The latest fashion and makeup trends weren’t the only stars of New York Fashion Week. For the third year, NaturallyCurly staged its Texture on the Runway event. This year more than 700 influencers, members of the media and other industry executives attended the September 7 fashion show at Gotham Hall. Hosted by NaturallyCurly.com cofounder Michelle Breyer and professional hairstylist Monica Stevens of MoKnowsHair, the theme was Real Women, Real Fashion, Real Texture.
“At Texture on the Runway, it’s all about the textured hair,” said Breyer. “Although more brands and designers are embracing texture, traditionally Fashion Week has been a seasonal reminder for many women that their beauty is not the right kind of beauty. For years, NaturallyCurly has been working to change that conversation, and that is why we feel it’s so important for Texture on the Runway to take place at New York Fashion Week every year. Because representation matters.” With more than 60 percent of men and women having some form of textured tresses, Breyer said it is more than a niche market.
NaturallyCurly teamed up with Sally Beauty to produce this year’s event. Karonda Cook, director of merchandising for Sally Beauty, said Texture on The Runway
