Rita Remark, not a stranger to designer nails during fashion weeks, has done it again at New York Fashion Week, where she was the Essie lead manicurist crafting the talons for Jill Stuart, Nellie Partow and Wes Gordon.
On what inspired the looks at Jill Stuart, Remark says, “The collection was inspired by a reformed rocker chick; an “it” girl with a grungy Parisian flare. So, I opted for a manicure that brings out each models natural nail beauty, without looking over-polished.” For Nellie Partow, Remark created flattering, textured hues to complete the look of a confident, modern Englishwoman that inspired the clothing. On nail designs at Wes Gordon, she says that matched the luxe satin among several decadent textures and achieved the satin finish by layering Bordeaux, a jelly-like opaque colour, overtop of metallic Penny Talk, then finished with Matte About You.
Remark also assisted in DKNY, Diane von Furstenberg, Rebecca Minkoff, Alice+Olivia, and many more shows and Essie sponsored a total of 26 shows during NYFW.
