NY FASHION WEEK 2007 - Backstage at Betsey Johnson's Spring 2007 Show


Dear Bagistas,

BagTrends went back stage at yesterday's Betsey Johnson show to see why a 10-minute show takes over 3 hours to produce.

As I walked inside I was overwhelmed by the frantic pace of models scouring around getting their hair and makeup done. Each model had a makeup artist and about 2 people doing her hair. Then they rush off to put on their first outfits, which have been prepared by a stylist. Oh, and each lucky gal has a personal dresser helping them during the show!

In addition to models, makeup artists, stylists and a DJ (yes, it's a party back there), there are about 75+ reporters, TV personalities and camera-crew people walking about trying to get some scoop.

Things got really crazy when Betsey Johnson herself walked out to do interviews for the Style Network, E!, Extra and others. Naturally, I was there taking notes and pictures.

As I walked out to take my seat, I uttered the following into my recorder: “Seriously, that was the coolest thing I have ever done!”

do you request fashion show invites or the fashion houses just send them to you?

Hey chic inspector,

Normally we request them. Some fashion houses send them to us without requests (usually those are the ones that bag big bag divisions, so we work with them all year around).

PS Stay tuned as fashion season starts Feb 2 :)!!

Have a bag-a-licious day!
