Summer Vamp

Summer Vamp - John Bishop - 19 August 70

19 visualises a Summer Vamp, and make-up is geared for a seductive summer. Shades of Dietrich abound – lips are invitingly red, eyes are lowered and stained with yellows, greens, plums and browns… Our model’s hair was dressed by Jason at Jingles. For a romantic effect we covered it with a black fishnet shawl by J.C.Brosseau from Feathers.

The stunning model is Willy van Rooy, who also happens to be the model that my mannequin is based on. For more background on this connection please click here. Willy is also a very talented designer, so do check out her website http://willyvanrooy.com/ or follow her on Instagram.
