Friday 13 September opening at London Fashion Week for Mark Fast.
It’s my second time working at LFW backstage, I am part of the TIGI Session Team and I can’t express enough how much I love it!
– Mark Fast often gets his theme from London life and this show was no exception. The energy from the East End portrayed in his show Eighties club wear was represented and spanned nylon shell suits, bandage mini skirts and fishnet singlets were all incorporated.
However, the East End wasn’t the only theme in this show, the clothes were about more than just a night out. In fact, the current news coverage surrounding the devastation of the Amazon’s rainforest were also a drive with the designer intending the showcase to be “a tribute to the beauty, colour and creations that were lost.”
This then led us to create hair that represented both these themes with passion and fulfilment. We created an 80s style ponytail with braids and worked with the models natural texture. The texture look gave it the amazon feel but with style. The products that were used were very simple but had a great effect on the models hair, we used Tigi bed head Superstar, Catwalk haute iron spray and Copyright maximum hold hairspray.
The energy back stage of having the opening show was immense. I was so excited (and also very sweaty) As the day progressed I became less stressed and began to enjoy it so much. So much was happening it was so busy suddenly we were ready to begin the show and everything was calm we were ready to go!
Helping complete the designers new look and to make their dreams come true and working alongside an amazing team of talented people together creating for the runway.”
