Gregory Arlt’s career begins on the streets of 1980s Los Angeles, where he became transfixed by the punks, new wavers and goths of Melrose Avenue. These days he opts for a quieter life. “My club days are long gone,” he explains, “so exploring and trying new restaurants or going to my tried and tested places make for a perfect night.” Still, a glass of Californian chardonnay accompanies nights spent at home, drawing, experimenting and trying out new ideas. His stellar career sees him head-up makeup teams for fashion week shows in Paris, Milan and New York as well as working with a roster of high-profile celebrities. It’s all about imagination, which Arlt believes can take you anywhere.
