In this two-part hands-on workshop, James Vincent and Danessa Myricks will bring you behind the scenes of New York Fashion Week. With more than 15 years of Fashion Week experience, our artists have led fashion shows in international cities including NY, LA, Miami, Chicago, London, Milan and Berlin. New York Fashion Week is one of the most exciting events of the year for makeup professionals! Makeup artists get backstage access on what’s trending, who’s who in the industry, and the chance to build your network. Taking the lead and working Fashion Week will set you up to succeed in all areas of this industry.
James and Danessa will give you the insight into the design, production process, and the business side of being a Key Artist. The workshop portion will bring you through the act of assisting, preparing your kit, and what it means to interpret a key artist’s design, personality and instruction. You will be guided through the gritty reality of being a lead from collaborating with designers to consulting with your team. You will receive feedback throughout the entire process. You will walk away from this workshop with the tools you need to succeed as a fashion runway artist as well as an understanding of how to get these coveted and exclusive positions.
In the very exclusive second part of this workshop, selected artists will be chosen based on their performance to assist James and/or Danessa behind the scenes of New York Fashion Week and experience the wonderful chaos and creativity that happens backstage.
