SNOW DAY SLEEK

 Let's face it, this Polar Vortex has thrown us all for a loop. Why not brighten up the winter dreariness up with rouge lips and a stylish puffer?

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK PART 4: ELEGANT EMBELLISHMENT

Three very different designers gave me a lesson in embellishment in part 4 of my Fashion Week diary. Despite their differences, a common theme remains. A simple ensemble with a pop of glamour is always a success.

Shows:
ALEJANDRO INGELMO: The Cuban designer uses his rich heritage to bring a sexy, colorful nature to his sophisticated shoes. His presentation, held in the modern Robert Miller Gallery, blended in with the surrounding intricate, contemporary sculptures.

 



CZAR BY CESAR GALINDO: Being backstage at Cesar Galindo's presentation was a thrilling learning experience. In the makeup room, I learned how to contour a nose (swipe concealer two shades lighter down the middle and rub bronzer along the sides) and that Indian Holi powder is often used to temporarily color models' hair. In regards to the clothes, Galindo only used intense colors and fabrics on classic silhouettes; thus making them wearable.
  
 
 
 
 


TRACY REESE: Glitter, sequins, and voluminous hair were all in attendance at Reese's shoppable fall/winter show. Her message? Winter should be anything but dull and dreary.
 


On the Scene:
Essence included me in their Street Style review!

 In the art, music, and fashion world, Milk Studios is known as the best space for photoshoots and videography. Milk Made serves as an online platform to showcase the products of Milk's creative community. During fashion week, I attended their presentation which featured a series of talented designers; many of whom were new to me.
