Inspiration: For their 25th anniversary, designer Demi Park of Parkchoonmoo has been inspired by an almost alchemical approach, going back to the very root of what "design" means to her personally. FW14 is a season of re-interpreting her old collections and studies, going back to her roots and, in her opinion, what really defines fashion. To complement the collection, CATWALK® by TIGI® Global Creative Director Nick Irwin has created a simple and sleek variation of the classic ponytail, complete with ample shine and style.
Overall Look: Chic and shiny low ponytail
Inspiration: Mara Hoffman’s Fall 2014 collection is inspired by the art, landscapes, textiles, and jewelry of Northern Africa. Rugs of Morocco, camels in the Egyptian desert and Bedouin jewelry are references for this season’s aesthetic. Once again, Hoffman and CATWALK® by TIGI® Global CreativeDirector Nick Irwin paired up to develop an intricately effortless hair look that speaks perfectly to Hoffman's confident, sultry, glamorous girl.
Overall Look: A brave, back to the desert braid
