Last night was the culmination of three really intense weeks in my new post at Emily Muller. This might be the understatement of the century, but....SO much work, blood, sweat, and tears (literally...all three of the latter were shed!) goes into putting on a runway show!!!!
More on the show later, but here are some photos I managed to take between craziness backstage.
Hair and Makeup Tent
Morgan of Model Club getting zhuzhed.
The calm before the storm - the tent minutes before they started letting people in.
The dressers getting organized, and Emily Muller, the designer, trying to keep everyone on track and making sure everything looked up to par. Note: She got her hair and makeup done and got dressed 15 min before the show.
One Hour to showtime!! Emmy, me, and Aubry, another indispensible teammate, taking literally half a second's pause to be in a picture, for posterity -- or, interchangeably, "prosperity" and "posteriors".
Vivian, our intern, who also turns out to be somewhat of a genius.
Jacqueline, of Dynasty, and Morgan, of Model Club
All the models lined up for the runway with Emily.
Backstage is by far the best place to be during a fashion show. I've sat front row at NYFW, I've stood in the back (also at NYFW), but being backstage at the reincarnation of Boston Fashion Week was so amazing and such a rush! It really is the nucleus of the entire show, and the energy, ambition, and chaos are palpable. I can safely say I'm addicted now.
Anyway, check out Emilymuller.com -- there are some great photos from FW2011 (SS2012 will be up soon, but there are some pieces available for pre-order!).
ps - I'm still not done posting NYFW photos!! I'm way behind, but now you kittens can see why -- I've been busy!!
