These photographs are from my NYFW AW18 experience in February. I was on the production team for the À Détacher show which was such a cool experience. The makeup for the show was magical. The colors of the eyeshadows were vibrant and looked like they has been painted on with watercolors. The AW18 collection was so chic and very much prêt-à-porter.  

The biannual Libertine show is always an event I look forward to! This season did not disappoint. The collections keep getting better and better every show. While staying true to brand with sequins, bold colors, embroidery, and nail art like you have never seen, Libertine continues to be innovative and fun. While working as a lead dresser backstage it is always so fun getting to know the models and the Libertine team. There was so much positive energy and color bouncing around backstage, I felt as if I was wearing KiraKira glasses with all of the sparkling embellishments. 

My last show for the week was Esteban Cortazar's AW18 show! A few days prior to the show I was put in charge of VIP dressing for the show. I loved being able to assist with styling our VIP clients. The Esteban Cortazar team is so special; they are so talented. After helping the guests find their seats, I was able to sit front row at the show. I was gushing over each piece that came down the runway. Esteban's collection was inspired with the perfect mix of elegant and cool. I really appreciated the mixture of fabrics and the strong color combinations. The Esteban Cortazar show was the perfect way to end fashion week.
