Backstage at London Fashion Week
Tue 18 Sep 2012
Lipsy had an all access backstage pass to the shows to get in on all the stylish action behind the scenes. We watched the hair and makeup team create beautiful looks to complete the SS13 catwalk collections for London Fashion Week.
Two brands that wowed the crowds were Daks and Corrie Nielson. At Corrie Nielsen a Wuthering Heights scene was being re-created by the Toni&Guy Session Team. As head hair stylist, Indira Schauwecker commented, "Hair is wild and free, like Heathcliff's Cathy." Key to Indira's Cathy look were the wispy rolls at the neck of the hair which he created using label.m professional haircare.
Make-up was designed by Yin Lee of AOFMPro to create his half a rose faces which represented a ruddy and natural tan. The overall look was based on ethereal beauty and bird like elegance.
For DAKS models were transformed into chic, rich looking ladies. Hair was kept simple and sleek by means of a low and straight parted ponytail for a modern groomed expensive look. "Simplicity is so key for a spring, fresh look," commented Senior Stylist, Luke Hersheson.
The makeup mirrored the hair and was also kept clean and simple, with just a touch of liner "to add some femininity to an otherwise androgynous look," explained, Head Make-Up Artist, Hiromi Ueda.
