NYFW Backstage Diary: MILLY Edition
[[MORE]]Wondering what it’s like backstage at the MILLY Spring 2014 Fashion Show? Don’t worry, Michelle Smith, founder and designer, gives us the behind the scenes tour.
Click through the slideshow above to get an inside look.
11:30 am: My production team, Dizon Inc., arrives on-site first to start organizing. They have produced MILLY fashion shows for years so they’re total pros and can handle anything.
11:45 am: Backstage catering arrives. This year, Le Pain Quotidien sponsored our backstage lunch, which will get devoured by the crew soon enough.
12:00 pm: The models, makeup, hair and nail teams arrive on-set at Lincoln Center. It’s organized chaos! Hair, makeup, and nails are hugely important to my show - every detail matters, so it takes a lot of time to perfect the look on each model. (DIYs to come…)
1:00 pm: I arrive, and quickly get my hair and makeup done by Kevin and Romy while I prepare my notes for backstage interviews. This season, I was inspired by a recent trip Tokyo to modernize the traditional notion of femininity.
1:30 pm: Backstage interviews start—I have a full schedule, but I love walking everyone through the collection personally. It’s the first time anyone outside of my team has seen it, a big moment.
2:00 pm: Time for shoe rehearsal. The models walk in 5 inch custom-made Manolo Blahniks with hundreds of people watching—you can imagine why we need a rehearsal…
2:15 pm.: The models are dressed in their first looks, and I can’t wait to see the collection come to life.
3:00 pm: SHOW TIME!
In case you missed the show, watch it here! If you’re in the mood to do some shopping, check out our new Shocking Pink trend shop. 1 year ago
