Roland Mouret Pre Fall 15 Collection

Our working day began this morning while it was still dark! Luckily we had plenty of lights set up backstage at Roland Mouret’s Pre Fall 15 show so we could start making up our models at 7am. With a great M.A.C team on board and reliable products at our fingertips, all models had their ‘individually defined beauty with a punk edge and Mayfair polish’ applied in time for the 8.30am rehearsal! Nails were painted deep navy by Ama Quashie using Morgan Taylor. Hair was teased and tousled by Lyndell Mansfield and her team who created a fun atmosphere with their music and energy.

In fact, Lyndell’s make-up provided some of the inspiration for the show, along with a pinch of Gwyneth Paltrow in the Royal Tenenbaums and Sissy Spacek in Badlands. Also Sophia Neophitou’s eyeliner, who art directed the looks and styled the show. Each model had their own singular statements to suit, ranging from an intense black liner around the eyes with layers of cloggy mascara; heavy, spidery lashes with black kohl in the waterline or a matte red lip with blurred edges. Skin was kept fresh and with minimal amount of concealor applied. Models looked boyish rather than pretty – tough but chic. By 9.30am it was time to get organised for the model line up. M.A.C artist Dominic came prepared with his clip on lights to check for any imperfections…

Showtime was just after 10am and by 11am we’d left the building and the Instagrams were in full swing, capturing the mornings events! I can’t imagine a better way to end the year – I’ve worked with Roland since the 90s so it’s wonderful to watch his evolution. I’d like to give thanks to M.A.C for their support; the brilliant Jude Paternoster for her fine organisation and humour; Inca Events for their elegant production; Sorcha Adamson at CLM for being there and my two fabulous, loyal assistants, Hannah Paul and Lucy Pearson.
