The eighth and final day of NYFW’s Spring 2017 season was a special day for me, because I got to live out a dream. The dream of finally attending a Marc Jacobs show.
Thanks to my collaboration with Tumblr, I was invited to the show, and was able to photograph some of it from up in the balcony. For those of you who did not know before– I was a member of Tumblr’s SS17 NYFW team, and was sent to photograph many shows on their behalf. (You can read the official announcement here.)
But without further ado, here are my favorite photos from the Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2017 show, which completely blew me away with its beauty:

Backstage at the S/S 2015 Marc by Marc Jacobs show, it seemed as if I was transported back to my high school years in the late 1990’s. With makeup inspired by (the original 1980’s) English Rave scene, and hair by 90’s era Bjork, it’s no wonder why!
Redken’s Guido chose Bjorks’s signature hair knots, redone in a mohawk type style, to transform the models into “tough girls” for the show.
Redken’s Wind Blown 05 was used to add texture to hair. Next, said Guido “I started by taking the hair into four horizontal sections and bringing them into little ponytails at the top of the crown, twisting them down, leaving some ends out and then pinning them with fine pins. Nothing is perfect. The part isn’t perfect, so you get kind of a punky feeling.”
And don’t miss Marc Jacobs new back to school capsule collection, debuting Saturday August 1st!
Jersey Blazers $168
The collection will be available in stores, and at Bloomingdales.com and includes jeans, jean skirts, tees, leggings, and scarves. The collection is aimed at the younger set, but many of the pieces are appropriate for older Marc fans too!
