With Timur Kim's designs set to hit the catwalk at 13:30, we went backstage to see how The Body Shop and Toni & Guy teams were preparing make-up and hair for the show.
“Timur's inspiration is in between architecture and really natural so the hair matches the clothes,” says head of hair, Toni & Guy's Chie Sato. “It almost looks undone. It's about movement, it's really soft.” Claire De-Graft, head of make-up for The Body Shop UK has taken the same approach. “It's really natural, clear skin with a bit of contour on the cheeks,” she said. “Because the clothes have a lot of texture and pattern we felt with the designer, it should be kept quite minimal.”
Backstage abuzz with activity, we look forward to seeing the collection in its entirety.
