Backstage At Isabel Marant Fall/Winter 2019

Today for Lookbook Friday we are getting a glimpse of the madness that goes on behind the scenes before a fashion show. And we are joining Isabel Marant backstage as she prepares for the Fall/Winter 2019 show. I love getting a peak of what it takes to prep for such an event. You learn a lot about the industry and are acutely aware of all the hard work involved in creating a line and then putting on such a large scale production. It is not all glitz and glamor, and it is not easy.

I discovered the Loic Prigent channel on YouTube a few months ago, and have been watching it quite a bit. It allows me to practice my French and get a more in-depth view of the current fashion industry.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this video and appreciate Isabel Marant’s fun but brusque get to point personality. So refreshing in the era of fake news. Some people describe the French as rude, but being a New Yorker I find their “to the point” mindset favorable to the “lets pretend everything is great” view point you often find in the States.

I hope you enjoy!

    I find Isabel Marant’s personality to be quite refreshingly and I like how she keeps it real. It’s always fun to get a look backstage as well as some insight into a designer’s creative process. I just picked up 2 Isabel Marant Etoile pieces on sale recently.

    Isabel Marant always does some really dope things- I love the boho vibe woven into every collection! And getting to get a peek at what it takes to put on a show is so cool!

    These kind of videos make me even more eager to make it to fashion week one day and be part of that energy.
    Love it!

    Love watching backstages too, almost more inspiring and cool than the runway itself! This is one of my fave brand, so great and fun to see! xo

    Love love love this vid so much, Allie! I’m such a huge Isabel Marant fan. She’s just so laid back and cool and you can totally see it in the vid. Her collections are always amazing, and now, I want that patchwork print jacket:D
    I’ve never seen Loic’s vids before. He’s hilarious…so French:D “As silky and elastic as her morals”…I die!
    PS Gigi seems so carefree here compared to Kaia.

    I love the different designs that are out in backstage! It is so cool to see some backstage previews of what goes in – it’s crazy! Isabel is such a sweetheart. I can definitely see the culture difference between NY and CA – I like being straight to the point. Thanks for sharing!

    It was lovely seeing this video, not just for clothes but for Isabel’s personality as well. She’s got such a great personality and energy! What is more she really translates all that energy into her designs. I love her philosophy of a travelling girl but sophisticated….and that dress one can sleep in sounds fab! The accessories are insane, especially the ‘Spock’ earrings.

    So cool to see the hustle and bustle and excitement before a show!

    Very good

    I watched the video half way and she seems so down to earth, approcahable and just real! And she has a sense of humour to boot too!

    Quite intriguing! I watched the video and love how she said that Berber jewellery inspires her. [1:40-1:42] It is exciting to see that she drew influences from North Africa – Morocco is such a mosaic of cultures, tribes, influences. Overall, I must say that planning and organizing fashion shows are not easy in the least. – http://www.jamilakyari.com

    Oh, how wonderful you discovered this as Isabel Marant belongs since years to my favourite brands. For example I have a ruffled mini skirt from this brand I’m wearing in summer practically on a daily base 🙂

    Isabel Marant has become one of my favorite brands ever since I first bought a pair of white sneakers from their store! You must have had a lot of fun there!
