The Daniel Galvin creative hair team are thrilled to be the official hair team for the Autumn/ Winter fashion show during this seasons London Fashion Week and what an inspirational show it was.

Backstage at the Covent Garden based venue hours ahead of the show the hair team were hard at work, transforming wigs to show-stopping works of art. These works of art were cleverly developed by the talented hair team ready to compliment, contrast and perfect the newest Vin and Omi Autumn/ Winter collection on the catwalk.

The pressure was on for the team, but welcomed and embraced by everyone, especially for some of the junior stylists this was a first fashion week experience and the precision and creativity by the entire team was applauded by the designers themselves, ‘’Thanks to your team for their wonderful efforts at the show. They were all so professional, it was great.’ Vin and Omi.

Inspiration behind the A/W Collection // Inspired by livestock using raw hand-woven materials to give a raw and natural feel while experimenting with colour and contrast.

Strong silvers, oranges and teal blues peppered the collection in a contrast from the natural fleece, while oxidised metals twist into flowers to form intricate slices of “damaged, twisted beauty”.

In keeping with the theme, Vin and Omi briefed the Daniel Galvin Creative Team to use the same materials to create ‘woolly clouds’ in the hair, taking in the natural shape of the fleece and manipulating it to create cloud-like shapes and styles.

Joel Goncalves, heading the team backstage says “Once we decided on the cloud theme, we studied images to determine this shape and movement, then stapled the wool to the wigs and sewed with elastic – enabling us to pull apart the wool where necessary and create the ‘fluffy cloud’ shape. A strong hairspray was then used to mould and fix the style. While the colours varied from natural shades of chocolate and ash blonde, elements of sky blue and some deep orange were evident, matching the splashes of colour in the collection. Vin + Omi requested that there was a degree of separation between the forehead and the hair to give the illusion of floating. To create this separation, we ensured that the wig cap was visible on the head’.
