Emphatics: The behind the scenes look

I was recently lucky enough to have been asked to be a part of a special project showcasing the most amazing clothing collection featuring some major designers. The shoot was inspired by the 80’s woman. With diva attitude that only Iman could carry and shoulder pads up to your ears how could you not love the 80’s? The woman of the 80’s had strength (you could see it in her power suits) style, and plenty of character. We were lucky enough to embody these women today and all the while doing so while wearing some of the most fabulous pieces of runway-ready clothing.

If names such as McQueen or Galliano means anything to you, or maybe you are just dying to revisit the  awesomeness that was the 80’s, than I highly recommend catching a glimpse of this glamour collection. The Emphatics installation will soon be featured in the Phoenix Art Museum so watch out for updates!

A day in ETRO

9:00 A.M. and my Uber driver calls to let me know he’s outside waiting. With only my ASU backpack and vintage Dooney & Bourke in tow, I prefer to travel light, I make my way to the airport to catch my morning flight to Vegas. Why Vegas you ask? Well today I escape my 9 to 5 job today to walk in an ETRO show with Saks Fifth Avenue!

It’s not everyday I get to be a real model, you know the ones that actually jet set and make runway and photoshoots a full-time gig, so when I get the opportunity I pounce! Today I  share my behind-the-scenes moments of what life is like as a model on the go and walking for ETRO and Saks.
