CHROMAT FALL/WINTER 2015

CHROMAT Fall-Winter 2015 069

CHROMAT is undoubtedly one of the most interesting brands showing at NY Fashion Week. Their shows are never just ‘models walking down a runway’. They’re a unique spectacle, showcasing some of the most innovative, and architectural clothing of the week. Who else uses glowing LCD lights strapped onto models’ clothing, and foreheads? No one.

Designer Becca McCharen keeps things fresh by reimagining and reinterpreting Chromat’s original cage lingerie and body garments in new ways each season. For fall, that included the addition of feathers, 3d printed jewelry, and more swimwear.

AMMERMAN SCHLÖSBERG FALL/WINTER 2015: BACKSTAGE

Ammerman Schlösberg Fall-Winter 2015- Backstage 011

I was only allowed backstage at the FW15 Ammerman Schlösberg show for a few brief moments. But that small window of time was enough for me to see that the shows hair and makeup were likely to be one of the most unusual beauty looks of the season.

Mark Carrasquillo and the SEPHORA PRO team created the look, which was inspired by the clothing collection’s “Furry Hospital” theme. Featuring pale skin, glittery smokey eyes, and on some models– fake blood.

ERIN FETHERSTON S/S 2013

ERIN FETHERSTON S-S 2013 005

Back on the very first unofficial day of NYFW, I stopped by backstage at Erin Fetherston’s S/S 2013 show. While I sadly couldn’t stay for the presentation (I had to dash uptown to another show!), I got to spend some time learning about the girlish, fun Brigitte Bardot inspired look.

Kérastse’s Odile Gilbert took the Bardot inspiration and “toughened it up” with a (working!) zippered headband. Bangs were parted to the side, then twisted back into the zipper’s opening.

To get the look: Hair was prepped with Kérastse Mousse Volumative to add body. Hair was then curled into loose waves using a large barrel curling iron. After securing hair with the headband, the look was finished with Double Force Hair Spray, and a small dollop of Elixir Ultime Rose Milleanaire on the ends.

MAC lead makeup artist Lyne Desnoyers was inspired by photos Erin showed her, shot by photographer Ellen von Unwerth. In response, she created a “neo-cat eye” tailored to the shape of each models’ eyes. The look was thick on the upper lash line, while gently blended on the bottom.

To get the look: Skin was perfected with MAC Cosmetics Pro Concealer Palette, and Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation. A mix of Cream Colour Base in Pearl, and Luna were used to highlight cheekbones. With Skinsheen Bronzer dusted over the face to give the models a warm glow. Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline was used on upper lids for the cat eye, with the lower lashes finished with Carbon eye shadow. The lip color was a custom blend of orange, white, and nude Lip Mix.

The finished look:

Erin wanted nail art that complimented the clothing, but that would also serve as an additional “accessory”.

Butter London’s Katie Hughes painted nails in two shades: “Lillibet’s Jubilee”, a metallic violet-silver, and “The Full Monty”, a metallic gold.

KATIE GALLAGHER S/S 2013: BACKSTAGE

Katie Gallagher SS13 Backstage 34

Any longtime readers of my blog know that Katie Gallagher is a favorite designer of mine. One of the most avant-garde and risk taking young designers currently working in NYC, I’ve seen her grow in both talent and popularity over the past few years. (Her second ever show was one of the first presentations I ever photographed.) Not only does she have talent in spades, she’s also incredibly sweet too.

This season, Katie’s collection was entitled “Everything Forever”. It“is inspired by the concept of rebirth and purity…an ode to the remnants of our past, which are ingrained in us and ever-present. Despite infliction, the soul can remain pure. However, everything we do is in us forever.” — via the show’s line sheet

LOUISE GOLDIN S/S 2013:

LOUISE GOLDIN S-S 2013 034

Rekden Creative Consultant Guido is known for inventing some of the most edgy, trendsetting, and beautiful fashion week looks at fashion shows worldwide. Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs are just two of the major brands that regularly showcase his genius.

The Spring 2013 Louise Goldin show featured one of the most unusual hair styles of the week. Guido described the look as “manga/cartoony, slightly spooky” “Sleepy Hollow” inspired”, and “slightly gothic”.

“We’re always speaking so much about wearable styles, but we have to remember that fashion after all is also an art – and this look is all fantasy.I really saturated the hair in product, let it dry and then pulled out the left front section of the ponytail and pulled it across the face and eyes. I think of emerging branches, or like a mask of hair over the face that has a very haunted, ‘spinderly’, maybe even Tim Burton-esque feeling. These certainly are not sweet little girls.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Calla S/S 2013

CALLA S-S 2013 002

CALLA’s Spring 2013 presentation was one I ended up accidentally stumbling upon during Saturday night of NYFW at Milk Studios. And boy, was I glad I found it— the collection ended up being one of my hands down favorites of the S/S ’13 season.

Both the floral and more abstract watercolor prints were absolutely phenomenal, and the unexpected polka-dot eye makeup (which I will SO be DIYing soon) took the entire look to the next level.
