Titled “Addicted to Love”, Wayne Cooper’s 2009 RAFW jaunt included none-too subtle references to Robert Palmer’s song of the same name. Cooper’s girls marched the runway with looks reminiscent of Palmer’s slick back-up dancers mixed with the strong women of Helmut Newton‘s infamous back catalogue.
With a nod to strong blondes Jerry Hall and Deborah Harry, Cooper sent out a technicolour palette of electric blue, bombshell pink and acid yellow in a collection that bore more than a passing reference to the 80s.
The slick and bold show featured a wealth of body con lines, diaphanous fabrics, ruffles, folds and super short eveningwear in digital prints fit to outlast the longest of parties.
Goldwell Hair Director Neil Moody led the hair looks for the event that took their cue from the tough 80s vibe that ran through the collection.
“Extensions added bulk, not length, to finer hair and we started with the back of the hair, making it sleek and straight before slicking back the sides and pulling the top section back making sure it wasn’t too quiffy,” said Moody.
Goldwell Volume Lagoom Jam added height to the middle sections while Goldwell Brilliance Glamour Whip volumising mousse added height ot the top of the hair. Goldwell Wild Composer was used through the sides, while Goldwell Hot Darling provided heat protection. Goldwell Natural Light Kiss supplied a light lacquer while Goldwell Brilliance Radiant Star and Magic Finish completed the look with luminous shine.
