Are you a Facemaker? Facemakers are those involved with turning someone into a supermodel. Supermodels work with stylists, photographers, journalists, bloggers and designers that each have a hand in molding them into who they become as a supermodel. I had the fun opportunity of participating in an interview with the cast of The Face and chat about Fashion Week & life in the industry in general. When discussing advice and tips, Modeltestant, Isabelle Bianchi said, “You need to go out and get it yourself so I think being a proactive model is a huge part.” She expressed how she and her fellow Modeltestants can’t expect to be successful in their industry by sitting back and hoping their agents would get them there. It’s imperative to put in the work and go out there and get it. I loved this! I completely agree and think it’s so true and can be applied to any industry. What makes me a Facemaker is my drive, passion and determination to succeed. I’ve attended NYFW the past few years but it’s always been in September for the Spring/Summer shows. Having a habit of making up excuses for myself, I’ve repeatedly dismissed the idea of going this time of year because of the weather, limited PTO/Vacation Time at work or that I can’t relate to the Fall/Winter shows living here in sunny LA. None of this is valid nor true. The weather is a minor obstacle. I have plenty of PTO time at work. I absolutely LOVE the Fall/Winter collections – layering is something I wish I could do MORE of here in LA! This season, I was determined not to skip F/W Fashion Week again and made that a reality by diligently working, planning and preparing for it. It was so inspiring for me to hear all the Modeltestants’ stories and feeling that passion for success behind all the Facemakers; host, Nigel Barker, Executive Producer and Supermodel Coach, Naomi Campbell, and Supermodel Coaches Anne V & Lydia Hearst.
