We ask Erica some questions about the perks of winning the contest!
EK: Being a self taught editorial stylist it was great to be able to collaborate with other inspiring artists and share ideas and visions. It was an honor to meet and work with some of the best artists in the industry, such as Vivienne Mackinder, Michelle OConner and Dilek Onur-Taylor.
CT: You’ve had the opportunity, during the Modern Salon workshop and in your own career, to get hands-on with models and work together with makeup artists and fashion stylists. How is that interaction for you?
EK: It really emphasizes the importance of both teamwork and leadership. The overarching vision has to be fully conveyed each member of the group so that everyone is working towards a common goal and the final results are cohesive and compliment each other.
CT: Do you have any top tips learned during the workshop that you’ve applied to your career?
EK: Always start with a plan or outline. You can change it as you progress but definitely do not “wing it” and expect success. Write it down and share it with your team.
CT: This year you will be one of our judges…what are you looking forward to seeing from your fellow stylists that enter to win? Any advice to them?
EK: Something unique, creative and on-trend. Definitely show your creativity.
CT: Last but not least…what’s your favorite candy?!
EK: I like many candies so that’s a hard one … but probably red twizzlers.
