‘Tis the season to crave ultra-cozy knits, and Eviana Hartman of Bodkin didn’t disappoint on that front when she trotted out her eco-conscious Fall/Winter 2011 collection at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday night. Hartman drew inspiration from 1951-52, a painting by abstract-expressionist Clyfford Still that appears as a scarred, blackened canvas at first glance but gradually resolves into a landscape of dueling textures and tones.
“Everything reminds of Eviana,” says designer Samantha Pleet says of Bodkin’s fall collection.
But a fashion show isn’t a matter of simply pulling on clothes. Backstage, Tata Harper plied the models with organic mini-facials and aromatherapy treatments. A team from Abba Pure Performance Hair Care conspired with Hartman to create artfully disheveled tresses for the “everyday eco-chic girl” using botanically based styling products. And to give the girls that fresh, not-quite-made-up glow, Hartman relied on MAC Cosmetics’ minerals line.
