New York Fashion Week 2016: Who is Barbara Berman?
Barbara Berman is an instructor at FIT. She coordinates and supplies dressers for the fashion shows during New York Fashion Week. She also dresses the entire Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! She came to us and said that she needed all of her students to have a basic kit, wondering if we’d put one together for her. We did, and we found it so popular that we now sell it year-round.
New York Fashion Week 2016: What’s in the Barbara Berman Kit?
- Black 3 pocket apron
- 1 box ½” Topstick
- Mini Lint Roller
- White Gloves
- Bite Lite
- Pre-Threaded Needles
- Thread Clipper
- Black Safety Pins
These are all so essential backstage– the apron keeps everything handy, Topstick protects modesty or fixes a hem quickly. Lint rollers keep everything looking perfect, and white gloves keep delicate fabrics and accessories from getting dirty. A bite lite keeps your flashlight hands-free when you’re in the dark backstage, and pre-threaded needles allow you to make small fixes without struggling to thread a needle in the dark (which is tricky even with a bite lite!). Thread clippers work on loose threads and sewing, and what can’t black safety pins do?
Good luck with Fashion Week 2016– don’t forget that Manhattan Wardrobe Supply is here for everything you need for this big, busy week!
