Headwear for Sassoon Academy

This Summer saw the start of a new project with Sassoon Academy, creating headpieces worn for the Sassoon presentation during the NATVA (North American Trend Vision Awards 2017).

I was delighted to work with the Sassoon team again and with the inspiring vision of Creative Director Mark Hayes, we got to work on the creation of two unique and challenging headpieces!

A striking Yellow headpiece with dramatic angles shaped around the face (referencing classic Vidal Sassoon hairstyling) was worn with a stunning matching outfit from Moonstyle (see below).

I also created a metallic mask which drew inspiration from Naum Gabo’s sculptures of the face and Picasso’s tribal paintings.

Here are some images of the ”making” behind both headpieces alongside the NATVA show! Video link below).
