Former Ones To Watch designer Ming Pin Tien prepares for his “Bye Bye Youth” Feb ’13 collection backstage at Fashion Scout which will explore themes of uniform and youth with a use of materials that experiments with texture and colour in new ways from his previous work. He takes a softer approach with this new collection that will be matched with the hair styling created by the team at TONI&GUY.
Speaking with a member of the TONI&GUY session team before the anticipated show she talks about the looks saying “We’re doing something that is up, like a ponytail but we’re making it a little bit different with the fringe that will fit with a hat as well” creating a look that is a youthful spin on a classic up do in keeping with Ming Pin Tien’s Feb ’13 aesthetic.
Hair is up in a sleek and sophisticated way, soft natural hair is swept up in a twist that allows a smooth fringe for a youthful touch to an otherwise mundane look.
Ming Pin Tien showcased his collection last season as part of Fashion Scout’s Ones To Watch catwalk show and returns this season with a show of his own stronger than ever.
