VFiles Made Fashion
Since launching in September 2012, VFiles has become a culture-creating online destination for the fashion-obsessed. The social media-centered site features a vault of fashion media (encompassing every digital issue of Visionaire, V and VMAN Magazine, from which the site gets its name), original content and a highly curated store that has a reputation for putting designers on the map. Each year, VFiles hosts an online competition where hundreds of designers from around the world compete for a chance to show in the VFiles Made Fashion Show at New York Fashion Week. This year, designers Tigran Avetisyan, ZDDZ, Hamm and D.TT.K were selected. Lead hairstylist and Oribe Educator Kien Hoang worked closely with each up-and-coming designer to create a hairstyle that completed his or her vision. The night of the show, Hoang and other members of the Oribe Education Team, including Ronnie Stam, Louis Orozco and Coby Alcantar, crafted looks backstage for more than 50 models. Scroll through the slideshow above to see the looks and which Oribe products were used to create them.
