mcintyres salons’ Nikki Rice and Michael Howie have been talking about their experience working amidst the creative melting pot of the recent London Fashion Week.
Michael Howie was in London as part of the Sebastian Cult Team who styled fashion label Felder and Felder and was lucky enough to do singer Kate Nash’s hair.
Nikki Rice worked at the Blogger’s Apartment at London Fashion Week as a part of Wella Generation NOW team. The Blogger’s Apartment was a location for fashion bloggers to chill out amidst the hectic events with the pop-up blow-dry and styling bar offering tips and styling from the six talented young stylist that make up the Wella Generation NOW team.
Talking about her experience working at the Blogger’s Apartment, Nikki said “Working at the bloggers apartment has been an amazing experience. There was such a good atmosphere with so much excitement and everyone involved was so lovely to meet and work with. It was a great opportunity for us to get first hand the different trends and the stand out designers of the season as well. It was an opportunity for the bloggers to have a little bit of calm in amongst the madness of fashion week.”
Asked if she noticed any trends to looks out for Nikki added, “I think the one thing that stood out as a definite trend was plaits. Most of the girls had a plait or braid at some point through the week in many different forms and also large textured waves were very popular.” And what was her highlight of the experience? “I would have to say the whole experience was a highlight for me and an experience that I would love to repeat!”
