Shooting NYFW with Brian Lichtenberg

A loft with endless windows admitted a sunny glow to the Brian Lichtenberg presentation, casting perfection on models that fulfilled the expectations of what constitutes a "Lichtenberg model." Slicked back shiny hair and serious black smoky eyes accentuated big bright red pouty lips. The perfectly pointed manicured nails matched the flaming lips and looked as if they could be used as weapons to any possible snatcher that tried to pry away the gorgeous soft leather bags they carried. Models with looks as fierce as the perfectly styled outfits will be sending me on the hunt next spring for some key pieces from this collection, especially the see-through black mesh graffiti tagged shirt. Classically cut pieces covered in graffiti prints made this contradiction work, and very very well I might add.  Pants were slung down low on slim hips that exposed underwear donning the designers name, reminiscent of Calvin Klein circa the 90's. Pastel colored fur scarves in soft blue and lavender hung-out casually over the shoulder.  The models posed in front of a wall completely covered with an image of a chain link fence and palm trees in the background an ode, I took, to Los Angeles.  Brian Lichtenberg proved and showed me that he can take it to this other level of design and reached far beyond his sought after t-shirts.

P.S. The guests being a stylish distraction had my camera attracted to them as well.
