This week saw our Director Mary return from New York.
With no rest for the wicked, she was straight back into work, meetings, conference calls and, of course, everyone took their turns asking her the all-important question… So what was it like?!
We had seen the backstage photos, videos and photo shoots that Davroe was a part of with the Aussie designers from Fashion Palette, but we wanted to know, what really happens backstage?
Fashion Palette is the Australian contingency of designers who showcased their incredible work to the world on the Fashion Palette New York Fashion Week runways. Sonya and her team at Fashion Palette did an amazing job, as always.
No doubt there is a lot of work that goes into preparing for an event like this, Sonya and her team were all over it, from ensuring designers were ready with their gorgeous gowns, hair and makeup ready to go, models jumping from hair to make up, runway walk throughs, interviews, photos, Snapchat and Instagram posts…
it was all systems go!
Mary and her Davroe Creative team had their work cut out for them making sure all the models had their hair done in time to have make up done, and, most importantly, allowing enough time for the designers to get them dressed and out on to the catwalk on time.
First show was Swimwear/Resort, models were split in two groups, the down style had a middle part and tousled locks, while the up style consisted of a four strand braid looped into a bun.
The second show, Ready to Wear, models again were split into two groups, the down style parted to the left with sleek smooth curls, and the up style was a sleek pony tail with sides crossing over the ponytail, with a soft curl.
Mary took two of her creative team with her from Davroe HQ, and the rest of her marvelous team was sourced from Sydney, Perth, LA and New York via Prema Hair. Wow what an experience for the whole team!
What an extraordinary achievement for an Australian brand, the logistics alone in getting all the supplies over to New York is another story altogether. We, as a company, need to take a moment to thank a few people who made this trip a bit easier.
Thank you to Andrew from Kofer Bags for supplying our team with our Kofer bags – the original hairdressers bag of choice. These bags are designed for hair care and definitely made for smooth transportation of our equipment.
Also a huge thank you to Tracey from EVY Professional , for supplying the gorgeous brushes and styling tools our Davroe Team used to create all the fantastic styles. They were a pleasure to use and we recommend these to anyone looking for quality hair equipment.
It means a lot to us to have these great Australian teams behind us along with your support!
We had a wonderful time, we hoped you enjoyed coming along for the ride, and we look forward to the next time we head to NY.
