Before heading off to PROJECT LAS VEGAS, the TRAffIK Fashion Girls took a look at their current beauty obsessions and must-haves and are sharing them with you. See below for what get’s them glowing, keeps them moisturized, hydrates them, and what tunes they can’t get out of their heads (because we all need good music to get ready to)
Keep checking back for more from BB and Heather the TRAffIK Fashion Girls and their column REAL FASHION FOR REAL PEOPLE and don’t forget to follow them on Twitter at http://twitter.com/fashiongirls513
Here’s some of what to expect: How-to’s – BB and Heather will show you exactly how to wear some of the hottest new trends as well as accessories you may already own in great new ways, Insider Info from the events that BB and Heather attend or are involved with, like Project Las Vegas (Feb.16-18), Q &A’s with Fashion Industry Insiders – So that you can continue to learn about the inner workings of the Fashion Industry. They will also tackle any questions that you may have, and Special Features on What to Wear and Where.
Let’s face it. We could all use a little help in the fashion department, whether it be a total make-over, finding the right styles for our body types, or even just help discovering the latest fashion by the next hot designers. Lucky for us the Brand Equity Showroom Fashion Agents Brandy Bustamante (“BB”) and Heather Ellis are here to help!
Together they will show you how to get in touch with your inner TRAffIK Stopping Fashionista!
We now invite you to learn a little more about both BB and Heather and discover why their motto is: “Fashion is our ART…Make Fashion Your ART.”
“Karl Lagerfeild may be a bit risqué with his opinions of fashion but he was right when he said, “Fashion is about dreams and illusions.” Fashion for me is collages that can be made up from the pages of magazines, artwork, or a scene from an old movie. I didn’t take the traditional path of attending a school geared towards Fashion to get into this industry, but several years ago the doors to this plethora of a career opened unexpectedly placing me in this wonderful world of designers and agents. Growing up, I never would have imagined that life would organically place me in this instrumental role within the Fashion Industry, an industry that I don’t see myself stepping out of for a long while.
There are so many big fashion-related dreams out there and you don’t necessarily need Fashion 101 from a fancy fashion school to make them come true. I am in no way shape or form bashing what a fashion institute offers, rather sharing career advice from one who has and continues to invest time to gain working knowledge and experience in this business of Fashion.
As I continue to piece together my career collage, I will lace you in sharing my experiences. Heather and I will bring you the imaginative and amazing people we may meet, the bright lights of colorful photo shoots we style, designers with innovative ideas, the action of runway shows and most importantly the real life and behind the scenes of a fashion agent – the sales, the grind and the showroom. Our main goal is to not only give career advice but to bring the inside of fashion OUT. We want to share the trends, the beauty secrets and the REAL FASHION WITH REAL PEOPLE. So whether it be a local fashionista we want to acknowledge for being smashing, how to wear a seemingly odd accessory, or just sharing our own beauty picks from our purse – we will be digging up new haute trends and recreating the “how to’s” for the old trends.
About Heather by Heather
The thing that really inspired me to want to co-create this column with BB is that I have a real desire to help people find themselves, and find freedom, in Fashion. To me it’s like art, it’s simply a matter of personal taste. Sure there are trends, and some aspects of Fashion may not work for every body type– but if you like it, you can make it yours. Fashion is everyone. You just have to know where to look and sometimes, how and when to take some risks.
This idea inspires me more than anything because I love to see people being creative with Fashion. I truly look at Fashion as an art form. Sometimes I paint myself with bright colors and sometimes I feel that black says it all. Either way I’m always expressing myself creatively through fashion– and that’s what BB and I would like to share with you. Sometimes it will be something exciting like a fashion show or a brand new line we just found. Sometimes we might offer advice about how to get the most out of your closet for the next six months while spending very little on new clothes (we know times are tough!). We might blog about a new Fashion School we find….or job opportunities in fashion that require no school at all (they do exist!).
We want to hear from you too– Maybe you know of a new line we haven’t found yet (maybe your own!) – tell us about it! We are constantly on the hunt for REAL FASHION FOR REAL PEOPLE and we are committed to sharing it with YOU!
