Cynthia Rowley's thoughtful designs and bold beauty looks dominated the Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week runways. The designer is pretty legit—legit enough to have some of the industry's top models strut down the catwalk in her designs. Rowley told us she's had Gisele Bundchen, Karolina Kurkova and Tyra Banks walk in her shows before!

Like always, we were intrigued at how Cynthia uses her talents to create such a show. Her shows always look flawless, but apparently the atmosphere is different behind stage.

"Backstage is always chaotic and let’s just say when Lindsay Lohan is thrown into the mix, it takes it to a new level," says Rowley. 

Lucky for the fashion-obsessed, she even shared her Fashion Week Survival Guide.

"The most important thing is to stay healthy in the weeks leading up to a show, so I drink Juice Press juices, exercise whenever possible, lots of hand washing with Lysol Touch of Foam and a daily dose of funny YouTube videos to de-stress," says Rowley. 

Speaking of Lysol, Cynthia is expanding her design expertise, but she's lengthening her name to something that you won't hang up in your closet. The fashion designer has partnered up with Lysol Touch of Foam soap and will be taking part in a custom label contest

The winner will also win a trip to New York City for Fall 2013 Fashion Week and a $5000 shopping spree. If Cynthia's design elements for the soap are anything like her clothes, it's definitely worth looking into.
