Walking with Innovators Gwen Devoe and Sharon Quinn

 

      
When the Innovators of Full-Figured Fashion Week offer a Runway Intensive Class you make moves to be in that class. I could not pass up this opportunity to gain knowledge and training with these two powerhouses. This was a first come first serve opportunity. This was a small intimate class offered by founder and CEO of Full-Figured Fashion Week Ms. Gwen DeVoe and The Runway Diva Ms. Sharon Quinn. If you missed this, let me tell you this was a game changing opportunity. Let me give you some of the highlights from this intimate session.

 The class consisted of about 15-20 women. Most of the women that attended are models at different stages in their careers. Opening the class we discussed some of the industry standards, the body positive movement, composite cards, posing, selecting a team for your photo shoots . As well as how not to be type cast within the industry. They touched on how important branding and investing in your craft is for your modeling career. Both ladies gave great advice on being your best within the industry.
The second half of the class of course was the Runway Intensive. Boy, was it intense. These ladies did not come to play. We were given pointers on how to blaze the runway. What your stride should look like on the runway and how to pose at the end of the runway. Make the most of your moment in front of the cameras ladies.
It wouldn't 't be a Runway Intensive if there wasn't a competition. Now you know there had to be a walk off....Team Devoe verses Team Quinn. Each coach chose three members from their group to represent their team. Let's just say Team Quinn brought the heat while the Silver Foxes burned down the building down. This was so much fun.
