Thread-Like Stripes Tie the DEGEN Show Together

China Glaze Degen2

Casey Herman for China Glaze created stunning stripes and bold colors to bring together the Fall/Winter collection at the DEGEN Presentation at New York Fashion Week.

Working off DEGEN’s rainbow thread concept, Herman conceived of a design that would compliment the bright and joyful tones of Lindsay’s collection. Herman wanted something fun that would bring everything in the collection together.

“For the striped nails I mixed and matched China Glaze colors to reflect the many variations of thread in the world,” said Herman about her nail art. “I gave all the models accent nails of the same colors to pull all the nail looks together with a ‘common thread’.  We didn’t want to forget the male models and gave them a bold single tonal stripe to again reflect the ‘common thread’ theme.  I love the idea of individuality but that we are also all part of humanity; that’s why all the nails are different but relate to each other.”
