This week we were lucky enough to be invited by Silverburn shopping centre to be judges of their student fashion competition alongside the lovely Claire from Bee Waits For No One. Six talented students from the Fashion Business and Fashion Branding courses from Glasgow Caledonian University were asked by Topshop to put together three full outfits to fit in with 3 categories - a day look, an evening look and the perfect look for a big night out! There was an impressive £200 Silverburn gift-card for the winner and a £50 one for the runner up, so the pressure was on!
It’s the end of our London Fashion Week coverage but we’ve saved a great one for last, Tata Naka. This playful collection by the twin sister duo features pastel garments with a 1950s housewife influence. I especially loved the pool party theme. The make up is kept simple with a focus on the bright lipstick with blondes wearing bright pink and brunettes with a darker shade. I especially love the hair which was created by Bill Watson and the TONI&GUY Session team, didn’t they do an amazing job! The hair inspiration was taken from a 1950s American power-hair look, similar to the hairstyles you’d see on the show Mad Men. The models were given an individual look based on their hair colour, much like the make up mentioned previously.
As we approach the midway point of fashions biggest week there’s no end to the jaw dropping designs and styling hitting the runways of London, and here at Beauty Aesthetic we are still loving reporting back to you guys everyday with some of our favourites!
The SS13 Collection by Phoebe English features black and white garments with a mix of oversized silhouettes and clever geometric shapes. The collection is very dark and intense which is a big contrast from the majority of Spring/Summer designs I’ve seen so far.
Manuela’s Caribbean upbringing was prominent in her collection using palm weaving techniques to add texture and drama to the softest silk skirts. Her mainly white collection was inspired from organic shapes and architectural lines, resulting in a sophisticated feminine collection, with flashes of texture and colour.
