Jasper Garvida LFW show S/S12
Hello Wonderful people!!
So I thought I'd do a little bit of an update of what I've been up to..Hope your all recovering after London Fashion week!! Sadly I had a cold during most of it so had to bow out of the first couple of days to attend my sick bed!!
But lets get onto the good bits. This season I was asked by the master of wonderfulness Jasper Garvida to style his S/S12 catwalk show. This was a new era for Jasper as he took this collection to ANOTHER LEVEL!! It was based on 60's Vogue editor Diana Vreland and also Frantisek Kupka’s painting ‘Autour d’un Point'.
With the styling I wanted to keep it very simple yet have an edge. I imagined the woman that would wear Jasper's pieces would be a total glamazon who was the CEO of a company yet had kids and a husband who she still looked after. She would be effortlessly chic yet fierce at the same time. For shoes I used clear perspex heels to take the outfits a bit more edgier then we used a metallic gold peep toe and also a black peep toe shoe to bring that summer feel to the collection. The jewelry we used were gold and silver cuffs, silver oblong rings,jet black stone rings and earrings we had silver with black and gold with black mesh long drop earrings. The reason why I only used one long drop was the fact it complimented the outfits a lot more and also made them a little more young and fresh yet still sophisticated. Jasper had made the most wonderful handbags & silver sequin belts that styled within outfits as well. I also found the most amazing 1950's style sunglasses which I thought looked amazing on the models and just gave the collection that nod to the past yet still looking very present.
The make up was done by my very good friend Michelle Webb in association with AOFM the hair was also done by my cupcake partner in crime Herman Ho. With hair and make up we wanted to make the girls into the Jasper Garvida girls. Fresh faced natural day (almost dewy) look and the hair was a structured beehive/pony tail.
I have to say a big thank you to my first assistants Jo B and Alex O & all the dressers that helped backstage. I'm very thankful to my assistants for helping me backstage. Also I'd like to say a big thank you to Yukun & Jasper for giving me the opportunity to style the show it was such an amazing experience. Also thanks to Lucas for coming and doing the backstage video for the show and last but not least Justin!!
