A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to the Duckie Brown showroom to watch the designers, Daniel Silver and Steven Cox, prep for fashion week. (See post here.) Today was their big show at Industria Studios and for both events I partnered with Conair to host behind the scenes videos.
Backstage was incredibly calm. I'm not sure if it's because it was the first day of fashion week and things were a little slow or if it's because there were more men backstage than woman and they're more of a relaxed species all together.
Cox explained his inspiration came from his recent travels to England and wanted all of the men to look like men, but like English boys. In America, I guess you can say they looked like private school boys. The Conair stylist used their i-Stubble to make sure any facial hair was well groomed, sideburns were trimmed and the back of the guys necks were cleaned up.
Tinted moisturizer was all the men needed on their faces. "It gives the boys super clean skin," Lottie, the lead makeup artist from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. To make it appear extremely sheer, she applied it with a brush and kept thinning it out on the models' faces.
