Backstage Beauty at Zac Posen Fall 2012

Backstage at Zac Posen, Fall 2012

You cannot get more creative and beautiful and inspirational than M.A.C artist Kabuki. It was such a pleasure to see Kabuki’s work on Zac Posen‘s runway. As Kabuki said the look was about “the tradition of Geisha of Japan is re-envisioned as a sleek couture confection. Shades of ultra glamorous stars for a bygone age- Lara Turner, Marlene Dietrich mixed with an edgy new wave angularity”
