If you’ve seen my latest weekly vlog post, you’ll have spotted that I went along to one of the London Fashion Week shows – Palmer // Harding with Glo & Ray. I recently discovered Glo & Ray at the Blogosphere Valentine’s Party and I’m a fan of their liquid liner. I even wore it on the day and it lasted from 7am until 2am! I may have popped along to some birthday celebrations…I don’t normally stay up extra late just to test out makeup. Either way, pretty damn impressive, especially when you throw in that I was rushing around like a loon at various points throughout the day. Back to the show!
The lead makeup artist was Attracta Courtney and she kept the look quite simple. Nude face with a black dash above the eye and a black smaller dash along the lower lash line. Nude lips too. I actually really liked it – I have done similar in the past when I’ve helped out on shows. It’s simple and effective, keeping the focus on the clothes. I was lucky enough to get to spend time backstage and as you can see, it’s all a bit full on! I tried to keep out of the way as much as possible, but I also wanted to get some pictures. Hopefully I managed both. Glo & Ray were one of the brands used on the day, I’m not surprised, did I mention that I’m in love with their liquid liner?
The new line from Palmer //Harding for AW17 is simple and stunning. Lots of flowing lines with an edge. For me, some of the pieces had a post-apocalyptic feel, this vibe was added to with the music used for the show, very industrial. That hard edge, it just helped to emphasise the exaggerated lines. Although there were some wonderfully soft pieces too. I’m in love with the black cape coat and the cream coat. Both are thoroughly my style.
Attempting to take pictures while also recording footage and take Instagram stories & photos (I’d recommend checking out my insta)…well let’s just say I needed more hands! Or another camera that I can just set up to record. Next time.
After the runway show, there was a presentation, which was great, more footage! Although I did wish that they rotated the models a wee bit quicker as I had to dash off to the 60th Birthday celebrations and was unable to see all the clothes again. At least you get an idea of what went on. You can see how the makeup really complimented the feel fo the clothes and they worked really nicely together.
Did you make it to London Fashion Week this year? I definitely need to make it to the next one, more shows to see I think and I may have more cameras to allow better switching in future! Well a girl can hope.
