The latest collection from the Mahogany Hairdressing Creative Team, ‘Ed-torians’ takes strong references from the London based Turkish fashion designer Bora Aksu and ground breaking film director Ken Russell.
Aksu’s heavily continuous Victorian inspired designs, are about contrast. Proper and improper; regular and irregular; elegant with raw. Before Russell’s film directing career established he worked as a freelance photographer. In 1951 he captured the fledging youth and culture fashion of the London ‘Teddy Girls’, whose dress code was inspired by Edwardian gentlemen.
“Whilst remaining absolute to the Mahogany Hairdressing viewpoint, ruffled contours, prominent disconnection and head embracing cutting movable shapes marries perfectly with core colours of metallic mint to opal blonde, with cast colours of pewter silver to a buttercup yellow, creating effortless continuous tonal colour, formulating a seamless diffusion,” says Colin Greaney, International Creative Director.
