Day 3: Backstage at Masha Ma
Do you know that effect in music videos, where the artist stands still in the middle while the blurred city moves around her? That’s what it’s like to be backstage before a catwalk show. Well, you get shuffled around a lot with the activity so add a bit of a market aspect to it too. Pieces getting steam-pressed for the last time, the final touches of make-up on the models… and the designer, bouncing around station to station throwing a nod or a shake. In the case of Masha, she seemed to have no pre-show jitters despite the show being her debut, looking exhausted yet calm – you could see she had all the confidence in her collection. Indeed, the show was a massive success!
