KAREN WALKER S/S 2016

Karen Walker impresses me season after season with her fun, quirky take on clothes that are– gasp!– actually wearable. While I love avant garde fashion, or flowing gorgeous ballgowns as much as the next girl, it’s nice to see impeccably designed clothing that is suitable for everyday wear, and affordable.

The fact that designs some of the best sunglasses around also helps.

And like many of my other favorite designers, Karen has fun with her collections’ themes and inspiration. For Spring, that inspiration was “life in Zvedzny Gorodok, AKA Star City” in the Soviet Union. Once a secret city where Soviet astronauts lived, little details such as spate suite-esque zippers, utilitarian garments, and star shaped earrings helped visualize that inspiration.

The Sephora PRO team translated the astronaut/space theme into a glam look, featuring an enchanting blue eye.

KAREN WALKER F/W 2013: BACKSTAGE

Karen Walker F-W 2013-019

Karen Walker’s show is always one of the most fun and upbeat shows of every NY Fashion Week. Backstage, the atmosphere is no different: models are happy, smiling, and enjoying themselves, posing in the gorgeous clothes, and absolutely amazing sunglasses Karen comes up with, season after season.

Sadly, this season I overbooked myself (a lot!), and Monday, the day of Karen’s show, I ended up in a bit of a time crunch. But I still managed to spend some time backstage, photographing the equally fun makeup, and tousled, beachy hair.

Karen Walker S/S 2012

Karen Walker Spring 2012-14

Karen Walker’s collections expertly toe the line between girly and tom-boyish, interjecting bright, quirky prints that keep things fresh season after season.

For her Spring show’s nail art, Karen wanted a color that screamed “summer”. CND lead nail tech Wanda Ruiz created a custom lemon-lime sherbert color by mixing 2 existing CND polishes.

7 drops of Blackack were added to the bright yellow shade Bicycle, which was painted onto models’ nails in 2 coats. 1 coat of AirDry Top Coat was applied to finish the look.

Laurent Philippon for Bumble and Bumble created a rock and roll inspired boyish 40’s hairstyle.

Careful to note that this style can be dangerous if it veers into “wedding-ish” territory, the look was slightly disheveled, and meant to be a style that could easily be a “cool girl DIY”. The result was one of my favorite hairstyles of the season!

To get the look:
Hair was sprayed with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray (a favorite product of mine!) at the roots, then blow dried. Surf Spray was misted over the length of the hair to mattify. Hair was then rolled, and secured with bobby pins. Laurent then roughed up the hair using his hands, to create a disheveled look. Hair was finished with a spray of Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder, in corresponding shade to match the models’ hair.

Additionally, a handful of the models’ hair was styled with “do rags” made from Karen’s prints:
