It was sizzling hot, in the 90s most days at New York Fashion Week for Spring 2017 but, just as they were in the freezing cold, the Fab Fashionistas Seen on Scene were on target with their hair, their makeup, their fashions, jewelry, shoes and accessories.

Interestingly, many were dressed in Zara, some in H&M as well as in top designer labels.  There was a lot of lace, and totally bared shoulders to cope with the heat.  Everyone was cool, in every way.  Check the looks here, then go to my website and see  more in the two albums there – 17 photos for hair and 19 photos for fashions.  (The website is best viewed on a tablet or computer rather than a phone!  Sorry about that, but there are now over 4,000 photos archived to inspire you on the website and, well, sigh! )   

These are real people, these fashionistas, and they can be as inspirational as anything seen on the runways for today and tomorrow, so click away and enjoy …

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

Maggie Mulhern | February 9, 2017

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
