This season there is an extra buzz in New York, not only the fashion, hair and make-up but there is a new movement in the industry.

The continuation of fashion activism has been transported to New York fashion week at the Chromat runway. Designers inclusivity and gender fluidity, saw muses and personalities such as Desmond is amazingGeena Rocero  and Viktoria Modesta who wore a transparent prosthesis and walked with an amazingly diverse group of people at Chromat along with Ericka Hart, the breast cancer survivor, a truly brave women sharing her story and raising awareness that we are all the same no matter what. Ericka wore a mesh neon top revealing her double-mastectomy scars.

The designer Becca McCharen made sure all ages, shapes, sizes & ethnicities were represented. Hopefully this will continue and we will see more diversity on the catwalks.


As you can see from my previous blogs 80’s hair accessories are to make a huge come back. I was excited to see this evolve at NYFW.

Tom Ford – A continuation of the 80’s trend featuring hair accessories. Orlando Pita styled the hair at Tom Ford with this powerful 80’s leather headband which were secured at the back with grips, the ‘made trend’ is set to continue.

Jeremy Scott – There was a strong nod to sci-fi at the show with blunt neon wigs in many colours from the brand new Wella colour Create tone palette. The genius Eugene Souleiman for ghd created the perfect hair cuts replicated on all models.

Alexander Wang – This was a surprise…. the claw clip or as I fondly remember the banana clip is back. The slicked back hair by Guido Palau was held in place by the new must have accessory. Guido added a modern twist with the hair peaking from the bottom.

Prabal Gurung – Do you remember the Zig Zag head band?This retro accessory is making a come back following the hair accessory trend. For a few seasons we have been seeing wet look slicked back hair. The hair texture is left to natural movement. I feel the perm could be making a come back!
