Texture Rules the Runways at Fashion Week

From crimped waves to crazy curls, texture was on display along with the fall '09 ready-to-wear collections

In years past, a handful of designers trotted out a few curls and kinks as a novelty. But most stuck to slick chignons, conservative bobs and other straight styles.

While those styles were still in abundance at the Fashion Week Fall 2009 Collections in New York, more designers than ever showcased waves, curls and kinks with their ready-to-wear fashions

At the Chris Benz show, it was curly bobs. Models at the Catherine Hostein show wore big messy waves. Models at the Herve Leger show sported curly ponies. Sexy waves were the look at Diane von Furstenberg. And big kinks strutted down the runway at Rachel Comey.

As co-founder of NaturallyCurly.com, a website for curly hair she began with her business partner and friend, Gretchen Heber, Michelle Breyer helped create the leading community and resource for people with curly hair. Frustrated by the lack of information on curly hair and the limited products available in the marketplace, the duo launched the site in 1998 with the help of a 14-year-old web designer. When Procter & Gamble called three years later to advertise to the NaturallyCurly.com® audience, Breyer knew they had indeed created a force in the industry, providing helpful information and unparalleled expertise for what was then considered a niche market.
