The fashion show is organised by designer Maika Crompton, owner of Freya Von Bulow Paper Couture
The task set to designers was to create wearable recycled art at a budget of £30
The Sussex Make-up academy discussed the different looks that designers wanted for their designs and created a call sheet for our students to work from.
We was to supply the hair and make-up for:
St Michael’s Hospice (2 male and 4 female models) which was curated by stylist Sarah Broom (who worked for Dazed and Arena) with clothes completely sourced in one of our partner charity’s shop, St. Michael’s Hospice, Queens Rd, together with London based hairstylist Tracey Cahoon.
Afroretro (1 male and 5 female models) headed by British-Ugandan sisters Anna Nabirye & Lilly Babirye. They fuse both their homelands into their fashion, accessories and jewellery. Many of their collection is upcycled – foraging for unloved and forgotten garments and fabrics they breathe new life into them with just a tad of Uganglish flavour.
Presenter Rachel Spinetti who took the audience on a fashion catwalk journey like no other with designers showcasing outrageous creations and collections with a pre-loved, re-cycled and customised twist.
Singer Maggie K de Monde of Scarlet Fantastic who opened the show, performing “Nature’s Way” from her current album “Reverie” plus “Heartbreak House”, a collaboration with ‘Hifi’ Sean Discon of Soup Dragons. Heartbreak House is on his latest album feat. Crystal Waters, Yoko Ono and Dave Ball.
As well as providing hair and make-up for the designers who entered the competition.
