Runway Looks

warrior runway shots girls colorMore than the Organza morning coats,  the lace cutout sheer gowns and tulli tops, Coco Johnsen showed progression in this collection . A nod to the future of fashion and vintage inspired looks: joyous and just a little bit twisted, starting with the mask make up looks, jumpsuits and unisex skunk coats.

Coco Johnsen, “I wanted to experiment with this collection and I created a few men’s wear looks for the first time “.

We created vintage style moto jackets for men with embellishment on the sleeve and a unisex skunk coat.

Behind The Scenes Make Up

Coco Johnsen runway make up featured tribal looks and super comic book hero’s  inspirations for her Los Angeles Fashion Week show.

Make up this season was used more as a mask or a shield helping to create each character. The head of make up decided to use no highlighter and instead we used a lot of moisturizer to make the skin glow and luxurious grease pencils around the eyes. All make up sponsored by Star Looks.

Make Up : Fidel Gonzales, Mcintyre Management.

NAIL TRENDS

When it comes to her runway show fashion designer Coco Johnsen has taken into consideration every little detail. And no detail is smaller than the models’ fingertips, which this season showcased every nail-art trend around: silver stars, faux snakeskin, shiny metallics, single black polka dots and vintage model photo’s from her past career as a model. We rounded up her favorite nail looks for the 2016 Warrior Collection.

CASTING SESSION

CASTING SESSIONCASTING IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORATANT PARTS OF PREPARATION FOR FASHION WEEK

THE CASTING SESSION IS PRIVITAL TO THE LOOK OF THE ENTIRE SHOW BECAUSE I ALWAYS HAVE A VISION AND A STRONG IDEA OF THE TYPE OF CHARACTERS OR MODEL I WANT TO CAST.
