FASHION WEEK: Day 1
Although the tents for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week are still under construction at Lincoln Center (the show moved from Bryant Park), the fashion press and other fashionistas have arrived in New York to see what's happening for Spring and Summer 2011. Aveda kicked off with one of the very first off site shows, sponsoring Organic by John Patrick. Lead stylist, Jenn Chiminiello, created "Wilted Waves", a sophisticated long loose silhouette. Says designer John Patrick of the finish:
"The undone, wavy look is sexy and unrestrained, inspired by a girl's hair after she's been in the water. It's very soft and flowing with lots of texture to give it a natural messiness. It's loose, second-day hair-like it was curled the day before and then left alone. Our collection this season is based around water. I love that the hair look evokes the salty, windblown feel of hair that's dried after being in the ocean. The style definitely has some 1970's, Charlie's Angels inspiration but the finished look is completely fresh.
