MESS Makeup Hosts cristóbal.skot Spring/Summer 2006 Collection

MESS Makeup and its team of artists collaborate with the designers of cristóbal.skot and famed shoemaker Christian Louboutin to present next year’s fashions as part of New York City’s Olympus Fashion Week.

New York, NY, September 12, 2005 --( The latest designs of up-and-coming fashion team cristóbal.skot will be unveiled at MESS Makeup on Friday, September 16th, at 4 o’clock p.m. This invitation-only runway event will take place in MESS’s store/studio space in midtown Manhattan. In addition to hosting the show, MESS is providing cristóbal.skot with an elite team of professional makeup artists who will be working their magic on all the models behind the scenes.

This will be Cristóbal Trejo and Skot Stargardt’s second collection under the label cristóbal.skot. French couture shoemaker Christian Louboutin has designed all of the shoes for this Spring/Summer 2006 collection of high-end eveningwear (gowns, suits and separates). Friday’s fashion show will feature 20 looks inspired by the cultural convergences of Latin America and the Caribbean.

“We are very excited to host and participate in the cristóbal.skot fashion show at our facility,” says Katherine Brewster, MESS Makeup’s co-founder and head hair artist. “Their last show was so impressive – a really stunning debut. Our team of artists participated in dozens of shows this Fashion Week, but this event is special to us because Cris and Skot are local, New York-based designers.”
