Before I cross the pond for LEE S/S 2014 collection coverage, I’ve culled my favorite and unforgettable behind-the-scenes photos. Sure, it’s great to look at the beautiful clothes on the runway, but the true fun and hard work of Fashion Week goes on backstage, with designers, stylists, models and make-up artists running around to make the show seem effortless and easy once it’s on. From the front row, at least, there seems to be no indication of the months of hard work and sleepless nights, nor the inevitable madness brewing behind the catwalk.
I got to work with LEE as one of the stylists for the fourth consecutive time already. A lot of sourcing, cleaning, packing and organizing were done. Getting to interact in every task and process has taught me how much hard work goes into prepping for a show (yes honey, working in the fashion industry isn’t all that glam). I’m glad that it’s over and all the hard work put in really paid off! I always enjoy working with the LEE team because they’re a fun (and funny!) bunch of creative people who are deeply committed to their passion. Work doesn’t feel like work when I’m with them.
