New York Fashion Week Recap

chrishabana1

This past New York Fashion Week, I had the chance to model for CHRISHABANA fashion jewelry line, Spring/Summer 2014 Collection — “TecTonic.” Each of us models had to hold a strong stance on a raised platform for the entirety of the event, displaying the jewelry beautifully to all the guests and look good for the countless photos taken. Half the models were painted in silver and the other half, including me were painted in rose gold glitter on our arms, legs, combed through slicked back hair and forehead, with rouge on our cheeks. It was a chic futuristic alien-esque look and my particular look consisted of a silver arrow-like jewelry piece glued between my eyebrows, sparkling silver earrings and a gorgeous glittering silver and pale purple necklace that the crowd ooh’d and aww’d over, proclaiming it the favorite piece of the night.

This TecTonic CHRISHABANA jewelry collection “drew inspiration from linear seismic readings, geomorphic shifting plates and joy’s division’s unknown pleasures album, presenting a sophisticated jewelry collection evoking primitive futurism.”
