#NYFW: Erin Fetherston SS 2016 Backstage Recap
“Influenced by the bucolic impressions of David Hamilton and Deborah Tuberville, Erin Fetherston presents her Spring 2016 collection inspired by a muse who is equal parts Jane Birkin and Anne of Avonlea. The mood is of arcadian reverie.”
See how the soft and sweet beauty look for Erin Fetherston Spring/Summer 2016 was created.
Dani Fonseca-Ondrek and the AOFMPro team created a delicate beauty look to balance the clean, romantic nature of the collection. Fonseca-Ondrek described the brows as “light, feathered, and wild,” while she accentuated eyes using eyeliner that was deliberately applied to be gently rubbed and smudged. On lips, models touted a light, natural looking lip stain. Ultimately, the team called the look one that evokes just waking up with light makeup from the night before.
Matthew Curtis for John Masters Organics described the hairstyle as “effortless, loose, wearable, with a hint of the ’70s.” To complement the collection that had floating and organic elements to it, Curtis created a few variations of a lived-in but lifted style. A couple of the floral looks of the collection invited the team to give a nod to the ’70s – some models to wear fabric headscarves while others got the “Victorian Roll” treatment, having hair rolled up in the back to mimick the Victorian-inspired looks.
Hair was prepped dry using John Masters Organics Rose & Apricot Hair Milk, and in some cases, particular care was taken to ensure hair was dry most towards the roots to create that lifting effect. Due to the humidity inside and outside, the team took care to pin hair up – not to create curls, but to keep hair dry, frizz-free, and looking lived-in. Natural flyaways were left as they were and all the behind-the-scenes pinning action that held hair together took place on the right side.
