Braids on the forehead, neat buns and florals decorated many heads by Anthony Joseph Hernandez for Cutler/Redken at the House of Aama New York Fashion Week Show for Fall/Winter 2023.    A folk tale of the Spider’s metamorphosis was inspiration for the patterns, colors, original textile elements and hair for the show with a theme  – “Prelude” Aama Tales – about the survival during the transatlantic slave trade, the migration to America from the Caribbean.

This makeup look, one of two, by Maite Moreira for the New York Makeup Academy, shows duochrome eyeshadows from Jaded Blue to Green, some shine and glitter. To see more hair, makeup and fashions from this show, CLICK HERE

PH5 Takes The Veil @ NYFW F/W – 2023

The  theme for the PH5 Presentation for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023 was “This is not a Jellyfish.” The hair, by Carly Loura, Cutler/Redken. was center parted, two oblong buns, one either side of the part, which were worn outside of fishnet veiling covering the hair and the face.  Some models also wore see-through plastic bridal-like veils, some crystal-studded.

The designers, Zoe Champion and Wei Lin, went “deeper underwater, into a world where plastic can be mistaken for otherworldly life forms and a place we have barely explored is being impacted by us so greatly.”  90% of the materials used in the collection were made of recycled materials. Friends and family were asked to collect plastic from their lives and the designers gave them a second life as crochet bags.  Stay tuned for the fun whimsical fashions, on theme, to be archived on this website later.
