After climbing a looong entrance to the photo-spot Industria Gallery/Studios....we discovered a very calm quiet backstage scene for the Italian label HACHE's RTW show...
|Italians-getting in a smoke, pre-show|
Calm and waiting-(six models late), the make-up/hair staff seemed very relaxed when we were there...giving us a chance to leisurely take some pics.
MAC Pro did the glistening, dark smoky eyes---a nod to the 90's grungy skateboarding scene-the inspiration for the show's ensembles. The rest of the face was kept natural looking-barely there foundation, rosy cheeks, rose pinks pouts with dab of gloss. Kinda like the look one would get if 18 years old and waking up with the yesterday's eye make-up-now smudged on.

|Nails were a pale pink|
Hair-had that second (or third day) look-with a slight wave or stringy straight----flattened on top "like a dead bird picked off the street." That's a quote---but we got it...flat, like road kill. Shiny hair though---not greasy.
|uplight-banishes any shadows---|
|tinted rose gloss on lips...slight rose blush on cheeks---subtle and glowing|

|Tube dress of gold metallic leather with embossed neoprene short sleeves|
|embroidered dragon on a top|
|Prince of Wales plaid hooded rain jacket---with silver inner coated lining|
|instructions from the stylist....not left to chance|
Footwear was probably a relief for the models---in a nod to slip-on skate shoes...wide strap sandals and embroidered sneakers....
