EXCLUSIVE: Maybelline New York Partners With Made

-------

MADE FASHION WEEK SS12 at MILK STUDIOSIn the past few years, Made has steadily become a highlight amid the chaos of New York fashion week. Launched in 2009 to boost emerging talents, the twice-yearly project has become a hub for the style set, allowing everyone to catch shows by brands like Cushnie et Ochs, Public School, and Ostwald Helgason all in one place. Not to mention, the Meatpacking District venue is conveniently located next to New York’s best late-night bars and restaurants. (PS: The Spring 2015 designer lineup was just announced.)

This time around, Made has partnered with Maybelline New York for a revamped experience. Maybelline will be providing creative direction, backstage prep, and, of course, buckets of cosmetics and supplies for over 10 Made designers. The partnership will include the Made for Maybelline Film Project, a video incubator that will enhance the already-solid platform Made has provided its designers. The incubator will ask eight filmmakers to use mixed-media techniques to create a 30-second video inspired by the trends seen at the shows.

A panel of judges, including Milk Studios and Made cofounder Mazdack Rassi and Maybelline president David Greenberg, will award the best video with a fiscal donation and the chance to work on a bigger Made film project in February.

EXCLUSIVE: Made Fashion Week’s Spring 2015 Lineup

-------

MADE Founders-sized
Since it launched in 2009, Made fashion week has increasingly been one of the highlights of the New York fashion week calendar. Its founders (pictured), Jenné Lombardo, Mazdack Rassi, and Keith Baptista, have continued to bring a slew of fresh talents (as well as more seasoned vets) into the fold, and this season is no different. They’ve just released their Spring 2015 lineup to Style.com, and they have 10 new additions—including Zana Bayne, Koonhor, Chris Gelinas’ CG, and Maison Kitsuné—to the Made programming this season.

“What really excites us is newness and visually stimulating shows or presentations,” Lombardo told Style.com. “With names like Zana Bayne, we’ve really enjoyed watching her trajectory—we’ve been fans from the sidelines. With others, like Maison Kitsuné, we have been friends with them for a long time and we’re just excited to have them joining us,” she said. They will be showing alongside returning labels like Public School, Tim Coppens, Jeremy Scott, and Sophie Theallet.

Other highlights this season include Gareth Pugh’s Lexus Design Disrupted show and an event presentation by Olivier Saillard, the director of the Musée Galliera in Paris.

Exclusive: Made Fashion Week Announces Its Fall ’14 Lineup

-------

Jenné Lombardo, Mazdack Rassi, and Keith Baptista

Since Jenné Lombardo, Mazdack Rassi, and Keith Baptista launched Made fashion week in 2009, the program has helped such stars as Altuzarra, Suno, and Hood by Air gain their footing. And while Lincoln Center’s Fall ’14 schedule is thinning, Made’s lineup is robust as ever. Of course, there’s that little fact that the latter picks up the designers’ venue, production, hair, and makeup tabs. But on cool factor alone, if you’re an independent or emerging talent, the initiative’s Milk Studios and Standard Hotel spaces are inarguably the hottest spots to show. Today, Style.com can exclusively reveal Made’s Fall ’14 schedule, and it’s packed with exciting newbies like Azede Jean-Pierre, Charles Harbison, CG by Chris Gelinas (who won the second annual Made for Peroni Young Designer Award), Maria ke Fisherman, Baja East, Highland, and more. “There are a few things that are important to us,” offered Lombardo of the competitive selection process. “There’s obviously the talent side—we want to share beautiful talent with editors and buyers. We also want to make sure that [our designers] have a sense of business, because we invest a lot of money and time into this program,” she said. “We want to ensure that we’re investing in brands that are going to be successful—maybe not even financially, but that are going to at least make an impact on culture.”

Also on the docket for Fall is Australian designer Dion Lee‘s debut Made romp (he showed in New York for the first time last season at Eyebeam Studios in Chelsea), as well as CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award-winning label Public School. After presenting with Made for the past few seasons, the brand’s designers, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, will be holding their first bona fide runway show. “Every season I’m excited because I get to see the evolution of these designers’ collections,” said Lombardo. “We really get involved with their processes. The designers know that we’re humans—we’re not just an organization—and that they can always talk to somebody from the Made team.”

Just in case there was any doubt about Made’s cachet, Lombardo told us that the T-shirts for the MFW’s Fall ’14 Parsons interns were designed and donated by artists Daniel Arsham and Chris Stamp. “They’re really great-looking, and they’d be really expensive,” Lombardo chirped. “It’s stuff like this that’s exciting for us—we get people who are part of our culture approaching us and wanting to participate. If we weren’t who we were, we’d have to beg people for stuff like this. It’s just kind of cool.”

Have a read through all twenty-eight designers on Made’s Fall ’14 schedule, below.
