'You know I need this sweet sensation' - Chase and Status
Sensational is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of this September. Not just because it's the birthday month of myself, many of my family members, Zandra Rhodes and my mum (who both share the same day!), but because I had some awesome opportunities.
The first was being offered to work at London Fashion Week for the amazing Andrew Majtenyi. While I used Airbrush make-up on the three radiant models, Belle, Lucie and Samar, saviour Benjamin styled the hair.
The whole team was expecting a quiet presentation, but once the peeps rolled in they were loving Andrew's collection, no doubt. The designs caught the attention of many magazines, newspapers and industry pro's, not surprising seeing as the garments were exquisite. His designs are so unique and the intricacy of the patterns are enticing.
It got so busy, the demand to see the models in different outfits rose dramatically and I ended up becoming wardrobe stylist as well! All in all, it was a great turnout.
The next day I was off shooting for the designer who stomped into the fashion industry and put Britain on the map, yes that's right...the one and only Zandra Rhodes. We were shooting with one of the models from Andrew's presentation, Lucie, and a very good friend of mine, Patrick Anderson - no need to tell you how awesome he is..he's photographed pretty much everyone in the world..even The Jackson Five. Patrick, if you read this I need you to find that picture, I want it, please! Thank you :)
It was a phenomenal shoot at Zandra's super colourful apartment, with some brilliant and bold patterns for her Spring/Summer 2012 collection, that I'm sure, harmonised with the right accessories could easily be turned into an Asian outfit.
Enough of my chit chat, I'll let the pictures do the rest...
