Narrative is essential in fashion, visuals require words as support, be it a simple caption or elaborate copy. The word “painted” as a painter wields his brush has often been applied to make up. In the images shown here Vicky Steckel celebrates her double inspirations; the relaunch and rebirth of Cellotape, alongside the properties of cellotape itself as a material. We might also note that revision is a term used as in “to look at or consider again an idea; or in writing, in order to correct or improve.” This story is about painting a picture for the observer, both to herald a new Cellotape, and a fresh interpretation of what the tape or bands of cellotape itself might inspire; put simply in words – it’s makeup artistry.
