Spring Collection show. Working backstage as a dresser at the Mark McNairy fashion show was an exciting and unique experience as well.

However, after five days of constant subway jumping, insane heat waves, and a whirlwind of, quite literally, running around the island of Manhattan, it is good to be home.
