Nardos Amam’s opulent New York Fashion Week Collection for Fall/Winter 2024 was held at The Lotus Club.  The couture and ready to wear fashions featured plants, birds, flowers – embroidered or appliqued onto the gorgeous gowns.  The collection was inspired by the Gilded Age with a contemporary twist.  The eye makeup by Marcello Costa was stunning, with 5,000 Swarovski crystals glittering from eyes, the hair by Brian Buenaventura for Cutler/Redken was casual, updos with wisps flying here and  there, the hats and headgear by Christine A. Moore Millinery were fun, and elegant.    It was all very elegant.

SELKIE FAIRY MAGIC NYFW SS2024

The Selkie New York Fashion Week Show for Spring 2024 which took place in the St Regis rooftop ballroom was something else. It was a whimsical fantasy fairy tale showcasing models of all sizes, ages, one gorgeous girl in a wheelchair, two burlesque performers.  Inspired by the Cottingley Sisters, who convinced the world in 1917 that fairies might exist, Creative Director and Designer, Kimberly Gordon, produced a superspectacular show. She asks “Do You Believe?” She does, and she transported everyone back in time  to play dress up – “to embrace your inner child” with her cream puff dresses modernized with magic.

The feminine pretty hairstyles, many with hair extensions, was by Linh Nguyen for Cutler/Redken, and the make up by Lottie for Colour Pop featured a mole, soft bow lips, a flush-like blush.
