INIKA Organic has once again been the only 100% natural beauty brand to be invited to NYFW to create makeup looks for the runway shows of not one, but two high-profile designers; Jonathan Cohen and Chocheng.
After a great deal of interest from the success of its SS2019 shows, INIKA Organic chose to work with two designers who embrace cruelty-free and sustainable fashion. Both shows featuring INIKA Organic makeup artistry were completely free from fur and feathers, with the Chocheng show being 100% natural.
With two contrasting looks created for each designer, the first show to feature INIKA Organic was Jonathan Cohen. With a legacy of creating pieces inspired by Mexico, a hint of modern Manhattan and a laid back attitude of California, Jonathan Cohen's SS2020 show was all about bright patterns and bright makeup to match. With lead makeup artist Yuki Hayashi at the helm, INIKA Organic brought Jonathan's vision to life with all NEW limited-edition colours curated especially for the Jonathan Cohen Runway.
The Jonathan Cohen SS2020 Runway Look:
This show was big, bright and bold. Bright pops of INIKA's 100% natural eye colours stole the limelight and were teamed with INIKA's timeless bases, brows, lashes and lips to bring the entire look together.

The second show saw INIKA Organic create a contemporary take on a 60's natural chic look for womenswear designer, Chocheng. Chocheng's SS2020 draws inspiration from 1960 mystery thrillers Plein Soleil and Midnight Lace. It takes retro wardrobe references and reimagines them for the modern woman. Neutrals, tones of pink, candy stripes, monochrome and coral red worn with wood framed sunglasses, straw bags and platform espadrilles bring a fresh summer femininity to the season. Lead MUA Campbell Ritchie brought Chocheng's vision to life by using the most natural and elegant shades of pink in the INIKA Organic collection, inspired by Jackie O holidaying in Saint-Tropez.
The Chocheng SS2020 Runway Look:
INIKA's natural pinks and peach tones were used to create a naturally stunning modern 60's look teamed with INIKA's bases, brows, lashes and lips for a flawless finish.
