Trend Alert.  Captured backstage at the Global Collective NY Fashion Week show for Spring 2020, this lip mustache being painted on a male model with hair up to there. A lip mustache is   something new.  Black lipstick on the upper lip, with ends curling up, like a mustache of the old days.  Worn here with  a Frida Kahlo eyebrow.  The exaggerated make up on both sexes was by Michelle Strain . The hair was  by Jorge Luis, the fashions by Mr Hua/Mrs Hua, a Chinese brand designed by NiuNiu Chou, a fusion of pop art with contemporary styling. Stay tuned for more  …
