Weekly Recap: Macy’s American Icons and SAC California Counter Culture Fashion Shows


On Thursday I worked backstage at Macy’s American Icons fashion show, which was dedicated to showcasing the amazing talent of all-American designers, such as Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. It was a pretty packed and crazy show- one of the models got stuck in traffic and couldn’t make it to the show, so all the other girls got an extra outfit added in.

So, I have a confession to make… I have never seen a real fashion show, from the audience, actually in person. When I dress backstage, there is never enough time to see what’s going on outside, which is probably the only downside to the job. I did see part of the fashion show I helped organize at my high school, from the side, but that doesn’t really count.

The fashion program at Santa Ana College put on a fashion show featuring designs and signature lines by students in the fashion program at the Yost Theater. I loved the theme of California Counter Culture because it was so organic and truly celebrated the laid back and carefree attitude of California. Kaitlyn Jenkins, who plays Boo Jordan on ABC Family’s Bunheads, hosted the event, and afterwards me and my sister got a picture with her. She was so adorable!
