BACKSTAGE| Ming Pin Tien FEB13

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.
