Very recently I had the pleasure of working on a fashion film for the Irish Designer, David O Malley for the launch of his ‘Entropy’ collection.
I was familiar with his designs already. I’d seen the singer Young Wonder, wear some his designs at Electric Picnic in 2013 and more recently, RTE weather reporter, Jean Byrne wore one of his dresses at the VIP Style Awards. So I jumped at the chance to be part of the fashion film.
He studied at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin and was named ‘one of the ones to watch’ by Vogue Fashion Festival!
Taking inspiration from the style of the designs and a visit to the Design Centre in Dublin, where you will find his collection, I started to put together ideas for the make-up.
For shoots like this, there are always conversations beforehand about the concept or any themes for the overall style of the shoot. My loose plan (I’m a bit of a planner) was graphic lines and monochrome type look. On the day, I used black and white liner, definite lines being the focus and I enhanced each of the models bone structure with contour and highlighting. On Georgia, the thick winged out black liner all over the lid really suited the geometric style of the clothes. I think the white liner on all three of the models looks cool. I love getting a chance to do high fashion make-up.
Here’s the film, I hope you like it! Well done to everyone involved.
