#StyleWithEDEN #NYFW 2016 Recap

September 16, 2016

stylewitheden-tobnatural-bannerOn Tuesday, Sept 13th, EDEN BodyWorks hit the Helen Mills Event Space & Theater for their first ever New York Fashion Week showcase #StyleWithEDEN. The evening featured two amazingly talented designers: ONION Cut & Sewn by Whitney Mero and Chen Burkett NY.

The “Curl Whisperer” herself Felicia Leatherwood killed it on hair and MUA Camara Aunique finished off each look.

Wearing a gorgeous one-shoulder number by ONION herself, #StyleWithEDEN Mistress of Ceremonies Africa Miranda kicked things off and guided us through each look while Kéla Walker worked the green carpet, catching all the fab styles and hairspiration.

Chen Burkett New York

stylewitheden-chen-burkett-safariThis NY designer hit us with this super stylish safari themed presentation. I love all four designs so it’s hard to choose a favorite. I LIVE for earth tones, especially in the fall! Accessories by metalsmith Shayla Milan complemented each piece.

Felicia Leatherwood talked about the various techniques used to create a variety of textures on each model using EDEN BodyWorks line of products. She loves the Coconut Shea Control Edge Glaze for the finishing touch.stylewitheden-chen-burkett-felicia-leatherwoodstylewitheden-product-displayHow gorgeous are these styles?!stylewitheden-hair

ONION Cut & Sewn by Whitney Mero

stylewitheden-onion-cut-sewn-whitneyHaving a very “womanly” shape herself *ahem*, Whitney Mero creates silhouettes that not only make you look beautiful but they’re so comfy, they “feel like lotion”… her words LOL! But just from the looks of each dress in person, I believe it! Even her form-fitting dresses, as she says, are made to embrace your curves but leaves room for snacks. A useful feature! HA!

This time, accessories by Lorraine West accented each dress.
