Now this is an original idea.  By the great  one and only Oribe.  For Manolo’s NY Fashion Week show in 1997, Oribe working with Fulvia the makeup artist, created kiss curls in his own original way, drawn on. A beaded sculpture decorated the back of the head. This is just one of many original ideas Oribe created for  the show, which was  was held at Oribe’s Fifth Avenue Salon, with plenty of Gold Chairs,  and I remember Veruschka was present amongst other luminaries.  Time for more interesting ideas like this during NY Fashion Weeks.  Please!
