WARNING: The models in the pictures are completely naked so I have kept the pictures small. You can click on the pictures to make them bigger.
If you follow us on twitter you will know where we have been for the last week or so. For the benefit of those that have no idea I will be writing a series of posts to fill you in, up to the point where I was struck down and bed ridden with the dreaded flu.
Date: 21st October 2010
Location: Victoria House, Russell Square
Event: MAC Pro to Pro party
Essentially the Pro to Pro party was an industry networking event and it served that purpose perfectly, it also was a brilliant excuse for a knees up.
The theme of the party was Typography. I took the picture (left) and sent it to Danny (Typographer) He replied with 'Fail, bad typography. Widows and orphans everywhere'
For those of you like me; that have no idea what he was banging on about... apparently it's bad to have a single word on one line and some of the full stops and commas are in the wrong places. BORING... Ok, so the poster might be a bit of a fail but what about the party itself?
The body painting was incredible much of it created by some old friends, Dean Rudd - Pro Trainer, Caroline Donnelly- Senior Artist, Tiffany J - US Senior artist and many more.
My pictures don't do the incredible artistry justice. I also have to give massive props to the models that stayed absolutely still for 3 hours while all around were abusing the free bar.
We caught up with Terry Barber - Director of Artistry as he was holding court. Literally nothing he told us is printable but we were roaring with laughter; as always the life and soul.
Also in attendance was Andrew Gallimore - Beth Ditto's MUA and creator of many of the Ditto looks we have recreated.
Sharon Dowsett - Top fashion MUA who created the Kate Hudson ELLE cover look that Nic recreated.
Hamilton - Hair stylist for Dita Von Teese, Scissor Sisters etc
Georgina Graham - Top fashion MUA. Georgina made my night "I copied your Sophia Loren on Sophia Loren" Seriously Georgina? I told her there and then that I was twittering that quote and she can't take it back.
There were so many people at Pro to Pro that we didn't get the chance to meet and would have loved to.
Hopefully MAC will throw another one next year and hopefully we will be invited again.
