Whilst the squeaky clean surface of Fashion Week is all glamour and preened-to-perfection models, behind the scenes it’s sometimes a little more cattle market than couture. Running between shows in 5inch heels, the effects of last night’s post-show party carefully concealed under a good few layers of make up and a handful of aspirin, whilst trying to maintain some semblance of stylishness is, well, pretty stressful stuff. (Cue teeny tiny violins)
Thankfully, this year our prayers were answered when The Show Space set up pre-fashion week pampering event, Re-Treat. Hopefully the fist of many, this two day beauty clinic hosted the likes of Maybelline New York, L’Oreal, KeraStraight, St Tropez and of course our good selves, at a series of pop-up pampering stations set across the Red Bull Studios in London. All designed with the runway in mind, the long list of treatments on offer included anything and everything you could possible need to get fashion week ready, from beautifully sculpted brows (of course), to ultra-glossy locks, perfectly painted nails and just back-from-the-beach tans.
Bring it on Fashion week; we’re well and truly ready!
