Frankenfashion by Alex Turvey

Being a new blog in progress for a new magazine in progress, I have the privilege and excitement of seeing, reading, and approving/disapproving  of every new comment that is given.  Well today, I was doing my daily “look see” of comments and came across one from Alex Turvey regarding his Dazed & Confused commissioned fashion film — Frankenfashion, that features the wigs and hair ( “The Lips” ) from hairstylist extraordinare Charles Le Mindu and clothing by some of the hottest desginers out there — Nathan Jenden, Rupert Sanderson, Hannah Marshall, Louise Goldin, Manjit Deu.  For those that don’t quite understand it, the film can be viewed as disturbing, but you can’t deny the aesthetic beauty of this film from the clothing to the music, to what inspires Mr. Turvey to create such a film.  Kudos Alex.

LFW SS10 Backstage: Charlie Le Mindu

I like to think that I keep up with the unconventional talent within the fashion industry, but I was stumped when my photographer in London sent me several images from backstage of Charlie Le Mindu’s collection, pre-show. So I did my research on this hair coiffure, and this is what I found out:

  • He hails from Berlin
  • He created the pop-up salon by cutting hair in trendy clubs, as opposed to traditional hair salons
  • He was discovered at 13 YEARS OLD, and studied at Vidal Sasson and Toni & Guy

Wunderkind much?! Looking through the images A La Mode sent over, first thing I thought of was the creativity and boldness of one of those Detriot hair fashion shows, which in my opinion is not a bad thing.  If the backstage photos looked this eye-catching, I can only imaging the entire show…hopefully my photog can send some runway pics of that, but until then ENJOY!
