I think everyone, at some point in their lives has a dream of either working New York Fashion Week (NYFW) or attending. Celebrity makeup artist, James Vincent, along with the dreamy Jon Hennessey are hosting a NYFW Exclusive workshop, ‘Work the Runway: Exclusive Hands-on Workshop’.
The workshop will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at The Metropolitan Pavillion in New York City from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. I’ve attended a Jon Hennessey workshop before, and he is very informative! If you have $345 to invest in your career, and would like the opportunity to assist during NYFW, then this workshop is for you!
About the ‘Work the Runway: Exclusive Hands-on Workshop’
James and special guest will give you insight into the design and production process as well as the art and business side of being a Key Artist. In the first workshop portion, you will see behind the scenes from every side. James and guest will bring you through the act of assisting and understanding what you need in your kit, how to prepare yourself for the position, and what it means to interpret a key artist’s design, personality and instruction. They will also show you the ins and outs of leading a show and guide you through the gritty reality of being a lead from collaborating with designers to consulting with your team and communicating your ideas and inspiration. You will receive feedback throughout the process from application to the final view on the catwalk. 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 third part of this workshop, selected artists will have an opportunity to assist James and The Makeup Show artists behind the scenes of New York Fashion Week and experience the wonderful chaos and creativity that happens backstage. This is a great way to expand your resume and reach new levels of experience.
