September: the month of fashion events worldwide. Get the inside scoop on what our team has been up to this month to join in on the fashion festivities.
September has been a whirlwind of fashion events for the Maurice Meade Artistic Team.
Our team of 20 strong stylists kicked off their month at the Karrinyup Shopping Centre Spring Summer Fashion Launch, creating soft waterfall braids to pair with the latest high street looks. The event featured a catwalk parade along with a styling Q&A with fashion blogger Amanda Shadforth from Oracle Fox.

On the 9th September our Me by Maurice Meade team prepped models with a modern take on Parisian classic braids and textured buns for the Elle Boutique charity cocktail event and fashion show, with all proceeds going to Telethon Speech and Hearing. It was an ultra chic runway, showcasing the best high end designer fashion and swimwear that Perth has to offer.
For Claremont Quarter’s ‘Meet the Designer’ event with Akira, the Claremont and Me by Maurice Meade teams put a stunning hair and makeup look together featuring a tousled braided updo, bare skin and eyes and bold orange lips.

Then of course came the 2015 Telstra Perth Fashion Festival – our team were so excited for fashion week and spent weeks in the lead up perfecting the styles. We started our TPFF involvement with the Myer Fashion Lunch, which was a highlight for the team, creating soft, ultra glossy waves to grace the runways.
On TPFF closing night we worked alongside WA fashion labels Ae’lkemi and Steph Audino. Models walking for Steph Audino wore their hair slicked back on top with the length sculpted into a classic water wave. For the Ae’lkemi runway our team worked with faux fringes supplied by WASP to create a bold Jane Birkin inspired look with a strong 1970’s vibe.
According to Style Director Luke Masters the process for preparing for each fashion event has become an artform in itself. He says the most important part is ensuring that our interpretation meets with the designer’s vision.
“After receiving a brief from the designers, the art team gets together to play around and create our own interpretation of the brief and put provide any further recommendations to the designers,” said Luke. “We then refine our technique to make sure that all curls, waves and parts are uniform. Teamwork is vital.”
It has been an amazing month full of inspiration and creativity. But stay tuned, our team has plenty of steam left for the remainder of 2015!
