Notes from Lagos Fashion Design Week 2014.

2 Comments

Happy Tuesday people,

The most anticipated fashion show in Nigeria was held over the weekend- the Lagos Fashion Design Week was sponsored by GTBank and Maybelline.I attended not as a guest but as a makeup artist , it was all backstage where the magic happened. It was as exciting as ever , only problem was that the earliest time i got home was 11pm  (: .

The amazing team put together by the creative Artistic Director Bimpe Onakoya was revved up and ready to do justice on the model’s faces , it was indeed a great experience as i bonded with other makeup artist , photographers , models etc backstage. Trust me I am still recovering from the exhaustion but i loved every minute of it.

Getting familiar with the products and setting up was a breeze  and with the demonstration of the LOOK each designer wanted , it was almost painless to recreate the look.Other awesome super talented makeup artist i worked with were  lola Maja, Noredia,Oritan,Chichi, Olabisi,Jide, Dave, Stephen, Kayode, Ifeanyi,Ngozi,Tobi,Osaretin,Jumoke, Fatima,Lora,Remi,Mayowa,Evelyn and  Blacky Jumoke ,i miss u guys already.

The lessons i took away from working back stage are listed in no particular order:

Be punctual no matter what.
Be a Team Player
Creativity is highly needed
Maintain Calmness under pressure
Be organized and confident
If you don’t understand the face chart ask questions
Smile often you can never tell when you are being snapped as the backstage was flooded with a lot of photographers and camera men.
Make sure you have fun while you work as well
Keep you personal belongings carefully
Conserve energy when you can
Always wear comfortable shoes and clothes
Always network with everyone
