NYFW Spring 2015 – Milly

The beauty team backstage at Milly was made up of Bob Recine for hair, Mark Carrasquillo for makeup and Katie Jane Hughes for nails.  The idea behind the beauty look was a rosy-cheeked British girl with summer freckles.  For the collection, designer Michelle Smith drew from the following inspiration:

“Michelle drew inspiration from the bold conceptual art of Dan Graham and John Baldessari.  Smith constructs an energetic collection through luxurious, futuristic fabrics and cascading silhouettes.  The color spectrum of the collection, grounded in black and white, features kinetic bursts of saturated color.  Cobalt, poppy, yellow and mint echo the palette favored by Baldessari.  Complex textures and layered transparency are streamlined through minimal, sculptural shapes.”

NYFW Spring 2015 – Lela Rose

Lela Rose presented a beautiful Spring/Summer collection at New York Fashion Week.  Here’s the inspiration behind her designs:

“The work of contemporary Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, who has a unique approach to graphics and florals. The collection mixes feminine shapes with graphic cut outs that mimic Japanese wood cuts. The prints, materials, and cuts of Kimonos were also a main source of inspiration.”

Tina Turnbow prepped skin with Organic Pharmacy.  She used the Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream on dryer skin and the Antioxidant Face Gel on oilier skin types.

NYFW Spring 2015 – Honor

The creative minds behind Honor always have such interesting inspiration for their collections.  Here’s the story for Spring/Summer 2015:

“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.”

This season, the beauty team was made up of Polly Osmond for makeup, James Pecis for hair and Nonie Creme for nails.  See how they achieved the look below:

NYFW Spring 2015 – Edun

Master hairstylist James Pecis took the lead on the hair look at Edun this season.  He used Phyto hair care products and T3 tools to create rough texture in the hair.  He then pulled it into a low pony and created a “zulu twist” with the length of the ponytail:
