NZFW 2012: Phoenix Cosmetics

Sunday, September 16, 2012

As a child of the 80's I was particularly excited to learn that Phoenix Cosmetics NZFW show was going to feature one of my favourite cartoons ever 'Jem and the Holograms' and the show certainly didn't disappoint.  Referencing every little girl's favourite moments from the 80's from Flashdance to My Little Pony there were so many moments that were an absolute delight to see on the runway.

Phoenix's team worked incredibly hard to put together some of the most astonishing and intricate makeup looks I've ever seen in person.  From studded faces to a model whose head was made up like a mirror ball and all sorts of other body art, the show was a visual and colourful treat from start to finish.  With huge amounts of energy and so much joy, the models and performers danced down the runway clearly enjoying themselves and bringing the crowd along for the ride.

After going through all that was amazing about the 80's from a girl's perspective, it was time for Jem and the Holograms to grace the runway which is something I never thought I would see, but was just like a little girl's dream come true.  The performers were brilliant and thoroughly entertaining, I did actually feel like I was watching the cartoon come to life which was pretty amazing!  Phoenix's shows are always fantastic but that was absolutely the best one yet.
