Fashion Events

Most people do not know the evolution of fashion week in New York just started only in 1993, yes only 20 years ago!  So how did fashion week become so popular?  Because fashion is a product of modern age and when fashion week moved to one of the biggest city, in a place called; Bryant Park “New York Fashion Week” was Born. Fashion week started in Europe back in 1953 and evolved to be one of the biggest events in history. Fashion week grosses over 865 Million per year direct visitor spending in New York City alone.  The question now is, how to make this a part of the Stamford Connecticut history? As Connecticut embrace on creating a place for Fashion Week in Stamford Connecticut and the challenges piling on.

The average designers around the world can spend up $500,000 dollars to showcase their clothing at fashion week.

When one looks around and think of all the Designers, Models, Stylist, Make-up artists, Volunteers and etc., to put such an event on, it makes you think is this a challenge one should really take on? As Connecticut Fashion Week moves forward we will highlight a list of things to do during the process and comment on the do's, don'ts and mistakes.

  1. Create a Plan (Not having a plan for any event will turn into a disaster)
  2. Find a committed staff and communicate the mission/vision Clearly.
  3. Must Find committed Designers (Designers has to pay for their showcase at every fashion week around the world unless sponsored by a company).
    1. Connecticut Fashion Week allowed Designers to be apart of the showcase by committing to selling tickets. Pro: Designer are happy for this opportunity given they are committed. Con's: if a designer does not pays an entry fee they cannot afford to lose, they don't take it seriously and has 50/50 a chance to drop out last minute, This can bring havoc once heavy promotions is in effect.
  4. Integrate with Social Media and Create Surveys to find out what the attendees is looking for in fashion event showcase. (Help success rates)
  5. Build a proper network and community to increase the chances of having a successful event. ( Have your preferred go to models, stylist, Make-up artist, hair stylist and volunteer on hand).
  6. It's never too early to start promoting
    1. (Social Media promotions is not the answer, it may help but it not the answer.) Look to use places like Groupon, TV, Radio, Flyers, Newsletter, Adwords, and partnership with local businesses. You can also attend other events prior to your event to get the word out as well.
  7. Think outside the box.
    1. If your market your event(s) to the people you know only, the likelihood of it begin successful, is not likely. Not because someone knows you that means they will show-up. People only wants to commits when they see the mass committed. Build a story to get people you don't know involve. People forgets, so keep them up to date with friendly reminders.  "Motivation" is essential.
    2. Offer incentives with ticket sales. Connecticut Fashion Week offers each person who purchase a regular price ticket an opportunity to win a bridal gown (Women) or custom made creation (Men) for each ticket they purchase.
  8. Look to the best for guidance.
    1. Connecticut Fashion week also accept assistance in order to cultivate the best results. (Research how other events similar to what you're doing become successful)
  9. Don't wait for the last minute to get sponsorships or donations for your event.
  10. Always have a "To Do" Checklist.

Krista White - How she made it as a model

Krista White, the American fashion model, was born December 19, 1984 in Pine, Bluff, Arkansas. Before her joining to ANTM she worked as a retail manager. They called her the winner of cycle 14 of America’s next top model. She signed lots of contracts with many magazines and studios. She is now with Wilhelmina Models and has a $100.000 contract with Cover girl magazine and now she is arranging to be on the cover of Seventeen Magazine, making her the fourth winner achieving this record. She won a total four challenges. And she defeated her competitor Raina Hein, because the judges thought that Krista would have better chance in her life over the local and international career. She also modeled for top New York designer.

As a start, Krista revealed many things to put bases in the competition. One of her funny situations when she said that she doesn’t want to date a white men, as their pink penis makes her think about raw meet also in tennis instead of owning one pair of shoes she only owns high heels.

The F.A.C.E The Future Fashion Show Review

Inside Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) F.A.C.E Fashion Show.

The name “F.A.C.E” was an excellent match as the make-up and hair for the models was done well. The make-up was done by Mandisa Duperval for Sweet Dreams and assisted by Amber Nicole who is a triple threat; (make-up artist, modeling, and stylist). Stephanie Silva and Brandin Jones coordinated the fashion show with assistance from Kayla Glenn, K’la Lawson, Tayler Page, and Alex Rodriguez. Thou, it’s not customary for coordinators to be in their shows, SCSU made it work. Nevertheless, it only leaves the question of the amount of anxiety and work that comes with pulling double duties on the day of an event.
The host needed to be changed; Slay Washington was not funny and un-entertaining, leaving one to think, if this was the reason many people escape midway or during intermission. The stage was left empty for long periods, and gave the impression of not being organized; though it took months, to put this fashion show production together. The favorite collection of the night was “Resort Line” Aquila Yannic featuring Mad House. The Resort Collection was well done, and ready to wear clothing that fit the models with perfection and the only applaud given by Longe’s Creative Director. The runway had collections from Unamerican, IODI, Jean Evy, O, Clothing from Men Warehouse, The blaze collection, Muder$hewrote and China.
The models included and not limited to; Tye Bell, Ashlee Bowman, Stevie Buchanan, Jamarr Daniels, Shaina Donaldson, Mimi Edouard, Jeremy Grier, Eboni Hylton, Phylicia Lilly, Brandon Martin, Shantalle Martin, Valencia Mckoy, Niasia Mercado Kojo Owusu-Ansah, Vania Petit-Frere, Shamayra Rodriquez, Janirhar Scotland, Aisha Sharp, Fatu sheriff, Amanda Sowah, Louise Sylvain, Alisha Wallace, Michelle Williams, Mwamba Williams, Sheborn Woodley, and more.
More in depth reviews, pictures and like information will be in the April/May 2013 Longe Magazine Issue with Jennifer Lopez on the cover. Once available, magazine can be found on, Magcloud,, and downloadable on Mobile devices.

Style Inspired by Wanderlust

After reviewing Corinne Monique Designs, We here at Longe is excited to announce she will be apart of the first quarter printed of Longe magazine.

On behalf of her press house;

Many people dream of traveling to far away places, visiting exotic cities and partaking of cultural rituals. However,  for one Toronto based fashion designer, the next step from wolfing in wanderlust is to create the experience as a fashionable medium.

{photo of Corinne Monique Designs}

Corinne Monique's designs are inspired by elements of nature and cultures she has yet to experience. During February's New York Fashion Week, Corinne displayed garments that evoke exoticism of the far east; and is a modern take on an ancient oriental style worn by a warrior empress of the future. The Corinne Monique Fall/Winter 2013 collection is titled, 'The Year of the Serpent'. Some of the fabrics are hand made by Corinne. Handmade fabrics are one part of the custom approach to the Corinne Monique's ready-to-wear dresses. The collection was presented using seductive colors and sensual textures such as silks, wool, printed velvets, lace, and gilded finishes. Pieces of decadent fabrics are adored with mythical creatures to symbolize 2013 as the year of the serpent. The fashion looks were cut using ready-to-wear dresses, yet finished with haute couture techniques. "I design fashions for a wide range demographic. My creations are for the twentyish woman to a more sophisticated woman. And the aesthetic is more about what I would like to wear. But I have created full figured fashions for a local boutique in Toronto too. So, I like to keep my future creative options open" says Corinne.

Corinne Monique is one of New York Fashion Week's emerging designer talents for the fall 2013 season. This is Corinne's first experience presenting during New York's market week. "I've normally created fashions for myself or as commissioned special orders, but I am hoping to sell and get my fashions in boutiques across North America. The Rogues Gallery Presents production team was really organized, and my experience was actually very good! I'm still excited and would definitely present in the New York fashion market again. I thought all the designers who presented in the RGP collective were really amazing! I'm so happy to have been a part of it." claims Corinne. The Corinne Monique Collection offers timeless and luxurious fashions for today's modern woman ...who is well traveled or maybe not.
