Welcome to our biggest issue yet! We’ve got 104 pages
of fashion, beauty and amazing visuals prepared for you
this time, available 24/7 on your computer, tablet or
mobile phone wherever you are.
Besides the usual fashion and beauty news, we’ve
prepared a rundown of womenswear and menswear
trends in this issue including shopping suggestions, so
that you don’t have to research yourself and could shop
directly from the issue. I personally love Fall because
of how versatile you can be with your style, and who
doesn’t love layering?
Also I wanted to include some features that could be
really helpful to a lot of people and hopefully answer
some questions. We’ve teamed up with John Lewis
Liverpool in order to find that one perfect pair of jeans
for any body type (p52). I was really interested to see
the results. I’m sure you will be too!
Our beauty guru Lucy gives you some great advice
about fillers in this issue. She actually went and got them
done at The White Rooms clinic here in Liverpool and
told the whole story in detail in p77. If you ever thought
about getting facial injections, I’m sure you will find this
feature really interesting and helpful.
If you love fashion and beauty photography as much
as I do, we have plenty of it in this issue. I’m really
excited that we are featuring photography work from
all over the world, literally: Spain, Mexico, Bosnia and
Herzegovina, United Kingdom, and we also regularly
feature editorials on our website.
I want to thank everyone involved in creating this issue
and our rapidly growing following on social media. We
love you and wouldn’t exist without you!

Warehouse rounds up the new season with
a nod to the Sixties mixed with a Brit mod
feel seen in key pieces, such as a mustard
patent leather A-line dress, worn with a
‘Warehouse’ logo monogrammed roll neck
that also appears as a jacquard zip up
jacket and tailored culottes combo. Different
variations of check are updated in a bomber
hooded jacket and wide trousers or as a
sharp wool trench coat worn with a dusty
lilac silk blouse, bringing a quintessential
British allure to the outfits.
Taking the urban as its palette for Autumn / Winter 2016,
Warehouse presents its first style concepts for the season under
the Design Direction of Emma Cook focusing on bespoke prints,
layered textures and contemporary silhouettes to inspire the
new Warehouse woman in her city.
Reinterpreting the foundations of style classics, Warehouse’s new
collection introduces a polished eccentricity with a unique take
on vintage inspired prints and fabrications. These come alive as
woodland jacquard prints on bonded oversized coats, cropped
jackets and wide leg trousers, worn with knits or over loose
tailoring in shades of toffee and butterscotch. Considered clashes
also appear in a baby pink soft shearling coat and jersey sweater
teamed with a zebra print, seen in an oversize wrap skirt or
trousers reinforcing the collection’s attitude.
Warehouse Autumn / Winter 2016 collection
will be available in store and online at
WAREHOUSE.CO.UK from September 2016.
Following on is a Modern Bohemia story, inspired by the freespirit
of the city, highlights include painted florals on fluid navy
silhouettes such as an asymmetric evening dress, shirting and
loose trousers matched with silk tie-dye, luxe tees, joggers and
tunics. The collection also introduces a new take on fashion denim
with hero pieces such as a side split wide legged trouser teamed
with a cropped jacket with removable shearling collar adding
a contemporary edge to the collection.

PLÙS QUE MA VÌE
WORDS: Jurga Skeiryte
Plùs Que Ma Vìe is an Italian menswear fashion brand founded by Andrea
Lazzari in 2013. After an internship in the fashion industry, Andrea presented
his graduate collection at St. Petersburg fashion week, which led to creating
his own brand. We talk to Andrea about the beginnings of Plùs Que Ma
Vìe, his ideal client and future plans.
WHAT DID IT TAKE TO GET IT STARTED?
At the beginning it was important to understand how the
fashion business works. I was also aware that I am entering
a saturated market in a difficult social and economic period.
However, the most important thing for me was believing
in my own abilities and a strong need to express my ideals
and my own style. It was a risk I took trying to satisfy my
ambitions and fulfil my dreams.
THE MEANING OF PLÙS QUE MA VÌE
I remember lying in bed at night and trying to come up with
a brand name and the meaning behind it. Plùs Que Ma Vìe
means more than my life. I want people who wear my designs
to go beyond the normal and expected, beyond the formal.
My ideal client is a man who is not afraid to express his
opinions and wishes at work and in everyday life. A confident
man with a strong personality. He likes to invest in clothing
because that thrills him.
One of my goals is to see famous people wearing my brand.
If I had to choose celebrities from the music industry I would
choose hip hop artists like Tyler, The Creator, ASAP Rocky,
Big Sean. I also think Ezra Miller, Johnny Depp would look
great wearing Plùs Que Ma Vìe and maybe Jared Leto.
SHOP PLÙS QUE MA VÌE
My collections are available in selected stores all around the
world, but mostly in Italy, China and Russia. For the best prices
visit our e-commerce site (www.plusquemavie.bigcartel.com).
Currently we are looking for foreign investors to expand
globally as well as to launch a womenswear line in the near
future. Additionally, we are planning to open a flagship store
and set up a proper marketing and sales strategy for the major
world markets, expanding the possibilities of collaborations
with other brands and sectors.

Kurtis Paul is a men’s fashion
brand specialising in high quality
bags and accessories. Founded
in 2015 by two brothers from
Manchester, Kurtis Paul is aimed
at the modern gentlemen.
Before starting their own brand, Kurtis and Lloyd
Rayner were both working in the corporate world.
However, they felt too restricted and wanted
an opportunity to express their creativity. The
brothers showed great interest in bags, especially
in those made from leather and canvas, because
of their versatility and their power to influence the
emotion of the wearer. Kurtis and Lloyd believe
that the right bag can completely transform an
outfit and give the owner a sense of pride.
One of the great things about Kurtis Paul is their
eagerness to inject their designs with personality
and make each bag unique. Alfred, Sherlock,
Cromwell and Darwin are the names of the leather
bags from the collection which was launched over
two months ago. The canvas collection is due to
launch very soon. It will contain three styles of
bags, simple in design and available in two stunning
colours (more details upon launch).
Kurtis Paul dreams big and dares to be different.
It’s a brand with two main values - great design
and high quality materials. It’s not the goal of this
family business to compete with the high street. For
them it is about creating fashionable bags, which
last the test of time.

WOOD TIME FASHION
Wilson See is a 28-year-old entrepreneur from Hong
Kong, now living in Germany. After the 1st year of
studying Business Administration and Computer
Science in the University of Hong Kong Wilson started
his first company, which helped other entrepreneurs
with creating their webpages. That is how startups
became one of the major interests of Wilson See.
Wilson was certain that in order to run a successful
startup, you must possess experience, money and a
network. He worked in a teaching centre, a Grouponlike
company in Hong Kong and also opened a bakery
school trying to gain experience, raise money and
create a network of contacts. Finally having the key
components of a successful startup allowed him to
fulfil another lifelong dream. In 2014 he established a
watch-selling brand Wood Time Fashion.
Wilson See is creating watches that not only tell time,
but also remind people of how precious time is and
the importance of it in our lives. Made out of wood,
the watches are simple and modern, suitable for any
occasion. Wilson is a firm believer that education is
the key to improving lives of the poor. That is why
a part of the profits of his company goes towards
providing learning materials for children in Africa,
Cambodia and Korea.
Shop at WOODTIMEFASHION.COM. Prices from £102.
The vision of Wood Time Fashion is to use upcycled
and sustainable materials to make high quality fashion
products. All of the wood used to make watches
is already from FSC certified farms and forests.
Nonetheless, the company is also focusing on the
designs of the products so as not to use the label
sustainable fashion as a selling point. The goal is to
create chic and high quality watches which can be
used to spread the idea of social fashion as well. If
everything goes as planned, soon we will see new
watches with even more innovative materials as well
as expansion of the market in the UK.

The Huawei P9 is the first smartphone co-engineered
with the global iconic brand, Leica Camera AG. The
P9’s dual-lens camera takes smartphone photography
to the next level, allowing people to capture both
vivid colors and striking black and white images.
A groundbreaking moment for event guests included
a first look at an exclusive trailer of the new Huawei
P9 TV commercial starring Henry Cavill and Scarlett
Johansson, Global Product Ambassadors for the Huawei
P9 series. Showcasing the connection between two global
stars in Shanghai and Hollywood, the trailer symbolizes
the partnership between Huawei and Leica and the
intersection of color and black and white. Cavill was joined
at the P9 launch by iconic photographers Mary McCartney
and David Guttenfelder from National Geographic as well
as BBC Global News CEO Jim Egan, Condé Nast Chairman
and Chief Executive Jonathan Newhouse, Vogue China
Publisher Anita Chang and Huawei UK Board Members
Sir Andrew Cahn and Dame Helen Alexander.
“Huawei is excited to give P9 users the best smartphone
photography experience by leveraging the unrivalled
capabilities of Leica, the leader in the world of imaging
for more than 100 years,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei
Consumer Business Group. “Consumers around the world
use their smartphones to take billions of pictures each
year, making photography critical to user experience. P9
users can now capture images with unmatched clarity,
richness and authenticity, with a masterfully designed and
powerful smartphone that looks and feels incredible.”
REINVENTING SMARTPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY
Integrating the design values and engineering excellence of
Huawei and Leica in a smartphone photography system
co-engineered by the two companies, the P9 brings
together best-in-class hardware and software, from
optical lenses, to sensors, to image processing algorithms,
empowering users to capture the highest-quality images.
Key to the P9’s superlative imaging capabilities is a dualcamera
design that fully unleashes the power of Leica’s
optical lenses, renowned for precision and attention
to detail, and subject to the industry’s most stringent
quality screening requirements. The RGB camera on the
P9 specializes in capturing color, while the monochrome
camera is outstanding at acquiring picture detail. The two
rear cameras of the P9 work in tandem to enable users
to create images of superior detail, depth and color. The
P9 truly excels in low-light conditions, as the dual-camera
design guarantees more light and detail can be captured.
Each picture taken by the P9 carries the unique emotional
resonance and timelessness that are the hallmarks of
Leica, as users may choose between three film modes:
their personal preferences. With meticulous calibration
40 #INSPO Issue 7 | Fall 2016
Standard, Vivid Colors and Smooth Colors, depending on
of the P9’s camera parameters, each film mode faithfully
renders the authentic color and style of Leica. By selecting
the monochrome mode, P9 users can use their devices
as a true monochrome camera to capture powerful and
evocative black and white images of superior quality.
Deploying Huawei’s Hybrid Focus technology, the P9
captures images with superior speed, accuracy and
stability. The P9 supports camera focusing based on three
methodologies – laser, depth calculation and contrast –
and automatically selects the one that yields the best result
in any given environment.
The wide-aperture photography feature on the P9 allows
users to experiment with innovative visual effects to create
unique images and content. The P9 makes it easy to adjust
the camera aperture to create bokeh and other depth-offield
effects, while keeping the main object in sharp focus.
“Leica and Huawei share an uncompromising commitment
to imaging excellence, and our partnership will put
outstanding photography into the hands of more consumers
around the world,” said Oliver Kaltner, CEO, Leica Camera
AG. “We are deepening our collaboration to give users a
more optimal smartphone photography experience.”
TAKING INDUSTRIAL DESIGN TO A HIGHER LEVEL
The P9 is a masterpiece of state-of the-art industrial
design, with the same minimalist design DNA as earlier
products in Huawei’s acclaimed flagship P-series of
premium smartphones. Each P9 device is a perfect
construct of superior-grade 2.5D glass and an aerospaceclass
aluminum, with diamond-cut edges rounded out by
carefully balanced curvatures.
The 64GB version of the P9 comes in a stunning and
unique Haze Gold finish, setting new industry standards
in industrial design, with the use of techniques including
brushed hairlines and metal polishing at micron-level
precision to create a translucent metal surface. Additionally,
the Ceramic White version of the P9 is smoother than
the painted bodywork of premium cars, reflecting and
refracting light to present different shades of awe-inspiring
colors as ambient conditions change.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE
The P9 is equipped with the power, connectivity and speed that
today’s high-end smartphone user expects from Huawei. With a 5.2-
inch 1080p display, the P9 is powered by the new Kirin 955 2.5GHz
64-bit ARM-based processor for leading-class mobile performance.
The 3,000mAh high-density battery offers P9 users outstanding
mobility and battery life.
Huawei is also unveiling the P9 Plus, featuring a 5.5-inch Press Touch
display and a larger 3,400mAh battery. The P9 Plus also offers
dual-IC Rapid Charge, giving users six hours of talk time after a
Leveraging Huawei’s industry-leading capabilities in
telecommunications, the P9 and P9 Plus offer unrivaled new features
including a virtual-triple-antenna architecture, designed for users
who need robust and seamless connectivity to cellular and Wi-Fi
networks to fully harness the power of the mobile Internet no matter
where they are in the world.
The P9 and P9 Plus also protect users’ privacy and information
security with Huawei’s world-leading biometric fingerprint
recognition technology. The enhanced fingerprint sensor allows users
to personalize and safeguard their devices by significantly lowering
the possibility of fraudulent or accidental device access, while also
ensuring users can quickly and securely access their smartphone.

The Huawei P9 is available in Mystic Silver and Titanium Grey. RRP £449 (3GB + 32GB).

It’s the age-old denim drama for virtually every
female on the planet - finding that perfect pair
of jeans that fit like a second skin and make you
feel fabulous. For some reason, whatever the
body shape, we all struggle. Fortunately, thanks
to London’s premium denim specialists at Trilogy,
there are a talented few who have the covetable
skills to help you find that perfect pair in just three
tries. I know, it all sounds a bit too good to be
true, and what use is a denim specialist in London when you live elsewhere in the
country? Fortunately for us, Liverpool and Birmingham’s John Lewis Love&Found
departments have their very own Trilogy denim maestros!
Liz Forster, 50, is the resident Denim Specialist in the Liverpool
One store. With 30 years of retail experience, Liz knows her
stuff, and was instantly able to tell our pear-shaped volunteer
(and fellow sceptic), Lingaile, and apple-shaped Ali that they
were both at least one jeans size smaller than they thought.
As she explains, “most girls think they are bigger than they
are,” which is part of the struggle when finding the right fit.
Her job involves ‘finding out what the customer is looking for
in terms of cut, colour, style, and advising them on the correct
size, and what style is right for them.’
But how does she do this? Thousands of us can’t do it
ourselves, so how does Liz have this ability? “Reading about
and working with the brands themselves, working out what
the positives and negatives are of each, and understanding
what the fits are” is a good starting point. Liz tries out every
style and brand that comes into the store, and gets to know
what works for different body shapes.
With Trilogy exclusively stocking premium American denim
brands, the customer is guaranteed a higher calibre of jeans.
This obviously also means a higher price point. Is this a deterrent
for her customers? Seemingly not, with Liz estimating eight
out of every 10 customers making a purchase, many of whom
become repeat customers. She explains that premium denim
is designed to keep it’s shape (so no sagging at the bum or
the knees!), the waistbands are pre-shrunken so maintain a
perfect fit, and are overall more durable and longer lasting.
By calculating the cost per wear, the £200-plus price tags
begin to feel more justifiable. A pair can last you years, the
repeat customers return for new washes and to experiment
with different styles.
Liz herself is very much a people person, and has a passion for
selling, and this shows when you watch her work. She is warm,
observant and positive, she is able to read her customers
which makes her so good at working out what they want.
She also credits her age as being a factor in making her older
customers feel more at ease. And despite looking absolutely
fabulous herself, she is very honest about having her own
body issues and insecurities, demonstrating an understanding
of these womens’ body concerns. The denim consultations
are free, but you definitely feel you’re paying for premium
customer service as well as premium denim.
52 #INSPO Issue 7 | Fall 2016
On meeting our girls, she talks
through what sort of jeans they
usually wear and why, what
styles they’d like to wear, and
what they want to get out of
their jeans. Lingaile wants a pair
that flatters her curvy figure
that she can still comfortably
move around in. She’s active and
wants to be able to wear her
jeans for day to day activities, so
needs stretch and a good rise
so as not to keep tugging them
up her waist. Sophie, with her
petite and athletic figure is after
denim that doesn’t drown her or
make her look even shorter, and
if possible, something to give her more shape. Ali, who has developed a more appleshaped
figure as she’s gotten older, wants to find a boyfriend jean that is flattering
and can be worn as evening wear as well as day wear.
After these initial questions, Liz talks through the styles they have, explains the types of denim and the brands’ origins,
makes suggestions on the various washes, and advises on how best to care for the denim to give it longevity. For each
girl she selects a couple of styles and sends them off to the changing rooms.
Within two tries, Lingaile has decided on a pair of highrise
skinny jeans by AG denim, which has a comfortable
stretch and don’t restrict her movement at all (as she
demonstrates by high-kicking her legs around the changing
rooms!). A problem for so many pear-shaped girls is finding
a cut that fits on both the waist and the hips. In this style
the high waistband fits perfectly around her tiny waist.
“They’re really stretchy, I can move around, bend down,
sit down… That’s what I was looking for and that’s what
I got! Since they’re really nice and tight I feel sexy, especially
with the heels, I feel really glamorous.”
“Oh my God, these are amazing!” was Sophie’s response
to the first pair of jeans she tried. Despite having been
against a skinny high waisted style, “because they’ve never
really fitted me well before,” she remained open-minded
and agreed to try pairs by Paige Denim and J Brand, and
fell in love with both. Paige won out by a whisker. “They
shaped my bum really well - as far as I’m concerned I don’t
really have a bum, so to have something to give me some
shape and a bit of a figure is a nice change.”
Ali’s on-going search for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans
came to an end as well. Having always tried unflattering,
baggier styles leaving her looking a bit chunky (her words,
not mine!), Liz gave her a slim cut to try, also by Paige
Denim. Going slightly against the denim grain, Liz and Ali
opted for a chic, chino fabric in deep navy, as she wanted
something suitable for evenings. “I’ve been wanting to
find a boyfriend style I can wear with heels for a while -
these ones are really nice because the material’s quite thin
and they’re a slim fit, so they’re quite flattering. Because
they’re not traditional denim I’d wear them somewhere
a bit smarter, like out for a nice meal with my husband.”
I’ll be honest, I was bowled over by Liz’s skills. Each girl
chose a pair in less than three tries, and they all looked
fantastic in them. After a little make-over with make-up
artist Lucy at the Charlotte Tilbury counter and a styling
session with Loved&Found’s stylist Jennifer, our three
girls were photo-ready and oozing a bit of new-found
confidence. Not once throughout this process did I get the
sense the girls were being ‘scrutinised’, Liz had them feeling
completely at ease, and she focused on enhancing their
best assets, rather than working out how to disguise their
worst, making the experience feel very positive. As I said
at the beginning, I was very sceptical, but now I’m quite
keen to give this a go myself. I just need to save my pennies
first - I haven’t waited all this time to discover my perfect
jeans to then not be able to afford them!

I’ve never found a pair that wasn’t loose around my waist.
Often times I buy the ones that are too big around my
waist and I have them altered.
Do you have a brand/style you usually go for? Why
this particular brand/style?
The last two pairs I owned were from Esprit. It’s the only
place where I found jeans that were long enough.
What is the most you normally spend on jeans?
Would you consider paying more for the perfect pair?
I spend about £35. I might spend more if the jeans would
fit perfectly AND be of good quality denim.
Has buying jeans become more troublesome as you’ve gotten older?
It has always been hard to buy trousers.
Are there any styles of jeans you particularly like or dislike?
I don’t like skinny low waist jeans. They are just super uncomfortable as I can’t bend my knees. I prefer high
waist jeans because it’s much more comfortable.
If you were to find the perfect pair of jeans, do you think it would
affect the way you dress? Would you wear denim more often?
If I found a perfect pair, I would wear jeans more often. However, I wouldn’t
wear my skirts and dresses, so my style would become less versatile.
Name: Sophie Hood
Occupation: Tattoo apprentice and
part-time sales assistant
Body shape: Athletic/boyish
Do you wear jeans often?
Every day without fail!
What are your issues when buying jeans?
The legs are either too long, or the bum doesn’t sit quite right on me and sags
Do you have a brand/style you usually go for? Why this particular
Not really, I’ve bought a lot of New Look jeans as they are reasonably
affordable and seem to last!
What is the most you normally spend on jeans? Would you consider
paying more for the perfect pair?
£15 at most, I would if it meant they would fit properly in all the right places.
Has buying jeans become more troublesome as you’ve gotten older?
No, they’ve always fitted poorly
Are there any styles of jeans you particularly like or dislike?
I love skinny or drainpipe jeans, because the compliment my muscular legs. I don’t like “mom” jeans, boyfriend or flares
as they tend to drown me out
If you were to find the perfect pair of jeans, do you think it would affect the way you dress? Would you wear
denim more often?
It probably would affect how I dress, I’d be able to wear clothing that didn’t hide my backside as I would hope the jeans
wouldn’t sag or fit poorly. I’d wear denim a lot more frequently!
Name: Ali Belloni
Occupation: Medicine student
Body shape: Apple
Do you wear jeans often?
Most days when I’m not in work. Probably too often!
What are your issues when buying jeans?
Trying to disguise my apple-y stomach. Also as a
student, I am usually on a budget.
Do you have a brand/style you usually go for?
Why this particular brand/style?
I usually go for low-waisted jeans because I think they
suit my shape better. I could be totally wrong about
that, maybe I’ll find out today! I also try to go for
denim with a bit of stretch to it.
What is the most you normally spend on jeans?
Would you consider paying more for the
I am usually too impatient to spend time looking for
the ideal pair, so I justify a quick purchase by not
spending much. I usually get H&M so don’t pay more
than about £30. If I could find some that really suited
me then I would definitely pay more.
Has buying jeans become more troublesome as
you’ve gotten older?
Yes - mainly because I’ve been gradually getting bigger.
I also have less time to shop... and don’t really enjoy
it (am I allowed to say that in a fashion magazine!?)
Are there any styles of jeans you particularly like or dislike?
I always go for a straight leg - I run away from anything that goes out even slightly because it reminds of the
bootcut and flares wearing days of my youth, which makes me cringe. I’d love to get some boyfriend jeans
because they look so good on other people and I love the idea of wearing them with a stiletto heel, but I think
they just make me look even bigger. I am also scared of anything high waisted as I am pretty sure that’s a
definite no go for apples.
If you were to find the perfect pair of jeans, do you think it would affect the way you dress? Would
you wear denim more often?
If I had the perfect pair of jeans for me then I hope it would give me the confidence to be more adventurous
with the rest of my outfit.

SARAH JESSICA PARKER
Sarah Jessica Parker is revealing the fragrance she’s always wanted to create.
STASH is the culmination of her long love affair with scent…and it breaks
all the rules. It is unapologetically sexy and thoroughly addictive.
“When we were creating this fragrance it felt so original, unique and subversive…like we were working on a secret
government project. I thought of the name STASH, because the fragrance came to resemble a precious stone – something
you have to stash away because it’s so valuable,” explains Sarah Jessica Parker. “There’s a Dr. Seuss book called ‘Oh, the
Places You’ll Go!’ When people smell this… oh the places that it will go. The bags, the briefcases, the pockets, the trench
coat pockets, the backpacks, the subways, the airplanes. No one is going to leave it behind.”
Parker is using the power of suggestion to help fans discover the secret of
STASH. A mysterious global street art campaign is teasing the fragrance’s
ultimate reveal. Nearly 100 bustling sidewalks and iconic New York City and Los
Angeles locations have been tagged with #ComeandFindIt in chalk art, spurring
consumers to stop, think – “Who wrote this?” “What does it mean?” – and
hopefully share on social. Parker herself teased the art on Instagram via several
posts, which led to a final reveal of a thirty second video of the campaign ad.
Sarah Jessica Parker worked closely with IFF perfumers
Clement Gavarry and Laurent Le Guernec who helped
create her first fragrance, LOVELY. STASH is a sensual
aromatic woody Eau de Parfum Elixir Spray. It wraps raw,
sexy masculine notes with flirtatious, feminine notes to
create a universally sexy scent.
TOP NOTES: grapefruit zest, black pepper and sage
MIDDLE NOTES: cedarwood atlas, patchouli, ginger lily and
DRY NOTES: olibanum, massoia wood, vetiver and musk
ABOUT THE BOTTLE
Inspired by an apothecary glass, STASH’s bottle is
minimalistic, yet sophisticated, with clean lines and soft curves. A satin black and gold rimmed cap
with twisted black twine and a gold medallion seal the elixir within. The fragrance’s name is written in gold on a ripped
piece of black gaffer tape, and signed with the designer’s iconic initials – SJP.

About six months ago, I noticed a disturbing trend on my Instagram feed. It went above
and beyond the somewhat frivolous body challenges where girls were using shot glasses
to enhance their lips (thanks Kylie J!) or hiding their tiny teenage waists behind a sheet of
A4 paper. I'm talking about the modern phenomenon that is the Duck Face....
Girls as young as 16 are having their faces cosmetically enhanced with filler injections, often
with absolutely disastrous consequences, which we will talk about later. I'm 35, and I have
always accepted that ageing is inevitable. The trick is to
do it gracefully, right? Well I was wrong.
I started asking women about their experiences with
cosmetic fillers, and was absolutely astounded by how
many people have them now, and that they can fix
anything from a tiny wrinkle to your entire profile shape.
Possibly the most disturbing thing that I discovered on
my filler quest was that women are more often than not
putting themselves at great physical risk in their search
for the perfect Kylie Jenner lips, or a chance to turn the
clock back by 10 years. I wanted to find out what was so
good about these 30 second injections that it would make
women put their health at risk just to be able to afford
their yearly top ups. I asked our readers for their personal
recommendations for clinics in Liverpool. I wanted an
establishment that absolutely represented good practice
and The White Rooms Clinic came out a clear favourite.
2016 Fall | Issue 7 #INSPO 77
I approached them for an initial
consultation and a chat with their
lead nurse, Clare Corless. Clare is a
master’s level registered nurse who
has been working in aesthetics for
over 12 years. It's safe to say that
there is probably nothing she doesn't
know about cosmetic procedures and
the risks they can carry if they aren't
properly administered. During our first
meeting, Clare was very focused and passionate about the industry she works in, and I could see the satisfaction she gets
from helping her clients, whether that is from physical enhancements or the increase in their self esteem.
I asked Clare about some of the horror stories I had been told when researching for this article. They varied from skin
infections due to poor hygiene, to exploding lips (I wish I was joking) right through to women meeting unregistered nurses/
midwives/clinicians in car parks to be injected in their cars for £40. Clare was not phased and revealed that a lot of her
work involves fixing mistakes when people have gone for the cheapest place they could find. It's not just hygiene you need
to consider. Clare informed me that if you're having fillers around your mouth and the practitioner doesn't understand
your facial anatomy properly there is a chance they can hit your main facial artery and actually blind you.
Clare took me through a full consultation that required medical disclosure, history of allergies, medication I was taking, even
dental or gum issues (this is due to the fillers needing to be massaged from the inside which can transfer infection from
your gums to the surface of your skin).
As I had never thought about ageing in a way that could be treated, I let Clare guide the process and allowed her to use
her incredibly professional judgment as to what cosmetic injections would be most suitable for me. (Just a little side note:
Clare is one of the warmest, most relaxing people I've ever met and any nerves I had at the beginning of this process
vanished as soon as she started talking!)
Clare was very complimentary about my skin but we decided on some very light Botox in my forehead to lift my brow
slightly and then some strategically placed Juvederm fillers around my mouth (marionette lines), centre of my cheeks and
in some lines at the top of my cheekbones/near my eyes. Clare marked out the areas that would be treated in white pencil
and reassured me that the injections wouldn't hurt as they also contain a mild anaesthetic.
78 #INSPO Issue 7 | Fall 2016
My Botox was done first. This treatment takes 1-2 weeks to
be fully effective. After that time a good practitioner will want
to see you again to make sure that everything is even and
that there are no complications. Then my fillers... I was able
to watch Clare work her magic in the mirror and to say I was
utterly astonished by the immediate smoothing effect is an
understatement! My skin went from looking tired (which I hadn't
noticed before) to smooth, plump and radiant in an instant.
Watching Clare work in a spotless environment following all
the correct guidelines and legal requirements really made me
wonder why women will go through this in their kitchens, cars
and even toilets. Clare is extremely concerned that in a few
years time we will have an epidemic of hepatitis cases as she
knows of practitioners who will allow their clients to share
syringes of filler. They think by replacing the needle tip that
they are preventing cross contamination when in actual fact,
a syringe will automatically suck in some of your blood or fluid
from under the skin and retain it. The next person
that uses the solution will have it injected into them
alongside their precious fillers. Scary, right?
This whole journey has been extremely interesting and
mind expanding for me. It raised questions not only
about professional practice, but the pressure some
women feel to stay youthful or have the perfect lips or
the most beautiful nose etc. Ultimately, I am absolutely
delighted with the enhancements I had. My skin looks
fresh and signs of tiredness are much less noticeable. I
will definitely be having them topped up in a year’s time
and I couldn't let anyone else but Clare do them now.
* Do your research. By the time you settle on a
practitioner you should have absolutely no doubts
about their capabilities, professionalism or qualifications.
* Go to a clinic. Ladies, please stop getting injected at
home/at parties/in cars/whilst sat on the loo. The risk
of infection is absolutely no joke and while you think
you are saving yourself £20, you could open yourself
up to some extremely nasty (and costly!) problems.
* Seek out registered clinical nurses. A midwife is not
a cosmetic nurse.
* Ask questions. Your practitioner should know
everything there is know about the procedure you are
about to have. If they don't or you feel like they are
giving false information, walk away.
* Be critical of hygiene standards. It might sound self
explanatory but a good practitioner won't allow you to share a syringe or inject you in an unsanitary environment.
* Read. Health Education England released new guidelines for anyone administering non-surgical cosmetic procedures earlier
this year: hee.nhs.uk/news-events/news/new-qualifications-unveiled-improve-safety-non-surgical-cosmetic-procedures
The White Rooms is an independent clinic situated
on Smithdown Road in Liverpool and staffed with
the highest qualified nurses around. They offer a
full range of treatments to suit anyone.

Selecting one of nature’s grandest flowers and enriching
its familiar and classic aroma with a twist of rhubarb to

freshened with the captivating aroma of red apple’s crunchy skin and sweet flesh, blended with rhubarb leaves that
gently fan jasmine, gardenia and rose.
Deeper in the heart of the scent, these scattered tones of precious petals are layered with the intriguing aroma of fruity
rhubarb stems, lightly spiced with bright, clove-like and peppery nuances. While as a grand finale, of carnation and the
addition of sparkling white musk adds depth, elegance and lasting pleasure.
The contemporary and modern floral character of Pink Peony and Rhubarb is magnificently represented in the
packaging, beautifully illustrated by award-winning British botanical artist Helen Campbell.
“As Bronnley continue to bring modern interpretations to our brand packaging whilst retaining our brand ethos, we are
thrilled to be working with Helen Campbell on the new Pink Peony & Rhubarb Collection. With such a great talent and

Helen’s exquisite interpretation of the pink peony adorns each product within this gorgeous new range, adding to the
packaging her signature artistic style, whilst remaining true to Bronnley ‘s brand DNA: “As a botanical artist living in
one of the most beautiful parts of the English countryside, being able to capture the wonderful array of flowers that
grow here, in this style of illustration, is extremely special to me. Working with Bronnley, who have an incredible British
heritage that appreciates and utilises the beauty of the natural floral world we live in was a perfect collaboration for
me. With their exquisite detail, Pink Peonies are one of my favourite flowers to paint and this beautiful new fragrance
collection has captured the bouquet perfectly to provide a wonderful all round immersive Pink Peony experience! “—
