The Fall 2017 fashion trend is vintage vibes and comfort. Bold Red, textured velvet, lovely prints and plaids. Carmen Orford, designer of Laura Vivian LA www.lauravivianla.com brings to life the “Vada Collection.” Carmen states, “As a designer, I’m inspired by everything from nature and shoot locations to the fabrics and trims I work with. I like to draw from a mix of the 1970’s as well as modern trends.”
I prepped the models in my studio. For Regina’s makeup, I love using Nudestix, Magnetic Eye Color Pencil–Night, around her eyes. Then, I went over the pencil with an eyeshadow from Hudabeauty called Black Truffle, to set the color in and soften the edges from the pencil. For her hairstyle, a relaxed braid.
For Julia’s makeup, I used warm tones to make her blue-green eyes pop. The eyeshadow colors were Henna, Coco and Trustfund—with a hint of Angelic, from the Rose Gold Color Palette by Hudabeauty. A few days before the shoot, I used a balayage (hair painting) and foil method to lighten and add depth to Julia’s hair. Then, I cut in long layers to give it more shape. For her first look, I curled her hair with a 1 1/4”-barrel, curling iron by Hot Tools. Then I slightly teased the top of her hair to go with her 70’s outfit. Later on during the shoot, I gave her a loose, top knot and pinned it in place.
Our fabulous shoot location was at SoKa University in Aliso Viejo, California. The Models looked stunning wearing the “Vada Collection.”
Regina said, “Laura Vivian LA’s clothes are form fitting and the use of stretchy fabric makes the them so easy to wear and very comfortable.”
Julia says, “I love modeling the Vada Collection! Each outfit has such a unique and amazing pattern. I want to keep all of them!”
Laura Vivian LA designs are colorful, comfy and sexy. Dolls, show off your curves in the “Vada Collection.”
