We celebrated the FAULT Magazine 10 year anniversary in style with the likes of Rizzle Kicks’ Jordan Stephens, Rae Morris, Felicity Hayward, GIRLI, Dakota Blue Richards, Jonny Nelson and Sascha & Mimi Bailey at UNIT London gallery last week.

While the BULLDOG Gin sponsored bar served their signature gin & tonics (with a slice of crisp grapefruit on the rim) downstairs, guests enjoyed an exhibition of some of our favourite-ever FAULT shoots with the likes of Kylie Jenner, Usher, Ellie Goulding, Ben Barnes, Big Sean, Nick Jonas and Gary Numan. Well, we hope they enjoyed them, anyway!

Pride of place, of course, was our latest cover with Liam Gallagher. Shot by Jack Alexander, the front cover for FAULT 27: the Best of British Issue was the focal point for our showcase event that was catered exclusively by stupendous fro-yo trailblazers Snog and their brilliant new brand, Beltane & Pop.

The official ‘FAULT Magazine 10 year anniversary afterparty’ took place at Mahiki Mayfair…we think. To be honest, we weren’t quite sure where we were once our private section started overflowing with bottles of vodka and Mahiki’s trademark treasure chests!

FAULT go backstage with Arcade Fire at BST Festival in London’s Hyde Park

Arcade Fire performing at BST Festival in Hyde Park

Arcade Fire seem to be on yet another a roll of success – especially after their recent headline performance at Glastonbury – and so the excitement for London’s Hyde Park to be hosting their BST (British Summer Time) gig was incredible! Sadly we arrived too late to catch Wild Beasts‘ show, although we did manage to catch the end of Jake Bugg’s set. Bugg’s enticing, grainy vocals were a perfect complement the setting sun over the London skyline.

Backstage during Arcade Fire’s set

The atmosphere was great – as you might expect in a country where celebrations of sunny days are all too few and far between – and the crowd was in high spirits throughout.. Despite the hype, the event undersold by two thirds. Many of those who made it, however, were thrilled to take advantage of a booking glitch that saw hundreds of tickets sold for as little as £2 each!

We hung out backstage before Arcade Fire’s set and mingled with their entourage of drag queens – who, of course, looked as glamorous in person as they did on-screen at Glastonbury.

Arcade Fire’s Drag Queens. Hey Louie [Banks; far right]!

The band grouped together on the ramps at the rear of the main stage, all glistening in metallics, sequins and printed ensembles, before they each walked out onto the stage in front of the roaring crowd. It was one of those rare moments you get to feel that sort of response for yourself as we walked on behind them to stand at the side of the stage. The energy the audience gives is unbelievable – intimate and intimidating all at the same time. Their set was truly beautiful- playing huge hits, all tied together with romantic visual backdrops. The show was filled with colour and boasted love throughout.

‘The Face’: FAULT Exclusive fashion film to accompany Issue 16’s ‘Decades’ editorial

‘The Face’ is a trio of fashion short films designed to explore the uncertainty within one’s sense of self in a contemporary consumerist society.  Each short presents ‘Faces’ of the past, with specific reference to the 1960s, 70s and 80s, to demonstrate how fashion often harks back to bygone ‘Decades’ in an effort to attain an element of stability and clear identity through hindsight.

The tension and unease which eventually comes through in each short is meant to reflect the ever-present uncertainty within our individual and societal identities in the face of our rapidly evolving environment. The individual identity clashes with that of the era; the ego goes against the epitome; the personal against the group. Even in our most mundane moments, that conflict can rise to the surface…

 ‘Decades‘, the corresponding fashion editorial shot by Louie Banks, can be seen in full in FAULT Issue 16. ‘The Face’ was directed by Jacob Harmer, with styling and creative direction by Sophie Gaten.

Ellie Goulding – Style cover star for FAULT Issue 15

ellie goulding - FAULT 15 Style section cover

Ellie Goulding was shot by Louie Banks at London’s Lounge Lover and Les Trois Garçons for FAULT Issue 15′s Style section cover. Styling by Harriet Charity Verney.

Ellie Goulding’s debut album, Lights (2010), established her as one of the most talented pop stars of her generation, and her recent follow up, Halcyon (2012), secured her position in the spotlight. Surrounded by Philip Treacy hats on our shoot at a swanky East London lounge, it’s fair to say that Miss Goulding has come a long way from the small, rural English country village of Lyonshall where she grew up. Ellie’s unique and spirited voice has earned her numerous awards and thousands of fans
across the globe—fans who she praises and respects as the reason for her success. She spoke to FAULT about her journey to stardom, the downside of fame and where she’s heading next.

FAULT: How have you dealt with fame?
Ellie: Not very well. I’ve experienced different levels of fame. People knowing too many things about me freaks me out. What gets me most is people believing things that aren’t true and people always having something to say about you. Gossip is incredibly powerful.
FAULT Magazine Issue 15 - Ellie Goulding (1)
You’re known for keeping in close touch with your fans. Why do you think that is important?
It’s important to acknowledge the people who have kept you where you are. Believe it or not, it’s easy to forget that it’s all down to them. Fans are the most important thing in the world, and you should never underestimate them.

How would you describe your style?

I wear a lot of black and monochrom[atic] stuff. I’m not good with colours. I was a bit of a grunger as a kid, but I also like wearing really beautiful white dresses and pearl earrings. One minute I’ll be wearing a scary anatomical hat, head-to-toe black with Doc Martins and a big chain, and the next, I’ll have a flowery dress on. My style is quite bipolar!

Daisy Lowe: Behind the Scenes for FAULT Issue 14

Music: ‘Slow Burning Bliss’ by Dead Times

From Vogue to Playboy and from Chanel to Agent Provocateur, it seems that there isn’t a magazine cover or fashion campaign in the world that has not, at one time or another, featured the remarkable Daisy Lowe. She is, arguably, as close to a genuine supermodel as this decade has ever truly known. Up until now, at least, with Cara Delevigne currently enjoying the fickle focus of the fashion world.  Daisy’s enduring popularity, however, makes the majority of today’s ‘bright young things’ seem as transient as sunshine during a British Spring. Still only 24, the plain-spoken North Londoner can already boast a CV to match the best there has ever been. What’s more, she can still claim to be at the very top of her game, as recent work for the likes of Stephen Webster and Tommy Hilfiger attests.

FAULT: What has been your favourite experience so far?

Daisy: Working with Pat McGrath for the first time was an amazing milestone, as was shooting Italian Vogue with Steven Klein. He is such a genius with a complete heart of gold. I was 17 when I first started shooting with him and he really made me feel very comfortable in my own skin and celebrated my curves.

Walking for Vivienne Westwood for the first time was massive too. It was her first show back in London after years of being in Paris. She walked in when they were doing the makeup and just went, “What’s going on here? They need to look more, more, more something” , and then just said, “Can I take your pallet?” to this poor little assistant and just grabbed it, dug her hands into it and came over to me and put it all over my face!

You often speak about having a healthy body image. What would be your key piece of advice to people struggling with this?

I think a healthy body image is really important. It’s really difficult because there’s so much pressure to be really skinny. My advice to young girls would always be this: if, when you look in the mirror, you can’t see anything you like, make yourself [like it]. Make yourself self-love. That’s the only way you can actually be happy. I had to start very small going, ‘Well, I quite like my feet’, and then everyday I had to find something else. Women are extraordinary creatures, and everyone should be celebrated for who they are.
