London Fashion Week: Reporting Backstage at Alessia Prekop

The Alessia Prekop S/S 2014 collection provided an array of elegant and feminine outfits in fairly muted tones. The focus was very much on puffy statement sleeves, contrasting waist-hip ratios, strong angles and a framing of black. Ruffles and frills provided a very feminine carefree twist to an elegant and minimalist collection. Backstage, head make-up
artist Kim Brown explained that the skin
featured no contouring or blush, in order to highlight a clean and
clear skin with summery feel. The main focus
was the bright neon eyebrows; each model fashioned a striking bright blue or
purple eyebrow, while liquid eyeliner was used to elongate the shape of
brows and eyes. Lips were tinted purple to bring the makeup look together, while completely contrasting to the colour and texture in the clothes. Similarly, the hair was really simple and strong; there was
absolutely not a hair out of place. The clothing featured a lot of
diagonal cuts, so the hair featured a diagonal parting. Hair was
tied up in a bun and Label-M Extra Strong Moose was used to give the hair a clean and shiny look, while ensuring it stayed put. Once the models
hit the catwalk with their completed looks, the show was
incredible. Alessia Prekop’s collection will be extremely popular amongst fans of the minimalist trend that want to add a little
twist; ruffles, round and diagonal cuts were massively prominent
throughout and provide extra dimension to otherwise classic styles.
