Be in­spired about fash­ion and makeup by lis­ten­ing to two speak­ers at Couch to Cat­walk.

The event is be­ing held in as­so­ci­a­tion with the block­buster Cat­walk to Cover ex­hi­bi­tion at Ex­pres­sions Whiri­naki.

Im­age Con­sul­tant Leonie Dobbs, owner/op­er­a­tor of Style on Jack­son in Pe­tone, reg­u­larly guides shop­pers so they have a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of what colours suit them, re­gard­less of their age or shape

A cer­ti­fied con­sul­tant since 1996, her knowl­edge makes for a unique ex­pe­ri­ence.

Deb­bie Par­lakchief, the founder and cre­ator of Doll Face Min­eral Makeup, will also speak at the Jan­uary 27 event.

Par­lakchief started her busi­ness on her din­ing ta­ble in 2010 and has since ex­panded into a full beauty sa­lon in Lower Hutt, which in­cludes the full range of Doll Face prod­ucts, beauty treat­ments, nail art and man­u­fac­tur­ing space out the back of the store.

The busi­ness has ex­panded to in­clude a cus­tom blended makeup bar for foun­da­tions and lip­sticks, which is open­ing soon.

While there walk through Cat­walk to Cover, which comes to Up­per Hutt from Lon­don’s Fash­ion and Tex­tile Mu­seum, and closes on Fe­bru­ary 12.

For more in­spi­ra­tion, pop along to Mandi Lynn’s work­shops, which will also be held at Ex­pres­sions.

On Fe­bru­ary 12 Lynn, NZ Il­lus­tra­tive Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year fi­nal­ist and body pos­i­tive teacher, presents two hands-on work­shops. The first is aimed at moth­ers and daugh­ters and is all about how to have a pos­i­tive view about your body and feel good in your own skin.

The sec­ond is on how to look good in pho­tos, how to take great fash­ion pho­tos and how to dress for the cam­era.
