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

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?
