London Fashion Week launched the spring/summer 2012 campaign with a Toni & Guy ‘Hair Meets Wardrobe’ catwalk show at Somerset House on Thursday night.
The catwalk show was introduced by Naomi Campbell (I still can’t believe she’s 41!) and featured four signature looks: casual, glamour, creative and classic. Each signature look was personified with striking hair, make-up and outfits worn by the models.
I had no idea what to expect of this catwalk show. What would the theme be? What would the format be? Would fashion play a role? However, Toni & Guy seemed to really understand the correlation and importance between hair and fashion (despite a couple of debateable outfit choices on the catwalk, namely a pink-swimsuit with one-legged fringe trousers). It even inspired me to go and try a few of the looks at home.
The fash-pack party then continued at the Royal Hospital Club in Covent Garden, which involved expresso martinis, mini ice-creams and a whole lot of dancing. Let London Fashion Week commence!
