3 Alternative Braids Straight From London Fashion Week
Luckily the label.m team—International Artistic Directors Efi Davies, Richard Mannah, Kevin Luchmun, Cos Sakkas and Indira Schauwecker—isn’t much prone to jet lag. Because when they arrived at COLOR, Cut & Style 2016 (Early bird hotel deals are AVAILABLE NOW for COLOR, Cut & Style 2017 in AUSTIN, TEXAS!) directly from a jam-packed schedule at London Fashion Week, they were fresh and ready to go. Even better, they brought along fashionably edgy techniques they had created for top London designers, plus plenty of creative inspiration. “If you ever get a chance to assist at a fashion show or a photo shoot, do it,” Richard advised the audience. “Even if you’re always in the salon. It will inspire you and push you out of your comfort zone. It will force you to practice new methods, and the more you practice, the better you get. Best of all, it will help you remember your love of being creative if you’ve forgotten how that feels.”
Braids continue to dominate Fashion Week catwalks around the world, according to the label.m team, and here are three versions that put a new spin on those conventional twists!
