Emerging Makeup Artist from New York Fashion Week: Andrea Cortimiglia

There is a thriving emerging fashion scene around the world! Fashion week is always one of the best times for the nextgen to collaborate and introduce themselves to the world. During New York Fashion Week Runway Passport and emerging fashion designer Jia Wertz of Studio15 threw a fun and fashion forward event at the Gansevoor Hotel in the meatpacking.

Not only did we have a great time introducing our designs to the fashion world, we also love to uncover talented makeup artists. We had a great time working with emerging makeup artist Andrea Cortimiglia. She is definitely one to watch on the makeup artist scene. Get to know a bit about her below!

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A MAKEUP ARTIST?

I always loved makeup and trying new brands and products. What made me want to become a makeup artist was the outcome of the application & seeing the look in my clients eyes of how much they love how they look! It’s about making people feel beautiful and I love that I can help them feel that!

WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE MAKEUP ARTISTS?

Mario Dedivanovic, Patrick Ta, Hung Vanngo

WHAT ARE SOME MAKEUP TRENDS FOR THIS SEASON?

Some trends I’ve seen for this season are dewy skin, bold lips, thick-not so perfect eyebrows

Beauty, Diversified: How Fashion Weeks Unite a Diverse Global Community

Have you ever pored over pictures from Fashion Week and thought to yourself:
Wow, that looks like me. I look like that model! And I feel beautiful.” ?

emerging-fashion-designer-runway

If it hasn’t happened yet to you, it definitely will soon. Fashion is always changing, and what’s currently in style doesn’t just depend on what’s hot in Milan or London. In fact, the looks on the runway are intricately connected with cultural standards–and no two countries see beauty the same.

Go to Brooklyn and on the runway you’ll see that familiar waif-like look, made popular by Twiggy so many decades ago. Then fly over to Manila, where designers look to a fuller figure, and you’ll be met with the polar opposite.

Though there are outliers in every culture–a curvier girl might struggle to book a job in Berlin, while she’d find plenty of opportunities at Lakme Fashion Week–the true beauty of fashion lies in its diversity. If we all looked the same, and if every designer thought the same, what would be the point?

lakame-fashion-week -5

As we grow fashion into a global community, more and more we’ll realize that all of our interests are represented. Big, small, short, tall, dark-skinned and light–each one of our many traits is someone’s inspiration, and it’s Runway Passport’s goal to connect us all with the styles and unique designers that fit our identities best.

After all, fashion shouldn’t make anyone feel bad. No type of beauty is “better” than another–they’re just different. And–though this may go without saying–models are more than clothes-hangers! From Mumbai to Berlin, no two fashion weeks are the same–and that’s precisely the way it should be.

What you see on the runway from one city (or country) to the next is a cross-section of cultural celebration. What we said earlier about seeing models who look like us–that’s in part the point of these fashion weeks, which exist to honor different sorts of beauty through our infinitely many perspectives.

Whether or not individual fashion weeks embrace large-scale diversity, they’re making so many views of beauty accessible to the whole world. In turn, seeing these variant aesthetic preferences can lead women (and men!) everywhere to understand that all types are beautiful, and that no one is “better” than the others.

This diverse view of fashion, we hope, will ultimately grow to apply to us all, no matter where we live. After all, thanks to digital media, you can be in the “front row” of a fashion show that’s thousands of miles away.

With the help of the Internet and its vast global community, we’ll build one group, united, that wholeheartedly loves and celebrates all kinds of beauty.

At Lakme Fashion Week 2015, blocked-out colors, billowing fabrics and shiny black leather made an appearance. So did sleek curves and well-muscled thighs–models on this runway literally glowed with health.

(Some seriously voluptuous statues made an appearance, too.)

Models strutted and stunned at Philippine Fashion Week. And boy, did they impress upon us that looking strong is what’s in style. Shot from below, these ladies resemble Amazonian goddesses–or, at the very least, swaggy stylistas! Intricate beadwork, faded flower patterns and leopard print looks right at home on these confident and curvy  bodies.

Berlin (Photos: Facebook/Berlin Fashion Week)

Ah, Berlin–an epicenter of creativity, punk, and Lady Gaga-esque looks. The models may fit some stereotypes–they’re slim and young, by all accounts slightly androgynous–but by no means are they typical. And, as on all runways, they work in tandem with the clothing’s experimental shapes and lines to showcase the designer’s innovative ideas.

In one showcase, an impossibly curvy tulip-shaped skirt is juxtaposed with a model’s thin-hipped frame, projecting themes of both fertility and youth. In another, velvet and soft, furry materials provide contrast to sharp cheekbones and defined features. In Berlin, it seems, fashionistas can have their cake and eat it too.

New York (Photos: Facebook/New York Fashion Week)

New York Fashion Week is everything you’d expect from Gotham and more. Between light-dark statement garments and pattern-on-pattern pieces, designers are constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s “in.”

Likewise, in a time when models in some places have come under fire for low body weights, NYFW is pushing another kind of boundary. Not everyone has to conform to the same beauty standard, and that’s exactly what we see with such slender models on the New York runways. Body shape is a personal choice, and it seems that NYFW has decided that skinny best fits its aesthetic.

While that has been the overall push of the fashion industry and has caused a lot of harm, this “ideal” balances out into just an option when we start to centralize the global fashion weeks of the world. This artificial ideal of the thinner the better becomes just another type of beautiful body to have instead of “the only” beautiful body to have. 

In a global context it works as a celebration of just another body type Evidence: “I love designers that make women feel like women!” Alessandra Ambrésio of Victoria’s Secret said in 2012 of the show. Sounds like she really felt a connection with others who walked at Fashion Week.

London (Photos: Facebook/UK Plus Size Fashion Week)

One of the newest showcases to grace the global runway is the UK’s Plus Size Fashion Week. Held in London, the event was held for the first time in 2013 and is the largest of its kind in all of Europe.

Here there’s a true diversity of bodies: not all plus-sized women look the same, and proportions differ just as they would in a straight-sized show. The 2015 lineup featured lots of fluffy detailing, such as feathers, fringe, and even big, teased hair. Whatever your own aesthetic preference, I think we can all agree that Plus Size Fashion Week boasts formidable fashion and talent. As 2014 panelist Laura Puddy said of the event, “It truly was amazing to see an event celebrating diversity and promoting that you can look and feel good no matter what your shape or size!”

We’ve gotta say “amen” to that, as we celebrate another beautiful body type.

Dakar (Photos: Facebook/Dakar Fashion Week)

Dakar Fashion Week is awash in vivid color, stunning contrast, and couture that calls on culture. Impressive cheekbones and bold statement makeup are ubiquitous; the models’ jutting poses and sculpted expressions embody a brand of fashion that’s all at once futuristic and traditional.

Like in NYFW, the models are thin, but the effect is different. Where New York’s showcase succeeds by being muted and understated, Dakar Fashion Week wears vibrancy and life on its sleeve.

        dakar-fashion-week-01 dakar-fashion-week-2 dakar-fashion-week-3

While super thin still does dominate most runways, as you look to the fashion industry on a global scale, there is more diversity in terms of beauty. Hopefully this will lead to all different types and shapes of beauty being equally valued and celebrated in all locations. We don’t expect it overnight, but it definitely is moving in that direction.

Recap from New York Fashion Week SS2017

Once again, our favorite time of the year in New York arrived,  which is no other than NY FASHION WEEK!!! This past week we got to enjoy some fabulous collections  from some fabulously talented designers that we were privileged to experience. We enjoyed seeing some of our old established faves on the scene that many of us and our very talented emerging fashion designers were inspired by, as well as of course the excitement of discovering new talent. Here are the three shows I attended. Enjoy!

– Joanna S of Le Chic

 

ALICE & OLIVIA

 

alice & olivia

This amazing presentation by Alice & Olivia brought an amazing collection that compiled bohemian edginess, which is what this known designer stands for. They are an inspiration to emerging designers in the sense that they can really think outside the box and create many looks that come together cohesively in one room.

GEORGINE

georgine

Georgine has been an emerging designer with exquisite talent for some time and we really do love this designer’s style and watching her grow. This collection was a lot different than her usual collections from the past in the sense that she incorporated more “punk” looks to her collections than her traditional girly, lace looks. This was great because she was able to create something much different than her usual style and she still succeeded which shows how great of a designer she is indeed!

 

ART HEARTS FASHION

art hearts

The designers from Art Hearts Fashion are very inspiring to all emerging designers and new talent because these designers shared a similar theme and heritage which was exuded in their collections. This season, it was for Serbia Fashion Week so the designers were able express their culture in their designs which were executed perfectly. From laser cut leathers, to beading, to large gowns, there was a vast variety of beautiful looks that took you through the designer’s journey.

Tony Cohen @ AMSTERDAM FASHION WEEK JULY 2016

Amsterdam Fashion Week Spring/:Summer 2017: Tony Cohen Runway + Backstage
Photographer : Giusy de Ceglia

Established and renown Dutch Designer Tony Cohen showed his collection Restrained and Release during Amsterdam Fashion Week SS17. This collection was very personal to him and represented his personal feelings of being stuck versus the feeling and relief of being released and free.

The difference between those feelings was expressed in an elegant and creatively designed all black and white collection. Restrained was expressed in corsets, leather belted waists, material cinched by ribbons, criss-cross material over the neck – and an elegant nod to bondage. Freedom was expressed in loose fitting airy clothes that one could feel how loose, flowing and free one would feel in them just by looking.

Overall a lovely collection that visually captured the two opposite emotions and feelings beautifully and authentically,

Amsterdam Fashion Week Spring/:Summer 2017: Spijkers en Spijkers Runway + Backstage
Photographer : Giusy de Ceglia

Fashionable twin design duo, Truus and Riet, presented their “Eden Collection” at Amsterdam Fashion Week. This collection is designed for strong and independent minded women who like a challenge. In line with the paradise “Eden” theme, the background for the runway was a palm tree lined tropical beach complete with a soundtrack of crashing waves.

Fun prints filled this collection which was a combination of youthful and elegant. Designs consisted of chiffon dresses and tops with vibrant prints referencing snakes in a garden. Sweatpants are made stylish with leaf prints (possibly Karl Lagerfeld will no longer consider sweatpants a sing of defeat) and paired with a shiny coat.

Lively prints, colors and cuts made for a girly, playful and fashion forward collection.

Fashion Designer Monique Collignon presented  her Haute Couture SS2017  ‘The conscious collection’. She created a collection that was socially responsible in every area from the working conditions to the  environmentally friendly fabrics.  The fabrics were made from recycled PET bottles that were sourced from Waste2Wear and each item has  a label stating the number of bottles it took to produce.

Monique Collignon is one of Amsterdam’s established fashion forces. She graduated from the fashion academy in Rotterdam in 1983 and today is known for her elegant and feminine top quality designs. She has dressed famous Dutch and international celebrities for the red carpet and has had pieces from her collection exhibited in Amsterdam Historical Museum as well as the Gemeente Museum Den Haag to represent historic Dutch design.

This season she can be very proud to be the first designer to use such recycled materials in a haute couture collection.

Jolie van Dijk – Fresh Face to Watch on the Runway @ Amsterdam Fashion Week July 2016

Amsterdam Fashion week has kicked off with a very stylish start and a perfect blend of familiar faces and up and coming emerging designers. In the model scene a fresh face to watch returns to the runway for her second season of shows is porcelain skinned Jolie van Dijk who was elegant and glowing in both Dennis Diem’s  Runway Show  and Karim Adduchi’s Runway Show.

This model was discovered at 15 by Dutch Fashion Photographer Giusy de Ceglia who is known for spotting unique new faces. She was taken with Jolie’s unique features and her presence. She has both a sweetness (in real life as well as showing through on the runway) and a sophistication. A classic model with a bit of an edge that looks as if she is a blend of The classic Teen Vogue girl with the Nylon edgy fashion forward girl.
