Tuesday, September 18, 2007


designer: christopher kane
event: spring 2008 showing at london fashion week
location: victoria house at bloomsbury square; london, england
synospis: the clothes were nothing to look at - until the models slipped them on. ditto for shoes, hair and make up which all came together beautifully to compliment a very solid and stellar collection.two models showcasing flawless, "innocent," hair and make up. the inspiration for clothes, hair, and make up? carrie, the teen horror queen played by sissy spacek.

great minds think alike. i pcked out these two dresses as my two favorite of the collection and womens wear daily actually featured the one on the right on today's front page. check it out at

kane's finished look on a model. it looks fabulos. don't you agree?
this girl is fierce! her energy was awesome. her name is tara she is 16 and signed with storm model management in london.
make up artists hide blemishes on a models leg.

how do i say this...christopher kane is kind of a big deal. at only 24 (my age!!!) this boy has earned his masters degree from central saint martins (my school!) and has launched a successful, star studded, fully sponsored graduate show. the hype surrounding him as a college student was made good yesterday with his first showing at london fashion week. when i first got backstage i was shocked to learn that not only was guido, master stylist for redken, doing hair for the show - but gucci westman was on make up. huh!? this is his first show! i was in for more shock when i saw that manolo blahnik did all the shoes for the collection. and the ultimate head banger? anna wintour, personally came back stage to review the collection before it showed. as you can see from my shady pics (lol!) not only was i standing right behind her - i was the only blogger there!!! can i get a high-five blaynistas?! check out more pics of this at glamblush on and let me know if you loved or hated these clothes!
