YOUR HIT LIST – A STYLIST’S GUIDE TO ‘L.A. FASHION WEEK’

Can I Get Some Runway Please?!


(photos from past L.A. “Fashion Weeks” – click on images to enlarge)
________________________________________________________________

With the LA Fashion Week approaching, here’s a shortcut to what not to miss.

LA Fashion week officially kicks off this Friday March 11th with a “multi-agenda” atmosphere once again.  There will be independent collections and group shows spread over a week and a half of A/W 2011 previews all over the city. 

CONCEPT launches the “official” week on Friday March 11th with Henry Duarte and Roark Collective.  Duarte’s label was made most famous by dressing rock and roll icons like Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz and Steven Tyler, we can’t wait to see how the collection has evolved.  If you have never heard of Roark, make it a priority now.

I was lucky enough to have already worked with the label placing pre-sampled pieces sourced from leather in Paris on some of our clients.  Designer Andrew Steiger has masterminded an amazing collection!

Project Ethos, which is one of the few open to events to the public kicks of Saturday March 12th combining a live performance by indie band Robotanists, a new art instillation featuring work by 7 artists and runway presentations all night at the Avalon Hollywood.

On Sunday March 13th don’t miss the CONCEPT presentation of SkinGraft one of the most famous LA fashion labels that puts us on the map as being able to do “couture” not just lifestyle branding.

Skip to Wednesday March 16th for a few not to be missed shows, located at Vibiana for Gypsy 05 and Future Heretics, two highly successful clothing brands that are definite trendsetters.

Thursday March 17th, a special tribute to Alexander McQueen marking a year after his untimely death that shocked the global fashion community.

On Friday March 18th highlighting front runner Sue Wong will privately unveil her collection at an estate in Hollywood.  The event theme “Divine Decadence.”

And in finale the Sunset Gower Studios shows both Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th, brought to you by Gallery LA during their “L.A. Fashion Weekend“  This event hosts one of the best runway set-ups in town and stands as an epicenter during L.A.’s Fashion Week presenting shows from brands like Adiktion and Civil Society.

Most shows and events are trade only, but still open for rsvp.  Others are ticket based events, but worth the investment!

See you in the front row!

TRAFFIK: Where are you from originally and where are you based now?

VC: Born in NY raised in Cali, live and work in LA

 

TRAFFIK: How did you get involved in doing makeup and why?

VC: Officially I’m sure it had something to do with Color Energy by Cristinia Bornstein, but I was already doing covers for the Santa Barbara Independent in 2001 for the fashion editions as well as styling the wardrobe as a fashion editor’s assistant.

After art school and during the launch of my own clothing line I returned to doing make-up/product development in 2004 for Tony & Tina Cosmetics (T&T), a company ironically based from NY.

I quickly became the Trend Consultant for Nordstrom’s regionally throughout the Southern California doors for T&T.  Stila Cosmetics  brought me out to LA in 2006 and I worked for them while attending the Art Institute majoring in Graphic Design.

It was a blast! Travel and lots of free product every season combined with training for the new “in look”

 

TRAffIK: What are some of the various projects/shoots you have done make-up for?

VC: Recently…

TRAffIK: What type of scenarios/situations (tv, commercial, fashionshow/runway, photo shoots, etc.) do you most like doing make-up for?

VC: Private Clients, Fashion Shows, Product Development

 

TRAffIK: What do you enjoy about doing make-up?

VC: It’s relaxing! And of course making people beautiful, FX or character make-up never caught on with me, it’s always been about fashion and beauty or demonstrating technique.

 

TRAffIK. Do you remember the first make-up item that you purchased or used? What was it?

VC: I really bought into skin care first, and then when MAC  first came out, I was ALL OVER that!!!

 

TRAffIK: At what age did you start wearing make-up? What made you start?

VC: Well, I was kinda a tomboyish sorta girl and resisted until about junior high, but then fell in love with the whole thing.

 

TRAffIK: Are you able to tell what colors would work best on someone just by looking at them? How?

VC: There are really great ways to predict what will work on someone. I start with looking at eye color and skin tone.

 

TRAffIK: Is there a make-up look that you feel works for everyone?

VC: Anything you can put together in three steps is the perfect everyday look. Less is more, more or less.

 

TRAffIK: What is the biggest or most common mistake that you feel people make when it comes to make-up?

VC: Looking at magazines and trying to re-create a photo-shopped image

 

TRAffIK: What would your advice be for someone who has never worn make-up but wants to start?

VC: The best advice is to sit down with the pros near you. Either in a flagship store or a department store counter. Ask the manager who they recommend and sit down for an hour, it’s free.

 

TRAffIK: What do you feel makes a great make-up artist?

VC: Perseverance, confidence, and talent.

 

TRAffIK: What are some of the most common questions you get from women in regards to makeup?

VC: How do I do the smokey eye?

 

TRAffIK: Are there any people in your field that you look up to?

VC: Janice Dickinson’s make-up artist team, she always looks amazing!

 

TRAffIK: Are there any celebrities whose makeup you think always looks great?

VC: Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Beyonce

 

TRAffIK: Is there any celebrity (or multiple celebrities) whose makeup you would love to do? Why?

VC: Meghan Fox. Basically, people that can constantly re-invent themselves.

 

TRAffIK: How would you describe your personal make-up approach?

VC: Fresh appeal, bringing out individual beauty through features.

 

TRAffIK: What is your going out make-up process (either daily morning getting ready or nighttime)?

VC: I’m a total chameleon with my make-up and will almost never repeat the same look twice.

 

TRAffIK: Is there any product or beauty regimen that you swear by?

VC:

1. exfoliate

2. use lip conditioner daily

3.throw away old product!!! Anything more than 2 years old.

4. shape the brows

5. illuminate

 

TRAffIK: What is your favorite feature (eyes/lips/face) to do make-up for?

VC: Creating high cheekbones and full luscious lips

TRAffIK: How do you feel about permanent make-up?

VC: Brows look pretty good if done right. Not a fan of permanent eye or lip liner.

 

TRAffIK: How do you feel about plastic surgery?

VC: I would recommend upper eye lid surgery for more crease. There are so many things you can do these days, just make sure it fits your profile.

 

TRAffIK: For someone who is getting their make-up done by you, what kind of experience can they expect?

VC: More relaxing than intimidating with great results, I let the client be a part of the experience.

 

TRAffIK: If you weren’t a make-up artist what would you be?

VC: A unicorn

 

TRAffIK: What do you do to unwind?

VC: Bubble bath or hit the gym, or both

 

TRAffIK: What are some of your favorite places to shop for make-up?

VC: Sephora, Ulta
