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.
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
Looking for a big ticket New Year’s Eve party? How about spending it with Courtney Love at the Standard Hotel.
I’d be all over this if I wasn’t having my own, Marie Antoinette themed New Year’s party. (And if I had a spare $250 lying around.) I’ve loved Courtney since the early 90’s, and am curious to see how her live performances have changed since then. I’m especially curious after hearing of the mixed reactions to her set at the Alexander Wang after party during NYFW. Always good for controversy, this should be an interesting event on a night always guaranteed to be entertaining.
Tickets, which range from $250 for standing room only, to $4,500 for a table for six, are available here.
