Paris, part deux

First, I am sorry to dissapoint you but I won't be posting many pics, simply because I don't have them.

During the afternoon we were introduced Aaron de Mey, the new make-up artistic director of the house. He just exudes creativity, and looking at his scrapbooks was such an experience. We could see where his inspiration comes from, and what is his working method.


I also liked the fact that he was very down to earth which I guess is not very common. For instance, he related some dreadful anecdotes: like this designer (he didn't give names) who made him change make-up of all the models five minutes before the show started (!).

Overall, it was such an amazing and fulfilling day.

Very cool and very cool of him to not name drop. I can imagine it would be difficult to put up with demands, especially for people with an artistic side.

thanks for the comment,
I made it myself and am actually quite proud of it.. some 'on' pictures will come soon..and its actually not a dress but more like a top! great blog you got :)

AVA said...

wow thanks, that's like the greatest compliment ever..

the green/brown part is leather, from an old jacket,
the white part is just coton, old bottom of my mother's dress.

the stitching and detailing and everything is not perfect - I never sew, and don't even have a machine - but it doesn't show in the pictures ;)

aaron is very inspiring make-up artist.
i'm unclear> he's the new artistic director of Lancome?
if so what of Gucci?

Allure said...

^Yes, he's the new artistic director. He didn't mentioned anything about Gucci.
