12 Aug Africa Fashion Week
Kensington Olympia was bursting with fashions elite last weekend as the two day Africa Fashion Week extravaganza took place.
Nicole Iroh, Senior Art Team Member at Notting Hill and Winner of L’Oreal Colour Trophy Mizani Afro Look along with Sian Humphrey Master Hair Designer at Bromley Market Square (who has just passed her NVQ3) were backstage coiffing and curling models hair ready for their catwalk debuts.
Nicole explained, “The theme was relaxed easy glamour so we embraced the natural texture of the models hair creating interesting and fun shapes with afro hair. The next day we created ponytails with a twist some loose, some textured the more avant-garde the better – we even had to find a way of sticking the ponytails to models with shaved heads! Fashion week can be challenging but what a gorgeous and unexpected effect!”
