A New Chapter is Being Written With The Lost Creatives

A New Chapter is Being Written With The Lost Creatives site being built and new work in development for the film and Internet TV sector. We love the direction that The Lost Project is taking as we become a go to for beauty writing with a series of PR agents across the UK and USA coming to the table looking for additional support.

Madame La La Bronzing Ball

The Madam La La Bronzing Ball is a quirky little product with a lot of punch. Designed to work with a wide range of skin tones it is the kind of quick fix that is a must have multi purpose product that will change your makeup and tanning game.

On first inspection we see a small pot with a clear lid revealing a warm, golden toned cream that is aesthetically pleasing. Taking off the lid we are greeted with the light perfume of coconut, strong enough to be noticed but not overpowering it does make you think tropical climes which given the tanning properties is an appropriate and welcome touch that makes the Bronzing Ball a definite must for fast and easy tanning with a touch of the tropics.

“Bronzing Ball is a 180°colour cosmetics twist-up cream bronzer for a precise glide on instant bronze – no makeup brushes needed! Bronzing Ball achieves an easy year round bronzed glow in effortless strokes – one shade suits all. Infused with Vitamin E & Coco Water hydrating properties the luminous and glimmering shade with a 180° dome applicator is easy to use for bronzing, contouring and highlighting the cheeks, lips and eyes.”

Testing the product is easy, the ball shape allows you to swipe the colour directly onto the skin with ease and it blends smoothly creating a warm even tan where applied. Minimal fuss and maximum impact when you build the colour up through layering.

*This would be a great addition to a working kit for fashion artists or anyone in the wedding sector.

From a media artist perspective this is a great little item to slip into a working kit for shoots where a touch of bronze is required or you are working TV/film/fashion projects it can be a major plus for the continuity side, quickly touching up a tan on a shoot or sculpting a models face with a few swipes of this beautiful cream verses heavy powders or ashy creams, adding depth and warmth to the face without hassle. A welcome addition to the beauty world the company deserves plaudits and applause for their innovative beauty and tanning line.

The Lost Narrative Defined

I have written a few blogs over the last week or so that while I stand by the commentary I did feel it was ott and dramatic and deserved to be pulled so if anyone is wondering why its simple. I do stand by it but just decided that its not worth the hassle and I want to focus my energies on better things. While this may seem like an admission of guilt its far, far from it. Call me a primadonna if you wish, I really don’t mind. I want to clarify a few small points and clear the air before I start my run at defining what the Lost Boys and Lost Girls story is as a narrative and visual concept, it has a little touch of darkness to it and has been brewing in my head for a long time.

same shit different day

In addition to this as a means to move forward I spoke to one of my scriptwriters and will be sitting this weekend sketching, going through old designs and knuckling down to do the creative and commercial work I have been promising myself I would get done. Calls will be made to those who have shown loyalty and I am going to reinvest not only in my own business again but in the work I have been postponing to support others.

This does not mean I will not be available for clients, far from it, what it does mean is that priority goes to my own work and I will be extremely selective who I work with from this point on.

While the sentiment may be same shit different day, it won’t be my groundhog day and I can see a way to end the current narrative. The problems are no longer mine and I can finally put this to bed and give myself the opportunity to showcase my own skills.

Watch this space, The Lost Stories (combined with Behind the Brushes) is coming back with some fantastic narratives and beauty launches thanks mainly to my connections to various PR agencies which will allow me to give a little time to clearing the cobwebs creatively and finally doing justice to the Lost Girls and the Lost Boys concept that I have on paper created giving it a more visual sense of what its all about.

Introducing Ladylike Rebel Modern Vintage Dresses

I am really excited about the upcoming show as I will not only be meeting but also shooting editorial content and a look book for the fantastic Ladylike Rebel clothing line. I was fortunate enough to get some extra info that I could share with you all about this fun, quirky beautiful clothing line.

Ladylike rebel velvet dress

When I was a little girl, I had a favourite doll. Funnily enough, she was named after me or better still, I was named after her.

I used to sew clothing for her and for myself on my mother's vintage Singer sewing machine. I used to draw and sketch out my designs and was inspired and fascinated by the old Hollywood starlets and the beautiful dresses and their personal style. (I still am!)

I was head strong, girly but a tomboy when I chose to be. Feminine but a ‘Rebel’ too. My childhood nickname was 'Trouble' (but I really was a good girl) I knew what I wanted out of life even then. That little girl lived her 'adult' life through that scruffy little doll. I imagined all the things I wanted to do, wanted to be, and wanted to achieve before I was 30 through playing with that Sindy Doll. I dared to dream. My goodness, it's taken a while. 

I needed to live life as an grownup for a while so that I can finally achieve one of my biggest personal aspirations. That need to create and achieve has carried me through my adult and family life, spurring me on until now.

And yes, It's taken a good while.  But I'm finally here. It's time to share my childhood dreams combined with my womanly imagination. Fashion to me is an art gallery filled with skill, imagination, culture, innovation, history and everything I love COMBINED. The garments I create are more than stitched up pieces of fabric. Each garment tells a story of artistic freedom and foretell the wearer’s individuality. Each piece is just like an artist’s canvas. The stitching is the brushes, the fabrics are the paints and the designs are each new canvas. 

“…Create the things you wish existed!”  To me, you must design a garment you would love to wear yourself because if you don’t love it, nobody else will!

I live for vintage styled dresses, especially around the 1950's era which I adore. As as child, I was obsessed with deconstructing dresses and putting them back together again from scratch. I needed to know how they were made to look like they did. So a few years ago, I finally attended the London College Of Fashion to specifically to learn the traditional ‘draping’ technique, the construction, fitting. Best thing I ever did. I love that era within fashion for the simple fact that the women looked so feminine. There is an particular ‘Lady Like’ elegance I revel in and I just adore. I just wants to be a part of that and share my Lady Like but Rebellious vision of women’s fashion. Pushing boundaries and thinking beyond the usual. The new rule of fashion is that there are NO RULES! It’s about taking yourself out of your comfort zone just a touch and trying something a little different and unexpected. And that is the way I wish to create beautiful clothing.

“Where Vintage, Modern and Couture Beautifully Collide!”

My brand motto is made up of who I am and what I would like myself and the brand to become: 

Vintage, classic influence, production and styling. Modern and sustainable use of fabrics and accessories - reducing my “Fashion Footprint”Couture creations made to measure and designed specifically to be individualistic and unique Design production in small quantities to ensure brand exclusivity

A thought, a movement, a brand.

To put it simply, I'm still that little girl, living in a Modern world, who finds joy creating Couture and who's inspired by her love of Vintage in her little country Atelier…

LadyLike Rebel will be at the Enterkine Country House Hotel on the 21st for the popup show alongside Lost Project and D-ink.

Bustoire Lingerie comes to Scotland

Joyce Bustoire founder

Founded by Joyce Labinjo, Bustoire is a glamorous addition to the lingerie and nightwear market perfect for the woman with curves.

The inspiration for Bustoire began whilst on a lingerie shopping trip in Cambridge in the UK with a friend. My friend, who has a small cup size, had her pick of lingerie and nightwear in every shop we entered. When it came to finding nightwear to fit me I couldn’t find anything that fit a large cup size and was in natural fabrics like silk satin or chiffon. They simply didn’t exist.

Designed to meet the needs of the curvy, Bustoire has become a staple of the market with its simple philosophy of a bigger cup size doesn’t mean your plus size or that you don’t deserve to feel beautiful and glamorous.

Based in the heart of London, the entire range is British based and has its roots in glamour, giving that sense of luxury with the use of satin, silk and chiffon to create sumptuous garments that are feminine, practical and designed to meet the needs and wants of the modern woman without losing that touch of decadence that only truly beautiful nightwear can provide.

For an opportunity to meet the designer Bustoire will be available at the Enterkine country House Hotel pop up show on the 21st of July alongside a range of other designers and stalls.

International Fashion Designers Exhibiting In a New Marleybone Popup Show

This May sees a unique opportunity to see and buy new designs from international designers at a new pop-up shop in Marylebone, London. The event on 13-26 May is organised by ‘Silk Road Fashion in London’ and ‘Adam and Alice’ brands.

With Creative director JamesC joining them on the 14th of May as head of makeup for a multi designer catwalk segment, we are really excited about the prospects of the show and what is to come from it. We are already prepping a range of new designs for future projects and working out potential marketing avenues to support the show.

The term silk road in and of itself is really clever and has its roots in trade roads and travel which is really appropriate given the upcoming event which is designed as a showcase. The event is designed to mimic the bizarre’s of the past where people of all cultures and creeds would gather to meet and greet, see friends, do business and the find the latest fashions. Seeing the combination of the Silk Road team and of course Adam and Alice is fantastic and will open the doors to a wide range of creative opportunities for artists across the board and as a makeup artist and creative team we are really excited to be a part of this.

As a networking opportunity this is an amazing place to be and over the run there will be a variety of small shows, open days for the public, guest speakers and lectures all based around the fashion world.

The leading lights behind this show Adam and Alice and The Silk Road Fashion in London team have put together a stellar itinerary and we are really excited to be a part of this.
