Academy Of Art University Excels At The NYFW Shows

For new names in the fashion industry, there cannot be a better platform than the New York Fashion Week. This is the place where new talent is discovered as it comes into the limelight. Now, The School of Fashion of the Academy of Art University recently had its 21st runway showcase for the year 2017. This was organized at Skylight Clarkson Square. There were ten BFA and MFA graduates who made their debut here through five womenswear, besides two menswear collections. It also featured two collaborations.

There was an individual spirit that could easily be seen in each collection. These designers from the Academy of Art University come from a diverse background themselves. They belong to mainland China, coastal Maine, and several other far-off places. This was clearly reflected in the wide range of ideas, as well as silhouettes besides the craftsmanship techniques that made a big impression on the audience.

Even though the show lasts for just 15 minutes on the runway, it is backed by innumerable classes, and workshops, besides internships as well as a lot of painstaking labor. These budding designers presented their creation in front of the peers, as well as their potential career mentors besides the whole world since the show was being telecast via livestream.

Academy of Art University says that these designers will inspire as well as lead the next generation of those who are innovative and creative.

The favorite looks cannot be ignored by anyone. Hailun Zhou belongs to Qing Dao, China. She is a designer from the Academy of Art University. Her inspiration comes from her observations as well as the photographs that she took when she was on a journey for a creative class on concepts. This led to the creation of outerwear, as well as separates besides dresses. These were made of vinyl or PVC, or fabrics made by fusing several materials together. Zhou got selected for the CFDA Fashion Future Graduate Showcase in 2017 due to her creativity and her vision for the future.

Eden Slezin is another designer from Academy of Art University. She comes from the Bay Area. He is influenced by vintage denim, which is reflected in his creations.

Lime Crime’s CEO Doe Deere Reveals Favorite Beauty Routine Products

It’s fun to know what kind of products a hip beauty company owner would use, right?

 

The CEO and founder of Lime Crime makeup is dishing on her favorite makeup and skin care items. Doe Deere recently gave the scoop to SavoirFlare.com, and we’re liking her style.

 

Before the violet-haired beauty gets going creating that pretty canvas, she gets psyched listening to vintage 60s pop. Doe Deere loves The Beatles and their iconic Abbey Road album. She also hangs with her two favorite puff balls, her Persian cats, Puffy Fluffles and Chester von Battingham.

 

Doe Deere always begins her morning drinking a whole glass of water which she claims is essential for the drying air of Los Angeles. She stretches and then sits down to a healthy bowl of grits.

 

When it comes to caring for her gorgeous complexion, the Lime Crime creator is hooked on a rose-scented gentle face wash by Glossier. Then she applies Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence for hydration.

 

Lime Crime has not come out with a makeup foundation yet, but Doe Deere is busy developing one with a unique formula. For now, the beauty guru chooses L’Oreal’s True Match foundation or one by MAC’s Studio Fix. Blending the makeup in balances her skin tone and delivers a flawless face when she sets it with powder.

 

Doe Deere fills in her brows and then begins enhancing her features with her two favorite beauty items, blush and lipstick. She usually selects a pink blush for her cheeks and a bold pink or red lip from her super popular Lime Crime Velvetines line.

 

Doe Deere’s go-to liquid matte lippies include Rustic, Red Velvet and Pink Velvet.

 

Her beauty makeup routine can take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on how key the event is for her day or night. As far as those sexy purple strands, Doe Deere prefers showering late at night, so her long locks are dry and ready for styling when she awakes in the morning. The curling iron is her best styling tool to achieving her signature glossy violet waves. Doe Deere likes to wear her hair down to show off the color and bounce of her healthy hair.

 

Check out Doe Deere’s lipsticks here. The famous Velvetines not only deliver amazing staying power and exceptional pigment but also dry to a smooth, velvety finish. These lipsticks are cult faves.
