FIDM.....Project Beauty, FIDM, Anthousa Collection,

Check Out my latest entry on where I wrote about one of my latest assignments as a Mentor and producer of a Project Runway-esque challenge that took me to Dallas ,Texas last month. In short, I was approached by a home fragrance company called Anthousa Collection to get 6 Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising/FIDM students to create a "party dress" in 8 hours inspired by 6 of their home fragrance-bottles-with-sticks products. After the designs were finished, I then flew to Dallas Texas and presented the designs in a fashion show in front of over 100 Neiman Marcus beauty and cosmetics executives and buyers at their annual "Beauty Conclave" in the Four Seasons Resort and Spa. It was a hot, humid and thunderous 2 days in Dallas so I never really got to enjoy Dallas or the fabulous Four Seasons. Waiting 4 hours on a plane at the Dallas airport tarmac wasn't cute. It was raining so hard they were not allowing planes to take off so we had to sit there and wait(the plane had already left the gate!). But I did have loads of fun with the entire Anthousa family.

As you can briefly see here, the student designers really got their "creative fragrance and fashion juices" flowing! I was very proud of them. Click here to see more photos plus the entire article
