NYFW: Venexiana S/S 2013 Runway Show (+ Video)

There’s no doubt that Kati Stern is a total rockstar. I think anyone that can pull off 71 looks in one show deserves that title. And classically Venexiana, there was tons of embellishment details, sparkle galore with gowns covered in layers of chiffon that hit the runway for her spring/summer 2013 collection. For the silhouettes, she kept it fairly classic — long fitted gowns (either strapless, one-shoulder or halter shaped) at the top with long graceful trains down the bodice.

While most of the collection is too over-the-top for my taste (I can be honest – it doesn’t have to be my aesthetic for me to appreciate it), there were some very feminine and softer gowns I thought were stunning. With this many looks there’s something for everyone and I like that she’s not afraid to play with a full spectrum of colors and embellishments.

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.

“It was really exciting to work with a designer who loves color and makeup,” said Fonseca. “Mehron’s new iNtense Pro Pressed Pigments were essential for creating a look that mirrored the ferocity and elegance of the clothes on the runway.”

Get the look! Here’s how:
