Each fashion week the Modellounge provides an amazing fashion week survival tote stocked full of great products that come in handy during the rough weeks of castings, fittings, and shows.
Here are the goodies from this seasons tote!
Feel free to check out last seasons survival kit.
Redken Extreme Shampoo & Conditioner
The extreme line is for distressed hair. Which is exactly what your hair is after fashion week. I feel that this shampoo really helps keep my hair soft and healthy. It doesn't dry it out like a lot of other shampoos do. I plan on continuing to use this product.
Ice Breakers Duo Mints
I eat these pretty much like candy. They're delicious. What's fun is the to share and not to share sides. That way other people aren't taking all of your mints when they try to bum one off of you.
Ice Breakers Ice Cubes Gum
These are also pretty tasty. They're great to quick refresh your breath before running into a casting or job.
These are one of my favorite products. They're a lot more powerful than I had expected. Perfect for refreshing your breath. I also like the pick that is on the end to help remove any left over food.
Biore Make-up Removing Towelettes
Is it not uncommon for the make-up team to roll out before the show is over. Leaving you on your own to remove the crazy make-up they've left on your face. Make-up remover wipes are a perfect way to have your face a little more subway friendly after a show. For me personally, this brand is a little harsh on my skin.
These are great for removing make-up or nail polish, make-up touch ups, cleaning jewelry, painting, and a world of other uses.
Tampax Radiant Tampons & Always Radiant Incredibly Thin Liners
Feminine products are always appreciated. Always.
Fashion tape is one of those industry secrets. It keeps your boobs from popping out, jewelry in place, and shoes on your feet. The uses are endless.
Schick Quattro Trim
The cool thing about this razor is that along with the typical razor blade, there is also a trimmer.
These are going to be amazing to have as the weather turns colder. Or, if you have ever been in the Lincoln Center tents you know that it is practically winter in there. The A/C is pumped so high that it gives you a runny nose.
Vaseline Body Lotion
This is a great carrying size. It is easy to slip into your bag and quickly apply before hitting the runway.
This product is awesome. It is an automatic face wash dispenser. What's better than having soap put in your hand for you? Then when you are washing your layers of runway makeup off and need a little more soap, there's no fumbling around for the soap bottle. Plus it comes with two great smelling soap options, soothing plant extract and superfruit splash.
Redken Dry Shampoo
I love dry shampoo. If you have dry hair from dye or heat then you want to avoid washing your hair too often. Dry shampoo fills in the gaps between washes. I like that this one has a slight minty smell to it. Sometimes dry shampoos can be too much. This one nailed it.
What girl doesn't need hairspray? This is perfect for those big curls.
Evian Facial Spray
I'm really excited about this product. My skin gets pretty dry. Specially as the weather becomes colder. Any product that keeps my skin hydrated is really appreciated!
Purell Hand Sanitizer
If you have ever ridden the NYC subway you know some of the outrageous things that happen down there. It's beyond disgusting. When you're running around to 20 places a day during fashion week, there isn't too much extra time to wash your hands.
OPI Nail Polish Remover
Just like make-up artists leaving you on your own to remove your make-up after a show. You're on your own to remove your nail polish. Every client always wants clean nails. When you have 3 shows a day it's impossible to show up to every show with clean nails. This carrying size makes that possible.
Totes Micro Umbrella
This guy folds up into the perfect purse size. It's easy carrying size means that I can keep it in my purse and never be drenched again!
Fashion week is beyond draining. It's a lot of running around, early mornings (I had a 5am call time this season), and late nights. Trust me, sometimes you need the extra help.
MTA Subway Map
MTA Subway Map
While I live in NYC and am very familiar with the subway there are a lot of foreign girls that come into town just for fashion week. I know what I was new a subway map would have been a life saver.
One model secret is to wear flats and change into heels before going into your casting. Blisters often develop since clients love to cram your feet in too small of shoes. Ipanema sandals are comfortable and won't rub those new blisters. They're also easy to toss in your bag when you change into heels.
I want to say a huge thank you to Modellounge and that participating partners.This seasons tote was amazing.
Thank you =]
