I made this little video capturing what it was like backstage at the GYUNEL AW13 show. Watch the hair, make-up, clothes and accessories being put together to create a fairy tale show for Gyunel’s debut catwalk show at The Savoy during London Fashion Week AW13. Please watch in 720p or 1080p mode to get the best video picture. The AOFM Pro team produced an outstanding work for make-up.
A few days ago I posted all my photos on the blog, and that can be seen by clicking here.

This show took place at a stunning Georgian house dating back to the 18th century. The grand residence of Lord Edward Davenport. I went there knowing very little about the label, and was unaware that I was in for a very pleasant surprise. The collection is influenced by the Empress. It was a full capacity show at 33 Portland Place, with a number of people needing to be turned away.
This was the label’s fourth collection, entitled “Immortal”. I love a good story and this one was based on a young girl who was gifted to the Chinese Emperor. She toured across the Asian continent, collecting bits of treasures until she became deluded, believing she was the grand ruler of an every land she had set foot upon. Eventually the girl was known as “The Beauty of Xiaohe”. I did not expect to be quite so awestruck when I saw the exotic & elaborate embroidery across the garments. They really are quite magnificent. The collection includes boxy jackets juxtaposed by floaty backless gowns with fabrics involving silks and ostentatiously rich prints.

Ever wondered what happens backstage after the models take their final walk-through and the designer shows his/her face to the crowd? Watch everyone cheer and applaud together after Haizhen’s very successful London Fashion Week show. It was a job well done. Congratulations to Haizhen!
