MBFWA 2012 Aurelio Costarella Backstage12:00 PM
Day 2 in Sydney had me wondering the streets aimlessly looking for
sydneys new labels and stores that had been never heard of in Melbourne.
After finding a few stores (posts on them below) i decided to head down
to Circular Quay and get ready to help out for the show. After nearly
getting lost i made my way down to one of Sydney most prestigious
landmarks. I got there half an hour before call time so i decided to get
a coffee, read up on my fashion finds and just enjoy the magnificent
After trying to find the perfect filter for my new Instagram picture (took way long then i hoped) quickly sipped my cold coffee and headed to the 'tent' where the show was being held.
|The tent Where MBWFA 2012 took place|
I saw Aurelio and His team waiting at the entrance at the back and found his Brand manager Paul who was the one gave me all the details about the show. They said hi and introduced me to two amazing ladies who were also working backstage and had been helping Ray with the collection. As we walked backstage passed hair and make up we saw the Mayhem of everyone trying to clean up and clear out of the show before us which was Camilla. I remember Camilla's collection from my time in Brisbane MBFW so i wasn't surprised seeing burst of bright colors as we walked in. After a couple of minutes after i got my backstage pass & backstage was ours and we began to start work.
|My pass :)|
I was helping the two ladies who were in the team they were ironing and steaming everything soon as we got everything out of the plastic. I seriously fell in love with everything as soon as i saw it.
|This was my favorite|
|heaviest dress i have ever carried.|
After volunteers came in and after that models with hair and make up fully done. Everyone got into their dresses, only 3 girls had a 2nd outfit changed so the mayhem backstage would of been tamed to melbournes fashion week and 5 or so changes.
We had this inside joke about the dress Isa was wearing as it was really hard to iron/steam and then we found a mascara mark on it.Then When models came to wear the dresses, That dress was still on the hanger when me n the one of the ladies were helping them all get dressed. The dress was beautiful. it looked amazing on the runway it was just all the pre work that made it funny. The most funniest part was when all the dresses were being packed up. They had sticky notes with all the models names and guess which one was on the ground...Isa's name we couldn't stop laughing.
