That’s how New York City based model Deddeh Howard feels and that’s the inspiration behind her “Black Mirror” project.

Social media filled with responses to Marc Jacobs' use of dreadlocks in his New York Fashion Week runway show.

This past week, Marc Jacobs closed spring 2017 New York Fashion Week. The designs were beautiful, the staging was gorgeous and the hair was...pretty controversial.

Model Stacy Fernandez shares her journey of getting ready for the Rip the Runway fashion show on Friday.

“This is nothing like last year. It’s not hectic, there’s no yelling, it’s weirdly calm,” said one of the girls doing hair and makeup.

“Calm?” I think. Nothing about this is calm, at least not for me.

Backstage isn’t what I expected. It’s not actually behind the stage, rather there is a set of stairs that leads to a room directly underneath the stage. This is where the real show is.
