BACKSTAGE| Fam Irvoll FEB'13

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.
