i know that pretty much anything i write about during nyfw is probably going to be one of my favorites, but i can’t describe how fun and exciting it was to go behind the scenes at rachel antonoff’s spring 2012 presentation. i have gone to her last two shows, and have found them to be the most creative presentations at fashion week, hands down. so when i managed to arrange for photo and video coverage behind the scenes, i was over the moon.
we arrived as the models were getting their hair and makeup done, a la wednesday adams complete with pigtail pleats and smoky eyes. i interviewed the hair and makeup artists from cutler and mac to get the lowdown on the concept before meeting the lovely tennessee thomas, who was djing the event. then we had a chance meeting with mr. wendy, the adorable cat who has been a model in every one of her shows before meeting up with rachel antonoff herself. she even invited her adorable grandparents to see the collection! it was a wonderful time that i will not soon forget and it was a pleasure to be able to work on the video with the totally awesome jon brown, and to share my coverage with you here and on the modcloth blog (scroll down to watch)!
all photos were taken by me.
