FASHION WEEK FLASHBACK: Cynthia Rowley Fall 2014


NY Fashion Week is almost here and since it's Friday Fashion Flashback on Evcurlgurl.com, I am sharing my amazing backstage beauty experience from the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2014 presentation. Held this past February 12th at the Diamond Horseshoe in NYC, Cynthia Rowley pulled out all the stops for her presentation, complete with trapeze artists spinning from the ceiling and models encased in glass windows. Backstage I mingled with the Cutler/Redken Salon hair team, Dermelect as they created the nail looks and Birchbox on make-up. I even met Jill Hennessy from one my favorite tv shows "Law & Order."

‘Moonbow’ Nail Design Created by Celebrity Manicurist Elle for Dermelect ‘ME’. Inspiration: “Cynthia’s key word describing the inspiration of her collection was ‘moonbows,’ a reflection on the romanticism of her sporty chic line for the Fall 2014 season,” says Elle.“Representing a rainbow of darker shades not using any primary colors, we layered two shades from the same color family on one nail, beginning with a darker red, to orange, yellow, green, indigo and purple to achieve the perfect ‘moonbow’.”


Lead Stylist Brian Buenaventura for Cutler/Redken Salon. Inspiration: Cynthia's collections always speak to the athletic, sporty girl, after seeing this season's collection, I was inspired to create a look that fun was fun, fresh and completely wearable. I let the hair be down, but incredibly dry with texture, almost a new Bridget Bardot." - Brian Buenaventura for Cutler/Redken Salon
