On the Hunt in NYC: Backstage at Derek Lam and Zombie boy
Estée Lauder invited us backstage before the Derek Lam show. We got the opportunity to ask the make-up artists some questions, to see the make-up artist working and to interview Tom Pecheux, creative make-up director for Estée Lauder. An amazing experience.
A glimpse of all the products. Impressive right?!
Tom told us during a short interview about the looks, the used the products, the inspiration, the way they used the products and the effects. More about this interview will follow in an extensive review. We were surprised about the use of the make-up products. The fact they use eye shadow for the lips instead of a lip product, to create a matte and natural effect.
A snapshot during the show. We were excited about the show, because of our backstage visit. It’s so different to watch a show after visting backstage. To see the models, to get a glimpse of the collection, to see the designer, the make-up artists, to feel the energie. We really liked the collection. The combination between arts and crafts, the fading and bleding of two different colours and the combination of different materials.
Some streetstyle photographers bring a whole studio to the streets to make that perfect picture. a
When walking to the next show we passed by the street market of Hell’s Kitchen.
The show of male fashion designer Asher Levine was on a boat and the pier next to it. A spectacular show with a special performance during the show of up and coming rapper LE1F with Don Jones featuring Mess Kid.
After the show of Asher Levine we met Rick Genest, a.k.a. Zombie boy. You might recognize him from the campaign and show of Thierry Mugler and the videoclip of Lady Gaga.
Hunter Niels goes bananas.
We went dinner according to the new trend in the States ‘Organic’. In Greenwich we found this very cute italian place with amazing organic food. Hunter Niels got here the best compliment of the day, he had to show his ID to order a glass of wine.
