The Francesca Liberatore SS/18 presentation was definitely a Kate Bush tribute with the 80’s style hair and looks on Sunday at #NYFW.
The Italian designer who is known for her previously working for high-end fashion houses, Viktor&Rolf, Jean Paul Gaultier and Brioni Womenswear.
The presentation took place inside the heart of NYFW, Skylight Clarkson Square on the water near West Village.
The look book was very much ‘Little House on the Prairie’ meet’s Kate Bush from the 80’s. I mean the soundtrack itself made it seem like the whole runway transformed into a 80’s chick flick. The models walked to Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ and if you know the music video then you know the style very well in comparison. Seems like Liberatore is a fan.
There was a lot of ruffled necklines, pleated long sleeve dresses and plaid and paisley printed skirts. If this doesn’t scream countryside with a modern twist, then maybe the hairstyles will convince you.
My favorite piece from the collection was the long sleeve light lavender dress with a pastel pink leather pleated waistband that I need to have in my wardrobe now.
After the finale and bow from Francesca Liberatore herself, I went to go get my hair styled at the TRESemmé pop-up salon also inside Skylight.
The stylists worked on shows such as Creature of Comfort and Tanya Taylor and then opened up a salon for anyone to get a new hairstyle in between shows.
TRESemmé is the official sponsor for NYFW and with that comes some great styles to steal and products (not literally).
The head stylist, Justine Marjan, created a textured low pony with products like the Repair & Protect 7 Shampoo and Conditioner, Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray, TRES Two Hair Spray and Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo.
