Carabito will host their fourth annual Northeast Educational Conference in Portland, Maine on November 2 and 3 with presentations and hands-on-workshops. We are excited to announce that Marianne Dougherty, Launchpad's Editor at Large, will be presenting Fall & Winter Hair Trends at the conference.
The inspiration behind Jenny Packham's Spring/Summer 2015 presentation can be summed up in the glamourous life of Marilyn Monroe and other screen sirens' quintessential style on screen and in real life at the Bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
With inspiration from Björk and the neo-hippie phase of the late-80’s, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a mod-Mohawk with an innocent, girly vibe for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015 show. Mixing girly with punk, this charming style looks like it came from a rave to the runway. Using Redken’s new Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray, Guido created a Mohawk-like look by sectioning the hair into four small ponytails and twisting them down into tiny, tight knots for a young, fun look with a hint of toughness.
Inspired by the authentic, easy going “Cali Girl” circa 1970, renowned hairstylist Mark Townsend made the “original, bohemian piece-y beach ‘do” a Spring/Summer 2015 must-have at the Elizabeth and James presentation this afternoon.
It was a trippy, Technicolor dream at the DEGEN presentation during Spring 2015 Mercedes’ Benz New York Fashion Week. China Glaze Nail Lacquer nailed the look as models showcased their psychedelically swirled manicures in shades hand-selected by the designer Lindsay Degen and her beauty team to complement her fun and funky creations. Models took the stage at the DEGEN presentation, rocking custom-made China Glaze water-marbled nails, applied by celebrity manicurist Casey Herman and team.
OPI worked with Reem Acra to create the nail look for the designer’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 runway show at Lincoln Center on Monday, September 8. Models’ nails and toes featured Bubble Bath, a soft, milky pink to complement the show’s romantic, feminine fashions.
NUBAR Nails joined forces with the fashion powers that be this year at New York Fashion Week to bring their healthy, vegan formula to the big event.
Hues SEXY GOLD and SPHINX PURPLE took center stage at designer MALAN BRETON’s packed show. The reddish-purple hue that is SPHINX PURPLE was crafted into nail bed-size circles and highlighted around the trendy shape with flecks of Nubar’s SEXY GOLD metallic polish. Breton’s clothing for spring 2015 was rich in texture/color, and was inspired by the Bob Fosse film, Cabaret.
Donna Karan's Spring/Summer 2015 collection was full of bright, graphic colors. To complement the look, lead manicurist Deborah Lippman created a soft, matte, grey nail. Says Lippman, “Giving a nod to the natural and monochromatic soft grey eyelid that was created by Charlotte Tilbury, I fashioned a sheer grey veil on the nail. I chose to overlay it with a matte topcoat to add a bit of texture. The modern finish pairs nicely with the graphic colors from her Spring/Summer 2015 collection.”Get the Look:
Luxury streetwear designer Devon Halfnight Leflufy’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection was filled with sporty separates in fresh and bold prints. Lead hairstylist Joey George for R+Co created two looks with a California vibe to complement the clothes. For the longer haired models, he gave them a strong center part with laid-back, straight hair and an off-center part for the short-haired models.
For the Jack Spade Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Design Director Todd Magill took a more modern approach than in previous years and found inspiration in men in big cities and that moment of transition when they're running from the office to the gym or out to meet friends. "These are the clothes the guy in an urban environment needs," Magill explained. "I've been calling it 'urban utility.'" To complement the collection, Magill and stylist Deborah Watson worked with R+Co's Thom Priano to craft a look that was modern and groomed but still classic and relaxed.
