NYFW: RAFAEL CENNAMO BACKSTAGE & PRESENTATION

September 12, 2012


















As a contributor for the Icon Concierge I attended the Spring/Summer 2013 Rafael Cennamo presentation at Lincoln Center.  I also got to go backstage and take a closer look at the make-up process. 


Below is my article which you can also read here.
 
Rafael Cennamo’s collection was filled with edgy structured evening wear that brought a contemporary and classic vibe into his spring/summer 2013 presentation. The details in his pieces enhanced the texture, creating an alluring ensemble. Crystals and pearls were sewn into the fabric that created new patterns. One of my favorites was a mint green dress, with a folding fan structure covering the lower part of the face, intensifying the eyes.

When I entered backstage prior to the presentation, the first thing that caught my attention was the eye make-up concept. The make-up artists repeated the eyelash stroke under the eye, giving a reflected image. Once I got to see the finished look with the collection on the models, the make-up gave an overall dramatic edge.

This collection will make you wish you had an event to attend the second you see it.  The palette consisted of pastel, neutral and bright colors, combining the subtle and more outgoing tastes.
