Neiman Marcus at the Westfield Garden State Plaza recently held a special presentation of the season’s trendiest looks, styled and hosted by Dana Priggé, owner and editor-in-chief of DailyFashionista.com. I had the pleasure of capturing the event and was able to learn plenty of helpful fashion tips while gaining inspiration both for my personal appearance and professional career.
Dana is a successful woman with a great reputation in the media industry, so I was excited when she invited me to be a part of this showcase attended by many of the New York City metro area’s top fashion writers. Guests enjoyed a delectable brunch as Dana discussed attire for the workplace, a night on the town, and everything in between. She also shared some refreshing insight about thriving in the business world – a welcome bonus.
My favorite items shown include a standout Burberry trench coat with grommet detailing and a Diane von Furstenberg black-and-white color block dress. Not to mention, everyone got to take home a signature Neiman Marcus tote bag – I love and use mine constantly. Click here for the full event recap.
While filming, I didn’t want to miss a second of Dana speaking – but there was much more to this project than simply hitting “record” and walking away. I was constantly zooming and panning to keep up with the model’s movement and I meticulously shot close-ups to utilize as b-roll. Transitions were my friend in the edits, plus a hip beat inspired by Lady Gaga as the finishing touch.
With all the quality content caught on camera, I decided to create two videos (below). The first focuses on outfits (and is currently the featured video on DailyFashionista.com!) while the second highlights accessories. Take a few moments to hear all of Dana’s exceptional style advice and discover some fashionable pieces to shop for…
