FASHION WEEK – Malan Breton Fall Winter 2017/18


Hi there to my Friends at HairDesignerTV and Fellow stylists,

I have just come back from NYC Fashion Week.
The blizzard hit New York hard and strong the day of the Malan Breton Fall Winter 2017/18. fashion show,  and I questioned  if we would make it to the venue at Madison Sq Gardens? 
But no blizzard could stop fashion!  

A full house, with a packed ‘Photo Pit’, no storm would stop us! Back stage with 50 models, 36 hairdressers, 20 Make up artists, Malan’s support team. In addition photographers jostling  for a great shot, it was a packed back stage.
3 hours to bring a wonderful collection to life One word CRAZY.

Malan Breton and Vivienne Mackinder Back stage

Its crazy magic and such an honor to work with Malan Breton, he is a  genius Designer who continually creates original designs  without ever compromising the beauty of the style.  The inspiration for the collection 1920’s Silent movie stars.  I hope you enjoy clips from the show.

The show featured 3 different looks,  fused together in Waves. The challenge for the faux bob, was that most of these models had very long hair,   (I will be demonstrating this look on a future video on HDTV).   It is an art to create this illusion of a short bob, and create a glorious wave around the face.  

I think  I did 20 Faux Bobs in 2 hours – I lost count!!!

For this look we did apply Hair Extensions and then Marcel Waved around the temple area.
The longer hair  was waved in a lazy wave with straight ends.
