Yesterday I had the pleasure of checking out the up and coming design house:  NAHM.  The line designed by Nary Manivong and Ally Hilfiger (yes, as in Tommy Hilfiger’s daughter) was shown as a presentation at Milk Studios.

The collection itself was very sweet with feminine and retro touches:

But,  thanks to the wonderful Tony Wang of Post.Fashionism,  I had the opportunity to sneak backstage as the show was prepped.

As you can imagine,  this experience was an amazing bustle of energy.  When you watch a show (hopefully) everything goes so smoothly,  it is as though you are aware of nothing more than the clothes being shown.

Of course the reality is much more involved.  There are so many elements that have to be coordinated in order to make sure the final product is near perfection.

Here is a glimpse at some of that action:

Also,  because they are the often-unsung heroes of the fashion show,  I thought I would share some of the people/teams from behind the event:

  •  Production: MHT Productions
  • Styling: Lester Garcia at Total Management
  • Casting: Communa-K Inc.
  • Hair: Jon Reyman for Aveda Advanced Academy
  • Make Up: Nadine Luke and the MAC Pro Team
  • Nails: CND
  • Shoes: The Frye Company
  • Jewelry: Pamela Love

Anything surprise you about the backstage action?  What is your favorite detail?
