Christopher Street got trunked on Wednesday night as Byrdie Bell hosted a soiree at cute boutique A Man & A Woman for young label NAHM, named for the mixed-up initials its designers, Alexandria Hilfiger (she's ditched Ally, at least professionally) and Nary Manivong. A crowd of Georgia May Jagger, Christian Cota, Timo Weiland, Rebecca Minkoff, Fern Mallis, Jenne Lombardo and Derek Blasberg came dressed apropos in NAHM. The trunk show runs through next Wednesday--and this Saturday afternoon, the duo will be styling at the store, so we asked Manivong for a few styling secrets. Check out the Gallery for more party pics.

What's the NAHM styling approach?
It's definitely going to be pretty organic, and it's all about the shirtdress. Our whole collection is based on it! 

Why style in-store?
It’s the starting point to see who’s grabbing what off the hangers, and what the process is behind that. I think we'll have a better idea of what works and what we'll do for our next collection as a result.

What's the feedback been like so far?
We'll probably know more after the trunk show! Some of our friends are placing orders, which is really exciting.

Any must-try items yet?
Our mesh pieces have been our hotcakes so far, so that's going to be our signature core piece from here on out.

This week, accessories maven Colette Malouf is featuring her coif-crowning pieces front and center on Fifth Avenue in a window nook of Henri Bendel. Chic popped in as Malouf was mid-French twist tutorial on a smattering of enchanted customers. Her spring collection, wrought with undulating wire panels, sprinklings of pearls and other under-the-sea inflected creations, will be at Bendel's until May 16, and the designer herself will be popping in to work her magic. Check out the Gallery for all of Colette's chic and easy how-to's!

You're quite literally in Bendel's windows. How're you feeling? Exposed?  Elated?
I feel like I grew up with Bendel's; it's the first place I came with my Malouf Poof, and I was here every day showing people how to do their hair. Here I am 24 years later, doing the same thing.

Have you styled much since then?
Oh, yes! I'm always doing hair at my sample sales. There are so many variables: face shape, texture, thickness, cut, personal style... And the weather! That, too.

What about your own hairstyle trials and tribulations?
Things got pretty crazy in the '80s. When I was in college, I used to go for any cut, literally. I’d let them do whatever what they wanted! For a while, I had hair that was really, really, short in the back and really big volume on top! It was embarrassing. Another time, a hairstylist gave me a cut that looked like these bowl cuts worn by specific group of people who live in the Amazon. I’ve done it all.

Any intereresting tress tales from day one of your return to hands-on styling in Bendel's?
One challenge was layered Asian hair, with an onion cut. I got it into a conical French twist, and you’d never know she had short, layered hair. I started with an elastic, I made a ponytail in the center of the head and then twisted the hair around and put a comb in. A girl with long hair that almost reached her knees came in earlier today - we put it up in a serpent twist. It was just unbelievable, and totally shocking. I got it all up in one hairpin!
