MARIOS SCHWAB – LFW

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

With LFW in full swing it seems only right to review one of my favourite shows so far. Marios Schwab’s S/S 2012 offering was at once empowering, striking and beautiful. His inspiration behind the collection was Chiaroscuro; the particular lighting effect that was used in the Film Noir genre to give a sharp contrast between light and dark. The Film Noir heroine was thus entertained in the show, as the models strutted down the catwalk in an array of structured dresses and carefully crafted silhouettes.

Lattice panelled dresses in black, white and pastels embraced a modern aesthetic. These cutwork dresses were followed by black gauze layered over white, pale red and cornflower blue-playing on shadows and shimmer. To finish, a crystal encrusted bodice, sparkling from under a voluminous translucent plastic gown and then under sheer black chiffon wowed the audience. The Swarovski crystals catching the light under the darkened fabrics particularly alluded to the Chiaroscuro effect.

A collection that was true to the designer’s aesthetic- dresses engineered to complement and enhance the female form, many pieces were instantly wearable. Personal favourites included the peach lattice work dress with high neckline, the netting and bejewelled maxi dress and of course the sheer chiffon gown over the enchanting crystallised bodice.

Our models’ favourite relaxing activities

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Being a model unlike to what most people think is a tough job. It’s not just about walking up and down the catwalk for a few minutes but a lot more than is not quite obvious. Castings can be all around London and within one day a model may have to spend hours in public transport trying to attend as many castings as possible. And when a job has been booked a few fittings will take place that again can be anywhere, from central London to Brighton.

During fashion shows the intensity is even higher as apart from the stress there is a lot of pressure as everything has to be delivered perfectly. Some designers are so demanding  and have so high expectations which causes extra pressure. Also, fashion shows can take up to ten hours as there is a lot of preparation, time spent for the make-up, the styling, trying again and again the different garments and so much more.

What our models find extremely relaxing after a hard day at work is a enjoying a spa day. A day of indulgence and pampering is so revitalising that makes our models being full of energy again for next week. With so many various spa treatments available, from facial therapies to a health massage there is no wonder why a spa days are so popular among our models.
