Styling a group show is never an easy task but “The Ones to Watch” went very smoothly. All our designers were well organized and most of our models arrived early. The show before us was running late – which meant we had plenty of time, so we were off to a good start!
We had four very different designers. First there was Studio-805, men’s and women’s by Andrew Bannister – everything is red and white including the eyes – contact lenses! Then we have the lovely Kumiko Watari of the Migh-T, knitwear specialist Alice Palmer, who’s hats no one can resist and ethical men’s and women’s designer Lu Flux. Interestingly enough every collection had a few hats!
I’m not even sure how many hair and make up assistants there were but the room was packed! Tony and Guy did the hair and Rachel Wood for Benefit did the make up. The call time for our show was 4 hours before show time so everyone had to work efficiently and as a team. You’d think with four different designers with four completely different looks it would be a challenge but we all had one common goal – we wanted the show to go well- and it did! I’ll post some images of the catwalk show once I receive them.
