The hustle and bustle of backstage before a show is a type of energy one cannot replicate. The scene backstage before the Thrift Chic Challenge at Eco Fashion Week was no different. There were so many blowdryers in use you could almost feel a current of hot air rolling through the room. It’s in these final moments before the show that everything comes together.
The team of La Biosthetique looked quite calm considering we were about 45 minutes from show time, likely because they can do this in their sleep they are so talented. They are a force to be reckoned with in the beauty industry, lending their talents behind-the-scenes at various fashion weeks around the globe including Paris Fashion Week and Australian Fashion Week.

Even the stylists that were showing seemed quite calm backstage at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, the gorgeous venue the shows were taking place in. I ushered myself out of the backstage area just before they started seating for the shows, shamelessly grabbing a bag of Be Coconut chips on my way out.
