Meet the Daniel Avakian girl as the show swept Afterpay Australian Fashion Week (AAFW) and Redken and Diane Gorgievski elevated her to perfection.

“The look is inspired by the Daniel Avakian girl, it has been very carefully curated and the models have been chosen for their personal style so we have gone in with the hair and enhanced all the cool hair cuts and the great textures of each person and carefully aligned them with the outfit for today,” Diane explained.

“The hair look is all about embracing the individual,” she continued. “This show will showcase an incredible cast of individuals, with no hair the same. Cool haircuts and shape will load the runway with an incredible lived-in feel and eclectic diversity. Every look considered, we reiterate the brands individualist approach.”
