Crystal Couture

Crystal Couture

Mid July I collaborated with stylist Brian Conway on a shoot for Institute magazine. We wanted  to do something really high fashion and out there so we decided to go for couture styling and edgy black wigs to complete the look. We used two models, Cat @ 1st Option and Bronwyn @ Distinct.

Roy, our wonderful MUA decided to go for two contrasting looks for the girls, Heavy eyebrows and dark lips for Cat and no eyebrow and darker eyes for Bronwyn. The no eyebrow look worked particularly well with Bronwyn’s incredibly intense blue eyes – as you can see below. Glen, our hairstylist went for a slick short cut to add a bit of drama to the look. Got to say the girls really looked incredible!

Brian picked up some amazing couture gowns, most of which were from amazing Ireland based designers like Umit Kutluk, Lya Solis, Eamonn McGill or Synan O’ Mahony. We also had more international brands like an amazing Pink Vintage Oscar De la Renta Gown. Hard to not fall in love with them!

The editorial was published online on the Institute magazine, full article to find here:

Here are all the final shots, let me know your thoughts about them!
