Today was our second day at New York Fashion Week and we were backstage with Runa Ray, a designer our graduates have worked with a number of times, this season seeing the designer’s runway show at The Gallery at The Dream Downtown, a famous venue in the meatpacking district of Manhattan.
Our graduates arrived at the venue at mid day, allowing them to have travelled to the venue after having lunch and looking a lot more awake than at some of the shows starting at 8am! Once they got to the venue they watched the demonstration by the lead artist before setting up at their stations and getting ready to start work on their models.
Runa Ray’s clothes are exquisitely made and are always very fresh and beautiful, especially when its Spring/Summer, therefore the team set about creating makeup that matched that, creating glowing skin with the twist of adding a little green or pink to the lower lashline.
This was a very high end show and the results were flawless as you’ll see from the images below, once done the team were heading straight to the next show amongst the hustle and bustle of New York Fashion Week!
