K&E: What are the main goals and responsibilities of your team?

Christina: The production team is responsible for the overall production of the show, from backstage production to front of house, model casting, hair and makeup, etc. Prior to the show we work with a lot of different models, and put a lot into organizing runway ready, which is when all of the senior designers present their finished collections to industry professionals. We hold model castings in New York City, which is where we find and cast the right models for day of show. We also work with local salons and makeup artists to develop a theme for hair and makeup.

This year we have a new aspect to the production team, which is hospitality. Hospitality helps to select and work with a panel of judges that decide on the senior design awards. Hospitality also helps to organize the front of house for the day of show.

On the day of show, the team has two separate aspects regarding the actual show production. Lulu and I will direct the show from the front, while a separate group of people call the show from backstage and make sure everything runs smoothly.

The main goal of our team is to produce an amazing show that will showcase the incredible talent and hard work of the senior designers, which they’ve been working on for four years.
