Every season our graduate team join Paul Costelloe backstage at London Fashion Week, always a show on a grand scale, the shows are normally situated in historical British venues that ooze glamour, today was no exception! Our grads arrived to their 6:30am call time to The Waldorf Hilton to get ready to face the first of a full day of shows seeing them travel all over Central London.
Paul Costelloe is an iconic British fashion brand, with its roots firmly set in Dublin, they operate primarily out of their headquarters in the fashion district of Central London. For 35 years Costelloe has been making women feel beautiful, his classic elegance is recognisable globally as a mark of quality.
Costelloe always shows a playful side in his makeup decisions for his shows, reflecting the collections inspirations whilst also being refined and beautiful. Today the collection being shown at the runway was very 60’s inspired, therefore the look for the day was inspired by a classic British 60’s icon: Twiggy. Beautiful skin & a nude lip were to be the backdrop for the eye look that was defined by its lash inserts on the lower lash line was what the grads were going to be creating today. This high-end show had a lot of models, therefore the grads had to work very efficiently to ensure that all models were ready for the 9:30am show time, but as always were one step ahead and had time to spare to make last minute adjustments.
A massive turnout for the show saw the grads makeup featured heavily in the fashion press including British Vogue.
