The Fall 2016 Season of #TheBlonds Runway show was inspired by Alice in Wonderland, and filmmakers Gregg Araki and Quentin Tarantino.
The show opened with Phillipe Blond walking down the runway with a hot pink leather number with matching hot pink leather high boots. The ensembles included over the top outfits with vibrant colors, materials and #Preciosacrystalsas well as yellow and pink dreadlock hair do's. The overall look, sexy, stylish, daring and fabulous. It would have been great to have seen identical twin fashionistas and founders of UrbanBushBabes.com Cipriana and TK Wonder Quann rock their natural beautiful do's down the runway modeling The Blonds outfits prior to seeing the other models with the colorful long dreadlocks.
As usual, The Blonds Runway shows never disappoint showcasing an array of ensembles well-known artists have worn including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Madonna to name a few.
THE BLONDS Runway show at MILK STUDIOS had a full house and regular invitees including photographer and accessories designer of Fleur'd Pins Andrew Werner. Other attendees included Ty Hunter, Olivia Dope, Dianne Brill, Susanne Bartsch, singer Sharaya J, Gigi Gorgeous, Vicky Jeudy, Kyle Farmery, J. Alexander, Eman B Fendi, Jay Manuel, Morgan Hill, ZZ Ward, Tea Hacic, Michael Musto, Jillian Mercado, Perez Hilton and Amanda Lepore.
The runway show followed by the official after-party at TAO Downtown with cocktail waitresses wearing outfits by THE BLONDS and performances by "ballerinas" with lit tutu's and short blonde wigs. This was probably one of the most perfectly executed fashion week after-parties as all guests were provided with TAO Hors D'oeuvres throughout the evening and specialty vodka mixed drinks for the night.
