Fashion Week Fuel

by | February 9th, 2013

There’s nothing like New York Fashion Week.  Shoes. Clothes. Makeup. Hairdos.  I mean, I’m a girl.  I like this stuff.  Shoes, jewelry and purses are like little pieces of art.  I admire them not because I want them (even though I usually, really, really do) but because they are beautiful and spectacular, perfect little pieces of happiness.  They are art.  They are form following function, like happiness in the form of a handbag.  Ahhhhhh!

But, I must admit, at Fashion Week, most of these outfits, shoes, purses, jewelry and all that are attached to a female model who may or may not be of legal voting age and void of cellulite or fat anywhere for that matter. Some models look like they need to eat a couple of ham sandwiches.  They’re certainly not eating the green crystal-topped Fashion Week cupcakes for sale just down from Lincoln Center at New York’s famed Magnolia Bakery. As a fashion reporter, you can walk away from Fashion Week with a very reduced sense of self worth and a body image in the Lincoln Center toilet if you’re not careful.  It’s enough to make you want to eat two cupcakes, which is exactly what I did right before I unbuttoned the top notch on my jeans.

It was very apparent that Cheryl was going to be in the fashion business at a very young age. She enjoyed every aspect of the fashion industry from styling to sewing . What a wonderful journey is has been for this true fashion trailblazer! Cheryl majored in Fashion Merchandising at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois where she was active in departmental events and found a particular interest in fashion show production. She assisted creating large runway shows and found it was easy and fulfilling. She also worked in a small fashion boutique where she used her natural love of sales and people skills to build a loyal clientele. But upon graduation, Dallas, TX was her target city to live to expand her fashion career.
