Toni & Guy, long-term Sponsors of Vauxhall Fashion Scout are back for S/S13, creating amazing looks for the next generation of designers at London Fashion Week.
With over 30 shows, the backstage teams have their work cut out for them, with a range of contrasting looks and hundreds of models, the Toni & Guy stylists are working directly with designers to bring their collections to life on the catwalk. In a spare moment amidst the madness, we caught up with one of the fantastic backstage team, to discuss favourite designers, inspirations and seasons past and present.
Hi Emma, It's great to have you back at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, what is it that keeps bringing you back?
Vauxhall Fashion Scout is great because you get to see young designers ideas, see how trends are moving forward every season, and for me as a hairdresser- I like to link my work and hair in to fashion, so it gives me lots of inspiration and ideas on how I can progress my own work.
What’s been your favourite show to work for?
I’m working on Manuela Dack later today and I’m really exited for that, her collection is absolutely stunning and the hairs going to look beautiful.
How do you feel as VFS as a platform for upcoming designers?
It’s a great way for new designers to show their work and hopefully start developing themselves into the industry. We bring the hair concepts and hopefully try and develop hair that really compliments the designers collections, so that they tell a full story.
