Backstage at Fam Irvoll excitement was
high for the designers third season at Fashion Scout. We caught up with the
designer herself as she prepared for the show. Despite the build up the
atmosphere was tranquil, "I am super excited, I just feel like I should be
doing more." Fam was overseeing the preparation in all aspects. "This
season I am doing a bit more of an urban look, we are including all of those
ridiculous words like 'YOLO' and 'LOL' there is a lot of humour in it".
Models were each given an individual
interpretation of a 90s chola girl. From big blow-dries to tight braids, dark
lips and drawn-on brows. The inspiration was a mix 90s street, TLC, Latina
chola girls and contemporary slang, resulting in an explosive mix.
