A SWAT Team of makeup artists, stylists, and entourage took over Levi’s studio/gallery and converted it into a dressing room. Doors to the fashion show officially opened at 9pm, but visitors could take a peek a few hours before as garments were finished and models prepped. Levi’s team included Almog, Sascha Ascher, Tamira Cahana, Joe Madeo, Linda Mason, Reiko Okusa, Hikaru Otsu, Kelly Tabone, the gorgeous girls of Ikon Model Management, and guest model Oksana Baiul.
