Blondes to Brunettes joins RMIT

November 30, 2009 marked the beginning of a fashionable friendship between Prahran salon Blondes to Brunettes and RMIT University in Melbourne.

365 Days of Design will see the boutique hair and beauty salon’s window transformed into an exhibition space showcasing installations by RMIT’s top up-and-coming fashion design talents.

Student creations will be exhibited on High Street – one of Melbourne’s most prominent shopping strips.

Exhibiting students will receive a complimentary professional photo shoot, an album of digital images and assistance with promotional materials, media exposure and PR.

“This friendship between RMIT University Fashion Design and Blondes to Brunettes provides a great opportunity to our third year fashion students to get some fantastic exposure for their work,” said RMIT University Fashion Lecturer Peter Allan.

“Fashion at RMIT is about being cutting edge and experimental which follows the same ethos as Blondes to Brunettes,” he added.

Blondes to Brunettes owner Jane Smith says that the link between the fashion, hair and beauty industries is inextricable.

“We are proud to support RMIT University Fashion and some of Australia’s top fashion designers of the future by providing a platform for exposure.”

“We are all a part of the same vibrant creative community,” she said.

The fashion friendship is set to run through 2010 and beyond as RMIT University continues its commitment to quality fashion relationships.

The first window display will see students Takahiro Kunitoshi and Ayisha Tutone debut their creation with a joint interpretation of the concept of giving – a fitting theme for the festive season.
