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.

Creating The Narrative

Creating The Narrative and bringing the light

Creating The Narrative and bringing the light

We are really excited about what is happening here at The Lost Project, not only have we created a whole new narrative that we and several of our clients are excited about. Which in and of itself is really good news and will with time put us in the place we want to be.

Naturally we are taking this slow and making sure that all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. While there are some areas that are being discussed that will open doors and opportunities to new and established creative talent that wants to step up. We will support this but for our own projects we are going to be taking smaller steps and keeping things small with a carefully structured hand picked team of people from locations that we are familiar with and know we can trust.

With the potential avenues that are being brought into play, we are really excited about the prospect of whats coming up and will be revealing details over the coming weeks.

From fashion to film and TV, there are endless opportunities to be had, we are already seeing the potential of this and given that we want to specialise more in the film and TV sector we will only dip our collective toes into the water of fashion for that, we have some ideas that need support from designers and have already put the feelers out on that front.

Our team is pushing hard to create something special and stay within the boundaries of our remit, commercial and art can work together and we fully intend to prove it.

We are now sketching out designs to pitch to a designer for a pop up show and a PR agent is backing the plans which is fantastic news and will add an extra edge to the work coming up.

My Ideal Destination and KitKase My Ideal Package

Something I have been putting off is travelling, with various personal, professional and financial restraints on my time I really felt that it was for the best that I stick to one place and spot for a while but as you can imagine now that I am a little freer on the time front the urge to travel has started to make me feel the need to move again. Yes the weather is improving here in Scotland but I do miss South Asia and for work I am really beginning to think its time to move on.

The Road Less Travelled

What does have to do with My Ideal Destination and KitKase you ask? Well its simple. I love the level of service that the Ideal destination team brings and when it comes to luggage no one is better than KitKase to help pack my gear and take to the road again.

A major part of the appeal of My Ideal Destination is there concierge service, for those unfamiliar with this and having not travelled for business as much as I have done over the years, there are some major plus points to this (and for anyone looking to take a break), the team are focused on customer service and for me that allows my mind to be set and focused on the task at hand; locations, meetings and business.

They can and do make recommendations and if requested bookings on your behalf. As a makeup artist and writer (With producer credits coming soon) I love the A list treatment the company offers, it does make me feel like one of my idols from the Golden age of Hollywood. Making them and ideal Honeymoon agency or for that weekend getaway where you just want to be able to relax and enjoy the trip rather than worry about researching restaurants etc before you go.

As to luggage, I have to admit, KitKase is a must have for me. There cabin friendly suitcases are both eye-catching and practical with the added edge of being a Luxury travel companion. For me there is something special about the Kases that just makes them perfect for the work I am planning and how my business will change over the coming months. Not only that but as a weekend or short trip case, Kitkase is a perfect addition to your travels and high on my list of recommendations for any looking for something fun and luxurious in the same package.

Both of these companies are working on something special together which I will be talking about soon and I am really happy that I have them in my working arsenal and can talk about them.

Changing the Narrative of The Lost Project

Changing the Narrative of The Lost Project

Over the last 18 months we have worked extremely hard alongside our creative director James Clark, who has been a diligent and hardworking beauty editor for a major magazine, however that is all changing and as much as we loved what he did, it has been decided that we will do it for ourselves.

Talking to some of the agencies and brands we have worked with over the last 18 months they are coming over to the Lost Project and we will be building our network and creating online articles focusing on beauty, lifestyle and art.

Already seeing some interest, over the next month we will add new members to the online team who will work with us to create articles, making full use of social media marketing and of course working to create beautiful images with a lost project twist.

It does feel like a huge relief to know that we can finally really put the focus back on ourselves and the clients we have built a relationship with.

This change of narrative is something we are really excited about and now we will be able to grow and redefine our story.
