Fashion Week in New York is coming to a close today, and there is more to report than just the new clothing designs. As dozens of designers unveiled their Spring 2014 collections, more than ever before attention to detail to the entire runway event was paramount.
This was strikingly evident in the breathtakingly (literally, a collective gasp was heard) stunning Spring 2014 fashion show by uber designer Prabal Gurung that I had the distict pleasure of seeing firsthard. He showcased his designs in a runway experience with perfumed air--yes, he personally attended to the custom scented ambiance--and so it was with the importance of the runway models’ hair in his overall design presentation. He wanted perfection, and top stylist Paul Hanlon for Osis delivered. "It's almost as if they've been sitting in formaldehyde and are stepping out to show their perfection just for a minute," he said.
Another Fashion Week hair trend was duly noted: flower hair accessories. From fresh flowers designed by Zac Posen himself for the elegant updos in his show to hair accessories seen on stars off the runway. Bella Thorne and Ariana Grande are just two of the celebs we've seen looking adorably chic with flowers in their hair this Fashion Week.
Hair is always a factor of great consideration with regard to complementing a fashion statement. In some cases the hair does steal the show as in this week's runway show for The Blonds. Amazing and fabulous as always, the aspect of the hair--more precisely massive space age hair balls atop super slick-backed style does not disappoint.
