As I made my way by NYC taxi from midtown to the meatpacking district I had only my imagination to draw upon and ponder what designs the Oribe team would be creating for the Diego Binetti show. Fortunately, I had done some research on past shows of his to at least get a taste of his style in general, which I found to be beautifully romantic and ultra feminine.
Upon arrival at the Westbeth Gallery and amid the usual set up was the extra added charm of an old New York City building…circuit overload! Fortunately the team lead by the cool headed Adam Livermore was up to the task and we all stepped up and kept things going smoothly until showtime.
As for the look, Diego was going for something feminine but with a gothic, rock and roll chic feel, and Adam had flawlessly created the hair that so perfectly personified that look. Classic marcel waves framing each model’s face imparted an angelic quality while the straight lengths with a subtle hint of rough texture gave it the right amount of edge.
Adding another dimension to the show were the FUnits playing a live gig highlighting their latest release entitled “Alone in Babylon”. This combination of fashion and music was enough to ignite the crowd and start an impromptu dance party which truly captured the theme of the entire show…..
