Backstage at Jeremy Scott Spring 2012
I’ll be honest - Jeremy Scott has never been one of my favourite labels. In fact, I probably am more likely to laugh at the collections than to enjoy them. But, pretentiousness aside, I actually did enjoy the show and some of the pieces he presented during NYFW.
I was backstage prior to the show which was an experience in itself. If you’ve never been backstage at a fashion show then just imagine about 20 models getting their hair and make-up done at the same time, hair & make-up artists working crazy, and photographers snapping away the whole time. Some shows are more hectic than others, it really all depends on how everything is run. Jeremy Scott was one of the shows that seemed pretty quiet and running to schedule and then the next moment there’s 6 people working on one girl, head hair stylists shouting and makeup artists getting flustered, and models getting into their final looks as the show is starting.
Here’s a little glimpse backstage, all pictures taken with my iphone because by this stage of the week the camera I had on loan from MILK was dead.
The hair and make-up inspiration for this show was supposedly the idea of this country girl arriving in the city and going for a night out and not really knowing what she’s doing. Heavy eye make-up, freckles and cute pig-tails. To me the girls looked like Pippi Longstocking (this isn’t a bad thing, I love Pippi Longstocking actually).
I can’t recall what this was paired with but, if you haven’t seen the collection, there were some seriously crazy ensembles
Like what Sebastian Suave was wearing..
Pink-haired Charlotte Free
Ridiculously good looking Grace Bol and Andrej
The man himself being interviewed by E!
the freckles looked especially super cute on some
