Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC!!
Our fabulous and talented Zandi K stylist, Riley Fedel, recently traveled to New York in order to be a part of the Aveda Team styling hair for the famous Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
“It was a great experience. I got to work in a fast paced environment and learn how to quickly execute many new looks… from avant garde buns to more commercial, flowing locks.”
Riley was fortunate to be able to work on several fashion shows in Manhattan that week.
“I helped with hair for the Academy of Art University, Leann Marshall, Stacy Sherri, Anna Francesca, Sunhee, and a couple more amazing designers.”
These fall fashion shows were previews for the Spring 2013 collections. The designers decide how they want the hair and makeup to best enhance their designs, and then translate that to the stylists who execute the looks. It is a high pressure and intense place to perform a look but exciting all the same!
“Some designers wanted to see all the hair into a tight bun or chignon, where some wanted to see the models hair set into a loose curl or deep wave. The hair was all so beautiful and fun to do. With the makeup, since the collections were for Spring, the makeup looks were mostly inspired by bright, airy Spring looks.”
“New York city is such a fun place and I was really sad to leave. I can’t wait to go back t the city for more seasons of Fashion Week or other work with hair or makeup…but couldn’t leave my hometown of Denver and all the lovely guests in my chair behind! I can’t wait to bring some of the amazing inspiration that I saw at New York Fashion Week back to my Denver guests!”
