Illamasqua provided the make-up for the fashion show part of this Burlesque meets Music meets Fashion meets Technology event on Saturday the 5th September at SEOne club in London Bridge. The underground club [one of the largest in London] was decked out to provide an invigorating, sensual experience - there was even a candyfloss stand, but I was more interested in the Absolut bar that offered a myriad of delicious cocktails.
The make-up was provided by Adam, Halimah and Lucy who instructed some London College of Fashion artists on the key looks for the show.
Featuring up-and-coming designers such as Matthew Harding, Blandine Bardeau and Victoria Jensen, the show was an absolute triumph. The models stalked their way through the crowd and onto a rotating tea cup [yes, you did read that right!] to the sounds of Blur "Song 2" and other club hits spun by DJ Goldie Rocks. Traditional aspects of fashion shows were blown away and the diverse fashion on offer was very exciting.
After the fashion show, there were several burlesque performances and a random assortment of entertainment in the fashion room.
Roisin Murphy, Electro extradonaire, provided an amazing DJ Set and even though she is heavily pregnant, belted out a few hits and even some exclusive tracks from her new album.
The crowd went predictably wild and with acts such as The Coolness [who will be remembered for their on-stage antics as much as their actual performance...!], David E Sugar and Dega Breaks providing an eclectic mix of indie and electro, it was a night that the mix of indie kids, fashionistas and cool clubbers will not forget.
