The Jonathan Simkhai New York Fashion Week Show for Spring 2017 dazzled with drop-dead gowns, many highly embellished, mostly in white or ivory but also in darker shades too, like this one in a sophisticated mix of black and navy.  A long slim earring, beaded at the end, and chokers were worn with all the gorgeous gowns and fashions.  The hair featured a thin braid on the other side (not shown here) and was down, natural-looking, with an element of dry roughness, said Thomas Osborn who led the Catwalk by TIGI Team.
