NYFW: A Beauty Like Nun Other – Backstage at Thom Browne Fall/Winter 2014

Thom Browne Nun look

If there’s one thing we can count on from Thom Browne, it’s a lot of drama and originality and this show was no exception.  The collection was a visual hymn of Victorian-inspired garments imparted with exaggerated proportions and more delicately concealed details than the walls of a confessional.  Inspired by a darker, wicked woman of the church, the hair and make-up production backstage was much more than a sisterly act.

NYFW: The Backstage Beauty at Thom Browne Fall 2013

Thom Browne Fall 2013

The third floor of Center 548 could have been mistaken for the dressing rooms of a major theatrical production… or maybe that’s exactly what it was. On one side of an intensely long arrangement of tables was the Bumble and Bumble hair station where fine tooth combs went up and down in harmony building levels of volume that would make Marie Antoinette heights look tame. Across the row, faces were going pale, pretty much porcelain, by an army of MAC make up artists being lead by Sil Bruinsma. Sil took a minute to explain how the look came about for Thom Browne‘s regal collection and the basis was fantasy.
