Stylist Sally Lyndley has put together an amazing guide to producing a runway show. See her first three installments--
Waiting for the show to start is the most agonizing part for me. I will sit in hair and makeup and watch to make sure the models look
Once the show is over, I again give my big hug and kisses to the designer and the design team, my assistant team, models, casting director, the hair stylist, the makeup artist, the producer, the publicist-- everyone! Saying “thank you” to everyone who worked so hard on the show is so important to me. Fashion is a team sport and no stylist could accomplish anything without an amazing team with which to play.
The last part of the show process is reading the reviews. If my client gets amazing reviews across the board, I feel like my job is done. If the reviews are less then stellar, I take a look at what I can be responsible for in the process and how I can improve in the future. Antonio got stellar reviews this season, and we have already been working for the past couple months on the inspiration for the next collection in September.
