NY Fashion Week Kicks Off In Eco-Sartorial Style :: The Be EcoChic Event.

NY Fashion Week kicked off in eco-sartorial style last night with the Be EcoChic event, held at the incredible American Museum Natural History. Hosted by uber model and eco-activist Angela Lindvall (wearing bright green re-purposed DKNY – cut short to show off her endless gams), the roster of brands made for some diverse mixology on the runway. Well known eco-designers such as Debra Lindquist (who has dressed celebs like Gwen Stefani, Demi Moore, Paris Hilton & Charlize Theron), Loomstate (Rogan Gregory), Del Forte and more, rubbed shoulder pads and bamboo fabrics with brands like DKNY, Levi’s, Nicole Miller et al. Celebrity walkers included Tamara Feldman (Gossip Girl), Dominique Swain (Alpha Dog, Lolita, Face Off), MTV VJ Coltrane Curtis, with appearances by the eternally chic & gorgeous-at-sixty-something Lauren Hutton.
The heavyweights weren’t confined to the runway however. The makeup looks were created by none other than Matin, a vegetarian, organic vegetable growing (in his NY apartment no less), cosmetic scientist and molecular biologist. Yep. And you thought beauty was just frivolous business! Afghani born Matin was inspired by his childhood for the smoky, sultry eyes seen on the models & Olesya Rulin above. Both men and women would line their eyes with a mix of sweet almond oil and soot creating heavily lined, exotic looking peeps that offered sun protection and warded off the ‘evil eye’. Thank god there are other methods of achieving that look these days without resorting to your knees, spoon in hand and a recently used fireplace.
