Organika Take New York: Fashion Week Adventures Part 2


After the great response we had to our first ‘Organika Take New York Fashion Week‘ post, we are pleased to present you with the second half of our amazing NYFW journey!  In this post we share highlights of styling sessions participated in by Lisa and Sarah in addition to a special Australian runway show from lauded local designers Tome. (PS – next time you need to attain symmetry in makeup or design, try closing one eye!)


Editorial styling on the run – Organika meets NYC style. Trends in hair, makeup and fashion are so global that these looks are as familiar to Elwood or Carlton as they are to the Big Apple.


New takes and techniques on classic styles – like this megawatt amplified chignon. An exploded version of Jacki-O style that would certainly suit your upcoming raceday events.


Wetlook beehives with graphic ‘square’ shapes and Bo Derek sex-on-the-beach dirty curls. Summer in Melbourne, here we come.

Organika Hair were pleased to be part of Tome’s Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear debut at New York Fashion Week. The fledgling two-year old brand from Australian designers Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin  create collections based around iconic women. Their Spring’14 collection is inspired by muse Cuban performance artist Ana Mendieta telling Broadsheet that “When we pick an inspirational woman for the season, she usually comes to us rather than us seeking her out…. she is articulated in clothing with complete reverence. We do not take these women lightly. We begin with a woman’s life and her output and the collection grows from this.” The runway show was more of a static art installation, rich with ‘earth women’ in evanescent tones of pink, mauve, sand and taupe. Positively reviewed, Style.com said that Tome’s collection was ‘made up of real clothes …. just like the women Lobo and Martin intend to wear them’.

Tome have a bright future ahead of them, nominated as CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists. To see more of their runway collection, click here.


Organika Take New York: Fashion Week Adventures


New York, New York. The city that never sleeps, the Big Apple, the town paid homage by hundreds of songs, films and artworks. Yes. New York. As you probably know from following our Facebook feed and Instagram (@organikahair), Lisa and Sarah recently travelled to New York to attend and work their skills at prestigious New York Fashion Week. Over the course of two blogs, we share their adventures, new styles you can expect to see straight off the runway, and ‘behind the scenes’ runway photography. Have you been to New York? What did you love about it most?


When in New York….


We had some schmancy fashion moments with luminaries of the trade…. here are Lisa and Sarah with the Salon Ruggeri team. Based in New York, this A-List salon to the stars is actually an Australian export!


… and were delighted by the amount of Australian fashionistas we bumped into! Here we are catching up with Dasha and Colin from The Trendspotter.


Backstage moments featuring goddess model muses and lots of EVO!


Perfecting the ponytail.


Education was an exciting part of our New York journey. We learned new techniques for volume and height! Big BIG hair, anyone?nyfwo8

Behind the scenes buzz and Sarah in action.


Inspiring hair for the Spring Racing season – a reverse braid with plenty of drama!


A woven braid for peek-a-boo glamour.


Looks you’ll soon see in editorials globally – square flat-tops (a la Chanel), Kesha-style loose waves, neat takes on the top-knot and more.
