Vicky Lawton is an emerging director and photographer. She recently attended the 2018 Milan Fashion Film Festival, where she spoke on a panel of female artists and directors as well as presented at the award ceremony. Having studied graphic design and as the former creative director of Hunger magazine, Vicky is driven by design. The protege of photographer Rankin for years, she strives to embrace and acknowledge a bit of attitude from all of her subjects. Directing as well as photographing for brands such as Rimmel, Bourjois, Jil Sander, Chanel, Elie Saab, Vichy and Agent Provocateur, she brings an edgy and provocative flair to her work – as well as getting gutsy performances from artists including Rita Ora, Charlotte OC and Dua Lipa. A bright light in a new wave of female directors, Vicky was nominated for Best New Director at the 2015 Shots Awards and won a Silver at the 2016 Young Director Award in Cannes. In 2017 Vicky was awarded the Creative Circle award for Best Up and Coming Female Commercial Film Director and also appeared on the cover of Pitch Magazine’s ‘Winners’ Issue.
Working with makeup artist Marco Antonio - Vicky photographed and directed ‘Paintbox’. A bold use of colour in beauty, using new face models and a playful attitude.
