Fashion Week, Apollo Theater, Film and Toni Braxton Concert

15 Sep


I have not been as active on my blog but great opportunities  and events have come my way.  I recently was a production assistant on a feature film shoot in NY city. I can’t provide many details about the film because I signed a waiver but it was really exiting. I have never worked in film but it was amazing opportunity to expand my creative services.

Yesterday, I want to a free taping of the famous Apollo Theater. I met Dougie Fresh  but Gladys Knight and Michael Biven also attended the event as guest judges.  Most of the acts were great and few were terrible.  I never realized how long it takes to shoot a television series. Many of the clips were reshoot multiple times.  The live performance was Chrisette Michael, a popular R&B singer.

My favorite thing that I did this month was attend Fashion Week. I was able to snag  a ticket to Fashion Week 2013 Premiere Event Feat. Project Runway Designer Irina Shabayeva and Vogue Published Designer Long Tran.  The  event was held at Empire Hotel Rooftop on44  West 63rd Street, New York, New York 10023. The cloths were amazing. I defiantly preferred Irina line because it was more practical while Long’s collection was more futuristic. It has always been a dream of mine to go to Fashion Week. Every year I would try to volunteer but never could get a position.

In August, I went to a Toni Braxton concert at the State Theater in New Brunswick, NJ. It was awesome and the State Theater has defiantly upgraded there line of events.  The place was packed as she perform some of her greatest hit  such as Unbreak My Heart and Breathe Again. Ton’s sister Towanda, Trina and Traci performed as well. Trina is also launching a solo career and had a mini concert within the show. I thought that was very nice of Toni to let her sister shine as well. Tamar was not there, I assume she is busy with her own career.

This is shaping up to be a wonderful September and my birth is this month. Super excited  about turning 24.
