Austin Fashion Week 2015 Mash Up Teams Unite!

Austin’s annual fashion week 2015 is nearly here {occurring the week of April 10-18th, 2015}!  A unique extension of the events is the annual Fashion X Austin Mash Up Team Competition.

This last week has been incredibly energizing preparing to enter this collaborative challenge as our creative style team effortlessly captured a memorable image for submittal.

Our Incredible Fashion X-Mash Up: Team Revival

The really cool part of the story is that this host of ridiculously gifted ladies entered this project having never met one another. It slays me that our vision came together literally through a series of emails and inspiring Pinterest posts over the last two months.

Bryttannee Eaton and yours truly primp model, Jennifer Johnston

Many thanks to Bryttannee Eaton {of Bryttannee Eaton Beauty and Forever Styled Brand Collaborator} who served as our fearless team leader and makeup artist. Ashley Christian provided key insights from Nordstrom of Austin as we pulled clothes to set the stage for our photography love fest. Thank you to Revival of Austin for providing such an amazing place to shoot !

Joining forces with the stunning, Laura Morsman {Laura Morsman Photography} was the smartest choice we could have made to capture our kodak moment. Kellie Campos {Rock Gorgeous Hair} jetted in from the Cayman Islands to offer her amazing hair fairy services. She even made the Garden of Eden inspired orchid laced head-dress with her own crafty hands.

Jennifer is having a little too much fun striking a pose!

Of course, a picture cannot speak unless the model behind the clothes confidently brings her game. Jennifer Johnston graced us with self-guided professionalism and grace throughout our two hour shoot. She has no personality at all {wink}.

How to possibly narrow things down?

Laura took over 700 photos in less than two hours and managed to narrow the images to her Top 9–literally the afternoon of our due date. After casting our own votes as a team over the course of a few hours—THE WINNER EMERGED:
