We snuck behind the scenes to find out how one of London's hottest shoe designers used Disney's Frozen to inspire her latest collection
Ah Frozen – the story of two sisters fighting to overcome a magic curse, defeat an evil prince, and break free from the ghosts of their past, all while cavorting through snow with a trusty snowman by their side – it’s girl-power with an icy twist, and frankly, what’s not to love?
And it seems we’re not the only die-hard Frozen fans out there. Sophia Webster, shoe-designer extraordinaire and all-round Fashion queen, talked exclusively to Marie Claire about how her daughter inspired her to create her AW17 I Scream for Ice Queens collection with Elsa and co. in mind.
Speaking to Marie Claire backstage, Sophia Webster said: ‘The collection is inspired by Frozen, because I have a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, so Elsa was the main inspiration. And Harbin ice-festival in China which is a life-size iced village that they build every year. They light it up at night – it’s like a magical, colourful ice kingdom. And the main square there is called Sophia square – so it’s destined to be!’
Terry Barber, Director of Make-up Artistry at MAC, spoke about creating just the right ice-queen look for the show: ‘We’re doing a very cold flush on the skin – quite a big blush from the eye down to the jaw line with a raw, cold pink. And we’re rubbing the blush onto the lips as well – the look is all about tweaking the temperature on the face. It should come out extremely raw and extremely cold.’
With those sparkling shoes, rose lips, ice and fairy lights – they truly succeeded in creating a winter wonderland at the heart of London Fashion Week
