Toni & Guy Hair Illustrations for London Fashion Week @ Amelia's Magazine

Toni & Guy 'Classic' style: pencil and inks


The first SS12 London Fashion Week report in Amelia's Magazine was by lovely fashion editor Matt Bramford - 'Catwalk Review: Toni & Guy - Hair Meets Wardrobe'. Like all of Matt's pieces it is a both a hugely witty take on things and truly informative ... I love his articles! I learned what a 'Croydon Facelift' is and also of current trend 'bed hair' (the plant Lady's Bedstraw' comes to mind) - read Matt's article HERE.

It was a fabulous change to be focusing on hair in an illustration, and Toni and Guy's 2012 diverse styles. I enjoyed doing the one above ... somehow the mix of Edwardian lady and some zingy tints seemed to work - & having just watch Downton Abbey's new season's 1st episode it felt in keeping with national nostalgia and this time of year NB. I have to say that Downton Abbey is visually utterly delicious - not just the clothes and hair ... and they are exquisite - but the lighting and  composition of each shot are quite tingle inducing. 

The style below comes under the heading 'Glamour' - as opposed to 'bed hair', though the distinction is a fine one as far as I can see. Still experimenting with the Inktense crayons ... and the wooden bbq skewer, as you can see!



Hope you like them - I loved doing them! And now to Ashish ... x
