Yoko Ono’s Drawings And Texas-Sized Hair At Threeasfour

This Fashion Week we went backstage at a number of shows, and the makeup artists and hairstylists we spoke to were calm, cool, and welcoming even when there was only an hour or so before the models had to be dressed and ready to walk down the runway. The atmosphere backstage before Threeasfour, however, was a little different. Who knows what caused the storm — maybe the complicated makeup that required absolute precision to apply or the fact that celebrities were involved in the show — but it was tense back there. The lead makeup artist and hairstylist were wonderful once they were able to step away from their work to chat, but they had their hands full. Thirty minutes before the show was to begin, someone came back and announced that hair and makeup was to be complete “AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE” so the models could get into the clothes. And, just as I was leaving, I bumped into Sean Lennon, who was being interviewed and photographed like mad, adding another element of excitement to the scene. (I also thought I saw Yoko Ono, but now I’m pretty sure it was just a cute, middle-aged Asian woman.)

The reason for Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono’s presence was because Threeasfour designers Adi Gil, Angela Donhauser, and Gabriel Asfour were inspired by Yoko Ono’s dot drawings for the spring 2010 collection. Some of the drawings were turned into prints and used on elements of the collection. The dot theme extended to the makeup, too. Check it out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Yoko Ono To Give Piece A Chance

Now that Beth Ditto is designing a plus-size line and schilling for Chanel, has fashion found a new obsession? New York hipster designers ThreeAsFour are collaborating with one very special lady for their spring 2010 collection: Yoko Ono. While details on the September 17th presentation are still vague, editors and stylists are already atwitter with the news that Ono, who created exclusive prints for the line, might perform tracks from her much-anticipated upcoming album, “Between My Head and the Sky,” at the show. Either way, between ThreeAsFour’s predilection for experimental installations (during their fall show, models tended bonsai trees) and Ono’s “interesting” taste (she spent the earlier part of this year judging an interactive haiku competition and staging an exhibition of John Lennon’s final bloodied clothing), this could end up being THE event of New York Fashion Week. (Or one of them anyway.) Stay tuned… Keep reading »
