Not All About The Women: NYFW – Darkoh SS15 @darkohmenswear

Written by , Posted in New York

Around this time of year all eyes are usually focused on women’s fashion but Darkoh is one of the few gems of a show to highlight the gravity of menswear. This season “the brand will introduce a smart and trendy ready-to-wear suit line made out of the finest natural cloth, for the young generation of active men,” Darkoh states.

 Not All About The Women: NYFW   Darkoh SS15 @darkohmenswear

On Monday, September 8th at the Loft Studio 450 she proved to do just that. Ruling over a male-dominated branch of designers and tailors Joyce Darkoh has shown the power of this young brand. From the incredible color range of powder pink to sodium white and the blatant display of exquisite craftsmanship in each suit this line has me convinced that Darkoh has it going on.

I love a well dressed guy.  Here are some of my favorite looks from the show:

Lassie and Pets Best Present Insurance Policies to Newly Adopted Pets

Lassie Helps Pets Best Present Insurance Policies to 2 Newly Adopted Pets

Pet insurance agency sponsors FIDO Friendly’s nationally recognized pet adoption tour 

 

BOISE, Idaho (Sept. 16, 2014) – In recognition of Pet Health Insurance Month in September, Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC, a leading pet insurance agency, recently had help from television legend Lassie while presenting Pets Best pet insurance policies to two newly adopted pets during the Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour.

 

Dr. Jack Stephens, founder of Pets Best, has a long-running history with Lassie, as he presented the iconic canine with the first pet insurance policy issued in the United States 32 years ago.

 

Lassie and Dr. Stephens made an appearance during a Sept. 14 adoption event at the Best Friends Pet Adoption & Spay/Neuter Center in Mission Hills, California, the third stop on the Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour. As a reward for supporting the adoption event, the first two families who adopted a pet that day were given one-year pet insurance policies. The Pets Best BestBenefit accident and illness policies were purchased and donated by FIDO Friendly.

 

The first pet insurance recipient was an 8-year-old mixed breed dog named Chopo, who, after spending a year at the shelter, happily went home with his new family. The second recipient was a black domestic shorthair kitten who is still unnamed but now has a place to call home.

 

“Pets Best is dedicated to improving the lives of pets across the nation by helping their owners afford the high costs associated with increasingly complex veterinary treatments,” Dr. Stephens said. “As a pet-focused organization, we take pride in supporting events that play a valuable role in promoting pet adoption.”

 

In an effort to raise awareness about shelters and pet adoption opportunities across the country, Pets Best has joined the Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour as the official pet insurance sponsor. The annual tour is put on by FIDO Friendly, a pet-focused travel and lifestyle publication. The tour kicked off on Sept. 12 in Riverside, California, and it ends in Kansas City on Oct. 19.

 

The sixth annual Get Your Licks on Route 66 tour will make its way across the country, stopping in 16 cities to bring awareness to pet adoption. Each event will take place at a local pet adoption site, and the public is invited to join the festivities. Pets available for adoption will be featured at each event for the public to meet and interact with.

 

Greg Sims, president and chief operating officer of FIDO Friendly, and Susan Sims, publisher of the quarterly magazine, developed the idea for the annual tour six years ago.

 

“It occurred to me that while we traveled with our dogs to review hotels and destinations, there might be something we could do while we were going from city to city on behalf of homeless pets,” Susan Sims said, adding that the couple has two adopted shelter dogs, a Labrador retriever named Junior and a boxer named Jake. “I often thought shelters endured a stigma of housing ‘throw-away dogs’ and that if you wanted a purebred dog, you would need to connect with a breeder. Both of our dogs serve as examples that the stigma associated with shelters is far from true.”

 

Actress, best-selling author and animal lover Danica McKellar serves as the event’s official spokesperson this year. McKellar, best known for her role as Winnie Cooper on “The Wonder Years” was recently seen competing on “Dancing with the Stars.” McKellar made a special appearance at the Los Angeles Animal Services East Valley Shelter on Sept. 13 in Van Nuys, California.

 

Brandon McMillan, host of the popular CBS show “Lucky Dog,” was also in attendance at the Sept. 13 event. McMillan and his crew filmed a segment that day at the shelter for an upcoming episode of “Lucky Dog.”

 

In the past five years, the tour has helped more than 2,000 pets find their forever homes. To learn more about the tour dates, visit www.getyourlicksonroute66.com. People who visit this website and make a donation of $10 or more to the tour will receive a free, one-year digital subscription to FIDO Friendly and a “Leave No Dog Behind®” bumper sticker.

 

“With the help of our sponsors, we will continue this life-saving tour every year to help shed light on the plight of homeless pets,” Susan Sims said.

Backstage light pinks were being added to the cheeks and coconut oil spread through the locks of all the models for a very natural, breath of fresh air feel. Flowy prints, light fabrics, and a particularly airy feel is what this line was all about, not to mention the absolutely stunning accessories to pull together each look.  455007132 Backstage Beauty @sheamoisture4u: Korto Momolu SS15 #MBFW

Backstage Beauty: @Osklen Spring 2015 Show #livingAveda

Written by , Posted in New York, WorldWide

Art, nature, and human body were the underlying themes at Osklen. Inspired from an art gallery in Brazil, the line included numbers made from organic silk and straw for a very raw feeling. Also, the designer made rain forest like prints projected onto fabrics creating special designed shorts and jumpsuits. Pertruding a tropical vibe with a minimalistic sense this line made me resort ready.

Backstage I spoke with Aveda specialists about the hair look in which they said, “it was a collaboration with creative director Oskar Metsavaht to achieve a natural angel-like look.” To do this they used Aveda Air Control Hairspray, Volumizing tonic spray, and Pure Abundance style prep serum. They polished the look with custom headbands and left out from strands to add a certain movement as the models walked down the runway.

The inspiration for the makeup comes from Oskars vision of, “an elegant effortless woman crosses from the tropical forest to a city through a magical gate.” This was achieved by adding MAC Natural Radiance to the temples, chin and nose for a natural glowing look. Skin was then concealed with MAC Studio Finish concealer. On the eyes artists used, MAC Urbanist and Power Player eyeshadows. A light amount of eye gloss was ran across the brows and Secret Admirer by MAC was added to the lips.
