All Access: Alice + Olivia A/W ’14

Alice + Olivia Fall 2014

To finish off our coverage of NYFW A/W ’14, we have Alice + Olivia! Unfortunately, backstage access to cover the beauty looks was very limited so that by the time I was able to get inside, the models were already leaving to get dressed for the presentation. The good news is that I have photos of the presentation to share, so you can get a look at the beautifully done hair and makeup.

The set was fairy-tale themed and the hair was a dream-like vision of volume that complemented the doll-like makeup perfectly. TRESemme was in charge of the hair while Stila Cosmetics created the makeup look.




All Access: Backstage at Vivienne Tam A/W ’14

Being alone in a big city can be an intimidating experience, but personally I enjoy having the freedom not to have to compromise on my schedule. Walking around NYC and taking the subway or buses was a great experience to do alone for the first time this Fashion Week.

By now, I am much more comfortable recognizing and visualizing where certain places, like Midtown or Soho are. Of course, with covering trends backstage at New York Fashion Week, I knew my way around Columbus Circle and Lincoln Park pretty well. Moving on, check out what beauty trends are upcoming at Vivienne Tam.



All Access: Backstage at Novis A/W ’14

Although New York Fashion Week is hectic, I didn’t stress, just because I felt so fortunate to be there at all! If there was an iota of stress involved, it was only from having to figure out how to navigate Manhattan to get to each show on time.

But I even got that remedied at Novis, where Aveda had set up a little space on the side to provide hand massages using their Stress-fix line. The calming lavender scent and soothing hand massage was like a little oasis of paradise in the busy backstage atmosphere.



All Access: Backstage at Public School A/W ’14

This year was my second New York Fashion Week, so I’m still learning the ropes when it comes to the norms backstage. So seeing male models at Public School was definitely a fun experience, since I had yet to see any backstage before.

Of course, they were getting their hair and makeup done to look as beautiful as the female models, which I had expected. Let’s take a look at the upcoming beauty trends this Autumn!



All Access: Backstage at Tibi A/W ’14

My favorite moments backstage at New York Fashion Week are watching the talented artists transform the models into an image and persona that represents what the designer wants them to project on the runway.

It’s always interesting to see the connection between the fashion and the beauty. Sometimes, I have to admit I don’t see it very easily, but when it clicks, the effect is a beautiful experience. Continuing with our coverage of NYFW, see the beauty looks at Tibi below!
