Fashion shows are always fun, but I’m naturally a behind-the-scenes girl. I love seeing the hair and makeup process (new products + trends!), so I was excited to be invited backstage for Day 1 of runway shows at Memphis Fashion Week.
Pavo Salon Spa was over hair, while Feathers Spa (Peabody Hotel) handled makeup. Mary Conley + team handled the runway styling while Lauren Draffin + team styled the freeze models. Here’s a peek at the products and prep work that go into making a show!
Hair + Makeup inspiration for each featured designer. (Sidenote: Tiena showed on Day 2.)
Festival season is almost here so take notes!
The Pavo team at work. You’re working against the clock so up to 3 people could be working on you at one time.
Pretty products from La Bella Donna were used. Those lip glosses + compressed shadows were to die for!
When you’re working in such close quarters, you gotta love your teammates. Fashion + fun go hand in hand!
Must-have frames from Eclectic Eye.
Finishing touches before show time!
Runway Show highlights plus a little city style from Day 1 + Day 2 are up next!
