Fashion week in New York is always one of the best weeks of the year. Sitting front row surrounded by models, celebrities and fashionistas is a very exciting time for anyone with a love of fashion. I’ve been covering shows in NY as a stylist and editor for years and never grow tired of that energy you feel when the lights go down for just a moment right before the models and designer clothes hit that runway!
Since a designer gown is an amazing sight to see (especially on a six foot tall runway model with flawless hair and makeup), I want you to know how we make these looks perfect starting with undergarments. I’ve helped pair up a few friends for runway collaborations and bring you a show that has been a favorite of mine season after season.
Naeem Khan’s shows are those of magic. Evening gowns are made of the finest fabrics covered in crystals, beads and metallic threads that glimmer under the lights of the runway. This season celebs such as Kristin Chenoweth and Padma Lakshmi were sitting side by side with fashion editors from top fashion magazines. To finish off his gorgeous dresses, we introduced Naeem to Commando underwear and Philippe Matignon hosiery. With the perfect seamless thong, there wasn’t a panty line in the house. With Philippe’s gorgeous sheer black hosiery, we discover that they are the perfect final accessory to any evening look.
What a pairing! Naeem Khan, Commando and Philippe Matignon went perfectly together on the runway last week, another example that what you’re underwearing is just as important as what you’re wearing-you can’t have one without the other.
