Kaleidoscope collection Masters 2018 Nomination5. kaleidoscope_rainbow swirl_mackinderd

The Inspiration was a Kaleidoscope of color and texture.  I wanted to create a Fine Art Collection, mixing bold shapes with movement and color.  Being mindful of color placement to add depth and drama to each look.  The challenge was to push the creative spirit without compromising beauty.

Not being shy about color, you will notice that a couple of the styles have every color within the Joico color intensity line, nothing like a bit of extravagance. While I wanted originality, it was important for the style to look expensive.

My color team Joico, Phil Ring and Gion Vincent pushed the creative boundaries to create Kaleidoscope.  It was a magical collaboration for which I am so grateful.
Team work makes the Dream work.  Thank you to my amazing team.
