One of the more lively shows this past Fashion Week was Mark and Estel. Their “Old World” Fall/Winter 2014 presentation brought out fashionistas, celebrities and the industry elite. The collection was inspired by Victorian trends which included pieces like a silk cape and a military style coat-dress. Black was the predominant color used, but there were splashes of white. Leather and wool were also used throughout the collection, which is perfect for any rocker.
Actresses, Taryn Manning of "Orange is the New Black," Vanessa Ray of "Pretty Little Liars," Rutina Wesley from "True Blood," singer/songwriter Skylar Grey and "Dancing with the Stars" alum Maksim Chmerkovskiy in addition to Nylon Magazine’s Dani Stahl were all spotted in the front row.
The designers closed the show with a surprise over-the-top performance of their song, “Forward To The Old World,” which was highly entertaining and fun. Other guests in attendance included celebrity trainer, Tracy Anderson, singer, Lily Lane, Rachel Heller and celebrity stylist, Kim V.
Following the show, everyone headed Hotel Chantelle for the official after party to celebrate the designer’s new collection. Guests sipped on ZING Vodka and munched on signature dishes from Hotel Chantelle Executive Chef, Seth Levine.
The show was presnted by Zoya nails, Lift Lab, Avant Garde, Paul Mitchell, Smashbox, Lush, Lipstick Queen, Glays Tamez Millinery, Goergie Beauty, Beauty Blender, Yes To, Black n' Skull and Deos. DJ Safety Scissors curated the music.
