Adam Selman F/W 2014

Adam Selman- Fall-Winter 2014 006

Before every fashion week, I scour the internet searching for new designers to feature on this blog. Pouring through “designers to watch” lists, checking for interesting looking brands on instagram, and googling every unknown name on the fashion calendar is regular procedure for me.

One designer that caught my eye –based on the bright disco inspired eye makeup his models wore for the SS14 show– was Adam Selman. The clothes? Just as eye catching. And then I discovered he was Rihanna’s costume designer and friend. Yes, that Rihanna. Soon it all made sense.

Backstage, bright colors and playful patterns of the FW14 collection once again commanded my attention. I always personally prefer bright, fun, or edgy makeup on models (neutral beauty at a fashion show is boring!), and this show did not disappoint.

One of the first things I noticed: The nail art. Or rather, finger art:

An updated take on a french manicure, Nailing Hollywood nail artist Madeline Poole painted half of each nail with Chanel Nail Colour Polish in Black Satin. The henna inspired finger art was drawn on using Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black.

Hair stylist Duffy, using ORIBE products, created a loose, Snoop Dogg inspired braid to compliment the 1990’s slant of the collection.

Spring 2011 Fashion and Editorial Internships

I’ve been taking it easy and focusing a bit more on my personal life since fracturing my foot late last month. But I’ve managed to find a bunch of awesome spring internship opportunities to share with you. As I always say, for anyone trying to break into the fashion or publishing industries, interning is THE BEST way. Do as many as you can, as early as you can! I got my start in the magazine industry by doing an internship, and got a freelance editing job about a month after it ended.

Don’t forget to follow the application instructions. : )
