I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with Mario Failla, Creative Director of The Gallery in Southborough. Mario was working on the Salon's 2014/15 Collection, and enlisted my help in styling the shoot, as well as sourcing the clothing.
The theme of the Collection was to be 'underwater', and Mario had taken inspiration from the different shapes and textures of rock and coral in the great barrier reef. These were the concepts that were to be carried through to the hair.
From a fashion stylist's point of view, I was keen to ensure that unlike a typical magazine shoot, where the clothes tend to take centre stage, they should in this case simply serve to reinforce the theme and create the perfect back drop for the hair.
I selected pieces from Past & Precious that were in muted hues and/or had interesting textural elements about them, to reflect Mario's chosen theme, and you can see the results of the shoot here
Congratulations to Mario and the team at The Gallery for their recent success in being named Salon Of The Year at the British Hairdressing Business Awards!
