Style Talks from Backstage, Front Row and Around Town → Day 4 at NYFW│AW17
A look into backstage with Aveda and how they prepped for the Hellessy show. Two stunning collections put together by AMCONYC: Rack Addik from season 14 “Project Runway” and Ivory Couture with a special performance by Chris Porter. And some Valentine treats around Manhattan with The Mark Hotel.
But first — NYFW style ↓
These looks were worth that awkward moment of ummm…Hi! Can I take a picture of you?
These stylish gems made an appearance at AMCONYC’s show. There’s artist Chris Porter, influencer Mandy Gragg, and hair guru Addam — yes that’s with two dd’s ♥ catch him on Instagram @addamartist.
I love attending NYFW shows — but lately there is so much more fun that happens off the runway. Backstage is one of my favorite places to be. I get to experience the excitement from a raw angle and share it with you!
… here’s a look at day 4 for me ↓
I arrived shortly after the models did, and it was great to see natural faces lining up for hair and make-up. Not going to lie — the strong wind really frizzed up my hair during my short commute — and Aveda was to the rescue! Immediately put me in a chair and Allen worked his magic.
Hellessy is a day-to-evening designer collection focused on the modern philosophy of dressing women whose lives are organized around a need for pared-down elegance that is versatile and thoughtfully constructed.
For the runway → I loved seeing so much diversity among the models. Before they hit the stage, the collection hangs backstage with detailed instructions.
Picked up some hot cocoa and roses from The Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side ♥ And now I’m off to date night with hubby!
