Don’t you just love the feeling of a successful evening!
. . .
What a show! If you were lucky enough to have a seat in the crowd I’m sure you were blown away by the creativity and designs on the catwalks. Enthusiastic fashionista’s huddled into our Belgravia venue dressed to the nines eagerly awaiting the prestigious event famed for positive body image.
I was lucky enough to be back stage from early in the day where I watched the final looks come to life. From the hair and makeup to the finishing touches here is my low down of the day!
When I arrived hair, make up and fitting were in full swing!
. . .
We had Kiss and Makeup creating the colourful looks for the day. The tribal theme was really implemented into the looks and the team painted colourful thick stripes under the models eyes and across the bridge of the nose, creating a bold and fierce statement! This was topped off with dot work above the eyebrows and a subtle metallic lip. The eyelashes were big bold and beautiful, VEL who create the remarkable feathery designs made sure they were a statement to each models face and added a feminine yet daring edge.
. . .
Daniel Jordan and his Unite Hair team, Heather Nelson, David Rae and his team led the day hair wise. The girl’s hair was pre bleached a few weeks before creating a soft silvery beach look. On the day the styles varied, with most having beachy waves and braids. Lots of volume and bed head style messiness!
. . .
The sensational nail designs were by Kay Cooper and Kirsty Lenny. We had metallic tattoos flawlessly applied on wrists and hands by HennaBK.
. . .
We also had Star Dust providing glitter for lips and body which gave the models a shimmery glow on the catwalk!
The show opened with a bang! We had DJ Damon Hess resident DJ from Gaydio and MTV with Greg Mason supporting him and providing the best Ibiza sounds, this was no ordinary catwalk! The models had so much energy and flair. Strutting down the runway with attitude they incorporated a lot of fun into their poses. Smiles all round and dancing their way down there was so much energy in the room. They oozed confidence as they showed off the beautiful looks. You can hear Damon’s set from the show by clicking here.
Looks wise we had a beautiful collection from Beth Richardson, her plus sized fashion is gorgeous and each piece is such a statement, especially her corset styles which gave the models the enviable hour glass figure! www.bethrichardsonfashion.com
Pretty Mi and Fashion sistas killed the catwalk with their animal prints, feathers and unusual materials. Pure Ibiza style! www.prettymi.co.uk
We had FAC Fashion Designs which is another plus sized brand! The creative director behind this is also the choreographer for the show! Multi-talented Francis!
Black Velvet – This glamorous brand is absolutely stunning, bringing you gorgeous Kaftans, stylish swimwear, and sexy lingerie. www.blkvelvet.com
One of our huge sponsors REVO kitted the models out with funky sunglasses for the entire show. They are such a lovely team and they was kind enough to give me my own stunning pair which I absolutely love. You can see the full range here.
We were lucky to have the sweet Lydia Lucy give a stunning performance after the show and she and along with a few others signed the artwork we had on display.
The Ibiza Fashion Festival Team and I were all interviewed too, giving a short background about ourselves and what we thought of the show and of course Ibiza. Video is coming soon!
Looking around the room it was so great to have such a mixture of people in one place. We had special guest such as Farah Sattaur and the guys behind The Billionaire Concierge, Sam Giffen Big brother finalist and Johny pach TV presenter, so it was a great evening combining networking, fun and fashion.
Watching the Ibiza Fashion Festival grow and develop before my eyes since joining the team has been a whirlwind of excitement. It’s crazy to think this is was only the second show. I can’t wait to see what the future brings to us.
