Afterpay Australian Fashion Week BEC + BRIDGE X Manicare®
Following the rousing success of the 2022 partnership, both brands were eager to continue working together, bringing the world of fashion and beauty together again.
Designers Bec Cooper and Bridget Yorston, deeply influenced by their fashion-centric teenage years, drew inspiration from the late '80s and early '90s, setting the stage for an unforgettable runway experience.
The beauty looks for the show were meticulously crafted by industry leaders Meccabeauty, Redken, and Manicare in collaboration with Nail Technician Cindy Vellis and her team.
Manicare, Australia's #1 Beauty Tool and Accessories brand, was the official nail sponsor for the show. The models flaunted high-gloss, high-shine, clean manicures and pedicures with a touch of glam! Manicare worked with Nail Technician Cindy Vellis to curate the nail brief to achieve this look.
The nails were prepped by removing any existing nail polish with Manicare Nail Polish Remover. Next, the Manicare x Bec+Bridge Fashion Nail Shapers precisely shaped and tidied the nails, while the Manicare 4-way buffer smoothed the nail beds. Then the base coat, Start to Finish by Manicare, provided a solid foundation for the carefully selected nude polish tailored to complement each model's skin tone. Finally, the team artistically applied the scattered rhinestones using nail glue from Glam Nail Glue. Although a slow and delicate process, the result was undeniably worth it, producing breathtaking nails that perfectly complemented the collection.
Cindy described the nail vibe of the BEC + BRIDGE show as "clean, shiny, and vibing" This carefully curated look not only embraced the models' natural beauty but also added a touch of glamour and allure to complete the overall aesthetic of the collection.
The BEC + BRIDGE Resort 23/24 collection will be available from October. Stay tuned to witness the fusion of '90s minimalism and grunge reimagined for the modern fashion landscape.
