Back on November 6th another fashion show hit London. The London Pacific Fashion Show. CEO and Fijian designer Ana Luvy launched her first pre London Fashion Week show in a Tiki-themed venue in Fulham showcasing some of the biggest designers from the South Pacific.
Ana had tremendous support and sourced 25 models to help showcase the South Pacific designer's collections. Each collection was very original to its own and each model was given a designer to walk for.
I was lucky to be asked by Ana to be the Make-up designer for the show and brought on board my wonderful 2nd lead MUA Fary Bolorchi as well as 12 make-up students from Kingston College where I teach make-up part time to the HNC Make-up students.
As the designers collections were very different from one another and each model was given a designer to walk for I decided to mix things up a little with the make-up.
Myself and my team created steampunk make-up for the designer Star Boy to match the collection. Star Boy was the first and biggest collection to be showcased, so their models walked on the floor wearing red and black bold eye make-up highlighted with a gold bottom lash line to make those eyes pop. Teamed with Burgundy shades of red lips and fresh dewy rosy skin tones. The males wore the traditional steam punk coins to one side of their face.
I wanted the first impact on the catwalk to be different, bold and noticeable followed by fresh faced healthy looking skin.
So the rest of the models were made up with fresh dewy highlighted skin, defined brows and contoured skin. We added a slight wash of shimmer across the lids and neutral shimmer lips to match the fresh dewy highlighted skin look.
The overall night was another great experience in my career as well as giving Kingston College students a great work experience placement.
