I actually got the inspiration to develop Clash from Kay (Kay McIntyre) , helping on British Hairdressing Award shoots with her winning collections, I was keen to develop fashion and style into the magazine to differentiate from other Music titles.I am very grateful to Kay for her input in the early days and support beyond ,also to all those stylists and supporters from McIntyres over the years who helped at gigs and festivals
