WHO: Kim Ovitz
WHAT:Spring 2011 Collection
WHERE: 9/9/10 Milk Studios

Backstage at Kim Ovitz, I was found one of the calmest pre-show environments I encountered all week. Models sat in wooden chairs, texting away as their hair and makeup were prepped.

The makeup team, led by Luc Bouchard for MAC was inspired by the geometric shapes of Ovitz’s collection. Faces, lips and eyebrows were bare. Black triangles were painted in the corner of eyes using MAC paintsticks.

Hair was styled by Marco Santini, of Ion Studios, and his team. First, hair was flat ironed, and then brushed back and hair sprayed.

It was then woven in place using plastic thread.

The presentation itself was held in one of Milk’s larger studios to accommodate the large geometric stage the models stood in.
