Star Struck at Tucson Fashion Week 2014

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Look at who all I got to meet and talk with during Tucson Fashion Week 2014!!!!!!!!!!

Some people go crazy over sport’s players. Some go ga-ga over movie stars. Some flip at meeting novelists. Me? I go nuts over Fashion Designers and Professional Ballet Dancers. So, imagine how excited I was to meet these people at Tucson Fashion Week 2014: Daniel Esquivel, Peach Carr, Bert Keeter, Mila Hermanovski, Korto Momolu (and baby Cameron), David Zyla, and model Camerone Parker!

Meeting Daniel Esquivel!

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Remember the designer with the amazing mustache on Project Runway? Yes, that’s right! Daniel Esquivel!

I first met Daniel when Korto Momolu introduced me to him on the second night of Tucson Fashion Week 2014. His first words to me were, “Teagan, I love your style!” Yes, I was giddy with excitement! He’d even remembered my name from when David Zyla had me walk the runway that night!

Daniel has been amazingly, super-duper, incredibly nice to me. He invited me and my mom backstage on the third night of Tucson Fashion Week 2014 where I got to see AND TOUCH some of his incredible designs. He told me some secrets about what fabrics he used and what techniques he used with the fabrics he chose. I found him incredibly inspirational and I can’t wait to learn more from him. Unfortunately, the time backstage went so quickly that we didn’t get any photos. Let me tell you though, it was amazing! I look forward to showing my own collection alongside of amazing designers like Daniel!

I spent quite a bit of time on the second and third night’s of Tucson Fashion Week 2014 talking with Daniel. He is full of such interesting information, and he mentioned that he’s planning on coming back in 2015!
