Neiman Marcus CUSP Fashion Show and Panel

Hello guys!

I hope you all are doing well! Thanks again for reading ;) Today, I am sharing thanks and gratitude once again to Neiman Marcus for allowing me the honor of attending as a VIP guest to their CUSP fashion show and panel in early April. And as usual, they were quite impressive from the VIP goodie bags we recieved to the amazing outfit compositions that were strutted down the runway.

As someone who works in fashion editorial/media , I am constantly engulfed in fashion related discussion and debate. There's always the questions of "what's hot and what's not," "Trends or classics?," and "who you should be wearing this season." Those key talking points were included in the panel, however, they seemed to delve a little deeper into the relevance and authority of fashion, specifically large houses such as themselves and large designers, as well as how you can utilize fashion's power to better the community. This was very nice in my opinion because it shows a different side to fashion, especially high fashion. It wasn't the shallow nature that many stereotype.

Clearly, in the images below, the ensembles were very well put together and catching to the eye. I appreciate the variety of styles as well as the variety of models. There was a very colorful wardrobe, as well as a colorful cast. And, that exemplifies the importance of diversity in fashion. As a woman of color, it creates a sense of relateability for me to see other minorities glamorously waltzing down the runway in million dollar attire ;)

All in all, I had a phenomenal time and hope to be invited to the next event! Please check out the links and images below to show support. Thank you

About Me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 20x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country a

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

The Search For "Mr. Right": 2 Years On Every App Taught Me This

  Over the last 2 years, I've been conducting what some could call a "social experiment." I have been single (by choice) for the better part of the last 2.5 years and had an epiphany a little over 2 years ago to give online dating services a shot! While it hasn't been the most miraculous experience, it has certainly been a valuable one! And, I strongly recommend that anyone who is looking to settle down with a life partner, give them a try! Maybe you don't need to sign up for almost every app known to man like I have LOL, but at least try the major ones. This blog is a detailed account of my findings as a young, sweet, successful woman with online dating.  For clarity, I've added the below chart for you to understand who I am and what I have to offer versus what I am seeking. This foundational knowledge is key to comprehending the results of my "experiment." I, as a 26 year old woman who is the CEO of a successful small business (
