Behind the Seams with Stacy Igel

November 10, 2010
One of the recurring themes of this blog has been my roller coaster rider through the fashion industry with my brand, Boy Meets Girl®. I’ve shared with you all the exhilarating climbs as well as those moments where its all I can do to just hold on to whatever I can grasp and just put my faith in a higher power that everything will turn out okay in the end. To stick with the roller coaster theme, there’s been so many ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns.
Really, I’ve often thought you couldn’t script a better show than what happens to me in real life! So starting this week, my roller-coaster-ride-of-a-life will become a reality series on the web called, Behind the Seams with Stacy Igel®! You can check out the webisodes featured on Rate My Professors Blog next week here (link coming soon). Rate My Professors is a property of MTV networks.
Episodes 1-3 will take you behind the scenes as camera crews capture (i) Me & Boy Meets Girl®’s efforts to “go green” with a environmentally-focused office renovation, (ii) fitting models for my runway Spring 2010 fashion show at New York Fashion Week and (iii) the show itself, including backstage footage and last minute preparations.

Here you will see my old office turned into a chic cardboard city by Design Cycle/Campus-U! Cathy from Design Cylce transformed my office into all recycled cardboard and most of the pieces like the chair only took 4 steps to make..crazy huh?? She even created an adorable wish wall where you could insert your own wishes with the colored paper.

This was the day before the fashion show where we had back-to-back model fittings. It was so exiting to see the collection on the models and to see them practice their runway walk! I was so happy with the models we chose- they included winners from an contest, 2 fashion bloggers Saucy Glossie & Late Afternoon, actress Jenn Proske, and an artist Eunice Quiones. Also special guest, Elaine Bradley the drummer for Neon Trees stopped by and I dressed her in Boy Meets Girl®. She totally rocked!

Last but certainly not least- the actual Boy Meets Girl® fashion show! This was such an rewarding experience. My team did a fantastic job and it was so amazing to see it all come together. I don’t know what my favorite part of that day was as every moment I will cherish forever: seeing Neon Trees perform live, watching my models walk down the runway, hugging my team, meeting my family and friends afterward who came to see the show and the list goes on.....

I thought a fun way to kick off the web series would be to have a contest. So here’s how its gonna work - leave a comment below your favorite webisode (Episode 1, 2 or 3) on our Vimeo page, Youtube page or here on my blog and you will automatically be entered into the contest for a chance to win a $100 gift card to the Boy Meets Girl® website!
Six winners will be chosen at random on December 15, 2010.
I am really excited to hear what you all think. So do let me know by leaving your comments :)

Thank you again to my amazing team and I hope you all enjoy the episodes!

xo, Stacy
