Two quintessential New York City brands came together for one of NY FashionWeek’s most creative shows. Saku New York, a contemporary high fashion womenswear brand with showrooms in the East Village, challenged ARROJO NYC, the modern creative hairdressing brand with three salons in downtown NYC, to create hairstyles inspired by ‘femi-casual sea creatures.’ Happily, we had backstage access as lead stylist Alex Efstratiou “pushed the envelope to create styles that matched their vision.” See a pictorial story of the show below.

Every fashion month, I look most forward to London Fashion Week. Though it’s the shortest, I find it to always be the most creative in terms of fashion and beauty. Designers in London actually take chances, creating avant garde looks that are incredibly inspirational and actually exciting to look at. For me, even more exciting than the runway, is the backstage. It’s a great look at the beauty process and gives you an insider view at what it takes to put together an amazing look.

Blog of the people, friend to the stars, today StyleNoted takes you behind the scenes of Rob Garcia’s En Noir Spring / Summer 2014 Ready-to-Wear collection presentation. With fans like Kanye and Lebron, this was one of the hottest shows during Fashion Week; thanks to our connection to ARROJO –– the cool New York hairdressing brand that did all the hair for the show –– I was taken behind the scenes to see elements of fashion and beauty meld into one cohesive, conceptually brilliant collection. Including signature leather pieces –– hand-treated to create various embossed and textured effects –– intricately printed tanks and t-shirts, track pants, and other monochromatic, urban-inspired designs, it was all reflective of En Noir’s elite meets street aesthetic. The models donned easy, cool hair. The wearable styles were inspired by the subtle yet nonchalant visual cues in the garments, and the soft texture seen in the leather pieces.
