Backstage @ Georges Hobeika Spring 2011 Couture

Yesterday I attended the Georges Hobeika Spring 2011 Couture presentation.

I was invited backstage so decided to experience what life is like behind the scenes.

You’ll be surprised to learn that it’s wasn’t as hectic as you would imagine.

Everyone knows what they are doing, the models eat the catering provided and there aren’t any diva tantrums.

Whilst getting their hair and make-up done, the models all wore bathrobes with ‘Georges Hobeika’ is silver embroidery stitched on the back.

From hair and make-up the model move onto their dressers who are dwarfed by the Amazonian models.

Once changed into their second looks the models have plenty of time to pose for pictures and dance around to the music playing the background.

The most attention was paid to the finale model who wore the most elaborate gown I have ever seen up close.

She was pampered like a true bride.

It took a about 8 people to lower her into the stunning strapless tulle embellished gown.

When she had the gown on the room seemed to fall silent as everyone collectively sighed in admiration.

The collection was called “Maiden of the Deep” which explains the sea stone grey, lilac and beige colour palette and fossil-like shaped embellishments and details.

    I love the final gown, it makes me think of ghostly coral reefs, I also love the very appropriate title of the collection, ‘Maiden of the Deep’ – it really feels like he has been inspired by the textures of various sea creatures – lovely!
