I had my heart broken earlier this week, when offered a job with the London Fashion Council working for the PR and Advertising Team over Londons FW; but due to clashing work schedules.. I had to turn it down! Events and advertising is another area of business I love and it would of been good to see all the Fashion Weeks process from another vantage point. Oh well!
In summary I think what has been seen so far is my kind of woman- powerful. With a definate 'Dont mess with me' feel, I love the empowerment the next few seasons will bring to a womans look and confidence!
So what have we seen from the makeup side of things- RED RED RED.
The red lip is going nowhere! After being around for a few seasons already some would think its past its used by date, but with such new and exciting twists on the look and with such a diversity of colours to wear, designers feel that it still has alot to give to fashion.
And not just the red lip; red, coppers and rich browns are also been seen on eye looks too. Now.. with a bit of time, let me show you how best to wear them. Can be tricky! But if done well.... wow!
Thakoon A/W 11-12
Hair styling wise.. all us gals will be happy to hear its all about the pony tail! An easy look, that doesnt take hours to do. Seen as a very clean, smooth look at Marc Jabobs to a sexy dishevelled pony tail at others. And another trend thats music to my ears! A full fringe. Ive been rocking mine on and off now for a year or so and I love it. Happy to see it on the runways and red carpets again!
For fashion A/W 11-12 brings
- A new feel for richness, detail and sumptuous fabrics flourished throughout the NYC collections taking many shapes and forms - see Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and Thakoon
