Every season, Chris Benz shows one of my favorite bright technicolor collections of NYFW. This season, I was lucky enough to see his creations first hand, thanks to my friends at Styled On. You may have already seen some of these images in my photo diary. But I thought I’d share even more behind the scenes shots here!
I arrived about an hour and a half before the presentation was scheduled to begin. Most of the models were in the midst of having their hair and makeup done.
Makeup: Daniel Martin for Lancome. Nails: Sunshine Outing for Lancome. Hair: John Ruidant for Redken.
One of my favorite things about being backstage is being able to familiarize yourself with the collection. To see it right in front of you, and even touch it with your own hands. You can miss so much of a look watching it dash down a runway.
Everyone there was gushing over how gorgeous the collection was.
I personally enjoy Chris’ clothing because for spring, it combines the best of retro fashion, with new modern sensibilities. Classic fabrics are updated with bright colors, and florals never look dowdy or out of date. It’s just FUN!
