If you read my previous post you probably know that I got invited to London Fashion Week Sunday by The Body Shop. It was an absolutely amazing day and I was so impressed by all the designers and the overall vibe was simply amazing.
I was invited to the Phoebe English show at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout venue and it was such an exciting show, it started with identical twin models (kathryn and megan purves) which created a trickery vibe, this set a strong scene for the rest of the show. The makeup was dewy and pale, hair kept in a simple roll, nothing was over the top and this was ideal. Clothes wise it was a matte monochromatic heaven, with a sudden metallic shine and smoothness created by bugle beading caged sleeves and embellishments. The difference in textures and materials was extremely eye-catching, the strong metal bugle beading that almost represented a cage, paired alongside organic fabric silhouettes. Final touches were beautiful paint splatted shoes and Reid Peppard’s striking gold mouth pieces. Simplicity done well.
Body Shop have sent me a link to a little makeup behind the scenes video, you can watch that here. I always love to see behind the scenes videos and photos, the chaos becomes still enough for us to inspect. You can also see a video of the entire Phoebe English show here and it is definitely worth a watch. Again, a big thank you to The Body Shop & Vauxhall Fashion Scout.
