Backstage at New York Fashion Week
This September, Amy Freudenberg hit New York Fashion Week, a top event in the world of style, working behind-the-scenes at the Nautica Men’s Spring 2013 Fashion Presentation. Held on the rooftop of the iconic Empire Hotel in Lincoln Center, the new Nautica collection contained 30 looks in vibrant colors, designed for today’s stylish but classic man. Amy and Michelle worked as part of the hair team, creating hair styes designed to complement the fashions being presented.
Here’s more from Amy Freudenberg:
How did you receive this opportunity?
AF: “I made contact with the hair and makeup team coordinator via my networking on Facebook. I was invited to work alongside the team for the event.”
What types of looks did you create?
AF: “The fashion show coordinators had a very strong vision for the looks they wanted us to style. They were highly focused on the concept of the classic, well-groomed man. Most of our styles were simple, timeless men’s hair looks.”
What was your favorite part of the experience?
AF: “Getting to see a new fashion collection before it was released to the public was a major thrill. But the best part was meeting the other amazing stylists on the team!”
