Hey Lifers, it’s been a month since my last post, obviously it took me longer than everybody else to escape my turkey coma. Negative, that wasn’t it at all I spent the majority of January planning for the rest of the year and attending birthday parties ( I know an obscene amount of people born in January). In any case it was a very interesting month! So what better way to start my blogging year than with an update on the dynamic styling team that I started my blog with; It’s Been Done Stylists. I caught up with them on the set of their promotional photo shoot for an event they are doing in NY for fashion week this month. You remember them… I know you do, if your new to my blog just jump over to the Backstage Lights category and scroll down you will come across the first interview that I did with them. 2010 was a great year for the team of Sheronna and Janielle and they are poised to make 2011 even greater, so let’s catch up with them It’s Been Done…
Sum up 2010 in a few words. What was the most memorable moment from last year?
Inspiring, challenging, the year of preparation. Our most memorable moment in 2010 would be styling our first rock video “Diamond on a Landmine” for sensational Canadian Rock group Billy Talent. We had a chance to showcase our true creativity in a tribal scene, which was filmed in a cement pit. What was even more memorable was seeing the video play over and over again on TV and recognizing all of the hard work we put in. Seeing the finished product was one of the most fulfilling feelings in the world. Also in 2010 we were offered our own fashion channel with ovntv. It’s those moments that make us keep striving for excellence.
What is the plan for It’s been done in 2011?
World Domination…lol..But to be real..we have a lot planned this year. IBD will be everywhere sharing our talents with the world along with inviting you to our fashion events. Our channel will also be running in a few months so that is something to keep our audience on their toes and of course we will continue pumping out more photo shoots for your viewing pleasure. We have received so much love and support and we just want to be able to give back what we get.
Janielle-My dream job would be owning an artists agency, which would
consist of, photographers, stylists, make up artists and hair stylists. I also want to produce presentations to display pieces from well-known designers and up and coming designers. Sheronna and I have been blessed to connect with people not only in fashion but also in music. Having a client come to my agency as a one stop shop..could save a lot of time not to mention keep the client coming back
Sheronna– My dream job…inconjunction with having a successful agency I want to be the effortlessly styled actress who dresses herself for red carpet events and who has a thriving design house of her own! Some may think my dreams are far-fetched but hunni this is my reality (the world just doesn’t know it yet! Lol)
What has been the most interesting thing that has happened since we last met in April of 2010?
Janielle- IBD in NYC.I find it very interesting that we have taken such a risk to do an event with no experience at all..But we have managed to pull all the right strings together. I guess we can add Event Coordinators to our resume now..lol.
Sheronna- Modeling in and having full control over the creative direction of the IBD creative shoots has definitely been fun and interesting. We continue to push our creative limits while using ourselves as the canvas and, yes the idea of planning full-out fashion events and building everything from ground up has been amazing!
Tell me about the event happening in New York for fashion week?
Our event is happening on Feb 16th and it’s called “L’hors du L’ordinaire” which means out of the ordinary which is the best way to describe the talent of Its Been Done Stylists. With fashion moving in cycles and seasons it is always the IBD goal to continuously add twists and tweaks to today’s trends; pulling a bit from the future and keeping a dash of the past! Hailing from such a diverse city as Toronto its always important for us to stay true to our multiculturalism which is why the name of our event is in our second tongue; French. We have always been known for our influence and originality among our peers and now we want to bring forth our own twist on today’s traditional fashion event. Considered more as a fashion experience we invite guests for a more intimate view of fashion and style through IBD eyes; those eyes happen to be covered in vintage frames of course!
Keep your eye on these two über fashionable ladies, I’m sure we will be seeing a lot more of them!
