"Edgar Allan Poe started an exploration of the heart of darkness that kick-started the art movement of symbolism, which inspired 20th-century surrealism, and, in turn, altered the direction of literature, arts and fashion." - Stefan Miljanic, Gilded Age Designer
"The look for Gilded Age had a poetic feel – keeping looking tailored but with a natural disheveled finish. This complimented the clothes beautifully as the collection is one of a poetic, tailored feel. This look works best when there is longer layers through the front area especially ." - Jenny Balding, NYC Cutler/Redken Stylist

- Redken For Men dishevel is perfect for most hair types to create the finish for this look.
- Use small amounts and starting at the crown work your way forward to the front to create this slight disheveled, poetic look
Designer: Nicole Miller
butter LONDON still holds its title as the number one, go to nail polish of NYFW, appearing on almost every runway. Its Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes was armed and ready backstage at the Nicole Miller A/W show as she used it to create a dynamic, eye catching look.
Lead Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador
The Scoop: The collection was inspired by strong women warriors. Predominant colours in the collection included dark plum, light olive, wine, aqua and black paired with muted jewel tones.
The Look: Katie applied butter LONDON Nail Foundation to the nails followed by butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black. She then matted the look by applying butter LONDON Matte Finish Topcoat. Using a thin striping brush, Katie applied butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Knees Up – starting at the cuticle and creating a feather or flame like design along the nail. The shiny finish of Knees Up served as the perfect contrast to the matte black lacquer that popped at the tips.
