New York Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2013

Diego Binetti Stuns with Underwater Grace at NYFW

 If fashion designer Diego Binetti is not already on your radar he should be.  His Spring/ Summer collection at this season's Fashion Week took its audience on a mystical journey through the underwater world with romantic, hand painted chiffon garments that gracefully floated down the runway.  Deriving inspiration from fairytale mermaids and Yemaya the African- Brazilian goddess of the sea, Binetti merged undeniable beauty with his acute sense of style and brought to life an unforgettable memoir of his travels to the runway. 

Makeup artist Sebastien Tardif for Veil Cosmetics created a water color drenched look for the catwalk. Evening skin tone, he created a moist, dewy glow throughout the face using a liquid powder as the base.


Soft lavenders and gentle pinks were splashed over lids and drawn out towards the hair line to create a captivating focus on the eyes, topping them off with hints of gold on the inner corners.  Using concealer and a warm shade of coral, Tardif finished with a muted lip.  The superstar product used to help create the look was Veil's Illuminating Complexion Fix for Face and Eyes.  Its formula is light, hypoallergenic, non irritating and made with both soothing and brightening properties.  The most enchanting aspect of the look was it wear ability.  Describing the look as "youthful" Tardif refrained from using any liner or false lashes.  Instead the look enhanced natural beauty and created a fresh, modern look for the everyday girl to wear.

To complete the overall look Binetti paired with CND Hands, Feet, Beauty and began working with various foundations and stacking concepts.  Using CND's signature clear tip as his base, Binetti designed a 3 tiered, multi dimensional nail.  Binetti used natural pearls as inserts between layers of complimentary shades stacked a top one another, giving it a 3-D effect.  Each nail had a clear base, a layer of CND's Tropics Coral and Black Jack, and 2 pearls.  The stunning originality of the nails added depth and fantasy to the collection.  In an effort to take "the runway look into commercial" as Binetti said, CND modified wearable versions of the nail using similar color schemes.  They are exquisite variations and are the perfect eye catching details to complete any look.
