Takia Ross Key Make-Up Artists for Baltimore Fashion Week

Baltimore Fashion Week is pleased to announce that the search for a Key Make-up Artist has ended.  Takia Ross has been selected and has accepted the position of Key Make-up Artist for Baltimore Fashion Week.

Ms. Ross [Takia] comes to Baltimore Fashion Week with several years of knowledge and a skill set creativity to apply various looks for the event from natural/clean to theatrical/Avant Garde.  The search for a person to take on this responsibility has not been an easy one, especially at almost the last hour.

Takia has assumed the responsibility of interviewing, selecting, and managing a daily make-up team of 15 or more for this year's production. 

"Since our Key Make-up Artist of over 3 years, Valeria Tilghman, was not able to participate this year, I became extremely nervous and just put it out of my mind hoping that Val [Valarie Tilghman] would change her mind.  When that dream became a nightmare, that's when I really got butterflies. It was a pleasure to interview Takia and to make the preliminary selection.  Ultimately, due to Val's experience in her field, her experience with Baltimore Fashion Week, and her knowledge of my vision she would be the best person to make the final decision.  Being a woman within the fashion industry, I love to apply make-up, but to select a proper, qualified, and experienced person for this year's event, well, that's Val's lane.  I welcome Takia with open arms to our production family," stated, Sharan Nixon, Founder/CEO of Baltimore Fashion Week.

Takia, will not only be the key artist for this year, but will also work collectively with Valerie Tilghman in future productions of Baltimore Fashion Week.

The interview date has been scheduled and registered make-up artists will be contacted soon.  Takia Ross' can be reached by email for questions or comments at
