Chicago Fashion Week 2018

Hi guys!

I hope you all are doing quite well! I know it has been a while but I'm coming at you guys with some LONG overdue blog posts from my experiences that I was blessed with this year. The first is my experience at Chicago Fashion Week, hosted by Fashion Bar Chicago. As you saw last year, they really know how to put on a great show! This year, I was just as wowed. A  HUGE thank you to Caitlin Nero, PR, and Tony Long, the CEO, for allowing me to attend.

The designs were out of this world, literally, and I can not express their beauty in words. Themes of purity and softness like that of a dove being juxtaposed with dashing brash colors and spikes, embellishment and edge. One gown was mermaid cut in a crimson red fabric with feathered horns on the headpiece and a mesh train a mile long. Another was made of sheer white fabric with gatherings made to look like muted roses and flowy sleeves draping the ground as if it was a true queen wearing it. It was a sight to see. It is so heartwarming to know that such talented designers exist in Chicago to where they can execute such a difficult task so seamlessly. No pun intended! Below I captured some of my favorites.

To see more work from these jaw dropping Chicago designers, check out the Chicago Fashion Week Instagram page as well as Fashion Bar Chicago's Instagram page!

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 (
