Rosemount Australian Fashion Week: Day Two (Carl Kapp)

Carl Kapp S/S 2011 Collection

Tuesday 3rd of May 2011 was a memorable day for Carl Kapp: it was the brand's first show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. Carl Kapp showcased his brilliant Spring/Summer collection, Falling Water and it was beautiful, feminine and certainly worth a mention. Considering I know of Carl Kapp, I was surprised to fiind out this is his first RAFW collection but the brand has so much potential - the designer has so much skill and knowledge. The key colours for the season are vibrant, summery shades such as coral, tangerine, teal and royal purple. I was lucky enough to visit backstage while the hair and makeup was being carried out and it was mayhem! 28 models as well as oodles of hair stylists and makeup artists in a small tent trying to make deadlines for the show. It was well worth the wait though, because Mr Perdis appeared towards the end to ensure the look was right and he managed to spare a few minutes for me.

The Hair: While garments were not accessorised to ensure they were the main focus, the hair was slicked back and fringes were given a vintage/old-school feel by curling them and slicking them flat against the model's scalp. Models with long hair had their locks twisted, slicked in to tight buns and given lots of shine for health and vibrancy.
The Makeup: Napoleon Perdis' creative team created gorgeous porcelain skin with a flawless finish. A touch of clear gloss slicked over the lips gave a hint of shine. A thin layer of black liner lines the eyes and extended out to create a soft cats eye effect with a feathered flick. A touch of gold was brushed over the mobile lid to give the look a unique feel. Inspiration: Polished intelligence with an element of surprise. Understated, yet unpredictable. Subtly Egyptian and a tad exotic. Thanks to Napoleon Perdis for providing a face chart and images of the look.
