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, 18x 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

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

Hey Guys! Thanks for checking in! I hope you've been well :) Do I have quite the update for you all! I know, I know. My failure to regularly post on my old faithful blog has gotten out of control. I used to post at least monthly, however, for the past couple of years I can only find the time to write you all two or three times a year. I want to thank you all for the continued support and readership from the bottom of my heart. Even reviewing my blog stats to see that this blog still receives 50-70K+ reads a year, even with my minimal posting makes me so happy. This post will discuss various events, endeavors and adventures that I've been getting into for the last several months so stay tuned to peep my highlights.
