I have admired Bora Aksu‘s work for many years – it’s very visceral feeling, sometimes you just like something because you like it and it doesn’t need defining.

Peter Lang – The Cuff

Posted by Rebekah Roy on September 27th, 2010

PeterLang Cuff Peter Lang   The Cuff

I love a cool cuff. Something big but not too big, a bit rock ‘n’ roll and a bit vintage – not so easy to find but Peter Lang has quite a few styles to chose from! He’s is based in Australia but his style is very London. All the pieces are hand cast and are often adorned with Swarovski crystals.

“Each piece I design is a product of the love of my craft. The main function of any piece I design is that of total wear-ability. It’s so pleasing that Peter Lang jewellery can be worn season after season giving the customer timeless joy. I hope that my jewellery designs of today are the Antiques of tomorrow.” – Peter Lang

Makeup at Saloni Lodha

Posted by Rachel Wood on September 26th, 2010

Saloni Lodha Makeup at Saloni Lodha

During London Fashion week I always try to pop by a few shows or presentations in between the shows I am working on. It’s so much fun to rummage through another makeup artists makeup bag to see what products they love to use. I went to see the Saloni Lodha‘s presentation headed by makeup artist Georgina Graham and sponsored by MAC. Georgina wanted the models to have the feel of hot house flowers. The look was really beautiful. It was delicately highlighted and had an interesting lip that went from tangerine blended into a violet purple. It had a sense of ladies in the steamy heat of New Orleans. I fell in love with this new lavender MAC fix+ she was using. It looked gorgeous on the model’s skin. I loved it so much that I went straight to the MAC Pro shop to get some only to be told that she was using a sample of a product that hadn’t even come out yet, as were quite a few of the products she used! MAC often test runs their products with various artists during fashion week before they mass produce them. Oh the makeup envy!!

An interview with Makeup Artist Lan Nguyen

Posted by Rebekah Roy on September 25th, 2010

Theartofbeing elizabethemanuel makeup An interview with Makeup Artist Lan Nguyen Lan Nguyen was the head makeup artist for The Art of Being by Elizabeth Emanuel and she shares a few tips with us on her couture makeup look.

What was the inspiration for the makeup?
LN -The inspiration was based on make up that is Paris Couture. The treatment of John Galliano’s catwalk shows which are full of style and colourful make up. I wanted to capture the element of this show’s style which is dramatic and beautiful with a fantasy element of doll like features.

How did you come up with the concept?
LN – After taking a look at extreme couture make up I decided to convert it into a london style which Elizabeth Emanuel had requested. By merging together the Paris feeling of beautiful groomed features such as the eyebrows and lips with exaggerated eyelashes. I studied mannequins and dolls from natural to extreme which helped me decide on what parts I wanted to play up. Then it was about mixing in the London smokey wet look with effortless grooming.

What products did you use?
LN – I used the first colour cosmetic range from Rituals which consists of pure precious stones such as pearl and jade which conditions the skin. Also the key look was the perfect matte to satin finish red lip where I used the lip pencil and Lip Jewel Lipstick which has an intense color. On the eyes I used Perfectionist eyeliner for a strong gloss finish and Intense Look masacra for volume eyelashes. Also added eyelashes on top of the eye as well as bottom for added drama. Underneath the eye was a deconstructed beautiful Magic Blush in two toned pink blended as a highlighter. Finally I used Satin Finish Compact Powder which is 100% natural and gave an even toned finish.

Many people commented on how couture the makeup looked. What elements can be used in everyday life?
LN – You can adapt the look by filling in your eyebrows with a shade darker eyebrow shadow or pencil to make them look groomed and full. Also placing strong liner and eyelashes with a red lip is beautiful together. Keeping the rest of your make up minimal.

Was this look a challenge for your team?
LN – I think my team was great. Some of the girls from AOFM who assisted me had  experience in doing strong red lips and eyebrows, but in general like a test, being under pressure to get it perfect! They really enjoyed in creating the look. It has such strong technique elements and hidden contouring which is naked to the eye and when under pressure you can forget to do a few bits. I also had several make up artists friends who came to help me and for them it was totally different to be working on this show because its not often you get to create a couture look for London Fashion Week!

Backstage at Orschel-Read

Posted by Rebekah Roy on September 24th, 2010

LFWss2011 OrschelRead models Backstage at Orschel Read

Stefán Orschel-Read’s collection ‘The Spy Who Becomes Me’ had 30 models, and each model had one look each. Backstage was quite calm and we seemed to have loads of time to hang around and chat. Sometimes backstage the time just flys by but all the models were on time – a few were even early so it felt like we had time to spare.

At The Art of Being by Elizabeth Emanuel show we had so much room backstage – one room for a hair, one for makeup and another one for all the clothes and accessories – so it was very calm backstage.

Alice Palmer SS2011

I was backstage at Fashion Fringe with Alice Palmer. If you haven’t seen Alice’s new collection you should, she really is the one to watch. Alice’s knitwear is somewhere between Missoni and Issey Miyake. Her collection was inspired by fossils! The pleats and shapes give it a very Japanese feel and Alice has always had a great understanding of colour.

PPQ Makeup Look for Spring Summer 2011!

Posted by Rachel Wood on September 18th, 2010

PPQ SS2011 PPQ Makeup Look for Spring Summer 2011! It’s the beginning of London Fashion week and I started it with a bang by heading up the makeup team for the PPQ at Somerset House. With my amazing team of makeup assistants from AOFM, and product sponsors Benefit Cosmetics and Tweezerman. I was able to create a very London look that was clean and super cool. My team and I created lovely strong brows that were full but groomed using these fabulous and very handy kits that tweezerman put together for us. Huge lashes were the key element of the makeup look, easily created by using a combo of tweezerman’s terrific crease proof lash curlers and layers of my all time favourite Benefit’s Badgal lash in black. Fake bake was also backstage spray tanning up the girls to give them that dessert sun look to coincide with PPQ’s Moroccan theme. The pressure was on as show’s were running behind schedule (45 minutes fashionably late) and we had less than 2 hours to get all the models ready. I was totally proud of my super glam squad for all their hard work under such strict time restraints. I think Im still buzzing from the electric energy of it all!

The Grass is always Greener at Prophetik

Posted by Rebekah Roy on September 18th, 2010

prophetik londonfashionWeek 1 The Grass is always Greener at Prophetik

I styled Prophetik’s show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout this London Fashion Week. Every show you work on is different but this one is truly unique. Prophetik is all about sustainability, but not just in terms of fashion – it’s a way of life and how they treat their team. Jeff Garner and his team arrived from Tennessee and without a moment to spare we were doing fittings and castings and Jeff was also trying to organize all the production. He’s a perfectionist but trusts his team and knows how to delegate. It’s just true team work where everyone know what their doing and really respects and admires one another.

As you can see we had such fun models – this is backstage just before the show!

We actually had real grass on the catwalk that had a felt backing so heels don’t sink in or get stuck in the grass. After the show the grass is taken back to be replanted.

New York Fashion Week

Posted by Rachel Wood on September 16th, 2010

louise roe ok magazine williamtempest New York Fashion Week

It’s my favourite time of year again, no not Christmas- it’s fashion week.

I’ve started out in NY working on the Teen Vogue show in association for ASOS (which is has just launched in the USA). The Teen Vogue show was on NY’s fashion night out which was busier than New Year’s Eve in Times Square! Worked with the wonderful makeup artist Anthea King and sponsored by Mark Cosmetics which is the teen makeup line of AVON cosmetics. Anthea created 2 varied looks for the show. A simple fresh shimmer day look-coral cheeks, nude eyes with a top line of black into the lashes and a coral pink lipstick ( coral fixation) pressed into the lip & the second look was more evening. This look consisted of the same, eyes, cheeks and lips as the day look but had a heavier cat eye kohl rimmed eye-very Sophia Loren.

The next day I was working in the Marchesa show room making up fashion’s “it girl” Olivia Palermo for OK! Magazine’s fashion week issue (the American version out next week). Olivia was a dream to makeup with her perfect cheek bones and amazing sun kissed clear complexion. She was super sweet and very polite and best of all loved
the gentle smokey eye look I created for her. (I added a dot of MAC pink pearl pigment on her eye lids to really make them pop).

Later on in the week, I was working with another of fashion darlings that came into town and one of my favourite clients Louise Roe. I arrived at her NY hotel super early in the morning to make sure she looked her stunning best for each interview and event she needed to attend. Luckily though I had the opportunity to find time in my own hectic schedule to hit a few fashion parties, such as the OK! magazine event, a fabulous dinner for designer William Tempest’s first showing in NY and the Bebe after show party (which Louise was the celebrity star host for).

All in all a lovely mix of work this NY fashion week. Just the right amount this season to not tire me out too much for London- where I have just landed this morning. Now off to prep for PPQ’s show at Somerset house!
