Anya Hindmarch

sibling86-Recovered286

Imagination and creativity are never in shortage at Anya Hindmarch and this season was no exception. Speeding down the M25 catwalk came models printed in signs we all know but perhaps never thought could be so fashionable. Due to the vast amount of time spent, by Anya Hindmarch, on the M25 she decided to find the motorways beauty and use it as the inspiration for her collection.

Snakeprint leather bags with roadworks warnings, fur scarves with no entry signs, long length bomber jackets with speed camera logos; the muse behind the collection was immanent in every look. After last season’s use of familiar household logos and items it was hard to imagine how Hindmarchwould be able overtake this, but she did it in the fast lane. With accessories and ready-to-wear that is so artistic and inspired, Anya Hindmarch brought London Fashion Week to a stand still.

I just wanted to thank you and the whole of the Fault team for having me on board this season, it has been a pleasure and I hope that you have been pleased with my efforts. If there is ever anyway that I can be involved with the magazine please let me know.

Ashish

sibling86-Recovered286

Sequined street walkers took to the catwalk at Ashish on the final day of London Fashion Week. Provocatively clad in thigh-high red hooker heels with trashy dyed fringe jobs and hooped earrings, these girls were working the runway just as hard.

Sequined camisoles and knickerbocker shorts with laced edges brushed loosely across the models’ skin and spaghetti straps dropped off the shoulder. Lace bralets peeped out from bomber jackets made up of a patchwork of different animal print fur. Sequin camouflage cropped joggers were trimmed with fur and tie dye denim was dotted with studs. Sexy, trashy and oh so cool.

The inspiration for the show was a quote from Jane Fonda’s character in Klute, New York prostitute Bree Daniels: “You know there’s nothing wrong, nothing… nothing is wrong. I think the only way that any of us can ever be happy is to let it all hang out… you know… do it all, and fuck it.”

Emilio de la Morena

sibling86-Recovered286

Watching the Emilio de la Morena AW15 show was like playing ‘spot the red carpet dress’ mixing up some of my all time favourite fabrics, styles and colour combinations. The womanly and sensual floor length dresses oozed sex appeal, with slashes to the thigh and cut just-so to fit the body perfectly. Complicated structures formed around the body to create a simple shape, but with intricate panelling and detailing. Sheer cut-out panels played with bare skin and concealment, offering just the right amount of flesh on show to still be sophisticated. A-Symetry was played with, so some shoulders were on display on one side and on the other, the entire arm would be wrapped in fabric. This heavy play on ‘show and tell’ was utterly desirable, flattering and appealing to most women who want to look modern and sexy. Think Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie.

Colours were deep, dark, glistening and dazzled against the dark background of the blackened out catwalk set. The metallics sizzled and dark, rich blues and crimson smouldered. Subtle and elegant, Emilio de la Morena presented covetable glamour this season.

Let’s start by talking about your musical background: your influences, your career beginnings, and how you started out.

Were you always a natural performer?

Yes I’ve loved music since I was about 7 years old and I was in the church with my Grama singing. I remember doing my first performance- I was a little nervous but it was fun. After I got off the stage, I wanted to do more.

 

Is the live performance something that is really important to you, or do you prefer the studio?

Well I prefer both because I have to get in the studio to make music and then get on stage to perform. I will say that every time I perform for my fans it’s like a connection; we connect in a very strong way.

 

How did growing up in Tampa shape your music – you’ve talked about the violence and aggression of growing up there, do you see that mirrored in the ferocity of your music?

Yes, growing up in Tampa was very rough- especially where I grew up. It seemed like it was so hard to find a way out. People used to always say I would be pregnant at the age of 15, even though I wasn’t even having sex then. It was very tough but I put all that into my music.

Your song ‘Motherquake’ is on the Kick Ass 2 soundtrack – does film have a big influence on your music? If so, what films inspire you?

I know, I was so excited when I found out my track was included. I love that movie!


In regards to film and music videos, how do you go about shaping the visuals that accompany your music?

I just go along with the flow!


What do you want to say with your music videos?

I like to tell a story in my music videos, in the same way I’m doing it in my music. I want to describe it in my song, and show the action in my video.

Speaking of visuals, you have a really eye-catching look and have modelled for American Vogue alongside Cara Delevingne. Is fashion really important to your music?

No not really!


Female rappers seem to be having a real moment – from Nicki  and Iggy, to Azealia Banks and Angel Haze. Is there a pressure or expectation that comes with being a female rapper in 2014?

Yes you get a lot of hate and people are always comparing you to other female rappers. Female rappers like to beef- it’s nothing new.

How would you best describe the difference between you and these other rappers?

I’m very Unique. I have a different look, sound, taste etc. I stand out.

What’s coming up for Dominique Young Unique in 2015?

I will be dropping my new single and also working on my new album. I’m looking forward to signing a record deal after I got released from SonyUK and I’m also touring again!

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.]
