Tom Pecheux-Haider-Ackermann-PFWTom Pecheux backstage at Haider Ackermann Fall Winter 2015.

While makeup artists and hair stylists are typically complimentary about the designers they’re working for, there’s one designer who clearly makes them a little nervous—in a good way.  When an industry veteran like
Tom Pecheux is gushing about working with someone, you take notice. With a boyish grin, he tells me it’s his first time backstage with
Haider Ackermann. “I’ve been dying to work with him for a long time,” he adds. “He’s asked me to work with him in the beginning but I couldn’t because I was always doing another show at the same time. Today I feel like a little kid going to school and learning from the master… I feel like a vampire, ready to suck some fresh blood!”
What’s the number 1 lesson he’s gleaned so far from Haider Ackermann and what’s the story behind the makeup and this Frankenstein-esque bedhead look?
