BACKSTAGE AT ASHISH AW14

Posted on February 18, 2014

Picture the scene. Light-up flatforms, Chloe Norgaard’s rainbow hair, origami organza, sparkling tiaras and a whole lot of sequins… This is the coolest prom in history – otherwise known as Ashish’s AW14 show at London Fashion Week!

Being backstage at Ashish’s prom spectacular was like being at the most fabulous Fashion Week party – us Topshop girls chatted with the achingly cool (and super stylish) beauty team, mingling with models like Betty Adewole (that’s the next Naomi Campbell to you) and were surrounded by more sparkle than you could possibly dream of! Edgy stylist Anna Trevelyan was also buzzing around, sporting new egg-yolk yellow hair and ensuring each look was styled to prom party perfection.

The hair for the show was dreamed up by hair maverick and friend of the designer, Ali Pirzadeh, who mixed polished waves with fly-away crimping to make Ashish’s girls  look “slept in after a crazy night at prom!” He polished off the look with some blinging tiaras, because to him, “every one of Ashish’s girls is a prom queen.” Bless.

Nails came in the form of the ‘Boom’ Manicure – a name that the nail girls told us was destined for Ashish – considering it’s one his favourite words! The Boom is created in three simple steps. First, a lick of Barbie pink polish, followed by another coat of Tutti Frutti glitter and finished off with a single diamante to compliment Ashish’s signature sequins.

The make-up was also fit for your Barbie doll, with bright fuchsia used to stain both lips and cheeks. Eyes were lined in gold before adding violet shadow blended into (even more!) pink at the corners, followed by another layer of glitter for good measure. Make-up artist Sharon Dowsett described it as “a playful princess with a naughty side.” One things for sure – we wouldn’t mind joining Ashish’s gang.
