The September shows seem finished yesterday..I can still feel the vibe..and it's already happening again..it's February, it's Milan fashion week.
The worries concerning the crisis affecting the fashion industry generated terrible forecasts and a frightened mood between us "the backstagers" which reminded me of the panic on a child 's face when the parents break the news that the trip to the funfair is cancelled...
But fear not..the show must go on...the telephone starts ringing and everybody is running around Milan, suitecasing all over the place.
I've started my fashion journey with Versace, not the actual show..."only" a presentation, strictly Private, for Mrs A.Wintour!!!
I met up before the call time for a cappuccino with lovely Kristen, who I got to know one and a half years ago, on exactly the same circumstance. We then go to one of the Versace's villas...and meet the rest of the hair and make-up team. The vibe was unusually relaxed, no drama, everybody was lovely! we even had time to take a long lunch break.
The look we created was very natural and clean: Mac face and body for the skin, for a very transparent effect. On the eyes brown eyeliner pencil slightly smudged in the corner and brown mascara.A touch of Taupe (blusher) by Mac on the socket. Taupe again under the cheecks to contour and a touch of 8 hour cream on the lips.
Everything went pretty smooth...the presentation was a success and we were going to be rebooked. fab!
