Fashion Week Update

Greetings loyal readers! It's been a busy couple of weeks. No the house hasn't sold yet but I hear it's showing really well. The activity has all been here in New York. It is really hard for new models to book shows in New York, as the designers generally prefer to use models they are familiar with. This year it was even harder for the male models because there were less menswear shows and the shows were using fewer models. Quite a few of my friends came up empty-handed this week, but I was fortunate enough to book a show! The show was a presentation, so I'll have to hold onto my runway walk for next season. The designer was Antonio Azzuolo and the show was on Sunday in the West Village. Here are a couple photos:
Pretty cool, huh? The day before I did some showroom work for 3.1 Philip Lim, which basically means I tried on every look for their runway show so they could take photos of how they wanted the clothes to look. The show was today and it was really interesting to look at the photos and think that I wore all of the clothes four days prior!

Before the next season rolls around, my agency wants me to develop a bit more and get some more exposure. They want to make sure that I'm not a stranger when the shows are casting in Milan and Paris. They are thinking the best way to do this would be for me to travel and book some magazine editorials... in EUROPE!!! So, now it sounds like they are going to look for an agency to represent me in Milan or maybe Paris. Not sure of anything yet, but I'll keep ya posted.

...somebody buy the house already. With that said, that's all for me.

Oh how exciting! The photos are great! Such a handsome young man! I will keep my fingers crossed that the house sells quickly!

Great photos! I thought about you this week when a friend of a friend was in NYC and told us she was "surrounded by skinny people for Fashion Week." =) Glad to hear things are going well for you. And Europe--how exciting! Now if the house would just sell....

Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog. I didn't realize you were still posting. Good! Happy to see you are doing well in the new profession.

Apologies for not visiting sooner but I just found your blog through a comment you left on a previous post of ours. What an exciting life you are having at such a young age! Congrats to you on all of your successes. I do hope your house does not sit on the market as long as others have. Not that the condition of ours or yours compares but our houe was on the market for 15 years before we got suckered into buying (I mean fell in love with) her.

Looking forward to reading your older posts!
