In case you missed the first two recaps, you can easily check them out as here and here. And, I promise you if you missed them you'll probably want to go back and read them. :)
On Friday, my third day in New York, I spent the day at the Foley + Corinna offices, getting some internship work done. I finally got to meet all of the people I have been working with, specifically Jessica, the online marketing director and my internship "advisor" if you will. (Big shout out to Jess for letting me crash at her place during NYFW!) She is incredibly fun to be around and I am so glad I got to officially meet her. I toured the offices, took a peek at the design studio, and even saw the entire fall collection of handbags in the show room. The fall bags are phenom by the way..you should get one!
Foley + Corinna ended up canceling their Fashion Week presentation, which was a bummer, BUT instead they scheduled their fall photo shoot to take place on Friday. Perfect, right?! I was so ecstatic when Jessica told me I'd be able to participate at the shoot, take my own shots, etc. It was literally a dream come true for me to be there, seeing the models, photographers, makeup artists, designers, and stylists in action at a studio.
Even though the entire collection is photographed, some pieces unfortunately won't make the final cut for the official fall line. Don't ask me how, because, to me, they were all gorgeous - I couldn't help but drool and lust over them, especially the sequined tunics, fur cardigans and vests, and cozy knits. Too bad I wasn't making millions so I could afford them all. Sigh.
I also got to chat with Amber of VenzEdits, who I met at IFB actually, at the shoot. She recently hosted a F+C giveaway, and came to snap photographs and even video. Her video is on her blog, and it's fabulous- you must watch it! (View it here.) I actually did the recording of the video, which includes her exclusive interview with Anna Corinna and Dana Foley.
And yes, I know you must be wondering what everything looks like, and wanting a sneak peak. Well, I've got it, just for you all! I was able to use one of the other cameras and take some shots of my own. And even got permission to post them early on my blog. Chicka chicka yeahhhh. I was kind of excited, can't you tell?
Sit back, relax, kick off your heels, put your credit cards away, and soak up your exclusive peak into the behind the scenes shoot!
