Jay Godfrey was my first presentation of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on February 6th, at the new Hub venue in the Hudson Hotel. New to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Jay Godfrey Fall 2014 is inspired by 70s classic rock-n-roll, mixing modern day glam into the looks with sequins, fringe and vegan leather. Jay Godfrey also draws inspiration from rockstars' stylish offspring such as Theodora Richards, Zoe Kravitz and Peaches Geldof.
Pattie Yankee and her team created three custom "rock n' roll" inspired nail looks using Patricia Nail Lacquer in Void and Inspire Nails in Clear Almond. For the leather nail art, Pattie utilized fringe from the collection to create a stripe down the center of the stiletto shaped nail. Black lace was adorned over Void polish to create a textured nail look. For the third nail look, metallic purple striping tape was placed in a "V" with the black polish to match the sequins used on dresses in the collection.
