Once reserved for industry insiders, the monthly fashion calendar has evolved into a social media spectacle far beyond the glossy pages of magazines. From New York to Paris, musicians, actors, artists and influencers alike have been the catalysts for that fashion revolution, often sharing a glimpse of front-row glamor in real time to millions of followers.

The culmination of months of development and creativity reaches fever pitch in the 48 hours leading up to a show. From casting to the styling, collections often come together in the final hours before they are unveiled to the world. A crucial part of this vision is the direction created by a show’s hair stylists and makeup artists.

Working alongside renowned hair stylist Guido Paulo and his team for more than three years, Aude-Andre Gbazi has seen it all. For the Spring/Summer 2024 season, Gbazi captured candid moments backstage at Fendi, Miu Miu, Loewe, Dior and Prada. Discover her exclusive photo diary for GOAT below.

Loewe's SS24 collection debut was inspired by the ’60s. This was reflected in the show's hair styling, featuring wet ponytails with a side part and hair extending down the sides of the face.
