Just like with Badgley Mischka, I was able to go backstage with Redken as well as see the show. I was able to see a few of the models getting their hair done before the show as well as get a great rundown on the inspiration for the hair. Claudia Li wanted to make sure that the hair was subtle to not distract from her collection which was full of bright, bold colors and full of texture. They worked with each of the models natural hair to slightly enhance it. The hero product was the 12 hour hold but many of the other Redken styling products were used and those were dependent on the models natural hair.
They were shooting the runway lookbook in the morning before the show and that was the main reason why I wasn’t able to capture more coverage of the models getting ready. They closed the backstage area where the collection was so I was unable to get a sneak peek. I did get to watch the final walk rehearsal before the show and some of the models were practicing in the shoes that they wore for the show while others just walked in the shoes they arrived in.
I had a seat in the third row for the show so I was able to get a pretty good view of the collection and runway. I absolutely love the shows in gallery 2 at Spring Studios because the natural light makes it so much easier to really see the collection and capture the collection on my phone. In most cases I’ve found that it is almost harder to get quality images with my DSLR when it comes to runway. The models are walking so fast and it’s hard to shoot around peoples heads and dodge the iPhones that constantly are raised in the air to get a better pic.
I’ve included my favorite looks from the runway. Since my photos don’t really capture the detail I included the professional images as well since that way you can really see everything.
What did you think of the collection? Did you have a favorite piece?
As always, thank you so much for stopping by the blog. I hope you enjoyed the post and full coverage of Claudia Li’s runway show!
