#STYLESERIES EPISODE 1

Inside Made In America

IMG_9053.JPG

Welcome to the behind the scenes scoop of "Made In America!" I'll be posting my personal thoughts about each weeks episode along with outfit details, hair & makeup looks, as well as other fun candid shots! I'm so excited to share this experience with all of you! More importantly, I want to hear from you as the weeks continue--what details about the show do you want to know more about?

This past week I was SO incredibly excited to meet our final 6 contestants! IN PERSON! We received over 6,000 applications and these ladies really showed their commitment to the experience.  Throughout the series, we have a weekly theme for each episode along with a series of challenges related to that theme. After all the challenges are issued, myself (along with the input of our expert guests) choose a weekly winner. The weekly winner will receive 1 point towards the final competition as well as personal 1-on-1 time with me to ask any questions and/or help them with issues they are facing.

Since it was the first week, we eased them into the process by focusing on their strengths and weaknesses. Congrats to this weeks winner, Adhiti Jhota! From physical to mental challenges, she totally recognized her strengths & weaknesses and really took direction from all our expert judges to help change her mindset!

I designed this dress myself with fabric I found at a store in India. It was a perfect look for me to be able to showcase my Indian roots & American culture.
