HONOR S/S 2015

HONOR S-S 2015 NYFW 063

HONOR is one of those special NYC based brands that I’ve been following almost since their inception. Back in 2011, I shot their second show ever, and fell in love with their unique mix of whimsy, and retro sensibility.

Such a fun fabric!

Each season, they create and incredibly detailed inspiration story behind the collection. For Spring, the story was as follows:

“A beautiful debutante falls in love with a George Harrison-type bad boy. They go on a physical and spiritual “trip” together. She finally realizes she has fallen for a bad person and begins to untangle herself from him. She is stronger for her experience.”

For the beauty look, this translated into a relaxed low ponytail, bold blue winged eyeshadow, and a fun blue and pearl nail.

Adam Selman S-S 2015 NYFW 045

Backstage at Adam Selman, I saw the first appearance of what seemed to be a new Spring beauty trend– fake freckles! At times overdone, in this case they were straight up adorable.

A nearly bare, luminous face kept the models looking young and fresh.

Karen Walker S-S 2015 NYFW 084A

I think it’s safe to say Thom Browne is my favorite show of every NYFW season. There really is nothing else like it, and I’m stunned over and over again that it even takes place in New York, and not in Paris during Couture week.

One of the things I enjoy the most about this show is seeing so many different parts of what goes into putting on this show. From the hair and makeup, to the finishing touches being sewn onto the garments. Everything combines to create a completely unique fashion week experience.

Oscar de la Renta S-S 2015 NYFW 194

Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2015 offering was a magical, floral inspired collection. Of course, one always expects beauty at an Oscar show. But this season, I was even more blown away than usual.

Working as part of the Live Pinning team for the Oscar PR Girl Pinterest board once again, I spent a glorious 4 hours photographing the backstage, and runway show.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Backstage

Marc by Marc Jacobs S-S 2015 NYFW 001

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.”

KAELEN Spring/Summer 2015

KAELEN S-S 2015 NYFW 030

WHO: KAELEN Spring 2015

WHAT: A floral inspired collection from CFDA Incubator program member Kaelen Haworth

KAELEN S-S 2015 NYFW 006

BACKSTAGE: Both the hair and makeup were inspired by the 1960’s, and Marcia Brady. MAC lead artist Chantel Miller created a “reverse cat eye”, by applying white shadow to the lower eyelid, and layering darker taupe eyeshadow nearly up to the brow. Cheeks were toned with taupe blush, eyebrows were brushed up, and no mascara was used. Concealer was applied to models’ lips right before the show began.
