Val Garland -.?
‘Lee was obsessed with a skeletal type of beauty, had this idea’ otherworldly ‘of perfection that was on edge. Instead of adding, would take away the features to make the bone structure more prominent ‘

Sharon Dowsett –

‘. To get the look for Untitled ( Golden Shower , SS98) show, I made the lashes with feathers and shaped to resemble bat wings and fins of fish. A team that worked on the Star Wars films applied prosthetic eyebrows models, creating a look very mannequin-like. In the middle of the show, the water started dripping on the catwalk to the tune of ‘I Can not Stand the Rain’. Lee wanted to ‘make-up to look’ models destroyed ‘- to look like their mascara had run. We were around the backstage adding black tears while the show went on. ‘
