MODELS ‘N’ STUFF – WERNER SCHREYER

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

WERNER WITH HEADER

According to models.com,Austrian born Werner Schreyer is one of the top iconic men of the male model industry.

After finishing school, Werner Willibald Schreyer was sent by his mother to Milan, suggesting modelling might be good for him as everything he wore seemed to fit him perfectly. From there he began to travel all over the world, to work with Bruce Weber and very soon Mario Testino found him in London. He went onto shoot Versace, Levis, Guess and Dolce and Gabbana campaigns,  and the extensive list continues.

 Over the last 20 years Werner  has worked with the most prestigious fashion designers, photographers and the most recognisable campaigns around the world, but the most notable campaigns that really elevated him into the icon league was for Hugo Boss, Hugo label.

Werner became the face of their mens fragrance together with becoming the face of the brand, with the first shoot being captured by Juergen Teller in the early 90’s. His actor type looks ( he was often referred to as the James Dean of Fashion) gave the brand a new lease of life and so a star was born. I was lucky enough to work on 3 of those campaigns with Werner and Juergen, which were styled by Venetia Scott.  Some of those images I worked on are featured below

Although still modelling occasionally ( he’s currently in the Pringle of Scotland S/S 14 campaign), Werner now splits his time with acting, creating his artwork, designing clothing, and more recently, photography.

To view his work and generally keep up with what he’s up to these days, visit his website at http://wernerschreyer.com

EDITORIAL ARCHIVE – BRIDGET HALL SHOT BY CORINNE DAY IN 1995 FOR W MAGAZINE!

W Magazine - Bridget Hall shot by Corinne Day - Make up Lucia Pieroni - Styling Alexandra White - Video Stills David Lasnet - 3

In 1995 Photographer Corinne Day was commissioned to do a shoot for W Magazine in New York.

I’d never been to NY or to America for that matter and Corinne had requested me to do the hair for this shoot, and so off we flew to New York for my first time.

We first worked on an album cover for an unknown artist in the US then a couple of days later we began the W shoot.

Lucia Pieroni had been booked to do the make-up by then fashion editor of the magazine Alex White. It was my first time of working with Lucia and from that shoot she’s remained a dear friend of mine.

The model was Bridget Hall who had been the face of Ralph Lauren. Bridget was re-emerging into the editorial arena.

Before flying to New York, Corinne had been experimenting playing with video footage and taking stills off the screen when pausing the video. She decided to use this technique within the pictures she was going to shoot for W.

The shoot went well, or so it seemed and the shoot took place outside of New York. Strangely, it wasn’t published in the magazine until 9 months after it had been shot which is unheard of normally. Corinne was never told why this had happened and actually believed the shoot had been dropped from the magazine altogether because of how long they held on to it before publishing it, and because the clothes were seasonal so she assumed they’d missed the season to run them.

Anyway it did eventually get published and it was the only time Corinne ever shot for W.

NEW TUTORIAL VIDEO – HOW TO GET SOFT, SEXY, SUMMER BEACH WAVES LIKE CARA DELEVINGNE

Posted by | Blog | No Comments


Now Summer’s upon us, the question I’m asked every year is how to achieve those beach waves everybody wants without having to take a trip to the beach.  

Well here is the answer. With my simple techniques using the WAM irons of course. If you don’t have WAM irons you can use other curling tongs/irons. 

This look I created for the Burberry Prorsum show which starred top British models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn.
