MODEL MOMENTS AT MICHAEL VAN DER HAM

Dutch designer Michael van der Ham is known for his incredibly feminine collections, and this season was no exception. The ethereal models took to the catwalk in luxurious textures of ocean coloured organza, velvet and jacquard, topped off with silky waves and flashes of purple eyeliner – perfectly matched to the prettiness of the collection. We grabbed some model moments with the backstage babes pre-show…


MICHAEL’S ANGELS
Casting assistant Chloe Rosolek at Sarah Murray Casting told us they “were looking for young, cute girls who had an innocent vibe, really angelic. The collection is very delicate and beautiful so the models had to be delicate and beautiful too.”

THE GO PRO GIRL
We spotted model Jade De Lavareille dashing around with a Go Pro camera pre-show. “I make films!” she told us, “I’m always taking photos and filming so I’m never bored backstage. The energy here gives you so much more energy, and I’m drinking a lot of coconut water.”

CLOTHES CRUSHING
Brit model Kirstie Brittain was seriously into her show look, “It’s so pretty, short, with an amazing gold piece. This is one of the prettiest collections I’ve seen, it’s so nice! Really girly and the shoes are so high – slightly painful but amazing.”
