This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of exploring the majic that happened behind the Timo Weiland Men’s and Women’s Fall 2012 Show. Launching only a few short years ago including a collection of iconic neckwear, the brand has grown to also include signature clothing, knitwear, and accessories. The designs showcased in the Fall 2012 show were inspired by the classic flavor of St. Marks Place in New York City’s East Village. This was a time when the downtown area was truly “the spot” for up and coming artists, rock and hip hop musicians. Designers, Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein, aimed at mimicking this interesting decade of style and revolutionizing it into wearable modern-day design.
Complimenting the ambiance of the show, L’Oreal Professionnel Master Session Artist, Joseph DiMaggio, led a team of stylist to create hair that was “expertly textured and effortlessly lived-in.” Each model sported a care-free low pony secured by a thin black cord. One of the STAR new products, L’Oreal Professionnel Fresh Dust ($19, 3.4 oz-out this coming April!) was sprayed all over and under to create volume and a controlled messy texture. Overall, the hair for the show definitely gave off a downtown eclectic vibe.
Led by Celebrity Manicurist, Gina Edwards, the nail looks were created using Impress Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails ($6-$8, CVS). These nails are pretty ideal considering everything needs to be done fast back stage. The line of nails includes 18 cool colors and patterns. There’s no messy glue to worry about, and you are done applying in the blink of an eye. Most of the colors used during the show were darker plums and purples which you can’t go wrong with for fall.
Last but certainly not least, I had a chance to chat briefly with Sephora’s Lead Makeup Artist, Jose Rivera, about the makeup looks created for the Timo Weiland show. Here’s what he had to say….
