Fashion Week-Day 4-Cynthia Rowley Runway Show

14 Sep

Fashion Week-Day 4-Cynthia Rowley Runway Show

We had the dutiful honor of being guests at the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2011 runway show and take in her new ready to wear collection Saturday at Lincoln Center…The collection was a mad dash of clean lines with beautiful pastel colors-irredescent white, bright yellow, and a shimmer of pink and red! Perfect for an afternoon at the park or for a dressed up night out on the town. Striped knitwear, slim-cut chino pants, and shift dresses were all the buzz!..And we must not forget the colorful designs of the platform heels and a little “neck candy” (eccentric giant beaded necklaces) completed the overall look! The shift dresses were classic with holes punched out in the front. The hole punch in the dresses were hot!..ladies don’t be afraid to show a little more skin!
Can we just give a champagne toast and an “amen” to the sweaters, their round colorful medallions and geometric patterns were perfect compliments to the platform heels!…As in the words of Rachel Zoe, celebrity stylist, “we died!”

Now a look is not complete without a final touch of the hair! With the professional styling of Wella Professionals, the statuesque models were classic and complete with their hairstyle: a tight chignon and giant hair barrettes shifted over the sleek “do”….with a shimmer of the runway lights, the barrettes added just another sense of rarity to the fabulous clothing!…

A little star sighting amongst the fashion crowd: Actress Aisha Tyler, Top Model Judge, Noted Fashion photographer Nigel Barker, and Actress Rebecca Romijn O’Connell!

Day 1-NYC Fashion Week

9 Sep

Where Wear in the City is officially in NYC for Fashion Week! We made it here late last night due to the monsoon and tornado touchdown in Dallas!

Despite the weather and little sleep, we had a great morning and afternoon with the Wella Professionals at the Color Catwalk Class at Studio NYC & the R&D Salon in Rockfeller Center.

We had the pleasure of meeting and learning from the top Wella Professionals in the country….Alexandra Matiz, Wella Color Ambassador of the Patrick Melville Salon in NYC, Aura Friedman, Wella Celebrity Colorist of the the Serge Normant Salon in NYC, and Rick Wellman, Co-Owner and Colorist of the Patrick Melville Salon to name a few. These top professionals as well as the Wella Professionals brand team conducted a seminar for some of the top colorists in the country in regards to overall hair color trends for Spring 2011…think futuristic, innovative, technology and luxury with golden hues…all based on the “blonde” interpretation. These platinum, iridescent, modern slate and white tones are being used for the upcoming Cynthia Rowley show on Saturday 9/11. The colorists also participated in the coloring of all the hair wefts “aka extensions” for the Cynthia Rowley Fashion Night Out West Village store which was voted as the #2 and Top 5 place to be tomorrow night and yours truly will be there!

All in All, we learned that Wella Professionals and these fabulous colorists are united people who are passionate about hair in the quest for moments of hair triumph! They are innovative, inspiring and educated in hair color trends which you will see complete on the runway. Be sure to checkout the Wella Professionals Discovery Tour coming to a city near you….
