Kelly Love--(L to R) Nick Verreos, Kelly Clarkson and "Drybar" Co-founder Alli Webb--The Kelly Clarkson Show, Universal Studios

A couple of months ago, I had the FABULOUS PLEASURE of being on one of my favorite TV talk shows: "The Kelly Clarkson Show"!! I was invited on the show to help make a young girl's Birthday Dreams come true...and style her for a Disney "Frozen 2" Dream Birthday Party! Recently, I was part of a great fashion collaboration involving Disney and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM--the college of which I am the Fashion Design Co-Chair...

Nick Verreos and Alli Webb--The Kelly Clarkson Show, Universal Studios

For this very special "Kelly Clarkson Show" I was invited to help be part of the "Glam Squad" to style a Birthday Gal--and her friends, following a "Disney's Frozen 2" theme. The fabulous Alli Webb, Co-Founder of Drybar was the hair QUEEN, offering her hairstyle guru marvelousness to make the Birthday Gal and Guest the most "Frozen 2" AMAZING that they could be.

Here are my Behind-the-Scenes Photos from the shoot:

On Part 4 of my BLOG on the DISNEY X FIDM: FROZEN II Collaboration, it's time for the WINDOW UNVEILING!!!! If you have been following my BLOG here, I have been posting all the behind-the-scenes and backstory on the recent design collaboration between Disney and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM for the Blu-ray release of "Frozen II". After all the pre-research, filming of our inspiration, and several; weeks of designing the fab garments to pay homage to the four Elements (Water, Wind, Fire, and Earth) of "Frozen II"--as well as "Elsa"...it was time to showcase the designs in a one-of-a-kind window/store display at the Disney Store in Westfield Century City!

As Co-Chairs of the FIDM Fashion Design Department, David and I created a gown inspired by Elsa from "Frozen" and "Frozen II" for this unique design collaboration, but we also enlisted the expertise of two graduates from our Advanced Fashion Design/DEBUT Program, designers Paul Hernandez and Tomy Huang to design and create two designs each based on the "Luxury Streetwear" vibe. Below are photos from the fabulous photoshoot of their designs, which were inspired by the "Elements" featured in the "Frozen II" film of Earth, Fire, Water, and Wind...Check it out:
