Backstage @ Badgley Mischka FW - 2024

Beauty photographed backstage at the Badgley Mischka New York Fashion Week Show for Fall Winter 2024 which took place at the Starrett-Lehigh Building on West 26th Street, and was inspired by the  precision and drama of Park Avenue’s  glass towers. “It’s a dance we love to do, of control and extravagance,” said the designers, Mark Badgley and James Mischka.  The hair here,  by Peter Gray and Team, was a classic mid-parted all one length bob, one of the few looks not the knotted ponytail  style in the show.  The makeup, by Mary Irwin, was about the Moody Blues, perfect for this gorgeous blue ruffled floor length dream gown.     To see more fashion, hair and makeup, CLICK HERE

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

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.
