Today we are giving you a glimpse backstage at the hair and make-up environment during fashion shows. Usually it is a very crowded and busy atmosphere, creating lots of noise, scents and most of all: craziness.
The first step in creating a beauty-look for a show is setting up a hair and make-up test meeting to determine the final look, this takes place a few days before the show and involves the designer, stylist, hair stylist and make-up artist. In the pictures below we give you a closer view at the beauty-look for the Monique Lhuillier S/S14 fashion show and some exciting backstage shots from various past shows.

Last week some of New York’s most iconic fashion names were heading south to support the 2014 graduation show (have a look at Refinery 29 for a full report) at Savannah College of Art and Design. This season they took the show to the next level by presenting the collections in the SCAD Museum of Art. A beautifully restored building designed by (Christian Sottile). Among the guests were Pat Cleveland and Andre Leon Talley, a long time SCAD supporter, who presented his Lifetime Achievement Award to the acclaimed fashion designer Stephen Burrows, who is the subject of a special exhibition at SCAD through September 15 titled ‘An American Master of Inventive Design.
Guests included J. Alexander, who coached the models on their walks and especially their attitude, Natalie Joos from the vintage fashion blog: Tales of Endearment, among other editors and insiders coming to see what the next generation is up to. The Dizon team was brought in to bring a touch of NY fashion week to the Savannah school.
In honor of J. Alexander, the models created a tribute video of his signature pose.
In case you missed the livestream of the SCAD fashion show, you can re-watch it on their website.

Sometimes when fashion week is over it feels like it was all just one very long, elaborate dream. Here’s some proof that it really happened:
