Luminosity filled the runway Wednesday morning, which featured the BCBGMaxazria Spring 2008 collection. The models seemed to glide effortlessly down the runway in their fresh feminine silhouettes. ” You will find traditional tailoring and corsetry deconstructed to define a modern woman,” stated representatives from BCBG. The collection used a palette of fresh whites, ivory’s, lilacs, and other natural tones.


Makeup mavens from Diane Kendal transformed the models into fresh-faced goddesses with the use of white deconstructive eyeliner, a pop of bright orange lipstick, and muted pink cheeks. The creation of a clean and youthful palette unveiled the model’s true beauty instead of overshadowing it as in seasons past. Hairstylists from Recine provided the models with free and easy tussled hairstyles to complement the luminescent collection. The hair was not to be too messy or mangled but naturally disheveled. To attain the youthful look, Recine stylists used L’Oreal Professional infiunium spray, which has unique shape memory to form the look.


The collection embodied the true essence of a woman. The use of layering different transparencies of materials enhanced the sense of radiance. The models sported graceful spring and summer dresses, skirts, and other separates made of silk organza, tulle, and charmeuse. The collection was truly girlishly chic.
