I do not often speak about politics on the blog or my social media channels. Occasionally I post my sentiments on social movements like BLM and #metoo. But for the most part my blog and my YouTube channel are a forum where I create content that inspires and topics that I am passionate about such as fashion, beauty and photography. But sometimes one is pushed to the limit of keeping silent. So I am sharing with you an experience of sorts that motivated me to speak out. Granted this is not an earth shattering event, but eye opening to be sure.
There will not be a live Fashion Week this season here in New York. Fashion Week will only be three days, digital only and no audiences. No live attendees. Very strange. Apparently it was the same for mens fashion week and couture and both were flops from what I understand. So, is this the new normal? Even after the pandemic? My guess is no. But at any rate today we will be looking at the makeup trends of 2019 and the changes for 2020 and the difference between FW and editorial makeup and the looks we see on social media. Hope you enjoy!
Yup we are full on in to summer and I am forging ahead with my NYFW photos taken in early February. What now seems like a life time ago with everything that has been happening. Is there an end in sight? I don’t know. I can’t lie. I am depressed, anxious and worried about the future. Looking back at these photos does give me some solace. But also a bittersweet sense of something that may be lost forever. But I hope you enjoy these photos of attendees and models and a fashionista in training!
I was able to get out again for a second time (third time if you count the BLM protest) I went to seaside town called Babylon and even did a little shopping. It was great to get out and bing able to shop gelt surreal. I had a gift card from Christmas that I had not been able to use up until now. I found two super fun pieces and discovered a new store.
