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.

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!

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!

While I was in New York City I made it a priority to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met) while I was there, since I had never gone before. I finally visited near the end of my stay in the city. As someone who considers fashion and beauty to be art, I realized while walking around the galleries that my entire trip in NYC was very artistically driven.
That’s why I was especially excited about covering backstage beauty at Alon Livne, since I was invited to attend the presentation as well. Being able to see the clothes and how they work in harmony with the beauty is always a highly visual, aesthetic experience.

Ever since I had seen celebrities like Lana del Rey and Rihanna wearing stiletto nails I had been dying to get them myself. The only thing stopping me was the question of the practicality of wearing the trend in real life.
But while I was in New York for Fashion Week this past weekend, I couldn’t help myself from taking the plunge after seeing more than a few pointy-shaped nails around town. I’m not one to shy away from the bold or the trendy, and since it was NYFW, I figured, why not?
