A few weeks back, the team and I collaborated with some amazing Philadelphia area retailers and the Philly Inquirer for a fall fashion spread. (You may have seen it.) It was an amazing day filled with fashion, art, and style — and we were honored (and thrilled) to be included among the styling team! ARS Stylist, Erin Gallagher styled the hair for the shoot and I worked on the makeup.
Last night, the who's who of the Philadelphia fashion and retail scene — as well as Erin, Rachid, and I — came out for a special "Fall Fashion Event" at the Inquirer building in downtown Philadelphia. It was a panel discussion lead by famed Philly.com and Philadelphia Inquirer fashion journalist, Elizabeth Wellington. Along with me, the pannel was composed of Ellen Shepp (from Joan Shepp) and Ann Gitter (Owner of Knit Wit) representatives from Theory and Alica DiMichele.
Each of the designers styled the model — Malika Miller — to show a look that best represented their brand's signature style: Ann Gitter worked the theme of the shoot (monochromatic styling) along side the recurring texture trend. Ellen Shepp showed the crowd how to do the athleisure trend right before offering a word of advice. "Play with your look and try different things" she advised the crowd, "And, if at the end [of the getting ready process] you don't feel good leaving your house... don't."
Known for their mastery of minimalism Theory showed off a look combining texture and monochromatic colors while the Alica DiMichele team showed off the art of sexy.
In the world of makeup... It's all about berry colors on the lips this season; warm, cool, and everything in between. I recommend layering up; you can't go wrong with an ombréed lip and don't be afraid to go bold — deep reds are in!
After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Brooke Lanier spent a year in Italy and later earned her Masters of Fine Arts degree in Painting fro the Tyler School of Art. She's roamed the world; showing her art in Rome, Prague, and across the United States; most notibly the Smithsonian Institute's S. Dillon Ripley Center and the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
Her latest show, Going Away Without Moving opens on Thursday and is widely inspired by the artists own sense of adventure. "I took the title from an eight year old friend of mine" Lanier said, "He was going on vacation, but not going away. For me, it's an internal thing. You can go away without leaving where you are. The landscapes have contemplative meanings."
While the official number of pieces to be on display has yet to be finalized, the show's work has taken more than a year and a half to prepare and most of them are very large. "You're put in your place" she says, referring to the peripherally expansive pieces, "But, in a good way."
Thursday and Friday's "Going Away Without Moving" showcase is free and open to the public on the 4th Floor of the Camac Center — adjoining to the 12th Street Gym in Center City Philadelphia. (201 Camac Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107.) Light refreshments will be served with informal artist talks. Can't make the dates? Contact Brooke for a private showing.
In a recent article for the coveted style guide's digital site, Green lists ARS Parlour as a must-visit destination for your Saturday to-do. She goes on the praise master stylist Rachid for his masterful work, "His skills will make it hard for you to stop checking your hair out in every window you walk by."
André, Rachid and Stephanie were honored to be a part of a beautiful Mother's Day Fashion spread for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Jumpsuits - whether toe-touching, strapless, or cap
sleeve rompers - are among the most versatile of
this spring's fashions.
Yet despite the slip-on appeal of the all-in-one, we tend to ascribe age limits and height requirements when it comes to deciding who can wear them.
"Jumpsuits aren't appropriate for women over ___ ," or "You need to be at least ___ to pull one off."
Nothing could be further from the truth.
