In review: Local style-makers do Fashion Week

I just got images back from local photographer Stephanie Colgan and local hair stylist Jen Hughes, both of whom participated in New York Fashion Week this past February.

Colgan, who shot for
The New York Times for the third year in a row, told me, "I thought Mara Hoffman and Sergio Davila had really remarkable shows. I shot the DKNY show for The Times and I really thought it was fantastic. Meticulously crafted and perfectly tailored." Colgan also shot Vena Cava for The Times.

Colgan's take: "Matthew Williamson was fun if a bit out there."

On this shot, Colgan says, "This is a fave of mine that was in a backstage slideshow on the New York Times website. It's backstage at DKNY."

On the above, Colgan says: "I always like Dennis Basso for furs, hats, shapes - that kind of thing."

In other news,  Jen Hughes - a Juut Master Stylist and Aveda Purefessional Educator - worked backstage on six shows this year, including Tommy Hilfiger, G Star, and Christian Siriano (of Project Runway fame). Her favorite, unsurprisingly, was Siriano's. For more on the show, check out my write-up in last week's issue of

Images from backstage at the Christian Siriano show:

The show also featured a preview of Siriano's shoe and handbag collection for Payless, due to hit stores in Fall 2009. (Can't wait! They look hot.)
