City Pulse

By Charu Suri

Michon Schur’s collection for fall was a breezy, girlish and country affair. Numbers like the Swarovski hand embroidered Japanese flower wool dress and Silk Japanese ink swirl print on an empire dress accented the girlish innocence and ethereal beauty of the models.

Personally, this was one of my favorite shows of Fashion Week. There was a “don’t try too hard” elegance about the whole collection, and the hair accessories, makeup and clothes created a spirit of playful childlikeness that was hard to miss.

The hair, done by Aveda was a “messy bun with a lot of texture,” says Frank Raziri. “We’re tying some fabric in it, and some of the girls have a head wrap.” Texture, and messy hair looks like a trend for fall, so take note! Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Spray was used to treat the hair and tease it.


The makeup was done by Nars, and the look was very simple, almost peasant-like. Makeup artists used the Mata Hari blush, Kalahari eyeshadow and Chantaco lip color from the new fall collection.
