Duodesigners Daniela and Annette Felder may be identical twins, but you won’t bumpinto your ‘twin’ wearing one of their designs.The designers had their models strut down the catwalk in goat’s hair sewn on piecesof garments.Hand-dyed in rich deep colours and attached to shoulders or bangles, a nice way toadd some glamour.The most refreshing colour seen in this collection has got to be midnight blue. It wasseen on the garments as well as the models lips, an eye-catching colour whichalmost distracted me from the clothes.Luckily it wasn’t for long thanks to the mix of graphic prints that came down therunway. In swirls of light pink and black on flowing silk dresses, you could see thatthe designers wanted to bring out the feminine side of the Felder Felder women.Although, seeing those prints on flowing fabrics gave me a sense of déjà vu. It was infact, a similar style to another brand that showcased their collection on the sameday at London fashion week - Aminaka Wilmont. Looks like, designers are taking aliking with this style.However, the new idea this season for the Felder sisters was that floral crystal-embroidery, which was seen on most of the dresses. The crystals were stitched on tocreate the petals of a sunflower.Elsewhere, trousers were skinny and tight, while skirts were in A-line shapes, someof which were in silver leather. That’s correct; I did say this collection is only for thebrave!With the show itself I did find something slightly bizarre, a few models didn’t walkall the way down to the end of the catwalk, but instead they walked halfway then Forum House | Stirling Road | Chichester | PO19 7DN

But, is thisreally the case or is it just another marketing slogan?We have heard all kinds of slogans before; long lasting, smudge proof, ten timesmore volume. But how many actually live up to their promises? The last thing wewant is to look like the joker from Batman. Could Revlon’s ultimate liquid lipstickbe the answer?First the packaging, when you first clasp your eyes on the rectangular shaped see-through bottle, you can’t help but become attracted. It looks so classy and is verysimilar to Victoria Secret’s lipgloss from their VS Makeup range.Next it’s the product itself, you will notice that you get a lot of liquid on theapplicator upon opening as it hasn’t got a built-in excess wiper. So this willeventually leave you with liquid all around the entrance.However, it does live up to its promises. The lipstick is food-proof, doesn’t fade, notouch-ups required, and lasts up to 12 hours…could be longer than that but I needmy beauty sleep!In fact, I should add another one – water resistant. I tried to remove it with waterbut it wouldn’t budge. Yet, it glides off easily with oil-based make-up remover.This colorstay technology is incredibly clever. I left my mark on a good few emptycups of coffee, yet my lips were still bright as a red tomato. I could’ve easily gottenaway with the simple “they’re not mine”, just so I didn’t need to wash up!Overall, the claims aren’t just marketing slogans for this product. The lipstick goeson moist then dries in a few moments. The negative thing I would say is, themoment it dries that’s it, no turning back! So this means well prepped lips are Forum House | Stirling Road | Chichester | PO19 7DN
