  • First comes sportswear, then comes sporty skin

    It’s a beauty trend popping up on Fashion Week runways: glowing — almost sweaty-looking — bare faces. 

    Fashionista reports seeing the dewy look at at least four shows at New York Fashion Week so far: Alexander Wang, Creatures of the Wind, Prabal Gurung and DKNY.

    This is one very wearable look we’re excited to embrace — it certainly beats this “marker liner” look.

     “What makes our gifting lounge unique is the fact that we’ve always had a charitable component,” says Koifman. “In the early days, we partnered with Big Brothers Big Sister. As the concept grew, we partnered with different charities like Artists for Peace and Justice and Best Buddies.
