The Blonds show what is arguably one of the most fun and innovative collections each NY Fashion Week. Season after season, no one else produces such over the top amazing looks, that find a home on red carpets and concert stages around the world.

Preciosa crystals were also featured, along with bondage belts and accessories form new collaborator CreepyYeha.

The Blonds FW18 Backstage 034

This season’s phenomenal nail look from longtime Blonds collaborators CND was inspired by the theme of good vs evil, and “Lucifer as a powerful woman”. Frescos, Red spikes, and studs made frequent appearances, in both the nail art and clothing.

The Blonds FW18 Backstage 009

The outstanding nails featured crystals, spikes, flames, crocodile print, heavenly frescos, CND Shellac Gel Polish, and suede.

“The whole story starts with Lucifer as a female. A strong powerful female, burning in the fire, finding the melted, molten marble, protecting herself with armor, and finding her spikes and her crystals”

The complete show’s worth of nails took the CND team over 400 hours to complete!

KATIE GALLAGHER F/W 2018: SHOW AND LOOKBOOK SHOOT

Katie_Gallagher FW18 LOOK BOOK 005

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of documenting behind the scenes at the look book photo shoot for Katie Gallagher’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection “True Red”.

Katie_Gallagher FW18 LOOK BOOK 002

One of my favorite local designers, and someone I’ve been covering since my first ever season of NYFW, Katie’s designs continue to evolve and impress me more each season.

Katie_Gallagher FW18 LOOK BOOK 001

The clothing featured so many fun details this season. Lace up hats and leg adornments, cut outs, and as always, a lot of mesh and sheer panels.

In February, Katie presented the full collection at Mail Room, in downtown NYC. It was perfectly complemented by the dark, cavernous space. Featuring a set decorated by roses, and vintage candelabras.

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING/SUMMER 2018: BACKSTAGE

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 060

Years ago, I photographed one of Carolina Herrera’s Bridal Fashion Week shows for BRIDES Magazine. And it was one of the most elegant shows I’ve ever attended. The Spring 2018 show was no different.

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 035

Held in the Met Museum (the first time a fashion show has been allowed to take place inside!), the show was gorgeous and magical in a way I haven’t experienced since the final show by the late and great Oscar de la Renta.

Backstage, Morgan Taylor Lead Artist Gina Edwards designed the nail art look, which consisted of an elegant “cloud-like white” nail, created using “Heaven Sent” nail lacquer.

The finished look:

Makeup wise, MAC Cosmetics provided the beauty look, which focused on fresh smooth skin, and a kohl-rimmed eye.

Finishing things off, beauty wise, TRESemmé NYFW Stylist Odile Gilbert presented a “sleek is chic” smooth, straight hair look.

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 010

CAROLINA HERRERA SPRING-SUMMER 2018 018

To get the hair look:
Start by washing hair with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. Generously spray TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray to damp hair, and apply TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Mousse to the roots (before blow drying!). Create a clean center part and blow-dry, use a curling iron to soften the ends and create subtle curve. Take the section of hair (before the ear) on each side and secure underneath the remaining hair with an elastic band at the nape of the neck. To finish, secure the look with TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hair Spray for a neat and even consistency.

Via TRESemmé.

The collection was just as beautiful and elegant as one would expect from Carolina Herrera. Featuring bold, vibrant colors, embroidered gowns, and flirty tulle accents. I would wear almost every one of the stunning dresses presented.

LIBERTINE SPRING/SUMMER 2018: BACKSTAGE

LIBERTINE SPRING-SUMMER 2018 029

Libertine’s NYFW shows are another reminder that yes, there are still SOME designers left showing in New york who take chances, and have fun with their collections and shows.

LIBERTINE SPRING-SUMMER 2018 021

Backstage, lead nail artist Heather Reynosa and the CND Design Lab created another standout, funky look that incorporated aspects of the eclectic “punk couture” collection. The nails were truly “wearable art”.

LIBERTINE SPRING-SUMMER 2018 004

Crystals, fringe, skulls, safety pins, bird heads, dollar signs, venus fly traps, vials of “blood”, and even miniature “pills” decorated the nails, which had been handcrafted over a 3 month period before the show.
