I wanted to focus on the Hispanic designers who showed at NY Fashion week for Fall 2011. Overall, Latino designers delivered on beautiful and extremely elegant clothes. Nothing too trendy but still with an edge! As far as the makeup, there were a few repetitive trends. Stained lips and cheeks were the it thing for sure but always paired with an unexpected pop of interest. We are seeing more and more brows these days even though some model's bleached out brows were left alone but overall a more defined arch seemed to be in vogue for Fall.
Eyes were not a big focus on any of these looks, the strongest look was Oscar de La Renta's Brigitte Bardot kohl rimmed eyes but the cheeks and lips were stained and looked like the girl had just come in from running out in the cold snow.
There were a few shows that featured the strongest lips trend for the season. Deep purple lips and the guys at Custo Barcelona delivered with perfectly "icy" skin and matte merlot lips.
One thing that did stick out was Juan Carlos Obando's look. The girls had their hair slicked back with what seemed to be globs of gold paint. Quite a contrast to their makeup which was all natural except for the heavy brows.
Top trends in NY in my opinion;
1- Purple lipstick
2- Berry stain lips
3- Flushed cheeks
4- Smoky but very well blended eyes
5- Gold eye shadow
6- Heavier brows
Here are some shots of what the Latin designers sent down the runway. What are your thoughts?
