In his latest hair fashion collection, British hair master Jason Hall once again shows his artistic mastery in the art of hairdressing.
For the Afro Couture collection, the team’s aim was to showcase both Jason Hall’s trademark hair creations, as well as Compton Quashie’s distinctive garment designs, taking inspiration from African culture, designed to meet the modern aesthetic. They chose to shoot in studio, lighting the models against a textured backdrop, which helped add that specific earthy, natural feel that we wanted to give the images. Capturing the models both in strong confident poses, as well as in movement, allowed them to capture the way both the material of the clothing designs and the hair moved with the body.
“So strong was the final selection of images, we chose to publish both full body shots, to showcase Compton’s wardrobe creations and closer in crops, to show the details in the hair creations Jason had created,” they say. Add in some great high end makeup skills by Paulina, the models working at the top of their game and they had a shoot where all of the right creative elements came together perfectly on the day, making it a really worthwhile collaboration to be involved in.
