Orange County’s Fashion Week (OCFW) hit the runway by the beach this year. The show went on all week long during the month of September and I was lucky enough to make it to Day 1 and Day 3. I’ll be featuring some awesome highlights from my time there and listing some pretty amazing up and coming makeup artists, designers, and swim suit models.
The kick off of OCFW was the 2nd Annual SoCal MasterStylist Showdown in Avant Garde, and was all about hair, beauty, and make-up! Some of their top stylists created amazing looks inspired by ‘Alice in Wonderland’ characters, which you will see below.
The event took place at the Orange County Museum of Art’s (OCMA) in Newport Beach, California. The stylists set-up stations throughout the museum for everyone to see. The coolest part was that we had an inside look at the entire transformation process. Imagine front row seats allowing you to witness these models magical transformation into their chosen characters. The stylists did not make it easy for the judges panel which included: Viktorija Pashuta, Rachel Brumbaugh, Sarah Pyle, Manna Kadar, Chadia Almeddin and Kim Loan all professionals in the beauty and fashion industry. Nevertheless, a winner was chosen at the end of the night, which happened to be on of my favorites.
Here are a few highlights:
