A memory article when I was able to go to pop up shops like Beauty Con. Have you ever been to one? They’re pretty dope.
Without further delay, here is an old article that inspired my relentless lifestyle of making bold choices, and not using my critical mindset to deter my fun and creativity.
I wanted to share one of the many things I LOVE ABOUT LOS ANGELES:
POP Up INTERACTIVE MUSEUMS!
So far BeautyCon takes the cake! A pop up about fashion, fashion icons, and beauty inspiration. This is called BeautyCon. My friend Anniefound this gem, and said, “Let’s go!!” We went the same day we planned it! Below are some photos for our editorial with the theme of ‘Self Exploration.’ BeautyCon provides a space where you are free to engage with the world around you. You are empowered to make choices. (As a side note: This is one of the principals of Trauma-Informed care: EMPOWERMENT. VOICE. CHOICE. Having your own freedom to choose and giving the space for others to make their own decisions without judgment is crucial to the healing process.
This is what sparked my first music video, and I’m excited to share it with you. It was because of BeautyCon my creative mind began to flow. As a child, I would listen to a song and ruminate on it to the point where I created music videos in my head. What would it look like, how would it be filmed, the wardrobe, the characters, etc. It was time to put fantasy into action, and played around with the iPhone. Thank you Annie for being my muse LOL! I hope to go to another pop up like this soon…. But that corona virus is killing our vibes.
Tell me what you think about my first production vlog.
A few of our fashion choices were from Vivi Collections, Forever 21, and Express.
I’ll see you soon,
