Not everyone gets to walk in a Fashion Week show like Gossip Girl‘s Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), but it doesn’t mean you can’t go behind the scenes!
In the TRESemmé Style Setters video series, 90210′s Shenae Grimes gets an all-access pass to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, taking you backstage where the hair stylists, makeup artists, and models are working with the fashion designers to ensure that the runway show comes together perfectly.
“Being backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is absolute mayhem, but the best kind of mayhem possible,” Shenae said about her experience. She hung out with Jeanie Syfu, lead MBFW stylist, to see what the real secrets are to getting the right look.
“To have the perfect hair going down the runway, what you need is a professional team, good products and a great model,” Jeanie said.
Whether you want to go to Fashion Week as a model, designer, stylist, or just to observe, it’s quite the experience. Shenae is still talking about hers: “It is so cool to see the collections before they’re walking down the runways backstage, and being walked through by the designers themselves. I’ve seen footage of these runway shows my whole life basically, so to get that kind of preview is pretty mind-blowing. It’s always been a dream of mine to be front row at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week so I feel very lucky. “
