Athleisure - - Athleisure House Nvfw Ss18 - PHO­TOG­RA­PHY Paul Farkas STYLIST Kim­mie Smith MUA Makeup PrO HAIR Aubrey Loots

This time of year is not only about en­joy­ing the last of sum­mer and bring­ing your fall wardrobe in, but it's also about look­ing at up­com­ing fash­ion and new items hit­ting the run­ways at New York Fash­ion Week. Athleisure Mag pre­sented its sec­ond an­nual Athleisure House NYFW SS18 with at­ten­dees in fash­ion, fit­ness, en­ter­tain­ment, in­flu­encers and me­dia. We were pleased to un­veil a project that our Co-Founders, Paul Farkas and Kim­mie Smith have been work­ing on - UG|RO Ugly Romper which is a line of rom­pers that are for the girl on the go whether she's run­ning er­rands, head­ing to a game, a power lunch, meet­ing up with her friends for brunch and go­ing out for a night out. Wher­ever she's go­ing, she's bound to shine in these looks.

This show had great sup­port from our sponors: Makeup Pro, Aubrey Loots - Wella Hair Pro­fes­sional, Kawaii Girl Cos­met­ics lashes, Qupid Shoes, Vera Bradley hand­bags and JBL head­phones. Guests en­joyed Truly Sparkling, Ice­landic Glacial, High Brew Cof­fee and Mochi­doki while tak­ing in a night on the rooftop of 50 Clin­ton (in the his­toric Lower East Side).

ATHLEISURE MAG: What are the ameni­ties of­fered at 50 Clin­ton St?

50 CLIN­TON: The build­ing’s plen­ti­ful ameni­ties in­clude a land­scaped rooftop of­fer­ing res­i­dents a pri­vate out­door re­treat with 360 de­gree views of the Man­hat­tan sky­line and am­ple space for out­door cook­ing, din­ing and loung­ing. Ameni­ties also in­clude a state-of-the-art fit­ness cen­ter, bi­cy­cle stor­age, and 24hour door­man.

AM: What is the con­cept be­hind the de­sign of the build­ing?

50C: Is­sac & Stern de­signed ex­te­rior is com­prsed of in­tri­cate brick ma­sonry and ex­pan­sive win­dows. In­side are 37 res­i­dences de­signed by ac­claimed in­te­rior de­signer Paris Forino. The el­e­gant ar­chi­tec­ture, with an ar­tic­u­lated red brick façade rein­vents the his­toric pal­ette of both in­dus­trial and res­i­den­tial build­ings at the turn of the cen­tury. 50 Clin­ton com­bines old-world chic with a mod­ern Euro­pean flair for an un­prece­dented qual­ity of liv­ing in the neigh­bor­hood.

AM: For those that are res­i­dents, what are the neigh­bor­hood sell­ing points?

50C: 50 Clin­ton Street is a bou­tique con­do­minium lo­cated in the heart of Man­hat­tan’s Lower East Side with in­cred­i­ble bou­tique shop­ping and great restau­rants in a fresh and young area. This is a thriv­ing down­town neigh­bor­hood where there is strong demand for a prod­uct of­fer­ing lux­ury at an at­trac­tive price point which is what 50 Clin­ton of­fers.

When it comes to jaw drop­ping dresses that are worn by your fa­vorite celebs - Jen­nifer Lopez, Bey­oncé, Toni Brax­ton, Ce­line Dion and Paris Hil­ton - Michael Costello is the de­signer who cre­ates stun­ning cre­ations that give them an ethe­real and sexy look. Michael is no stranger to Fash­ion Week; how­ever, dur­ing this sea­son's NYFW SS18, he had his first pre­sen­ta­tion which shared his line filled with di­ver­sity from skin tones, size and age. We took some time to talk with him as well as Michaela Po­laco, Lead Makeup Artist for INGLOT to find out more about this show.

ATHLEISURE MAG: We've been a fan of the brand for quite some time, what drew you to be­ing a de­signer and ul­ti­mately cre­at­ing draw drop­ping dresses?

MICHAEL COSTELLO: My love for fash­ion, fab­rics, sil­hou­ettes, but ul­ti­mately I al­ways wanted to be a de­signer to cre­ate gowns that em­power women, and high­light their beauty.

AM: Who have been some of your fa­vorite celebs to dress and who would you like to dress?

MC: I've dressed Bey­oncé, J Lo, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, among other beau­ti­ful celebs, and I would def­i­nitely love to dress An­gelina Jolie and Halle Berry.

AM: We love how so­cial you are as your IG posts in­clude phe­nom­e­nal style as well as in­sight into your per­son­al­ity - how es­sen­tial is this to your brand?

MC: I love shar­ing my cre­ations, and my per­son­al­ity through so­cial me­dia. I wear mul­ti­ple hats; I'm a dad, de­signer, a business owner and I think it’s im­por­tant to share this with the world.

AM: What in­spired you to cre­ate SS18?

MC: S/S18 was in­spired by the whimsy and ro­mance of clas­sic fairy tales. The col­lec­tion en­tices you with a dreamy es­cape from the monotony of the dayto-day, while ac­cen­tu­at­ing our sig­na­ture al­lur­ing, mod­ern sil­hou­ette.

AM: How im­por­tant is di­ver­sity in fash­ion and why did you de­cide to fo­cus on this in your show?

MC: Di­ver­sity is very im­por­tant in fash­ion. It’s not about cre­at­ing a move­ment or an ac­cep­tance, its more about re­al­iza­tion that all women come in all forms, shapes, and sizes and we at Michael Costello cel­e­brate ev­ery­one equally.

AM: What is the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the makeup look for the SS18 show?

MICHAELA PO­LACO: We’re con­vert­ing the idea that glam­our is some­thing re­served for the elite. The in­spi­ra­tion comes from our de­sire to ac­cen­tu­ate women’s nat­u­ral fea­tures. We achieved this by cre­at­ing very sup­ple, fresh and ra­di­ant skin, an ef­fort­less, wear­able yet sexy eye and a lip that looks stained from a glass of wine. The pal­ette is ethe­real yet evokes the thought, ‘I could pull that off.’

AM: Michael Castello's show is fo­cus­ing on di­ver­sity and break­ing bar­ri­ers, how is this aligned with the ethos of Inglot?

MP: INGLOT is one of the most di­verse brands on the mar­ket. From our ar­ray of eye­shad­ows span­ning the rain­bow; to our com­plex­ion prod­ucts made up of a va­ri­ety of tex­tures, fin­ishes and shades that range from the light­est of the light to the deep­est of the deep, with every skin type in be­tween. I think that Michael’s vi­sion is com­pletely aligned and com­pat­i­ble with that of the INGLOT; mak­ing for a dy­namic duo!

AM: What is the beauty look of the show?

MP: The Look:

· Skin: To cre­ate a dreamy ef­fect on

the skin, I mixed INGLOT AMC Liq­uid Il­lu­mi­na­tor with INGLOT HD Cor­rec­tive Primer as a base, so the skin ra­di­ates through the makeup look and lasts through­out the night.

· Cheek: Af­ter the base was ap­plied on the ap­ple of the cheek, I ap­plied INGLOT Sparkling Dust FEB #02 & #03 (frosted loose pow­der in light nude and bronze) to give skin a shim­mery look ac­cen­tu­at­ing each woman’s glow.

· Eyes: I wanted to main­tain the ethe­real feel on the eyes, so I mixed INGLOT AMC Pure Pig­ment in #115, a holo­graphic rose gold shade, with INGLOT Du­ra­line – It’s a magic serum that turns pow­der prod­ucts into cream or liq­uid. This cre­ated a long last­ing, high­shine metal­lic el­e­ment that mim­ics a glossy lid, with­out the mess.

· Lips: To fin­ish the look, I ap­plied INGLOT HoldOn Lip Primer, lined the lips with INGLOT Soft Pre­ci­sion Li­pliner #56 and fin­ished with INGLOT Sleeks Cream Lip Paint #91, a creamy, rosy long-wear paint with a glossy yet flat tex­ture.

AM: What are 4 must haves that peo­ple should have in their cos­metic bag from Inglot that al­lows them to get the look from the show, but can work well into their ev­ery­day rou­tine?

MP: INGLOT AMC Liq­uid Il­lu­mi­na­tor: Be­cause a healthy glow is al­ways nec­es­sary and you never know when your look will need a pick me up. This prod­uct was a ma­jor player in the Michael Costello looks.

INGLOT Re­fresh­ing Face Mist: Also a pick me up for the skin, whether you're ex­pe­ri­enc­ing over­heated skin and need a cool down or have dry skin that needs a drink of wa­ter. This was a key prod­uct used to keep skin look­ing sup­ple and youth­ful at the Michael Costello show. INGLOT Lash En­hancer Mascara: To cre­ate a full look­ing lash that's vo­lu­mi­nous yet de­fined.

INGLOT High Gloss Lip Oil: In­fused with many nour­ish­ing oils to keep your lips soft and healthy, it adds a high shine that can be worn alone or on top of your fa­vorite lip prod­uct to give an added kick. At the show, we also used it on top of mod­els’ high planes of cheek­bones for ma­jor skin.

AM: What was your path to be­com­ing a makeup artist?

MP: Start­ing from the age of 16, I ac­tu­ally spent many years try­ing NOT to be a makeup artist, but one way or an­other I al­ways found my­self back in the in­dus­try. I worked at count­less makeup coun­ters, and spent many morn­ings up at the crack of dawn - Some­times to do makeup for “Z list” celebri­ties, other times to work on brides that were fea­tured in VOGUE. I started at INGLOT as a reg­u­lar artist and three year later I’ve just fin­ished key­ing Michael Costello's NYFW pre­sen­ta­tion. What I've learned is, never say no to an op­por­tu­nity and al­ways ar­rive ready with your game face on, be­cause you never know who you'll meet or what jobs can lead to oth­ers. It’s a com­pet­i­tive in­dus­try that's al­ways chang­ing, so you have to pre­pared for ev­ery­thing and al­ways be will­ing to step out­side of your com­fort zone. I love be­ing a makeup artist and I’m so grate­ful I’ve ended up where I am sup­posed to be.
