FASHION WEEK SHOW UPDATE
Josh, Andreas and Agi continued to set the colour tone for SS14 by creating more amazing looks for Paris fashion week. The team worked behind the scenes at Celine to create sheer colour that was a sombre tone down of primary colours. Agi and Andreas also worked alongside the make-up team to bleach the models’ eyebrows to create a beautiful blank canvas for the vibrant, art-inspired collection.
The team were thrilled to create more colour for the final show of Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton. Colouring through the night and up until showtime they created primary, bold and intense reds, blondes and brunettes to stand out in the melancholic sea of black.
