FAULT Magazine Issue 20 – the Faces Issue will feature reality TV star and global style phenomenon Kylie Jenner as its front cover feature this Spring. As one of the most widely followed personalities on social media today, Kylie is already a bone fide tastemaker at the tender age of just 17.

FAULT’s exclusive shoot with Kylie runs over 12 pages inside the issue (in addition to the front cover) and also includes the issue’s Style section cover – which is available as a special edition front cover edition in its own right.

Shot in LA to meet the ‘Faces’ theme of FAULT’s landmark 20th issue, renowned celebrity photographer Lionel Deluy captures the ‘real’ Kylie Jenner. Elegantly and simply styled by Monica Rose, the shoot showcases a side to Kylie that she herself admits in her interview is something “…that people don’t see” in her usual social media output or TV appearances.

In her interview, Kylie discusses her thoughts on ‘significant others’, the pressures of fame, how her public persona only shows one side to herself, her views on materialism versus spiritualism and how she deals with criticism of herself and her family.

FAULT: At just 17, you’re already one of the best known personalities in the media today – and one of the most followed on social media. Do you feel that people look up to you in that respect? Is there any pressure or obligation that comes with that, do you think?

Kylie: I never feel pressure to be a good role model. I always try to do my best to inspire people to be good and do the right thing, but I just can’t live my life always trying to be a good role model. I try to be the best I can be, but it’s hard sometimes. We’re all human. I just like to live each day and just be me and be real.

I definitely always feel pressure to act a certain way, but I try my best not to let it affect me – although there are times where I’m not totally myself because of that. Even at the mall I feel like I can’t totally be myself. When I’m not in public, I try to always be with my friends, so I can totally be myself and not have to worry about people judging or watching.

Is there a difference between the person you are on social media as opposed to the ‘real Kylie’, that is,the person you are when you’re with your friends and family?

People are going to judge you no matter what you do. So now I feel like I haven’t been open as much as I used to be. I haven’t really been letting my fans get to know me a lot; I closed down a little. I love to connect with people, but it became just a bigger door for people to judge me. I feel like, growing up, I haven’t had a lot of room for error – I don’t have room to make mistakes. You need to make mistakes to grow and learn, but I’m just a little different because the whole world is watching me, every single thing I do. So I closed my door a little, just until I get a bit older and then I’ll probably get back into it. On Instagram I’m like a different person almost, I just show people what I want people see.


So what are you like behind closed doors then? What really makes you happy?

I have to feel like I’m OK with everyone I love in my life. I never want to have bad beef with anybody. I always want everyone to be happy. Also balancing work life and personal life so I never lose myself. Lastly, I don’t think I need a significant other to be happy because I always like to find that for myself, but I think that it makes me a lot happier when I’m sharing my life with somebody.

On growing a thick skin:

“Being in my family, under scrutiny all the time… it affects the other people around me. My friends can get freaked out when they come into my world. It’s sad when you really think about it. There have been so many people that come into my family’s life that can’t handle it. And we handle a lot. The more people love you ,the more there’s going to be people who hate you. So I just feel like the girl who is an easy target to talk about. It’s definitely been crazy, but I feel like we all have trust that we’re in it together and we try to focus on the positive.”

On what people would be surprised to find out about her:

“There’s definitely a spiritual side to me and I honestly want the best for everyone. I’m not materialistic, I love clothes and all that stuff, but I don’t need it to live. I feel like, not that I’ve had everything, but once you feel you’ve had everything at a young age, you can either go down a path of being spoiled and self-centered, or you see it isn’t everything. I’ve found ways to really enjoy life. But people may get the wrong idea. Having a reality TV show, everyone feels like they know you, but that’s only 10% of my life. There’s a whole other side of me that people don’t see.”

Billy Lockett is picked as our latest FAULT Future Artist



What was your experience touring with Nina Nesbitt late last year like?

Really great. I’ve known Nina for about two and a half years, and back then we were really different people. It was exciting to play to some of those fans who were 14 back then, we’ve kind of grown up together in a way.


The industry has seen a real renaissance of the singer-songwriter genre in recent years, do you feel that it’s a type of music that fans really respond to?

Yeah definitely. Kids are really receptive and they love to be the first person to discover something new, that’s what I love.


The crowd responds to your live set with a real intensity and this is surely down to the passion you show whilst performing. Have you always been conscious of this interaction?

Not really. To be honest, until recently I would just mess around and get a bit drunk. Now it’s all at the piano, and I really want to get across all that I’m feeling- not in a self-indulgent way! But the live shows are the best thing about the job.


Is performing live something that has always come naturally?

I’ve spent years and years perfecting what I do on stage, with my manager constantly tweaking. Everything from the set order to the jokes I make and when I ask people to clap along; it’s very crafted. I’m a real perfectionist that way.


Has songwriting always been a natural process for you or was that also something you had to develop?

I always used to write alone but recently I’ve actually been working with a lot of co-writers, just because it’s a lot more fun. To be in the room and be able to bash ideas off each other. But I love writing- I’ve written about 6 or 7 songs just in the last week.


How was that transition from writing by yourself – and being an artist under the radar- to now having a following and all these collaborators?

It was where it had to go- you have to follow the path. You could be the best musician in the world but if you don’t have any fans you’re not really anything. I didn’t want to just be stuck in my bedroom. You have to see it like an actual job.


From what age did you know this was what you wanted?

When I was 16 I did a talent show at school. I was a bit of a loser- in fact, I wasn’t even a loser because I didn’t even have enough friends to be a loser I just didn’t really exist- and I’d never sang but I wrote a song for this talent show and I ended up winning it. Suddenly, I felt like I knew what I needed to do and from that day on, I got management and an indie label, radio support, tours … and now I’m here.


You make it sound easy but at your show at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill you thanked your Mum for standing by you. Has it been all that you’d hoped for?

It’s been a nightmare [laughs] There are so many times when you wait around, and so much worry, and you put so much into the music and sometimes it doesn’t click. And it’s not like other jobs- with music, you’re so aware of everyone who is doing better than you. They stand out on posters, on the radio, on the tube – everywhere you go! You have to stick to your sound and be confident that what you’re doing is right, and at some point the world will know. Nothing worth having is easy.


In a digital age, with such an over-saturation of artists and sounds and potential influences on your music, is it hard to ‘stick to your sound’?

It’s hard to find it! [laughs] You always find that you lean towards whatever is doing well at the moment. But you have to look for where you fit in the scene, and I’m confident that I do fit somewhere. You don’t want to be another Ed Sheeran, or another Tom Odell. I feel like I know my own space now.


One way you seem keen to differentiate yourself is with your visuals- your video for Old Man uses really striking animation. Is this something you’ve pushed for, or is it something that’s come from the team around you?

That’s pretty much all me. I like it to be real. A lot of people say it’s maybe too personal but that’s something I like. I love that my fans feel my songs tell them secrets about me. People really relate to it because it’s real and it’s honest. People want honesty from art.


As you get more famous, do you think that level of honesty is sustainable?

I hope I don’t change. I want to always be honest with my music but you make the music to be heard, so the more people hear it, the better. But when someone comes up to me and tells me my song about cancer helped them with a family member’s illness, that means so much more than 1,000 drunk people dancing to a catchy chorus. Though my manager sometimes wants the latter! [laughs]


What is your FAULT?

I worry too much. Constantly. I ring my manager every week and even when everything’s going great, I worry. It’s pointless but it’s just in my nature!

LFW February ’15, Day 4: The FAULT AW15 Daily Edit

The FAULT Magazine Editors have been busy catching the shows this season at London Fashion Week. We present here, our exclusive daily edit of the must-see London shows. Be sure to stay tuned to FAULT Online for exclusive backstage photography, daily updates and our daily show edit. To see the new season collections, with us, as they happen check out our official Instagram




Erdem is one of our go-to labels for opulent and luxurious British-inspired design. Always heavy on the craftsmanship with stunning details and unusual, intricate needlework, there’s always something to be found that resonates within FAULT’s aesthetic.

This season the 50’s were directly referenced within the set design and dresses made from brocade, ruched tweed, shiny silk and trimmed with oriental, floral fabric sashayed down the catwalk. Pieces of note were the caped dresses, the hardy winter coat deftly merging into a green silk evening coat and the exquisite cut-out lacework dresses in bold jewel-toned hues, instantly demanding to be made into a red carpet moment.

Patterned details on dresses were formed but with some distressed edging and loose, frayed seams, continuing well from the previous seasons influences. Overall an ‘undone’ but structured feel reigned the Erdem catwalk, less serious than last season yet still tailored, fitted and immaculate on presentation. Shapes were more on the modern side, with the pattern and the embroidery referencing the historic influences that Erdem favours and simple shapes allowing the embellishment to do most of the talking.

Christopher Kane


Sex was on the menu at Christopher Kane for AW, but not any type of sex, this season Kane gave us ‘Lovers’ Lace’. Inspired by the team’s recent life drawing classes. Sprawled and intertwined bodies were depicted across panels on dresses with zigzags and slashes of skin representing the ‘electricity’ of intertwined bodies and the frisson of a lovers liaison.

Colours were rich, dark, and luxurious with flashes of bright metallic colour and red lining on some pieces to loosen up the more structured styling of the suits, the pencil skirts and the more structured dresses.

Complicated, yet wearable and innovative, Christopher Kane gave us another season of all that we love about the designer, being able to surprise us, catch us off guard and yet remain of interest to both the buyers and the fashion press.

Peter Pilotto


Connect Four, Snakes and Ladders and Ludo were the fun board games that inspired this sophisticated Peter Pilotto AW15 collection, that was anything but childish. Slicked hair and orange eyeshadow walked the catwalk to video game infused house that, throughout, constantly reminded us of the inspiration for this collection. White, brown, green and blue were clashed with neon’s against black thigh slit midi skirts and high neck jumpsuits that really looked like a 90’s video game screen.

The final dress was everything a final dress should be, it pulled together the elements seen previously in the collection and added even more wow to an already incredible show. Halter-necked with a cut out triangle on the chest, pinched at the waist with a contrasting brown and an orange paint stripe across a full skirt; this piece was like a bonus life in the board game inspired show.

The clever play between colour, textiles and shape created a collection that once again proved that Peter Pilotto is one of the most stand out designers at London Fashion Week. The playful element to the collection was fun and spirited, showing the scope in appeal of this collection; we can envisage it on any woman and especially ourselves!

House of Holland


Henry Holland’s usual loud-and-proud designs were shown by stiffly stood models moved around the show by travellator, proving there’s always an element of fun to fashion at House of Holland.

Looking like they had just been churned out of a factory, boxy blouses and peasant-skirt dresses came in thick horizontal black and yellow ‘warning’ stripes with exposed stitching. Shaggy fur coats reaching down to the knee also sported chevron stripes in red, white and blue. Tartan, gingham and check also made a vibrant entrance on pyjama trousers, peplum hem tops and wrap-over dresses and coats with jagged hemlines.

The silhouette was generally loose and unfinished with a few pieces that pulled in tight at the waist with black PVC waistbands for contrast effect. Rather ‘proper’ neckerchiefs were a surprising accessory choice but the flat, black patent ankle boots were a great way to make the look modern and relaxed.

House of Holland will certainly brighten up your AW15 with some high voltage colour and print.

Faustine Steinmetz


While Faustine Steinmetz are a relatively new brand, they’ve created a lot of buzz from specialising as a label from the very start.
In creating their collections using only one fabric – denim, Faustine have quickly become trendsetters within the industry by offering up something completely fresh and unique from other current British designers.  The label has managed to rise up the ranks quickly thanks to their innovative technique, approach, designs and ethos and are now becoming a go-to cult label for UK fashion editors, myself included.

Treating the everyday denim garment with their special handmade techniques, this season took a step further towards defining the ‘Faustine Steinmetz’ look. Featuring hand painting onto fabric, frayed edges, delicate details and oversized shapes, the aesthetic is strong yet understated. The models posed casually, styled with sleek pared-back hair and clean skin to reinforce the overall beautiful simplicity of the brand.

Faustine focuses on sustainability and responsible sourcing, creating one of a kind pieces to be loved and worn forever versus current fast, seasonal and adrenalin-induced fashion. Perhaps their popularity reflects the change that fashion is desperately seeking, is it time for more calm, socially responsible fashion labels? Only time will tell but my feeling is a resounding yes.

-Rachel Holland


 J.W Anderson


J.W Anderson’s show marked a real departure for the designer, from a restrained, 70s-infused, quasi-androgynous aesthetic, to a collection that spoke of 80s luxe, with all its maximalist merging of colour, print and textile. Anderson’s silhouettes, so often used to elongate limbs and manipulate the body in  a way that speakers more of abstract shape, instead clung to hips and waists, with a feminine silhouette, cinched in jewel-coloured velvet and paired with knee-high boots. This is not to say that Anderson has lost his quirky cool by any means; if anything, this was one of his strongest collections yet, with a complex smorgasbord of prints and textiles layered in a way that spoke to his curatorial sensibilities. His attention to detail and colour theory is well-established, and it was interesting to watch it play out on a more complex, grander scale than usual.

Will Ballentyne-Reid


Emilia Wickstead


Cocoon shaped sleeves and a pinched waist were on the menu for Emilia Wickstead’s Autumn/Winter 15 collection. A colour palette, which began with nude and pastel blue tones, decorated the midi length dresses and boucle trousers that created nostalgia of a more retro era. Wickstead moved away from the a-line shapes of last season and instead created pretty drapes and full peplums that exuded the natural style that she is known for.

Mid-way through, the show took an adventurous turn with burnt orange check covering dresses in all lengths and a pair of culottes that we think will be on everyone’s Autumn/Winter 15 wish-list. The stand out piece of the collection was, by far, the interjection of black PVC, with a full length dress that added confidence and attitude making the collection stand out amongst the rest this season.

Emilia Wickstead introduced elegance and glamour to the London Shows for Autumn/Winter 15 with a collection was one of our favourites from the designer. With styles that took a new and daring direction, we already cannot wait for the Spring/Summer collection.

Joe Bates, Sid Bryan and Cozette McCreery offered one crazy show at London Fashion Week! The collective created a Betsey Johnson-like world where models wore tousled black wigs, mesh stockings and shiny socks in strappy heels. Very long scarves accessorized most of the looks while collar pins bejeweled necklines. Blazers, sweaters, dresses and turtlenecks were all part of the knitwear dominated collection in shades of pink, black and orange. A fabric similar to latex hugged the body in a very form fitting way and gave a certain edge to the runway show, along with accents of fur and pink handwriting.

Julien Macdonald


Julien Macdonald redefined the meaning of goth with this gloomy collection. Hair slicked back, dark berry lips, choker necklaces, long gloves and knee-high socks created an austere look for fall. Black was obviously predominant, but other colors – such as purple, green, blue and silver – underlined details throughout the collection. Thin belts accentuated the waist of many dresses whereas zippers at the center of a piece would reveal another layer underneath. Other gothic elements included mesh, lace and embroidery mimicking Victorian crinolines.

Holly Fulton


Shot exclusively for FAULT Magazine by Nigel Pacquette


Holly Fulton‘s show was a send-up of retro ideals- Vogue spreads from the late 60s and 70s with fringed models in swirling prints and synthetic materials, mixed with a Valley of the Dolls vibe; lace and pastel shades, prim collars and scalloped hemlines just above the knee. When it was strong (which was for the majority of the show), the effect was blissfully eccentric- a Wes Anderson-directed Stepford Wives, intelligent, beautiful and intricately complex. When the embellishments, appliqué and other details were removed, the shapes and colours often became overly bland, losing their modernity and charm. But overall, this was a beautifully rendered collection with a strong undercurrent in femininity, unexpected tailoring, and stunningly subtle Surrealist prints.

Will Ballentyne-Reid


Lucas Nascimento


The AW15 collection of Brazilian-born Lucas Nascimento seemed to be inspired by a warmer destination far from his London home. Bold prints of exotic flowers and dresses with thin straps exuded warmth and sunshine. Knitwear being his specialty, Nascimento created once again finely crafted knits taking the shape of sweaters, dresses and even jumpsuits. V-necks with contrasting colors became the norm as the show went on, varying from purple to black, olive green, orange and blue. Nascimento also added texture to his collection by using a funky material enhanced with rows of lurex threads or placing a layer of mesh upon a colorful fabric.

Elisabeth Labelle


Markus Lupfer


Photographed exclusively for FAULT Magazine by Vic Lentaigne


The theme for Markus Lupfer’s AW15 collection is ‘a walk in a secret garden’ which took us a while to clock on to because we were momentarily distracted by the adorable white rabbits hanging in glass bowls as we entered the presentation.

All became clear as models, posing between spindly branches, wild flowers and wooden swings, showed off sporty dresses with muted, Hawaiian-style flower prints and laser-cut floral designs in khaki that looked like an army camouflage net. Accessorised with cosy beanie hats, glittery trainers and daisy-shapes sunglasses from the Markus Lupfer for Linda Farrow line.

Bomber jackets, parker coats and roll neck jumpers made for practical outerwear for keeping warm while mirrored embellishments on sweaters added a sprinkling of magic to further the ideas of enchanted forests and fairytale woodlands. A holographic jacquard fabric also features gnomes, fawns and squirrels entwined in the design.

We can certainly get on board with a collection that’s comfortable and looks cool… and one where we get to stroke rabbits at the show.

- Olivia Pinnock 


Gareth Pugh


Gareth Pugh presented a theatrical AW15 collection seemingly inspired by the Elizabethan era. Modern metallic ruffs, vests structured like armors and ample skirts hitting the ground channeled this austere look. If the army of models wore chains and leather knee-high boots, the red cross painted on their face became the quintessential element to this fashion Inquisition.
