How It Works: Models, dancers, bloggers, musicians, comedians, and other participants come in for a fitting with three to four designers and receive styling assistance from Fashion Coffee or a Fashion Coffee licensed wardrobe stylist. A hairstylist will provide hairstyles, and makeup artists will apply makeup (full services or touch-ups are available). Your nails must be a neutral color (nude, light pink, blush, or white); otherwise, a custom nail technician or consultant will apply press-on nails.
Participants will be given 30 minutes per designer to take 30 pictures with an assigned photographer. (the photographer will provide 10 edits). After your photoshoot, there will be a mini fashion show recorded by a videographer. You may walk for more than one designer. After the mini fashion show, a journalist and/or media platform will interview you in front of the Fashion Coffee backdrop.
