Photographing Backstage with Watson x Watson at MBFWA.

I was privileged last week to photograph backstage at the Watson x Watson fashion show, part of the Mecedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, or, #MBFWA; yes much easier.. While there were quite a few models walking in the show and most were from IMG, some including Madison Stubbington arrived somewhat later having had to rush over from a previous show; for these models this meant an intensive time with the teams from Redken for hair and Curtis Collection doing make up with very many hands working together to have the models ready to go. Must say the models were all a sea of calm in a maelstrom of activity! And the action never stops with, the hair and make up teams following the models all the way to the runway providing final touch ups on the go. All detailed in my photo essay below; I hope you enjoy it; I had a great time! Mouse over pictures for details.
