Consumers today want to make their own choices as to what’s hot for fall. We don’t have to rely on the glossies to tell us what we like; we can choose for ourselves.

What would really be better is if it included a GPS tracker for the Fashion House Sample Sales! But seriously, this app is like none other. You get beautiful photos of your favorite designer’s collections form the end of the runway, and it’s all nicely categorized. Loves it! Check out the Trendtracker from Trendstop and let us know what you think….



Are you runway ready?

Given that we are on the heels of Mercedes-Benz 2010 fashion week (pun intended), we anxiously await the unveiling of our favorite designer’s collections to see what’s in store. Oftentimes, we stare up at these human hangers as they present the most beautiful garments and think, she must be starving out to look that good. These negative thoughts probably provide some sort of comfort to think that what we’re seeing on the runway and in magazine is unattainable or unhealthy. However Jennifer Cassetty, Wilhelmina model and fitness trainer, begs to differ and asks the question…Are you runway ready?

Jennifer Cassetty is the epitome of fitness and behavioral change. With over 12 years experience in the health, fitness, and wellness arena working with celebrities, athletes, as well as other models, she has rapidly become a mentor helping model -hopefuls  and the like realize their dream without risking their health. Currently mags digitally enhance photos to add curves to give these stick figures a more healthy appearance. Cassetty affirms that the next generation of models must not only look healthy, but BE healthy and fit to be competitive and reach top model status. Jennifer offers an alternative to this unhealthy trend with her Model Fitness Regime including reverse lunges, plank alternating rows, and jackknife abs. The workout helps increase core strength and strengthens the hip and knee stability so that you can effortlessly stomp the runway in your stilettos. Looking your best under those gorgeous garments starts with an awareness of a healthy lifestyle, a balanced nutritious diet, and of course exercise. Check out this video where Cassetty discusses the dangers of the modeling world from a fitness perspective. She knows how cut throat the industry can be and how to be thin and body ready without killing yourself.
