Thoughts on Being in Front of the Camera



 Hello everyone my name is Aliyah I Jones and I am an aspiring model/blogger and business manager at HifashMagazine. This post is long over due but, on the bright side I wanted to share my experience on my first time being in front of the camera. In the middle of November I did my first photoshoot with the talented photographer Ricky Codio. It was a bit of a challenge for me to adjust being in front of a camera because, I always took pictures of my brothers and sisters and smiled in selfies when I got bored. I realized taking selfies is not the way to become a model in the fashion industry. Posing and confidence is the key to have a successful modeling career and also have variety of different looks to attract different types of clients. Over the past couple of months I've been thinking about my career goals and what I wanted to do in my life. I realized modeling is a very risky career choice and I wasn't sure if I met the standards. I actually went to an open call in New York for  Major Model Management. At the time I was 14 (15 now) and 5'10 in 5 inch heels and I was the tallest girl and also the youngest that arrived there. When I walked in the room I could feel the tension in the girls and it was very uncomfortable for me because, I could feel them staring at me and looking me up and down in disgust. That's when I realized this industry is no joke and you have to be a very strong person to put up with this in castings during Fashion Week. When I met with the casting directors they said I definitely have potential but the only problem was my age and I was still in school. They never called back to say if I got the job or not which was okay because, that gave me a wake call on having a plan B in my career choice and I've decided to continue on being a model and also work on HifashMagazine and make it a worldwide brand.

I'm not giving up

Pale Nails

Crème colored nails has been gaining momentum since early last year but, what surprised us at HiFash was seeing this nail color in fashion shows. There were soft milky shades at Marc Jacobs, some pure whites at Rag & Bone, and a whole bunch of unfinished French mani's at Chanel. This season, taking your nail color down a notch is the new way to play it cool.

The Dark Side


Dark colored nails are definitely in for this years fall season! From the grayish Navy shades at Jason Wu's show (OPI’s Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees) to the purplish vinyl at Marchesa (Essie Tuxedo), the dark angel look went big in just a few shows! If you want to try a darker color nail polish this season try dressing in brighter clothes to make your nails pop!

Designer: Nicole Miller



Metallic Colors 
Silver, gold, copper colored nails stood out at Nicole Millers fashion show. Her nails were detailed with a diamond decal, and at Monika Chiang show she had a sleek platinum racing streak on her models fingertips. For those who want to experiment with this trend without going too far, try painting just your tips with a bit of sparkle or decorating one or two nails with specks of gold or silver and color the plain nails a dark or a brighter color.

Two Shaded Manicure
Try being bold without being over the top, the dual polish effect got plenty of play at fashion shows. A new twist on the French manicure looks very easy to do on your own. Just start contrasting different colored shades that flatter your skintone and use a small brush to paint on a nice graphic style for example a V shape effect or a diagonal strip.
