Brad dishes on the stress of nearly missing the Monique Lhullier show.

Thank you for watching Season 2 of It's a Brad, Brad World! As you can see, a lot has changed since last season: business is booming and I have two new styling assistants, Thomas and Hannah. Lindsay is now the Queen Bee of my business! Absolutely everyone and everything goes through her. She has become more than an assistant; she is part of my family. Thomas is the first assistant I ever used when I went out on my own, but at the time I couldn’t hire him full time and he was looking for full time work. The minute I was able to hire him, I gave him a call and he accepted the position. It's been almost two years. Hannah started out as an intern. She had no experience in fashion, but she was willing to learn and absorbed everything very quickly. She has a great eye, an incredible sense of style, and she makes me laugh, so once we started getting really busy, I hired her full time. I love my team! They work really hard and we have fun doing it...most of the time.

I feel so lucky to get to work with Kate Spade New York as their brand stylist. One of my responsibilities is styling their presentations for New York Fashion week. My first job is to edit down the racks and racks of product to pull out the pieces I feel are the strongest and work together to communicate the inspiration and the story of the collection that Deborah Lloyd, the Creative Director of Kate Spade New York, has come up with. For three days, Deborah and I work very closely to put the looks together, fit them on the models, and put the finishing touches on them. We discuss what the hair, makeup, and nails will be and do a test to make sure it is the look we want. Then we decide where the models will be positioned based on which outfits we feel are the most important or have the most impact.
