MY INSPIRATION, LIZZIE FOX

My initial inspiration for the look came from the Dolce & Gabbana mosaic print and the Sicilian influence which is at the forefront of all their iconic collections. I was especially drawn towards the royal pose and crown, and wanted to create my own more abstract version within the hair, without using any ornaments. I didn’t want to create anything too structured and so I started looking into different fabrics and architecture to see how I could develop my look. I found the Revolution tower building in Panama and this influenced the twists within the crown. I also wanted to create a contrast between the regal and the rough, looking at texture of rope helped me define the texture with the hair. To create my look I used Shu Uemura Art of Hair Tasai cream and Liquid Fabric which gave great texture and a malleable hold.
