Shows she worked on included Mackage, Irina Shabayera (winner of Project Runway season six), Toni Maticevski, Mara Hoffman, Graeme Armour, and Vessel by Lois. So proud of this girl.

Here is a sampling of some of the looks we helped create at Lead Stylists for Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman's Spring 2010 showing at New York Fashion Week, held at Touch Nightclub in Times Square on September 11, 2009. The photo quality is a little rough, but we hope to receive better images soon. All jewelry is by ROX by Robyne Robinson.

This is Celia Ammerman, a former contestant on "America's Next Top Model." She was a dream to work with!

Above is Sarah Bradford, the aspiring model sister of Matt Damon.

This is Shannone Holt, a model from last season's "Project Runway." (She was Kenley's model.)

This is the multi-talented Kennan Miller, who just got off the off-Broadway touring production of "Footloose." (He played Willard.)

So many beautiful male models! And they were all lovely to work with.

RetroRama in review

Eclecticoiffeur were lead stylists for the annual RetroRama fashion show at the Minnesota History Center on May 21, and it turned out marvelously. The show was held under a tent on the grass as the sun was setting; it really couldn't have been any more magical. Here are some images from the show:

The show started off with a 1920s-era dress from Via's Vintage and a hat by Lula's Vintage Wear. I was inspired by the idea of sophisticated travel that became the norm in the '20s.

It was followed by Max Lohrbach's brilliant take on the 1920s luggage and aviator style with a two-piece look and hat. A great detail was the leather luggage strap sewn to the back of the jacket. The hand-beaded hat with leather trim was also quite amazing.

A 1930s-era dress and hat from Lula's worn with gloves from Via's. I was inspired by Bonnie & Clyde for this look.

This amazing dress, handbag and headpiece were created by Ivan Idland. He was inspired by flour sack dresses, surrealism, and the upper-class look of the 1930s, and basically combined the styles of the poor and rich in this piece. The deep scoop back of the dress, not pictured, was probably the best part about it. The dress, coupled with the surrealist handbag and headpiece, made for the most impressive look of the night.

This 1940s-era gaberdine dress and hat are from Lula. I was inspired by the military "Bugle Boy" styling of the '40s.

This gorgeous washed silk dress and hat were created by Abigail Caperton of Princess Warrior. She was inspired by women's uniforms of the 1940s.

This 1950s-era dress with matching jacket were a nod to the family-oriented, suburbia home look worn by many a housewife throughout the decade.

The all-over print dress and matching jacket, inspired by 1950s Davy Crockett illustrations and legends, were created by Calpurnia Peach. The amazing coonskin cap came from the Guthrie Theater's Costume Rentals shop.

I chose this 1960s-era dress and pillbox hat (all from Via's) because it seemed so Jackie O. By a happy mistake, the model Elmira bore a striking resemblence to Jackie O.

The 1960s-inspired look by Sarah Holm of Re-Evolution was an ingenius take on Jackie O, post JFK's assassination. She says it was inspired by the mix of red roses and blood on the car seat after JFK was shot. (There is a splatter-dyed bodice under the sheer overlay.)
