It’s that time of the year again when the show is coming up and we are left wondering what ‘Black tie’ really means? For our last shoot of the year, GUCFS have partnered with Princes Square & French Connection, hoping to give you some inspo for FOCUS 2018.
French connection SS18 collection
The 2018 French Connection Spring/Summer collection comes as a stylish and strategic addition to your closet. Their electric styles will allow you to wear an item of clothing many times over, from FOCUS 18 to graduation. And, with 15% student discount, there really is no reason not to pop into French Connection and get an outfit for this weekend.
Let’s begin with Kieran and Patricia’s timeless looks. The Kioa Drappe Strappy Maxi Dress is one way to make an entrance. Its floral vibes and fluid movement will make it a showstopper at Galvanizers but also a must-have for your summer nights out. Patricia’s stunning makeup by The Academy of Makeup shows how a bold red lip really can complete any outfit.
Kieran is wearing a smart double face wool jersey blazer along with some stretch slim trousers, an easy and indispensable look in your wardrobe. For a summery vibe, switch things a little with dark blue trousers and a nice white shirt.
When it comes to mini dresses, we fell in love with Amber and Michaela’s looks.
Amber’s Massey Lace V Neck Dress is very glamorous. The delicate frills frame neckline and the cold-shoulder balloon sleeves will turn you into this summer’s Andalusian flamenco dancing queen.
Michaela chose a black playsuit with a pinch of texture in delicate sheer lace sleeves. A fun approach to evening wear, it is modern and original. Add a pair of tights and this playsuit will be perfect in the winter. A timeless modern twist to Mademoiselle Chanel’s little black dress.
Finally, Sarah went for a mini off the shoulder dress with delicate lace, dainty thin straps and sheer cold-shoulder finish. Definitely one of our favourite piece of this shoot!
French Connection is only 10 minutes away from Hillhead subway station, so you can check their new collection in-store easily!

Hair and MAkeup
With your outfit sorted, you just have your hair and makeup to think about…
Rhonda, our hairstylist from Kelvin hair, gave us some good tips to master a classy hairstyle next Saturday. For a natural wavy/curly look, she recommends the Babyliss Pro-Styler. Choose the heat setting and direction of the curl and let the styler do its magic. You can also tease the curls for a softer effect. She further encourages us to set the curls with the Schwarzkopf flexi-hold and keep it shiny with Milk_Shake glistening spray.
Experienced MUA, Karen, from the Academy of Makeup, has been working with us all-year. She has shared with us some of her top tips:
We hope to have inspired some of you for next week and look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!
