BACKSTAGE| Ones To Watch SS15

Ahead of the distinguished Ones To Watch show, Fashion Scout headed backstage to know what hair and beauty looks would take priority for SS15. This year Ones to Watch were Cassandra Verity Green, Keiko Nihiyama, Min Wu and Youjia Jin. We got the chance to speak to some of the people who make this possible.

In order to encompass an aesthetic representative of all four collections being shown - the challenge for the teams of Tony & Guy and The Body Shop is to style the models in a way that fits all four designer’s collections. Siljie Vicent, the head of hair at Tony and Guy shares their concepts of hair styling. “The hair concept that will be shared by all four designers is a summery look," she said. "Soft textures, all the white from the face but with white hairlines. We use a lot of texture volume spray to give a loose pull back and its all knots in the back sitting nice and tight.”

Head of make-up with The Body Shop, Lan Nguyen Grealiss also gave us a sneak peek. “Looking at all the clothes, they were minimalist but in girly pink and pastel. At the same time we want to put a wide factor for hair and make up. To keep it girly we went to the earthy tone.” 

The teams used coral and orange colour to keep it reflective but muted. By adding the soft peach tone blush with clear gel to keep it minimalistic, Lan assured us that natural faces with neutral eyes are the make-up highlight. They used the Vitamin E spray from The Body Shop to keep the skin fresh.

“Every year is quite exciting and everyone is very different!” Ones to Watch stylist Rebekah Roy said. “Cassandra and her knitwear, Keiko with her beautiful collection inspired by Aquariums, Youjia is very elegant, throwing from white to grey and Min Wu is very fun and pastel. Each designer is very unique and special when the panel chose them. I think Fashion Scout is a great platform and a wonderful venue," she continued. "We have a lot of designers who stay with Fashion Scout who have their show for many years. It is such a great team to work in here!”
