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:

“Rebirth, Revive, Relive,” are the three words that Korto Momolu used to describe this seasons collection just minutes before the show started. Korto a “Project Runway” All-Star, two time runner-up, and voted “fan favorite” of the Bravo/Lifetime hit show fifth season as first runner-up, debuted her 2015 Spring/Summer Collection September 8th at the Designer’s Loft at Studio 450 presented by Shea Moisture.

Highlighted as one of the top five designers to watch by New York Magazine, Korto has been featured in Southern Living magazine, People magazine, Essence magazine, Kouture magazine, Los Angeles Times, and Washingtonian magazine.

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.

Backstage Beauty Maria Ke Fisherman SS15 @mariakefisher @TIGICreatives

Written by , Posted in New York

Inspiration: Maria Ke Fisherman’s Spring 2015 collection is inspired by the “imperviousness of innocence and youth in the fractal city.” In the  densely populated city, where criminal gangs suppose the only order, one young girl is saved by the last firefighter. With this in mind, CATWALK by TIGI Global Creative Director Nick Irwin developed a strong braided look which softens through the front, speaking perfectly to Maria Ke Fisherman’s impermeable girl.

Overall Look: Strong, symmetric braids

Screen Shot 2014 09 12 at 11.34.19 AM Backstage Beauty Maria Ke Fisherman SS15 @mariakefisher @TIGICreatives How-To:

Create a one-inch section of hair at the center, starting at the hairline all the way to the nape (a sort of ‘mohawk’ section of hair). Secure side sections away, leaving center panel for braiding
Braid center section of hair using a cornrow method from front to back and transitioning into a 3-strand technique when reaching the nape. Secure at the very end with an elastic and fold braid up onto itself; secure with pins
Divide each side into two sections, spraying front section from hairline to just above the ear with CATWALK® by TIGI® Session Series Work It Hairspray to create a lacquer effect and comb through to smooth flyaways and imperfections; fasten with a clear elastic into a ponytail in front of ear and then 3-strand braid till ends; secure with an elastic
Divide remaining hair on either side, into two horizontal sections to create triangular segments of hair. Apply CATWALK® by TIGI® Session Series Work It Hairspray and cornrow each of the four segments, starting at the hairline and eventually continuing into a 3-strand braid when reaching the part. Once braids are complete, fold them onto themselves to create your own version of a braid design pending the length of your hair; secure with pins
Finish by spraying CATWALK® by TIGI® Camera Ready Shine Spray
Products Used:

To go with this statement hairstyle a very graphic eyeliner so that you can see a bold line across the lid as the models walk the runway but yet a very light blush and soft pink lip for the touch of innocence. To really capture the adolescent look the makeup artist brushed the brow against the natural way to create an unpolished, unplucked look just like young girl’s eyebrows before they begin to shape them and pluck them as they grow older.

As far as the collection goes…one word: pleather. Black and white Pleather covered everything from jackets, to tops to boots, to pants. A very futuristic feel with platform shoes to really top it all off.
