Nanette Lepore



If there was ever a line of workwear disigned for the more bohemian of tasted, this is it. Lepore presented wool, fur and floaty lace, accented here and there with bright plaid prints and beading, all in an array of greys, burgundys, pinks and purples. Separates and more tailored pieces were integrated with flaty dresses and lighter fabrics by adding shape with strong belts. The two hair looks, created by James Pecis for Alterna, were a reflection of this class-meets-relaxed approach. The first look, worn down, was a braid worn asymmetrically across the forehead down in front of one ear. The other was designed to show off the backs of the garments and consisted of six sections of hair tied into knots then roughly pinned down. Both had character and a worn-in look, but were actually very wearable, either in contrast to the suitwear (should you want to make a statement), or in harmony with the more relaxed looks.


Anna Sui



Anna Sui took inspiration from China this season, fitting in brilliantly with her love for prints and ebellishment. There was a wonderfully colourful range of layered, bright-but-not-clashy separates; lightweight skirts from almost-mini to almost-maxi or trousers, an Oriental-meets-art deco feeling about the whole thing. And where quirky fashion is, we get quirk hair, too. The fringes here were the focal point: more of that ultra shine we've been seeing in New York, and in an odlly disconnected way, central t the forehead in a C-curvature. The men of the show wore the mun (portmanteau of 'man bun') that has been going viral faster than you can snap your fingers after it's popularity with our gentlemen celebrities on red carpets during awards season. The message here is simply "get noticed" - be slightly ahead of the rest and don't be afraid to do something a little different.


Betsey Johnson



Betsey's Hot! That was the not-so-subtle message Ms Johnson gave us this season, emblazoned across the back wall and accentuated by shirtless firefighters at the end. You can see what she means though; this was bright, bright, bright. The candy-sweet rainbow was delivered in all textures, (fur, leather, chiffon, sequins), patterns, (stripes, florals, animal prints) and, of course, colours. And the other thing that every model wore was slinky attitude and a smile - after all, who wouldn't be happy in these clothes? Lead hair stylist Micheal Dueñas said of the look, "I knew I'd have to decide on a hairstyle that matched Betsey's do-cartwheels-down-the-runway energy", citing Briggite Bardot as his inspiration, slightly undonw with a rock 'n' roll edge to it. To achieve this he mixed a volumising hairspray and salt spray by Osis+ before barrel-curling the hair. The result, a wonderful amount of life and bounce - and that goes for the show, too.
