On Wednesday night, The Blonds, who have dressed everyone from JLo and Cardi B, to Sharon Stone, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga, presented their larger-than-life designs that accentuate the human form, with some athleisure thrown in.  

‘This is the second installment of our limited-edition collectible print series which is the accessible line already available, and its inspired by one of our signatures – the chain hardware,’ said David.

‘We revamped one of the original pieces we did, photographed it and then printed it all over everything you could possibly imagine.’

It’s The Blonds answer to athleisure. 

‘We’re taking this high level of glamour and stamping it on something you can wear everyday and still feel cool and amazing.’

When attending one of Phillipe and David’s runway presentations, you expect head-turning looks, an eclectic crowd and a show! 

‘The performance aspect is super important because a show is meant to be a show as far as we’re concerned,’ said David.

‘We were always inspired by Gaultier, Westwood and Galliano, and all these artists that did things that were super over-the-top and we just want to live that full fantasy every time we do it and we want to bring everyone else along for the ride.’

The runway presentation ended with a performance by singer Saucy Santana dressed to the nines in a black velvet catsuit with glittery gold fringe around the waist and accenting the shoulders.

 This collection leads up to the launch of their very first cocktail table book entitled “THE BLONDS: GLAMOUR FASHION FANTASY” published by Rizzoli.

‘I’ve known The Blonds for many years and I’ve always respected them, they’re such beautiful people and they attract that,’ said fashion designer and fixture in the 1980s downtown club scene, Diane Brill.

‘If you’re a musician or an actress or anyone in the public eye and you’re at a point where you can buy one of these corset dresses, you’ve made it; it’s a mark that says you’ve made it,’ she said.

‘Its essential, it’s every day, day or night, and user friendly.’

Of the 18-piece assortment, Amra is most proud of the lip set. ‘You need all three (lip pencil, lipstick and gloss), they complete each other. I’m a big nude lip girl, it’s my favorite part of my makeup routine because it completes the entire makeup look.’ 

Her best beauty tip? ‘Lip hydration and exfoliation is crucial! 

‘If you put lipstick or lip-gloss on dry chapped lips it will not look good and the product won’t last; you might get cracking and the lips will look dehydrated. 

‘Apply a lip balm like 20 minutes prior and then exfoliate the lips before applying any lipstick.’
