NYFW: Backstage at Venexiana Spring/Summer 2013 Show

Backstage at Venexiana was impressive! The hair, created by Philip Pelusi, Founder of Tela Design Studio and Tela Beauty Organics products was everything a runway look should be, exotic, unique and just complete artistry. With Symmetric rolls of hair, spun into a twist and around the sides of the models head, and then braided and pinned in the back out poured this stunning up do. To create the look, the team used Tela Beauty Organics by Philip Pelusi DRI SHAMPOO (Organic Dri Cleanser for the Hair and Scalp), COMPOSER (Organic Styling Product for All Hair Types) and HAIR GLOSS (Organic Elixer for Shine and Style).

There are elements of this style that would be achievable at home, however it took a lot of synthetic hair waived into the models real hair to create the volume and dimension.

Inspired by the Venexiana woman (who is not afraid to make a bold fashion statement), Mehron’s key artist Dani Fonseca created a dramatic yet versatile makeup look packing high-impact eyelashes to compliment the new collection’s vast range of colors.

Tela Organic Phyto-Keratin Smoothing Treatment

Tela Design Studio

On a miserable day in NYC, I walked into Philip Pelusi’s Tela Design Studio with my unruly, frizzy, rained on hair ready to try their new 85% USDA certified organic keratin smoothing hair treatment ($125). Unlike most keratin treatments on the market, this one is plant based (most are extracted from animals) and free of formaldehydes, sulfates, and parabens.

The semi-permanent hair care lasts 4-6 weeks and contains Pelusi’s patent-pending phyto ceramide complex, which works to rearrange the keratin bonds deep with hair to help renew hair to a silky and lustrous state while smoothing and straightening. Now I’m no stranger to Keratin, I’ve tried different types of treatments as well as styling products that contain it, however this was my first

Lorick Spring 2011 Collection

As a Gossip Girl fan, I’ve been drooling over the designs of  Eleanor Waldorf since Season 1. However it wasn’t until Season 2 that I learned Abigail Lorick was the real-life ghost designer behind the character’s collection; so imagine my excitement to receive an invitation to attend her Spring 2011 collection.

Hosted at Philip Pelusi’s Tella Design Studio in the meatpacking district, Lorick previewed her collection during NY Fashion week. Titled Linear Dawn and inspired by painter Agnes Martin, it was a very whimsical collection with asubtle palette of muted purples and blues. The clothes we’re effortlessly chic with fabrications of organza ageorgette and chiffon. It was cohesive and yet each piece was very unique, down to the styling.  With neutral makeup and rosy cheeks, some model wore their hair down with hats, while others in a low bun.

While backstage I noticed all the model’s shoes we’re wrapped in nylons. I assumed that was some new, clever way of
