ghd Australia styles Sass & Bide at LFW A/W 2010

ghd Australia teamed with session styling superwhizz Renya Xydis on February 19, to style the hair for Sass & Bide’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, Tomorrow the Great.

Hair director Renya Xydis produced a dramatic, voluminous style featuring a gold skullcap positioned on the side of the head. To create the look, she used the ghd IV styler, plus key products from the ghd thermodynamics range including Maximise Mousse and Fat Hair.

“The inspiration was to bring drama and theatre into the hair, creating a sculptural style with an futuristic edge,” said Xydis.

Sass & Bide design duo, Heidi Middleton and Sarah Jane Clarke, created a visual collection celebrating the drama of contrast and contradiction at their catwalk show, held in the majestic surrounds of Somerset House in the Strand.

Their modern take on Edwardian style evoked a sense of faded grandeur with high-necks and structured styles embellished in an eccentric mix of shell, bone, metal and perspex.

Strong shapes and clean silhouettes made way for a graphic clashing of stripes, ziz-zags and ethnic print-work, completing a cross-cultural aesthetic.
