Every now and then we get a spectacular combination of client, character and stylist, where all the mystical stars are aligned, the creative juices flow and the outfit ascends to the next level.
This occurred a few months back when we met Andrew who had wandered into our shop from his corporate office around the corner. One of the creative challenges of styling clients in the CBD is they can only afford their lunch break to get their concept sorted. They can be looking for anything from a standard character such as Superman to an anthropomorphic jungle tiger – it can be random. Lucky for Andrew (and us!) he enquired as to how we could help him be David Bowie.
Bowie is the spiritual guide of many of the stylists who work in the store. We couldn’t help but get seriously excited.
We started by assessing our client’s general expectations, sizing and aptitude for generally going all out – or as we say – Next Level.
Luckily for us (and Andrew!), he said Yes to each suggestion!
The end result – a spectacular tribute to the beloved Bowie with all the bells and whistles – Purple shimmer onesie, custom cut and styled Ziggy wig, makeup applied by a helpful makeup artist Elisa Clark, custom painted and glittered boots, and a feather boa tricked out with LED lights!
Andrew sent us this happy snap of him singing “Ziggy Stardust” – on stage – at the work Christmas party!
Thanks Andrew, you nailed it!
