Tomo Koizumi: Pastel Dreams

Japanese designer Tomo Koizumi made his NYFW debut with a show of extremes, presenting his large, voluminous pieces in frothy pastel fabrics on major models like Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski. The beauty look also bordered on the extreme, with hairstylist Guido wrapping the models’ hair around their heads into sleek, shiny head wraps, then adding extensions at the forehead and chopping them into jagged little baby bangs with a razor. “The bang gives the very simple shape an edge,” he explained, adding that his only product for the show was Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Hairspray, which locked the style in place and gave it a high-gloss finish.

Makeup artist Pat McGrath mimicked the jagged quality of the bangs with spiky, Twiggy-like lashes on all the models (courtesy of her FetishEyes Mascara), and sharp winged eye shadow (shown here) in the most delicate, twinkly shade of lavender on just a few.
