PARIS — For those involved with the Stella McCartney Spring 2014 runway show, Monday began well before sunrise in the French capital. Such was the immensity of production at l’Opéra de Paris that to even come without a country mile of the collection’s 10h00 berth on the calendar, a 07h00 call time was crucial. Alexandra Martynova nevertheless took the call time in stride by drawing on her sketchpad some of the gilded details of the room in which hair and makeup were situated. Alexandra also rather enjoyed the experience of working with the designer, who can be seen in this video snapping an iPhone picture of her in the lineup before the show started. An iOs7 snap after all is quicker than a sketch!
