Validated: The Makeup of Val Garland

In the backstage of fashion shows there is always a creative atmosphere, an ongoing process thought for months, where everything has to go perfectly according to the vision of designers and the makeup artists have to create the exact vision in a relatively short time. There is such a teamwork where coordination has to be perfect, and Val Garland, with her infinite creative genius, has been doing it for 30 years. We live in between two worlds, the tangible one and the world of the online, where it’s easy for us to scroll through our phone to find everything we want, but the books have their own charm, they say a life story that you can read, smell and imagine again anytime,
It took two years for this book to see the light of day and it is a book about life lived out of passion. Without passion, I am telling you, one does not resist the alert rhythms, nor reach high heights. That’s why we have a Lady Gaga with whom the artist has worked – her alien style cheekbones on the cover of the album “Born This Way” created by Val – the biggest fashion shows like Giambattista Vali, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, collaborations with  countless leading magazines – all for the love of color, perfection and creativity.

Mellerio dits Meller: 400 years of history

Mellerio dits Meller: 400 Years Of History

It’s a story that spans 14 generations of one family, running from the Craveggia valley on the Swiss-Italian border, to Paris’ rue de la Paix, via some of the most colorful figures in the European royal history. Jewelry historian, Vincent Meylan, takes us through the Mellerio dits Meller story, in a new book from Télémaque.

With jewelry for Marie-Antoinette, brooches for Princess Mathilde and tiaras for the court of the Netherlands, some of the biggest names in European royal history have deep roots in the history of Mellerio dits Meller. The story of this jeweler to kings and queens has been written in gold and precious stones ever since Marie de Medicis lent her support to the house in 1613, and it’s one that fired the imagination of designer Edéenne for the anniversary collection in July. Writer Vincent Meylan traces the Mellerio saga back through 400 years of royal success and secrets told behind the arras, in a new book from Télémaque set for release in France October 17.
