Fashion Hong Kong New York Fashion Week for Fall 2019 featured three interesting designers.   Anvelglosa’s Annette Chan showed strong leather silhouettes inspired by the “good old days” worn with black leather yacht master hats on top of long, luscious curly wavy hair by Aveda’s Jon Reyman. We like the black leather on the hoop earrings too. To see more from this show, very different looks from three talented designers, CLICK HERE and stay tuned for more here …

Cyborg hair, makeup and fashions at the Kaimin New York Fashion Show for Fall/Winter 2019 were from another planet. Peter Gray created his interpretation of Cyborg haircuts calling them “brutalist haircuts and shapes inspired by the architecture of Zaha Hadid and Sassoon Old School Classics. He said he was “going in with all guns blazing, and it’s going to be crazy.” It was. Here’s one of his wigs worn with cool Cyborg makeup by Romero Jenning.  For more fab fashions and hair photos, CLICK HERE

Likes Vary For Same Photo On Socials – 2019

 Likes Vary For Same Photo On Socials - 2019

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

Interesting how Likes and reactions can vary for the same photo on social media.  On my Facebook Profile page, where I only friend those I know, there are few Likes, 10.    On my Facebook Biz Buzz Page, click, where one has to pay a now-increased minimum fee of $10 for 3 days for most photos to be seen on the Newsfeed, an album with 23  fab photos has got  11 Likes, so far, and none for this photo.   On my Instagram page, the same photo has 150 Likes, so far, and growing, a lot for me.   I admit I do not do enough social media, not every day, as I should, and I do not Like everyone who follows me but, really, using Instagram click, is  more motivating – unless I post a photo of me, because that gets reactions on the Facebooks. It also illustrates how very different many of the followers are on the social media platforms.

This fab fashion by Thierry Mugler is from his Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 1995-1996 Collection and is a “Venus Emsemble” with pearls scattered in unusual places.  It is from the Met Museum’s Camp: Notes on Fashion Spring  2019 Exhibition in the Costume Institute, which runs until September 8, 2019.

Cauliflower Head @ Met Camp - 2019

How about wearing this vegetable jewel of a hat on your head?  This is the cauliflower headpiece at the Met Fifth Avenue Camp: Notes on Fashion Exhibition, from May 9 to September 8,  2019, in Gallery 999. It is by Deirdre Hawken, 2013, and is in shades of dark green, light green, and yellow silk satin and chiffon with synthetic pearl beads, held  in place with  black elastic.  “We are experiencing a resurgence of camp,” said Andrew Boulton, curator extraordinaire for the Costume Institute, who worked closely with Condé Nast’s Anna Wintour  on the exhibition, which “examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion.”  23 more amazing photos of some amazing camp fashions on Helen Oppenheim’s Facebook Biz Buzz
