jones + jones Florence Dress spotted in Style Papers

Whilst on a design trip to Paris last weekend the jones + jones team were very excited to spot the Florence Dress in Slate Grey in glossy French magazine Style Papers…

Florence Dress in Slate Grey

 

The Florence Dress was described as the perfect dress for a petite frame; the daring deep ‘V’ neckline on this dress leads down to the fitted waistband and delicate petals flow to the hem of the skirt, showing just enough shimmering skin to attract all of the right sort of attention!

The Florence Dress in slate grey is available on our website here.

The winner of our Halloween competition is..

Our Halloween competition to win a jones + jones dress of your choice ended yesterday and we have chosen Lucy as our winner! We loved Lucy’s idea of wearing the Florence Dress in Olive and dressing up as Batman villain Posion Ivy!..

Lucy says: “I would dress up as Poison Ivy wearing the jones + jones Florence Dress in Olive. The green colour of the dress and the petals would go with this theme perfectly!”

If you did not win then do not despair as we have launched another exciting Halloween competition today! All you have to do is tweet us a photo in your Halloween costume using the hashtag #jonesandjoneshalloween and our favourite wins a dress of their choice! For further details see here.

We can’t wait to see all your entries!!

A glimpse into the glamorous world of our amazing make-up artist, Katy Nixon!

You may have seen her name mentioned on our blog before but if not, we’d like to introduce you to our amazing make-up artist Katy Nixon! She helps to add those finishing touches that transform our location shots from very pretty to absolutely stunning! We’ve asked her to tell us abit more about herself and we’re very honoured to have the opportunity to share with you a little insight into her glamorous world…

 

 

I have been a make-up artist since 2003, but have been around fashion from an early age, as it is in my family so I was lucky enough to do work experience on editorial photo shoots and help backstage at Fashion Week. It was after assisting at that early age that I knew I wanted to be a fashion make-up artist and finally found an outlet to combine my two biggest passions art and fashion. I would always look through the glossy fashion magazines and see all the big campaigns. I would really want to be a part of them and  just knew there was nothing else I wanted to do.

 

My favourite thing about being a make-up artist is making people feel good and confident about themselves and knowing that I have made them look their best is very rewarding. But of course the travel is great and seeing lots of amazing locations.  Also doing something different all the time is great, as sometimes when you’re a creative you can get bored easily and I enjoy not falling into a routine all the time.

My most glamorous client (apart from jones + jones, of course!) is Louis Vuitton. Working amongst such amazing expensive couture garments is a major perk and gets me really excited. Although most people would expect my celebrity work to be more glamourous, I always prefer the buzz at Fashion Week and the satisfaction a great shot at an editorial can bring.  However being flown to L.A for the Oscars with one of my celebrity clients was also pretty glamourous!

 

 

My top make-up tip for S/S 2012 is keep it really light and fresh, change your smoky eye to something more nude and opt for a brighter colour on the lip for a younger more girly look.

 

Highlighters are great at this time of year and give the skin that gorgeous dewy glow that we always see on the red carpet.

My favourite jones + jones dress is the Florence Dress because it is super feminine but edgy at the same time and I love the peach and coral colours…

 

 

If I had to choose just one beauty product to pair with such a gorgeous outfit, it would be a good bronzer nothing looks better with coral than sun-kissed skin.

My one piece of advice for any aspiring make-up artists is to never say no to anything, you never know who you are going to meet along the way!

 

Thank you so much to Katy for allowing us a glimpse into her fabulous career and you can check out more about Katy and her work on her website www.katynixon.com!

Watch this space for exclusive stunning summer make-up tips from Katy very soon!

With love, jones + jones x

jones + jones in the DCU Fashion Show!…x

We were so excited to be part of the amazing DCU Fashion Show for the second year running last Tuesday! The event, sponsored by Diet Coke amongst others, showcased modelling and design talent from across Ireland as well as collections from top high street brands ranging from Zara to H&M, Jack & Jones to jones + jones!…

 

 

The theme of the show was ‘High Tech Heritage’,  which chairperson of DCU Style Society, Susan Gorman, described as a celebration of  ’…our fast-changing, internet and media rich world merged with the rebirth of vintage clothing’. From the sparkling sequins on the Julia Dress to the edgy structuring of the Nicky Dress, the full and flirty forties and fifties inspired skirts to the on-trend textural florals, we think that the gorgeous selection of garments showcased from our S/S 2012 collection perfectly encapsulated the theme alongside the projections and social media used.

A huge thank you to all of the stunning models and a special thank you to Aoife Fitzgerald and our fantastic Concession Managers in Dublin, Aimee Harden and Zara Andrews! You can find all the stunning dresses on our website here and in our amazing concessions in select Topshop stores including Topshop in the Jervis Shopping Centre and in St Stephens Green in Dublin!
