G-Star RAW (G-Star) is a Dutch clothing company specializing in making RAW denim. This is an unwashed, untreated denim. Many of the G-Star designs are influenced by vintage military clothing around the world, with details including pratical and eye catching cell phone and zippered arm pockets on jackets.
G-Star had it’s Spring 2009 runway show at the cavernous, Park Avenue Armory. The premium denim brand brings serious issues, along with it’s fashioanble denim, to the runway, as it promotes the United Nations for its Millennium Development Goals project. The show brings attention to a high level Milennium Develolp Goals event set for September 25th, 2008, in New York City. The event will renew the United Nations and its partners’ commitment to achieve a variety of challenging goals–ranging from reducing extreme poverty by half, to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS –and providing universal primary education by a tartget date of 2015. Actors Heather Graham and Alan Comming started out the show by walking the runway reading the Millennium Development Goals to show their support for the show, and the cause. The collaboration with G-Star collaborate and the United Nations brings socio-economic and political issues to a stage that makes it more than just a fashion runway.
The hair was a real focal point…. created by Avon stylist Marco (he’s from Brazil and has the #1 salon there) told us that women in Brazil like long shiny hair and love the Avon Advance Techniques Dry End Serum, and Avon Advance Techniques Mirror Shine Spray, plus the shampoo and conditioner. For the G-Star show, quite a few different Avon Advance Techniques products were used for the two female model’s looks, and on the guys.
To create the various curly hair looks, the model’s hair was sectioned into five parts, slicked with Avon Techniques Volumizing Mousse, and twisted, pinned to the head dry with Avon Advance Techniques Extra Strong Hold Hair Spray Later on, the hair was fluffed out. This is a sort of modern take on old-fashioned pin curls. You can do this at home and get a similar, flattering style…raw and pretty.

A multi-level platform, moving platform could be precarious for models, many of whom were on the runway, stopping and moving at the same time. But the models were at the Armory rehersing meticulously, all day. The well choreographed show, plus pulsing music and lights, made a dramatic setting for both the clothes and the models. Wide legs and slender jeans with menswear vests, looked great on the girls, while the guys were sporting skinny jeans. Black, sheer knee-highs give a “Cabaret” edgy look to pants outfits and trench coats.
Among the celebrities attending the show were “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier, stylist Patricia Fields, model and TV host Tyson Beckford, music entrepreneur Damon Dash, actor Josh Lucas, “Ugly Betty” star Eric Mabius and actress Mena Suvari.
