If New York Fashion Week doesn’t give you Carrie Bradshaw vibes, I’m not sure what will.  If it’s on your bucket list to attend NYFW like yours truly, it’s everything you imagined.  The cameras, drop dead gorgeous models, designers and fabulous attendees, the chaos behind the scenes was almost like a pick- me-up for the hair and makeup teams.  The crazier it got, the faster they worked.

Nicole Miller

Bubbles Creative Director, Sharon So and Ratner’s Artistic Director, Rodney Cutler, dominated backstage at Nicole Miller.  Together with the Cutler salon team, they created long, slept in hair that looked effortless yet polished.  A few pixies and even shaved heads were thrown into the mix as well.  The eye makeup was more dramatic, complemented with a soft nude lip.  Nicole Miller, who is one of the nicest people you’ll meet, focused on the everyday girl for her Fall/Winter 2018 collection.  Her inspiration was driven by street style.  It was a great blend of masculine and feminine pieces with a military flare.  If something was very masculine, it was paired with a floral design to soften the look.  Saying it was fabulous doesn’t do it justice.


Taoray Wang

Next up, at Spring Studios in Tribeca, Bubbles sponsored the show for Taoray Wang.   IMO, this show slayed my life. Again, Sharon, Rodney and team Cutler, worked together to create a bouncy slept in blowout – a lot of volume at the root, with soft ends. Who knew that was even possible?  Soft eye makeup paired with a bold red lip strutted down the runway.  Red really ruled this show.  The color was paired with lace, which added a romantic feel.  A lot more diversity was seen on this cat walk, which made the show pop even more.  All of the clothing accentuated the model who was wearing it.  The models, lighting, music was fierce AF!

Claudia Li

Last but not least, Claudia Li.  Her show was different as it was an exhibit vs. a runway.  The majority of models had a deep side part, slicked down to perfection.  Models who had bangs wore texturized bobs. Very minimal makeup, with a bohemian feel.  It reminded me of Charlotte York in the Hamptons during fall. It had a little bit for everyone.  The bright pops of color brought life into her line.  In an interview with WWD, Claudia said her collection represented hope, to always keep going and be determined.

 For Fall/Winter 2018 be on the lookout for….

-Lots of red

-Military inspired pieces

-Unkempt hair

-Neutral toned hair

-Bold eyes or lips… not both!


Until next time, Besties! xx!
