Happy Monday, All!
Hope you had a beautiful weekend. Speaking of beauty, if you are in New York City, then there is a good chance you are already on your way to today’s shows for New York Fashion Week. As you may already know, the week-long celebration of all things fashion began last week and runs through September 17. Unique highlights of this year’s show include a collection called “Ground Zero” by Hong Kong-based designers Eric and Philip Chu. These young designers want “Ground Zero” to be seen as a sign of hope. Eric and Phillip told the New York Daily News that their designs were inspired “by Chinese street style and include striped sweaters, bright orange pleather pants, funky fishnet tops and cargo pants.” A bright light as New York City observed the 14th anniversary of the September 11 tragedy this year.
Since I sprained my foot during Labor Day weekend, I am lying low and sitting this Fashion Week’s festivities out, but I will live vicariously through you.
Also, the television fall premiere season is in full swing with many shows premiering last week. I will have my sprained foot propped up with ice as I watch the premieres continue to roll out. Which shows will make the cut and which ones will be canceled? Stay tuned…
This week on Ready4Air (TV), watch my full video interview with Henson in the British Virgin Islands, where she talks about Cookie Lyon’s new style for season two of Empire and the BVI as a new destination for Fashion Week.
There are a few things that I enjoy about New York City summers, and that includes shooting productions and watching them being taped in the streets. The actors and crew become one with the viewers of their shows when they set up taping or filming on location. If you are lucky, you might see your favorite celebrity and get a selfie. As a television producer, seeing the production crew out in the streets never gets old.
This week on Ready4Air (TV), on my morning bike ride I spot the big television trucks and crew on Riverside Drive setting up to shoot a scene for CBS’s Madam Secretary starring Téa Leoni and Tim Daly. Of course, I had to stop and take a few pictures, which I will share in the post “A Summer Moment: Shooting TV On The Streets Of New York.”
And finally, do you find yourself wasting time when it comes to social media? Social-media management can be a big time suck. Just think about how quickly hours go by when you read through Facebook posts. And that’s just one social-media platform. As entrepreneurs, we don’t have time to waste.
This week on Ready4Air (Brands and Bloggers), read our tips on having a plan and being organized so that you can save time, money, and even your happiness.
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned.
