This was one of the most enjoyable hours of my Fashion Week. Preen's new collection is heaven-sent, full of creamy yellow, baby blue, sharp pink, rich navy and the coolest psychedelic foliage print. The cuts looked '60s-inspired to me, with boxy skirt suits, pencil skirts edged in ruffles, dresses cinched at the waist and delicate feminine blouses.
And then of course, there were the models. Seeing Lindsey Wixson and Arizona Muse, two of my favorites, was amazing. They're unreal beautiful. They must know it, right? Not in a snobby way, but simply because they're treated as goddesses in the fashion world. The photographers went nuts for them.
The sleek, coiled updo by Aveda, led by Paul Hanlon, really complemented Preen's collection. Here's how it was made:
"Give hair some grip by prepping with Aveda Volumizing Tonic and blowdrying away from the face with a round brush. Let hair part naturally and smooth with a fine-toothed comb and a mist of Aveda Air Control Hair Spray. Twist both sides of the hair from just above the ear, working your way to the back of the head along the parietal ridge. Clip hair at the back of the head and either twist into a bun or incorporate the ends of each twist into the roll on the opposite side of the head. Smooth with a fine-toothed comb, using Aveda Air Control Hair Spray to eliminate wisps. Finish with Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine."
