Confidence. Women. Hairstyles.
Hey NuMe Girls! I wanted to share some exciting news with you, a little off the cusp from our normal discussions, but totally worthy of a share! Here at NuMe we recently just got back from the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South African International Film Festival, where we took home the award, Best Film, for our piece- Kiss of a Siren!
Directed by our very own Creative Director, Miguel Gauthier, who has won numerous awards in the past for his filmmaking prowess, in partner with fashion photographer and Creative Director of Runway, Viktorija Pashuta.
Not only did we take home the award for Best Film, we filled the categories for nominations for eight awards; Best Film, Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Music, Best Hair, Best Makeup, Best Art Direction, and Best Lead Actress.
As one of the most prestigious fashion film festivals in the world, The Mercedes Benz Bokeh International Fashion Film Festival features work from some of the most talented artists around the globe. Kiss of a Siren mesmerized its audience finishing at the top against globally recognized filmmakers such as, Bruno Aveillan and Ace Norton, taking home the Best Film Award.
The film is breathtaking! You will be in awe when you see the intricate detail within the costume design. The mermaid tail is 25lb. of pure beauty, paired with the ornate headpieces done by some of the most famous designers and stylists in the industry.
Prior to its win at Mercedes- Benz Fashion Film Festival, Kiss of a Siren won Best Film, and Best Costume Design at the 2014 La Jolla International Fashion Film Awards, as it competed against Gucci, Fendi, Cartier, and other world renown fashion houses. Kiss of a Siren also took home the Taste Makers Award for Fashion Film, at the 2014 Taste Awards.
