Cornered: Project Runway's Dylan Cooper
We’re not all about beauty here at bh HQ. We’re also into fashion and style trends, so when we find something that tickles our fancy, we become a little obsessed…
So when Project Runway Australia’s major sponsor, Goldwell, gave us access to this year’s winner, Dylan Cooper, we jumped at the opportunity to corner him and ask him a few questions…
You always look so well groomed – what is your morning routine?
I use Goldwell dualsenses for men hair and body shampoo. To wake my skin up in the morning I use a hot washer and then just a general skin care routine, which includes cleansing, toning and moisturising. I always make sure my moisturiser has an SPF and use a great eye cream to help remove any dark circles.
I also apply Goldwell stylesign Roughman to damp hair and then style my hair for an edgier look.
What are your make-up trend predictions for SS 2012?
So far what I'm seeing is quite neutral by way of colour, utilising natural looks that enhance or highlight your strongest features is really big. I'm really loving the use of neutral and tonal colours, especially when they’re being used more boldly on the face – it’s very striking and luminescent! I love smouldering eyes and strong brows too.
What will we start seeing on the streets fashion-wise at the same time?
I think colour – LOTS of colour. I’d definitely expect it to be around for another season as its seems that colour blocking and bold print is very on trend at the moment and people are really enjoying the revival of colour, which hasn't been seen in a long time. I'm loving the deeper shades of colour that are surfacing too!
Which celebrity’s style do you covet?
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emma Watson and Drew Barrymore – beautiful!
You printed your own fabrics, is that something you will continue to incorporate into your line?
Definitely! I adore prints and it will be something that will continue to appear in my collection, as it’s something that is truly unique and can be tailored to my inspiration!
If you didn’t win, who would you have loved to see win?
It so hard to choose, I love them both and they are equally fabulous! I feel Johnny has a very fresh outlook on fashion and enormous amounts of energy, and Craig has great technical skills to create the garments he designs.
