A MOUSE AT THE FASHION WEEK PART 2

I think I overestimated myself regarding the time I’d need to finish this post! I am really happy to give you the second and last-but-one part of my trip with Gemey-Maybelline. The last post will be a video because I thought it would be good to show you the moving city and the craziness in the backstage...

 I think that what I love the most it the effervescence of the last moment. Some times ago I experienced the sleepless nights before a fashion show. It was at Yves Saint Laurent, on the men Studio, and despite it being so difficult and so exhausting, it was one of these moments where you feel like you’re part of something, of a team, of a small piece of their history. I have magical memories of the OFF side of the fashion show with the designers and the ADs that made the looks again and again as if they were saving the world, passionate and hard liner, over the phone until the last minute... And what a satisfaction when models are coming back and it’s over...

 It was my first fashion shows and backstage as a «guest» and I wanted to ask whether I could help anyone... Ha ha ha I’m not even kidding. But I was there only to be regaled in the show of theses women and men behind the scene that dance, run and handle last minutes micro disasters... This really was something !

 I promised to you the secret of the street style... So I have to tell you... For me street style photographers were like hunters, with their camera always ready to draw, on the lookout for the amazing silhouette that would stand out from the crowd... A colorful look, an incredible hat, an accumulation of necklaces... But when I was waiting for the Diane Von Furstenberg show, I saw it: the horde of overdressed girls with too much make-up and hairstyle, getting out of the cabs and posing in front of the entrance waiting for a camera to catch them. Unbelievable. There are the ones doing as if nothing had happened, putting up a front like being on the phone and there are the ones fully accepting it and stringing together postures worthy of Vogue... A miraculous catch ? Hell no ! It’s a fishing trip where everyone gets something...

 This trip was also about meeting and I met a great girl, Hana Mey! She blogs and she just established a stunning online magazine HEARTY that I’d highly recommend... Hana made us discover her New York City and precisely her favorite Soho/Nolita/East village, and I am giving you some of her fav addresses...

 It was crazy ! I hope your weekend went well...
