Modern Geisha

Recently I competed in the Face of October competition. There was 2 challenges for the semi-finals, and then 2 for the finals. This is the first challenge: [“We are all Geishas.” We want you to style a contemporary outfit inspired by Geishas. A Traditional Geisha figure will make you fail. You can check 2013 Etro Spring Collection or 2013 Pucci Spring Collection to see what we want.]

My take on this borrowed from several elements: contemporary japanese style with the jacket, shoes and pants, kawaii with the bag, and kabuki theatre with the make-up.

Highlighting the geisha inspired jacket over slim black pants.

LpD's Kabuki style make-up with the oriental feel of the Glam Affair headpiece.

The Kawaii inspired bag, and glossy red/black heels with a flower highlight complete the look.
