Ahead of tonight’s closing show, Tahir Sultan, Fashion Scout caught up witht the TONI&GUY and The Body Shop teams backstage to hear about the concepts they have created to complement the designs in Tahir’s AW13 Collection.

Working with the brief of ‘traveling the continent of India in the 1940’s, and Tahir’s personal love of strong glamorous feminine women; The Body Shop’s Claire has opted for strong eyes using The Body Shop Kohl Liner to represent the Indian theme, and dark red lips to illustrate the presence of the 1940’s. Claire told us that the overall concept was ‘distinctly representative of strong feminine women’.

With regards to hair, TONI&GUY’s stylist Bill told us that the only way to describe the style created is a ‘female version of the iconic James Dean’ – think slick back and sides and an extravagant quiff on top. Nails by FTWS have been painted nude to complement the colour palette of the collection.
