KATIE GALLAGHER S/S 2016

KATIE GALLAGHER- SPRING-SUMMER 2016 026

Katie Gallagher’s Spring 2016 collection was a love letter to her longtime NYC neighborhood, Chinatown. Featuring “bright colors, bold shapes, and strong aromatic scents that define the culture…” the clothing featured brighter colors this season, such as yellow and red, and plenty of texture.

Backstage, the theme of Chinatown translated into a modern Geisha inspired lip, and an updated chignon, that featured a twisted bun woven with rabbit hair scrunchies. Joseph DiMaggio for DAVINES led the hair team.

To get the look:
1. Prep clean hair with Davines More Inside This Is A Volume Boosting Mousse, distributing evenly from roots to ends.
2. Gather the hair on top of the head into a high ponytail with your hands.
3. Pull the tail through half way to create a loop at the base of the pony, securing with an elastic.
4. Wrap a (fur) scrunchie around the elastic as a base to wrap the tail around.
5. Flatten the loop toward the back of the head to create a half chignon and secure with bobby pins.
6. Use a topsy turvy tool to pull the tail through the fur scrunchie, repeating as many times needed to come to the end of the ponytail, creating a woven effect.
7. Clean up fly aways with Davines More Inside This Is A Medium Hair Spray.
8. Finish the look with NEW Davines More Inside This Is A Shimmering Mist for shine and polish.

Delpozo S/S 2014

Delpozo S-S 2014 -004

Delpozo’s SS14 show, the brand’s second since relaunching the label in 2012, was one of the most breathtaking shows of the season. The best fashion shows, in my opinion, are always those that imbue a sense of magic or whimsy, which this collection had in spades. Leading to it quickly climbing to the top of my SS14 favorites list!

The bright pops of color on the model’s eyes provided a nice contrast to the sweet, dreamy dresses in the collection.

The hair for the show, created by Moroccanoil Artistic Director Antonio Corral Calero mixed volume with sleekness, presenting the look as a smooth ponytail, with heavy volume on top. Hair was both simple, and unique amongst the many looks of SS14.

To get the look: Moroccanoil Treatment was used to prep hair, which was then parted in the middle, flat ironed, and tied off in a ponytail. Hair was then backcombed from middle to ends, about 4″ above the ponytail. To finish, models’ locks were smoothed into a rounded shape and topped off with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.

The finished look:

Inspired by the Corot painting “Gypsy Woman with Tambourine”, and stained glass windows, the clothing was equally as beautiful as the hair and makeup:

The collection, which struck me as at once both old-fashioned and modern, would be just as at home on a red carpet as it would on a woman walking down the aisle at her wedding.

REEM ACRA BRIDAL SPRING 2014: BACKSTAGE

Reem Acra Spring 2014 Bridal- Backstage - 037

One of the best things about photographing bridal market week shows, is that it allows you to plan a million imaginary weddings in your head. Being up close and personal with so many gorgeous gowns, veils, and accessories inspires and endless stream of ideas. I’m now convinced if I ever get married, I’ll never be able to decide on just one dress.

Even if Reem Acra was the sole designer of wedding dresses in the world, choosing just one would still be a difficult task. Gowns in every cut and color were visible in her Spring ’14 collection. Which also featured some of the most unique wedding veils and wraps I’ve ever come across.

Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013

IMG_2051

One of the 8million reasons I love Oscar de la Renta’s shows–they keep me on my toes during the “off-season” from fashion week. Things seem quiet, and them bam! Time for another Oscar show.

Yesterday’s Resort show showcased what I would now say is currently my favorite OdlR collection. Yes, I say that about every collection, but that’s the point! After years of designing, the man understands the true meaning of perfection. And when you can create something new and inspiring, and re-invent yourself 5+ times a year, you are in my opinion, a true design genius.

I always know when I truly love a collection when it decimates my vocabulary skills. Suddenly, I forget all adjectives but gorgeous/beautiful/pretty/amazing and start repeating myself like some sort of fashion-crazed parrot, who has just learned to speak.

But truly, the show *was* beautiful as always. I — along with a handful of other photographers once again “live Pinned” the before, during, and after show happenings on Pinterest. You can see the results here. Below, some of my favorite images, along with a few exclusives that weren’t on Pinterest. 😉
