The past week has been filled with jaw dropping fashion from some of our favorite designers. New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion week is an event fashion lovers talk about all year. The seven days are jam packed with season trends, innovation, and exceptional showmanship. Nicholas K, BCBG, and Meskita kicked of the week with fantastic flare for the perfect introduction to an amazing fashion week.
Nicholas K set the pace with a breath taking safari middle eastern story of full coverage and head wrap fashions. The color story included army and olive greens, sand dune tan, black, ivory, smokey grey and just when we were thirsty for color they threw in a splash of blue.
The hair and makeup was simple but captivating. Sleek low ponytails were the perfect compliment to the bold liner hidden under crafty sunglasses. This show possessed a air of sensual seduction with little skin and lots of face.
With an eleven year old brand David Tlale kept the fashion freezing a flame with his modern South African collection. On top of the amazing sequence of his show Tlale’s collection was a quintessential combination of hard tribal prints and soft silk silhouettes.
His designs were complimented by textured hair. Pinned middle part bobs, crimps, and waves were in full affect in this show. The perfect marriage of natural hair and artistic expression.
Just when we all were going to explode from jam packed days of back to back fashion shows some of the hottest musicians came together to celebrate fashion in a star studded concert.
Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj gave us a healthy serving of Booty, while Rita Ora represented the U.K. in her energy filled performance. Jennifer Hudson kept the crowd moving with here incredible vocals over her new singles. Her slim frame was fashioned with fishnet stocking, high waist shorts and thigh high boots. Her hair was just as young and sexy as her outfit styled by Kiyah Wright.
Calvin Klein ended the week with the legendary quote “less is more”. His collection included rich simple pieces in cool subtle patriotic hues of cream, ivory, royal and navy blue, metallics , and a sporadic pop of red.
Klein followed the trend of sleek styles with tight low buns at the nape of every models head. This like many other complimenting looks during fashion week helped in bringing more attention to the face and the fashions frame it.
Fashion week closed out with a special presentation from Art Hearts Fashion by The AIDS Health Care Foundation. Putting a little purpose behind our passion for fashion.
Every season designers present new styles that become long standing trends. Along with every vision comes a hairstyle that adds the perfect finishing touches to their picturesque works of art. This spring we can plan to get our faces flawless for styles that frame our fierce miens; sleek back buns, straight tresses tucked behind the ears, and effortless loose curls are all looks we will see very soon.
