Welcome to the beauty land of Søren Le Schmidt

Beauty artist Sidsel Marie Bøg details the concept and idea behind the fantasy-inspired looks at the Danish label's recent show

Think Five Nights at Freddy’s mixed with a bit of Wonderland, a dash of The Nutcracker and a whole lot of fantasy, there, you have it — Søren Le Schmidt’s latest collection.


Inspired by the theatrics and styles of HC Andersen’s adventures and tales, for this season the Danish fashion house took the common thread of the desire to fit in and be recognised no matter one’s beauty, and made them into exquisitely tailored pieces and garments. Nonetheless, there was a second work of art on the premises that one can’t pass by — the beauty, hair and makeup the models showcased to the audience as they rode through the iconic ups and downs of the Tivoli Gardens.
