MBFWA: Fernando Frisoni S/S 2012/13 Hair & Beauty

Day Five: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia - Fernando Frisoni S/S 2012/13 
Collection: Masquerade-inspired.

Fernando Frisoni was the final designer to showcase at fashion week and therefore in true designer style, his collection debuted as an Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week closing party with a masquerade theme. Frisoni was only too happy to explain the concept, "For my new collection I have explored the dark side of the Brazilian jungle. The clothes are sexy, powerful and fierce with sports-luxe edges. The look is quite androgynous and minimalist, with a mixture of busy prints and natural colours." For some reason or another we were unable to request images for the Fernando Frisoni show but luckily we had contacts backstage and bring to you the hair and makeup look from the collection's debut. Jayne Wild, Creative Director for ghd, explained Frisoni's insight in to the collection, "Fernando Frisoni’s Spring Summer ‘12 Collection takes inspiration from the individual style of eight of Fernando’s close girlfriends. A preview of the collection will be showcased by two male models and two female models as well his eight ‘bridesmaids’."

The masquerade-inspired look was fierce, unique and intensely beautiful. Wild told media,"each model will be wearing an individual hair mask that was made using real hair. We’ve taken inspiration from Phillip Tracy’s amazing designs for Isabella Blow and created these beautiful animalistic headpieces to ensure our models stand out from the crowd."

Makeup: by Napoleon Perdis.
The inspiration: High-flying socialites living it up behind the velvet rope, as though they’ve been styled by French Vogue. Memo: Sophisticated yet fabulously undone. To create this look Napoleon shared a few top tips: "This look is all about having confidence in your individual style. I recommend tailoring the eye makeup to your own features rather than copy catting it exactly from the runway. It’s a little rock ‘n’ roll, a lot ‘morning after the night before’, so instead of a clean flick the lines are smudged and sexy. Use 7r Smudging & Sculpting Brush to get the same effect."
