Like the tides or the number of inches in a foot, fashion trends are always changing. Keep one step ahead of sartorial fluctuations with today's Groupon: for $79, you get one admission to both The Shoot Experience workshop and The Runway Experience workshop from Spotlight (a $225 value). The workshops will be held at Union Station on Sunday, October 2.
Spotlight unites celebrity expert hosts and the couture-curious for a one-day expo featuring workshops that showcase the latest advancements in beauty and fashion innovation. During The Shoot Experience, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., renowned fashion photographer Babak and Shear Genius contestant and North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) winner Faatemah Ampey bewitch onlookers with a behind-the-scenes look at the methods and techniques they will utilize in their upcoming NAHA entry shoot. The talented duo will disseminate insider tips on capturing a blue-ribbon pic, as well as hand down experiential know-how for fashioning individual submissions, including why such money savers as hiring horses for models may give away that you're a newbie.
Mondo Guerra, of Project Runway fame, and Yoanna House, the second winner of America's Next Top Model, explore the creation of runway design, backstage preparation, and the management of buyer expectations in The Runway Experience, held from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. In addition, Yoanna will share clandestine modeling lore about model preparation, the proper runway strut, and how to foster a strong connection between models, designers, and audience members using only a handful of straight pins.
