Liz chose to set up her own label to give her the freedom to express her individual creativity. Her designs exude a minimal and elegant aesthetic with the focus being on wearable statement pieces with a timeless appeal, emphasising chic and impeccably tailored structures that complement the feminine silhouette.
For the designer`s AW14 collection, surrealist painter Salvador Dali was the muse so there was a bountiful array of minimalistic outfits with hints of eccentric detailing such as the bold lips featured as the hem of a dress. To compliment these intriguing looks, founder of Face Lace Phyllis Cohen designed beautiful ready-to-flaunt makeup looks which added to the surreal theme of the presentation.
Liz Black said:
`Phyllis and I had an instant connection. When I first mentioned Dali I could see sparkles in her eyes. We couldn`t have understood each other any better.â€
As well as Dali moustaches and lips, Phyllis created Face Lace bejewelled eyes and red lips with pearl teeth which the models incorporated into their performance. These dramatic effects made for real show-stopping and inspiring beauty looks! The show was sponsored by The Body Shop and Phyllis teamed up with the brand`s makeup artist Lan Nguyen who gave the intricate Face Lace designs a pop of bright colour.
Face Lace founder Phyllis Cohen commented:
`The muse for Liz`s collection is Salvador Dali, and I created a bespoke collection of Dali inspired Face Lace for the show. It has been such fun to work on and as I have an MA from Goldsmith`s college it`s been a great opportunity to use my fine art knowledge. I`ve created mobile Face Lace performance pieces. Lobster eye-lashes and bejewelled ants were dotted all over the models.â€
