NYC was extra frenzied during Fashion Week. Designers of all kinds were constantly out doing last minute preps for their collections. I was out sourcing fabrics and met a talented designer fresh out of this hectic world.  Natasha Morgan, an Eye-wear designer in NYC.  Just look at her, the hardware she sported was insane (in an amazing way of course). How can you not wonder what she does, why she got mad steeze, and rocked her eye-wear so hard. She was about to debut her eye-wear for Fashion Week. The clock was ticking  and it lead her to stumble out of her apartment, do last minute errands, fabric pulling, and all that! Thanks to the “exchanging of compliments”, we broke the ice and I just had to snap pic /blog about her. 
A pic of an eye-wear designer, caught in the middle of crazed NYFW, running the city like it’s no one’s business, and just getting IT done.

Is this seriously a Hotel Commercial?…i like it

Is this seriously a Hotel Commercial?…i like it

I wish I started logging in my experiences at BCBG last week. All I know is that, I came at the right time…well, so they say. I came right when they were all prepping for New York Fashion Week. 
I jumped around with helping out the many different lines. My favorite was prepping for the "Herve Leger" line. Being able to take pictures, label and put each look together with my own hands was so amazing. The designer and her team had me document each of the garments and put them in order, from 1 to 32. That’s right, 32 looks will be going down the Runway in New York this coming weekend. Each garment was so intricate with bandages, as they played off the concept of Shoe Laces. Strips and Straps completed the whole garment, it’s like they didn’t even use whole fabric. Being a fashion designer, I couldn’t help but examine the construction of each creation. A model came in and they took a picture of her wearing each look. The pictures were printed asap and a co-worker and I had to put them on their own sheets, indicating what look is what. The team gathered together, weary and stressed, as they quickly crossed out what shoes to switch, what accessories to take out… They must have gone through a million post its with different notes. 5 o’clock came out of no where and they scrambled with last minute preps, pulling of extra fabric in case they need to change out a sleeve or cuff. I didn’t realize, this all had to be done and packed by that night. Then they were off to New York. 

…what a rush…

This picture I took is of a couple of the packed garments ready to be sent to New York for Fashion Week. If I could, I would take pictures of the garments but, that’s their secret! sorry. Check out the "Herve Leger” line for fall 2010 after this weekends runway shows. View high resolution
