The Gilded Age  with a contemporary twist inspired Nardos Amam’s New York Fashion Week Show for Fall Winter 2024, which was held at The Lotus Club in New York.  The lacework on these gorgeous evening dresses is absolutely stunning.  Marcello Costa used thousands of Swarovski crystals on the glittering eyes and, with all this glamour, the hair by Brian Buenaventura for Cutler/Redken was a super casual updo with flying wisps here and there.  To see 35 photos with more inspiration archived from the show on this website, CLICK HERE

The hair by Peter Gray and Team for the Badgley Mischka NY Fashion Week FW 2024 Show was a super sleek pony tail with a little knot achieved by weaving with a big needle then securing with black thread.  “Simply Sumo” Gray called it.  The makeup by Mary Irwin was about Moody Blues, with a touch of Twiggy, the look being inspired by classic Twiggy makeup, but modernized with placement and color.  To see the album archived on this website with more on the hair, the makeup, the earrings and the fabulous fashions CLICK HERE

The Sakura Collection featuring textiles from Japan at The Pierre Hotel was something different, unusual.  Young designers showed their talents along with some dancers worthy of a Broadway Show and a drummer who drummed away and almost stole the show. A few great videos , larger photos, more fashions, the dancers, the drummer and more to come on my Facebook, Biz Buzz and Instagram. Stay tuned …
