MADE NYFW at Milk Studios for THE BLONDS.
This NYFW I was asked to be a part of the MADE Fashion Week Google+ hangouts for The Blonds fashion show and excitingly obliged! I am OBSESSED with The Blonds and their fierce designs of corsetry and their ability to make fashion fun and out of this world. This amazingly talented power couple from NY never fails to put on a great fashion show and I was so glad to attend this one. It literally made my entire NYFW as one of the best shows I have ever seen. For Fall 2013 Phillip and David gave us a KILLER collection inspired by classic Hollywood glamour meets Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock with straight jacket fur coats, trench coats adorned with knives, clear rain coats that were dripping with blood-colored diamonds, and screen prints of your favorite killers like Jack Nicholson in “The Shining”. I was completely in awe of this collection and their wasn’t an outfit I didn’t like. The big hair, the red cat-eyes, the printed nails, and the horror made the inner goth in me jump for joy. This show screamed female empowerment and the models looked like glamorous murderers who fancied blood and diamonds. The finale featured Phillipe in a full body blood diamond encrusted body suit that started from his neck to his ankles cinched by his tiny little waist. I don’t think I know a more beautiful man as he glows every time I see him.photo by: Cool Hunting Project
I got to see it all, dressed in a perfect gothic galactic ensemble by Falguni and Shane. How fitting! I got a glimpse of the magic back stage before the show and got to see the characters who attended front and center. It was definitely full of exhibitionists who were just as anxious as I was to see the collection brought to life on the runway. After the runway was over I watched and listened as people spoke highly of the show, saying it was fantastic…because it was.. I was glad I got to express my opinion on the Google+ live scream along with my good friend Nubia. It was so much fun and I got to meet so many great people at Milk Studios. I am hoping that I get the opportunity to do it again next NYFW!MILK Studios- I’m READY!Here we go! Here are some photos I shot of some of the characters who attended the show. Here are some of my favorite pieces from the show! The Blonds started off the show with an ode to Alfred Hitchcocks movie “The Birds” circa 1963. This was one of my favorite pieces from the collection. It is a trench coat with a knife print! And notice the sparkly red louboutins. 😉 Ahh the faux fur straight jacket made everyone’s heart swoon! This one’s a killer too! OBSESSED! A little blood… …a little rock and roll. This dress was stunning. The model glided down that runway in elegance. BOOM. Bad Bitch.
Bravo David and Phillipe!
My Falguni and Shane dress I wore for the show. I am so glad I got to finally wear it! I love the see-through panels and abstract prints of this dress. The back of it is pretty neat too.
