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.

Brighton Frocks

Monday, June 6th, 2011

On a warm Thursday night in Brighton town, in the gothic grandeur of St Martins church BFW 2011 bought us their Brighton Frocks theatrical catwalk spectacular.

The show featured twelve designers and the audience was treated to more than just the standard catwalk, each of the collection put on a performance for the audience with saucy seaside antics, ballet dancers and superheros all mixed up with the designs. Each of the collections was brilliantly unique and kept the audience thoroughly transfixed.

BM Models Bernadette, Bethany and Ngozi walked that night, and looked fantastic on the catwalk for Red Mutha, Former Glory and Afton Ayache.

BFW VIP Launch Party

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

On a Tuesday evening in May in a crowded suite in the Brighton Hilton Metropole, full of the fashionable and stylish of the city, Brighton Fashion Week 2011 launched itself with a bang!

With so much to grab your attention you just didn’t know what to look at, from the models circulating the room, a live photoshoot with Renaissance and Joanne Fleming Designs, to a live set from the talented Marmaduke Dando, not to mention all the fabulously dressed guests your eyes were spoilt for choice.

The night was a triumph, and we now can’t wait for the rest of the week!

As promised, here’s the gallery of the gorgeous model hopefulls from last week’s Scout Party at Madame Geisha. We’re holding the parties every week, searching for Brighton’s Next Top Model.

See you there tonight?

We're on the search…

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Well here at BM Models HQ it took us at least a day to get over our hangovers and make sense of the cracking night that was the very FIRST BM Models Scout Party! – Our weekly search for fresh new faces to join our Brighton modelling agency, which has already landed the nickname ‘Brighton’s next top model’.

Now if there was one obvious place to host the night, it would be none other than top Brighton venue and all round experts on all things slick and sexy: Madame Geisha. As per usual the Geisha’s crew lived up to their reputation and provided not just a stylish venue for us to party in but also fantastic cocktails, drink promos and hot DJs with heaps of bangin’ electro (BTW guys, try their Sunday roast, don’t ask questions, just do it.)

Back to the point, we had an amazing turn out of potential models and general party animals, our fab one man-hair and make up machine Adrian got to work in transforming the hopeful into the potential catwalk Kings and Queens tomorrow while top photographer Tony started snapping the models. Check out some of the gorgeous photographs at the end of this post.

Join us every Wednesday from 10 till 3 at Madame Geisha (East Street, Brighton) for the second round of the search for Brighton’s next top model. See you there…

And now for the photo’s, first – a few of the BM team letting their hair down:
