Backstage @ Badgley Mischka FW - 2024

Beauty photographed backstage at the Badgley Mischka New York Fashion Week Show for Fall Winter 2024 which took place at the Starrett-Lehigh Building on West 26th Street, and was inspired by the  precision and drama of Park Avenue’s  glass towers. “It’s a dance we love to do, of control and extravagance,” said the designers, Mark Badgley and James Mischka.  The hair here,  by Peter Gray and Team, was a classic mid-parted all one length bob, one of the few looks not the knotted ponytail  style in the show.  The makeup, by Mary Irwin, was about the Moody Blues, perfect for this gorgeous blue ruffled floor length dream gown.     To see more fashion, hair and makeup, CLICK HERE
