The Venexiana woman is luxurious, sultry and not afraid to make a bold fashion statement. The vision came across utterly in the hands of Kati Stern. Her ferocious yet elegant gowns while on The Lincoln Center Runway made many a hearts race. Rich colors, lush fabrics, a heavy dose of metallic, intricate beading and even blush color ruled the collection.
The models walked down with their high slits and low-cut back gowns and punk rock music played as a backdrop. The hair and makeup complimenting the gowns was dramatic, edgy and luxe in the hands of Philip Pelusi, who is the founder of Tela Design Studio and Tela Beauty & Mehron for the makeup looks.
