Last Thursday, New York Fashion Week kicked off with stunning styles and plenty of texture...and we aren't just talking about the clothes. We went behind the scenes at two shows to see the latest runway hairstyles created by L'Oreal Professionnel lead stylist, Joseph DiMaggio.
At Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Joseph styled the hair for Timo Weiland's Women's Fall 2013 collection. The collection played on Baroque texture and military inspired cuts and to emphasive the regality of the collection, the models' hair was styled with center parts that flowed into 's' shaped waves. Joseph describes the look as "feminine tomboy, so it's a little done but it's kind of natural. She's ready for a fun weekend on the British countryside." To create the look, Joseph combined L'Oreal Professionnel Volume Expand Leave-In Spray and True Grip Texturizing Powder and sprayed all over the hair. He then braided the hair and set it into a bun. After a while, DiMaggio took out the bun and created voluminous waves using a flat iron to create 's' shaped waves.
Timo Weiland Presentation & After-Party: Timo Weiland showed a spunky-prep collection Sunday at Lincoln Center - identifying with adventurous yuppies everywhere through muted tones, color blocking and bold horizontal stripes. After the show, everyone headed to The Ohm to celebrate Weiland's showing, with Fashionista.com. With a live band, deejay and special sake drinks available, guests hardly noticed the damp change in weather when the party moved out onto the terrace. Weiland, being the great host that he is, showcased an impressive Spring 2011 video installation, while greeting pleased guests and posing for photographers.
Timo Weiland told a story of yesteryear and brought the simple styles of classic America to the stage as fresh designs in a noteworthy installation. The style of the tweed skinny pant alongside a matching jacket illustrated the designer's talent for superb craftsmanship while skillfully designing for an audience as well as plotline. In mixing the natural colors of browns and grays, Weiland sought to give a bit of humor to his collection with a juxtaposed full-on red suit designed as a eye-popping centerpiece.
