The Blond Experience: @TheBlondsNY SS16 Runway Show

The lights were tricked fantastic at last night at Milk Studios as the fashion elite came together for the runway show of rock & roll glam designers The Blonds’ Spring/Summer ’16 RTW collection. Fashion 101 sidebar for anyone who are not familiar with this fashionable duo. The Blonds make up of Phillipe & David Blond and are known for their over the top designs, creating the ever famous bondage bra for Lady GaGa’s “Paparazzi” video.

Celebs in attendance for the front rows were Kelly Osbourne, Lady Bunny, Amanda Lepore, Patricia Field, ANTM’s Jay Manuel and the Divine Miss M, herself, Bette Midler.

“All gold everything” was their theme for Spring. The Blonds expressed how the Egyptians revered in gold, for they believed that gold was a divine and indestructible metal associated with the sun. The Pharoah was called “The Golden Horus” and the skin of the gods was believed to be golden, as well.

The show started off with Philippe giving a grand introductory walk down the runway in a gold Isis bodysuit with detailing that is absolutely stunning! Gem-encrusted motorcycle jackets, 24K gold details, reptilian dresses and without saying, the blonde wigs, followed suit. The Majesty Black gloves effortlessly accentuated the collection, but that black crocodile bustier maxi dress was the piece that just makes me wanna say “shut up and take my money”. Being a child of the nightlife, I was 100% sold. The collection certainly brought a huge aesthetic to the show, reminding me how fun, sexy and glamourous the scene is, and will always be. I had a fantastic time.

House of LiJon took center stage with the latest collection of handmade chainmail pieces. Mixing the ancient art of chainmail with modern glamour, House of LiJon perfectly demonstrated the versatility of the medium, creating the visual experience of an array of materials.

A color palette of dark blue, red, orange, and yellow, paraded down the runway showcasing printed patterns and a telling fluid narrative.

A sophisticated take on youthful ready-to-wear, this futuristic black and white collection featured creative color blocking, volume skirts, and sleek men’s shorts.

Pops of black and teal accented the tailored menswear, while light flowing dresses came alive with purple floral patterns. Men and women’s leather bags by Carat23 brought trench coat looks to a whole new level. Amato Haute Couture by Furne One closed the show with the darkly romantic “Love is a Battlefield” collection. Magnificent dresses of deep hues emblazoned with intricate embellishment stormed the runway.
