Throughout Spring and Summer, we at FAULT have been going backstage at some of the world’s biggest festivals to give you an exclusive insight into what happens behind the scenes at this Summer’s showpiece events.

chelsea boots - new look

Man about town? These men’s flat heel Chelsea boots offer a well-heeled look for an urban festival like Sonar. Although they look like leather, the imitation material is easier to protect than the real deal and so are perfect for wet weather events too. STYLE: MEN’S

As we all know, though, there’s so much more to a great festival experience than the music. The overall vibe of the festival is crucial –  and that starts with the people in attendance. A bad crowd can ruin a great band whereas a good crowd can turn a great performance into an incredible experience. Finding your niche in the now-overflowing festival market can be tough, and there are always exceptions to every festival ‘type’. As always, however, the great unifier at large events – from ballgowns or jeggings at a party to suits or slacks at a seminar – is usually the fashion on display.

STYLE: NEON BOHO

Showing off your sense of style suggests a sense of belonging to a particular festival crowd. Individuals tend to unite at big festivals under the banner of mutual appreciation for a certain type of experience: whether you’re a rocker at Glastonbury, a techno-head at Sonar, a hipster at SXSW or someone who really, REALLY likes dressing up at Secret Garden Party…

These real leather multi-strap boots are a stylish and practical way to complete any festival outfit. Bold enough to make a statement and tough enough to brave any mud, they're a great tent-side or city-wide option.

Fashion is so important for turning any festival from an outdoor concert into a celebration of musical appreciation – and that is why we are so pleased to have teamed up with savvy British retailer New Look  to showcase not just the best of contemporary festival outfits but also to look back over the years at some of the most inspiring and influential festival fashion trends of the past 45 years.

ELLA EYRE – EXCLUSIVE SHOOT FOR FAULT ISSUE 18 (TEASER)

We are delighted to reveal Ella Eyre as FAULT Magazine Issue 18′s opening feature for the ‘Sounds of 2014′ section. Ella’s soulful voice, bold style  and energetic stage-presence encompasses everything it means to be RAW on and off the stage.

Ella Eyre was shot by Miles Holder and styled by Rachel Holland  at the Malmaison hotel

At just 20 years old, Ella Eyre is already making waves with her soulful voice, phenomenal stage presence, and bold style. A graduate of the BRIT School, she cut her teeth on tour with Rudimental, featuring on their no.1 single ‘Waiting All Night’ in 2013 …

FAULT: You’ve got a distinctive personal style, from your clothes to your already famous hair. What about the relationship between music and fashion?

Ella: It’s really interesting because my Mum was a fashion designer for about twenty years and so she’s always sort of forced clothing on me! I was a real tomboy so I’ve always just wanted to be comfortable, but also to look good. My motto is a kind of ‘simple but sexy.’

What do you want to say with the album? Are core themes starting to emerge?

 I wrote my album over the course of three years so it’s a lot of growing up, and a lot of experiences that I had to deal with. As I said, it’s not that my experiences are more important than anyone else’s, I just want people to listen and relate and tune into the feeling of each track.

Your debut single ‘If I Go’ came out in July. Can you tell us a bit about it?

‘If I Go’ is basically about being with somebody and feeling caged in a way, or feeling that it’s not healthy. It was a question of me going, ‘this isn’t working at the moment, before I commit fully can I go away and do what I want to do, and come back to it…It’s not that I don’t want you now, it’s that I want you later. [laughs.]

Backstage at Berlin Fashion Week: DARE by Johny Dar

DSC_7680 (Custom)

Johny Dar closed the show at Berlin Fashion Week with his bold combinations of fashion design and body art

Artist and fashion designer Johny Dar closed Berlin Fashion Week with a spectacular 30 minute show of his work. FAULT spoke to the man behind the painted models…

FAULT: Congratulations on an incredible show, how has been the response so far?

Johny: The crowd clapped for three minutes, we had a standing ovation and people who were at the show definitely enjoyed it because it was a real show.

You opened and closed the show with some beautifully painted models, similar to your work on Tuuli Shipster [Rankin's wife]. How has the artwork on these models continued on from your work on Dar the Book and the ‘Tuuli by Dar’ project? 

I was setting myself up for the biggest challenge of my career by promising to paint 11 models and three performers in one day before the show, when my work with Tuuli took anything between 6 to 12 hours to create each look, and the images from DAR the BOOK came from a journey of over five years. So for this show I had to come up with a technique where I didn’t have to sacrifice the detail and potency of my style that really comes through in Tuuli by Dar, but where I was also able to get it done within the 16 hours right before the show. The body is split into two halves, which in this case represented the masculine and feminine aspects within the body.

Did you face any challenges? 

Well, put it this way, by 10 o clock in the morning I was supposed to be done with the first layer of the models, but by 10 o’ clock I had a leg and a half done and only 4 out of 11 models had showed up. Really the show was overcoming challenges until it ended – until the last second everything was on the verge of collapse and somehow we made it through.

Talk us through the idea behind the incredible hair pieces they were wearing in the opening?

I wanted to create a veil out of the human body – out of an extension of the human body – so naturally what came to mind was the hair as that veil to hide behind and show as much as you are comfortable with. For me there is nothing more mysterious and sexy than flowing hair.

What thoughts were you trying to express with the clothing? It felt very tribal and earthy to us. 

I’m glad that’s how you see the collection. So far we have been attracting a great variety of reviews on the fashion which is great because I wanted it to be free from any defined style, so naturally it invokes variation in the reviews.

What I showed in this collection is basically different ways to wear your sexuality and sensuality as an empowerment, because I believe that those aspects should really empower the feminine not make her into a sex object or a material possession.

This collection was meant to be a journey through the various aspects of security and insecurity within the feminine experience – like not having big enough boobs so stuffing the dress with mesh, or being sick and tired of it all so just wearing an elastic band. It was meant to show the difference between overwhelming yourself with an outfit and letting your wings take form through your outfit.

Tell us about your production choices for music, lighting and graphics. 

I definitely didn’t want it to be what fashion is today, which is another fast food order – super size it, double cheese it, give it to me in the pink wrapper instead of the blue wrapper for the season. I’m sick and tired of the same old show.

I wanted to show the symbiosis between music, art and fashion and how they are just the same person in different roles, in different outfits, in different expressions. Because, after all, it was meant to be an original experience beyond selling clothing.

You’ve said this was a prelude to your couture collection next season, any hints as to what we can expect from that? 

If you are looking at the body painted part of the show you can imagine high-end couture ski-suits next. The laser cut out pieces – you can expect maybe a 3D head to toe dress showing off a million colours.

With the coming couture collection I’m introducing a new idea for couture, a new concept for design in relation to the body, and how we can reintroduce our relationship towards clothing and creating our image. So it’s designing from a body perspective rather than imposing an idea or concept upon the body.

Dannii Minogue – exclusive shoot for FAULT Issue 18′s reversible cover

Dannii Minogue- FAULT Magazine Issue 18 - reversible cover WEB

Dannii Minogue was shot in London by photographer James D Kelly and styled by Rachel Holland exclusively for the front cover of FAULT Issue 18

FAULT Magazine Issue 18 – the RAW Issue features multi-talented Australian beauty Dannii Minogue as its reversible cover feature. Dubbed (by us, for the feature ‘s title) the “Down Under Designer Darling”, Dannii’s sense of style is self-evident as she shines in looks by the likes of Nicole Farhi, Missoni and Viktor & Rolf.

Shot exclusively for FAULT at the Hoxton Hotel in London by photographer James D Kelly with styling by Rachel Holland, Dannii’s feature includes an in-depth interview and runs over 9 pages in the magazine, including the Style section cover inside the magazine.

In the interview, Dannii speaks about life in Australia with her 4 year old son, Ethan, her desire to get back into TV in the UK, her dreams of working on her own productions and her continuing achievements in the fields of music and fashion.

FAULT: We hear that you’re looking to do some other things in future in addition to working on ‘X Factor (Australia)’ – could you elaborate?

Dannii: I’ve been having meetings about TV that I might come back and do here. I definitely want to come back and do something – I’m just trying to find the right thing, Leaving X Factor here when it was just such a juggernaut… you kind of want it [the new project] to be something just as special. I guess I am looking for projects where I can be involved, not just as hired talent but more from the production side. I’m starting to look at that as something I can retire into – not just yet but, at some point, I’d love to being doing both: being on camera and also involved in the production.

Interview by Louis Sheridan

That’s definitely the way to do it, take control! Let’s talk about music too… I hear you’re back in the studio, can you tell us more about that?

Yeah, I recorded some stuff that I’ve co-written and some stuff that friends have written and others that I’ve found and just love. I’m just trying out loads of different stuff with no pressure of a record company or a deal or a date or anything. I’m actually really enjoying it. I’ve spoken to a few record companies, I’ve said I’m not ready to commit to anything and they’re like, “That’s cool, that’s how it should be. Just do it and enjoy it, and from that enjoyment you’ll find something”, so I’m just seeing if I can find that something special but, again, it’s been so long since I’ve done it that I don’t want to come back with something unless it’s special.

You recently announced the launch of your own online e-commerce store, DanniiShop.com, and have also worked on a clothing line in Australia for petite sized women [Dannii for Target, available in Australia]. Tell us about that?

Yeah, I’ve been working on a big range of stuff, primarily for Australia, at the moment. Earlier this year we were just trying to make sure that you could get the stuff of DanniiShop over here – delivered online and stuff – and now you can. That’s a project that I love working on.

What is your FAULT?

My fault… I think I’ve noticed I’m a real worrier. Especially since being a mum, I just worry about stuff and I’m like, “I don’t want to be that person!” I worry a lot, it’s stupid. It’s such a waste of energy and time – I need to toughen up!
