NYFW Extremes

We find New York Fashion Week most exciting when the pendulum swings from one extreme to another.  Take Betsey Johnson’s vivacious show, celebrating the designer’s 50th year in fashion.  Looks included creations by Morgan Taylor Lacquer lead-artist, Danielle Candido, featuring a groovy blend of neons (left), using a psychedelic water-marbeled effect, and a geometric pattern (center) of black-and-white, filed square.  On the other end of the spectrum was Chris Gelinas’ presentation, showing fresh fashions for the sophisticated, powerful woman.  Here Danielle Candido created a satin-finished nail look in a bright poppy shade called, Sweet Escape.

Hudson Kors

Kate Hudson and Michael Kors have teamed up to support a UN campaign to end world hunger.  The Watch Hunger Stop campaign, launched in 2013 by the World Food Program, feeds more than five million kids annually through its School Meals Program.  Kors, recently named a Global Ambassador, is introducing two unisex watches from the Bradshaw Watch collection this October.  Proceeds from each sale will feed 100 children.  Hudson will aid Kors in thelaunch as well as the promotion.  “Not only does she have a unique star quality but she also brings an incredible amount of generosity and a can-do attitude to a cause that is extremely important to me personally,” Kors said in statement, adding, “I’m grateful to work alongside her and WFP to make a real change.”
