July Snow “Avant Garde”

Avant Garde Make-up by Tommy Chiang

Weird things happen… yes, there were real hails happening in Vancouver, Canada in July 2011; but there was also a bit of July Snow action happening at “Avant Garde” in Yaletown…. with my avant garde make-up artistry work with a talented team!

I had a pleasure to work with a team of fashion industry professional: photographer Albert Normandin, multiple award-winning hair stylist: Jon Paul Holt (Avant Garde Hair Salon), international model: Charity Plamondon, stylist: Myles Laphen, on this super creative photoshoot.

If you were wondering, yes, this make-up look is definitely not your everyday beauty make-up, not your classic wedding make-up… it is a lot more dramatic than that. This look is slightly inspired by Dior’s Haute Couture, but most of the make-up design was decided on the morning when I arrive on the prepping location, and I did the make-up by freehand with the available make-up products I had at the time.

Although the make-up is a very dramatic one, but the hair design and the whole styling played an important effect to make the whole work together. Jon Paul Holt did an amazing job with his hair piece design, in terms of his layering, colour choice, and the composition of pieces. He is a master in this, not to mention the rest of the team members did an awesome job on their part of the production. And special thanks to fellow make-up artist: Allison who did a great job on the other two models in the shoot!

So when is my time to do backstage make-up at the major Fashion Week Shows for International Collections or Haute Couture (New York Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, or Paris Fashion Week)?

Help me getting in there if you know anyone please! I think I need to do some real make-up work outside of Vancouver, don’t you think?
