Rush Session Team Chosen Stylists for Belle Sauvage Spring Summer 2012
RUSH Session Team were the chosen stylists for design duo Belle Sauvage Spring Summer 2012 show at The Old Sorting Office, London. Tina Farey, Paola Pinto and Isabella Hyde led the team to create 40s classic looks with a contemporary twist.
Belle Sauvage designers, Chris and Virginia personally invited RUSH Session Team to style the hair for their show for the 3rdseason after developing a close working relationship of creative compatibility. Known for their vivid digital prints and sharp silhouettes, the RUSH Hair brand complements Belle Sauvage perfectly.
The Spring Summer 2012 catwalk showcased the signature looks of space age digital prints combined with bold structured tailoring full of bright colours. Heading up the RUSH Session team, Tina Farey, Editorial Director of RUSH Hair designed hair to complement the strong designs.
“The brief we had from Chris and Virginia had a 40s theme with images of the classic finger waves and victory rolls. We put a modern twist on this by keeping the sides very tight and creating a “V” shape with the victory rolls with a smaller roll through the middle area. The finger waves where added after, in different positions, working also with the hats.”
To prepare for the show, the team worked on creating the waves on hair wefts prior to the show which could then be added to the hair. With 12 models and two hours preparation time, the team worked together to produce the incredible finished looks.
RUSH Session Team members worked alongside Tina Farey to create the show stopping looks.
“It was fantastic to work with Belle Sauvage for the 3rd season, we all really enjoyed the brief with the 40s theme and contemporary edge. There was a fantastic buzz about the show and we loved the change of direction. Prepping the hair wefts beforehand was essential and on the morning we created very clean modern victory rolls at the back with a smooth panel in the centre and a small roll below the crown. Some models had hats that where placed at different angles on the head while short hair was gelled back with the small horizontal roll added for continuity.”
