MBFW-Swim 2011: Backstage at Mara Hoffman

| July 21, 2010 | 1 Comment

It’s no big deal for my New York bloggers, but this Florida blogger has never been backstage at any Mercedes-Benz fashion show. Which believe it or not, is a bit of a faux pas for a 3-year old beauty or fashion blogger. Needless to say, I was geeked up! I grabbed my assistant Nikki New and off we went to the beautiful Raleigh Hotel in South Beach.

Ahhh….the Cabana Grande where all of the action happens.

I won’t tell y’all how I accidentally went through the Designer’s Check-In. I’ll save that story for another day. Ha!


We made it backstage for Mara Hoffman only to be thrown into the hustle and bustle of hairstylists, models, make-up artists, the designer team and fellow members of the press.

I tweeted away while Nikki New snapped shots of the models getting all dolled up.

I stole a peek at some of the products that the make-up artists were using.

See any of your favorites?

Lovin’ the messy fishbone braids.

And before we knew it, the models had to line up for the pre-walk .

The proud designer watching her work…

It must be amazing to see your vision and drawings come to live like that. We actually missed the official runway walk because of we were watching another show. Check out the piecesĀ  here. Mara Hoffman’s Native American, Indian, African and island inspirations blow my mind. Stay tuned! I’ve got a lot more for you from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim.

    Great post and pics hon. I am looking forward to the rest of your coverage. I never made it to the Sephora event. We got caught in the rain on the beach and after we cleaned up and pulled ourselves together it was almost over. It's ok though, I know you'll brief me! lol :)
