The show saw models of all ages tread the catwalk with make-up looks created by make-up artist Nikki Palmer using the Limited Edition Brush with Fashion range and wearing designs from William Tempest
and Jena Theo
(Nikki, William and Jena are all London College of Fashion graduates). ELLEs Contributing Editor Ben Grimes closed the show wearing the outfit that will be seen in the poster campaign for the collaboration, a William Tempest dress from his debut a/w 09 collection. The dress used in the window poster is one of my favourite designs it has an energy and vibrancy that keeps it looking interesting and current today said William. The Brush with Fashion make-up collection is not only totally on-trend for spring but is also sustainable and cruelty-free, two issues that are very close to my heart he added.
The exciting collection and concept looks set to become a mainstay for The Body Shop, this is the first of an exciting series of partnerships with the world of fashion, announced Ann Massal, International Brand and Innovation Director for The Body Shop.
The Limited Edition collection, which goes on sale in January, consists of four products an eye palette, £15, which comes in two sets of shades; an Illuminating Face Base, £14, which Team ELLE has fallen in love with - it makes you look like youve had a facial, when youve actually only had five hours sleep; a Hi-Shine Lip Treatment, £9.50, in two shades Pink Cream or Juicy Peach and a Tailored Cheek Tint, £10. Each of the products includes an integrated brush, which makes making-up on-the-go easy - perfect on dark January mornings.
