Tragically Beautiful Giles

EBT reports from backstage at London Fashion Week


By Suzanne Scott

Wuthering Heights Cathy on the moors served as inspiration for Giles' beautifully gothic look. MAC make-up artist Lucia Pieroni drew references from Sleepy Hollow with a dark and sunken eye (very beautiful despite its description!) with MAC Paint Pot in Ground Work which she buffed over the area area, around the socket and swept under the eye where dark circles would naturally appear. Strobe cream highlighted the brow and cheekbones and MAC lipstick in Harvest was patted on to lips.



Paul Hanlon, using Label M, used his fingers to gather hair in a low pony, pulling in the elastic after it was secured and then pushing it back up so the pony is slightly baggy - ad if it had been slept in. Giles blowtorches some of the dresses in his collection leaving singed holes remaining. The off cuts from the dresses were tied in a bow around the pony.

An LFW fave.
