This season Chantel Telly and I assisted The Collections, a fashion production and public relations company with four World Mastercard Fashion Week shows for Fall Winter 2015. It was very stressful, very on the fly, but so much bloody fun. A few weeks prior to the shows, we helped with casting models and dealing with fittings. It was a pleasure working with some of our favorite designers including Mikael D, Triarchy, 3.Paradis, and Helder Diego.
Probably the best time backstage. Everyone was happy and at ease! Great group to work with through the casting, fittings and show.
One of the unglamorous sides to styling? Lacing mens dress shoes. Trust me, many ladies (and men) have no idea how to do it. Pre-show prep meant lacing these at home before packing them up for the show the next day.
The most challenging show was probably this beautiful majestic showcase, the Mikael D. runway show. A few dresses were literally on JUST in time to make the runway. We packed the dresses at one location and drove them straight to the tents. I included a few images from the sitting process here. Everyone on the team worked hard to get this show looking flawless and we were proud to play such a huge part.
This show was weeks in the making with fittings and casting taking place early on. Again, a great team to work with and a flawless show. It alos helps that we are Huge fans of the line and the color scheme that Helder Diego used.
Stilettos & Rock n Roll,
