Q&A with make-up artist Coco HiraniSupporting Sustainable Fashion
Weleda is excited to be collaborating with young fashion designer Emma Gluziki on her final show at Central St Martins on 16 May, when she will showcase her sustainable collection ‘Imprint of the None’. Working with makeup artist Coco Hirani for the show, Weleda will provide sustainable skincare to prep, moisturise, nourish and cleanse the six models for the show. We caught up with Coco backstage ahead of the show.
Coco, what inspired you to go into make-up artistry, how long have you worked in the industry, were you always interested in makeup?
Do you work mainly in fashion or do you do other projects for example red carpet beauty or bridal beauty?
I began doing a lot of bridal work but I found that I have a passion for fashion, so naturally I invested much of my time in that sector of the industry. Since then I have delved into other areas and I work with musicians, actors, red carpet, film and television and commercial projects.
What are the differences and pressures working on a live show?
What’s your signature style? Have you built a reputation for creating any particular kind of look?
What is the inspiration behind the Central St Martins show?
How will your makeup look compliment the pieces from the designer?
Which Weleda products will you be using to achieve the look? How important is sustainability in the world of fashion and beauty?
Coco what is your personal ethos about beauty and your approach to your own makeup and skincare?
Meet the designer: Emma Gluziki
Weleda is excited to be collaborating with young fashion designer Emma Gluziki on her final
show at Central St Martins, when she will showcase her collection ‘Imprint of the None’. Emma uses vintage or natural fabrics such as hemp to create textiles printed with biodegradable inks and natural dyes, using traditional techniques such as marbling or wax. Her textiles are inspired by the Japanese design concept of ‘Notan’- the balance between postive and negative space, and are predominantly black and white. The collection tells the story of reconnecting with the environment and with people from a position of loneliness.
