Backstage with Burberry February ’17

Hot off the runway, here’s my behind the scenes special on the collection, beauty look and the pop up show space…

Monday was all about everything Burberry, as I worked with over 70 models to get them runway-ready for the unveiling of Burberry’s second ready-to-wear collection at Makers House in London. Inspired by sculptor Henry Moore, Christopher Bailey once again pulled of a truly beautiful collection.

“I’ve been inspired by Henry Moore all my adult life and I tried to put something of the way he thought about three-dimensional form and sculpture into the clothes. Texture was also important to him and that led me to the laces and the shearlings.”

Influenced by the work of 20th-century artist and sculptor Henry Moore, the runway make-up look focused on natural beauty, creating a sense of individuality through the use of contour and light. Dewy, fresh skin with soft highlights and subtle sculpting enhanced the natural silhouette of the face. Eyes were opened with a touch of brightness at the inner corners, while lips were pared back.

Beauty Looks
