Recently I was able to take a peek behind-the-scenes with Red Door Spa during the Vivienne Tam Spring 2017 show. If you’ve ever been backstage during New York Fashion Week, then you know that it’s an absolute whirlwind of controlled chaos. There’s such a flurry activity going on and so many models in various stages of readiness that you wonder how they’re going to pull it off in time. Yet somehow, everyone manages to do their part and pull everything together just in time for a few magical moments on the runway. It truly is a sight to behold… just make sure you stay out the makeup artists’ and hairstylists’ way!
As you can see, getting the models ready is clearly a team effort. The Red Door Spa squad had multiple hands on deck to create the perfect hair and nail looks to complement Vivienne Tam’s Space Cowboy Meets Rodeo-themed collection.
The clothes were an interesting mashup of textures and colors done in intricate lace and embroidery. I also noticed a lot of fringe and heavy use of metallics which are both trending for this fall as well. You can view more pictures from the full collection online at Vogue.com.
