My former business partner in Eclecticoiffeur (and Minnesota native) Kelsy Osterman has been taking New York Fashion Week by storm for the past couple of years running, via Cutler Salon. So far this fall, she's worked backstage doing hair at shows for Nicholas K and Project Runway Season 6 winner Irina Shabayeva. She shared some exclusive photos and deets with me today.
On Nicholas K: "This was the official start of fashion week. Very cool. The New York Times were filming it because it kicked off Fashion Week at Lincoln Center.
Side fishtail braids.. Always cute. It was a military inspired line with tons of drappy layered muted greens, greys, and leather. Check out the collection photos. Really cool stuff. I wanted most of it."
On Irina: "She did a presentation.. Not a show. She actually did all gowns. Kind of unexpected coming from her. The venue was a beautiful bar in Chelsea. The models we up on pedistals . Really gorgeous with the big gowns billowing down to the floor.
Rodney Cutler (owner of Cutler Salon) was the lead."
Expect more to come from Kelsy before Fashion Week ends.
