After such great success on Front House Management hosting the premier of the film “The Tents” in Dallas, TX, and a special appearance from Director James Belzer, new and exciting plans are being scheduled to begin filming the next fashion documentary “Make it in Manhattan”. With James Belzer being in attendance for the film, an exciting accomplishment has been given to Karen Michelle, CEO and Founder of Front House Management. She will be the Dallas Project Manager/ Executive producer for the new film’s project.
Karen Michelle will be scouting Dallas to talk to local designers and manufacturing companies while gaining research for the film. The film is set up to premier during September 2013 New York Fashion Week and other major cities. The cameras will be rolling in Dallas with appearances from big fashion names. Fashion Group International (Headquarters) is a at-large sponsor for this film.
Karen’s credentials holds weight for this position as the new Dallas Project Manager and Executive Producer for the upcoming film. In 2008, she produced her very first fashion show, Phantom Runway, benefiting Genesis Women’s Shelter in Dallas, TX. Front House Management Fashion PR has developed strategies to meet the needs of every client by developing local and national media campaigns for a variety of lifestyles. FHM is home-based in Dallas, Texas to provide brands with worldwide capabilities, yet, specializes in giving individualized attention to her clientele. Karen Michelle is also the brain child behind one of the largest fashion runway productions in Dallas, Texas; The Celebrity Fashion Experience.
Director James Belzer is involved with several key film projects, including “THE TENTS” – a documentary about the history of NY Fashion Week that was just released (www.TheTentsMovie.com), “MAKE IT IN MANHATTAN” (www.MakeItInManhattan.com), and “THE CHERRY GROVE INVASION ” – a documentary about the colorful members of the Cherry Grove (Fire Island) community. James’ lists of accomplishments include
joining Fairchild Publications and beginning his career in ad sales in the world of fashion magazines. After 7 years at Fairchild working at M Magazine, he went on to work for other national magazines such as Esquire, Spa Finder and most recently, for the past five years as the Business Development Director at Harper’s Bazaar.
“Make it in Manhattan & The USA” is an exciting new business initiative (with film, website and seminars) that promotes NY as a fashion capital, plus reinforces the importance of selecting NY & domestic based manufacturing options. The underlying effort is designed to support the U.S. fashion economy.
