Apparel Mart-based First Tuesday Productions is getting ready to roll with its second installment of Cameramoda, a video fashion magazine that debuted June 8 on Channel 8. Hosted by Susan Erwin, former Fashion Director of Saks Fifth Avenue in Dallas, Cameramoda is the brainchild of First Tuesday president Pierre Bagley. The initial video covered all fashion bases, with featurettes on the opening of the Cannes Film Festival and an interview with Barbie, among others. The next scheduled air date is in late September; the video will include a countdown of fall’s greatest hits and special features on BUI Blass and Grace Jones fashions.
