On January 26, 2016, Australian designer Bowie Wong showcased his SS2016 haute couture collection at Hôtel The Peninsula Paris. Wong’s collection, aptly named ABC123, pays homage to “young women who create unique ways to style their school uniforms.”
Italian STYLE.MASTER Massimo Morello returned for his fourth year as the show’s Hair Director, orchestrating eight unique looks to compliment Wong’s couture creations. An international affair ensued backstage, with members of the KEVIN.MURPHY team flying in from the United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland, Cyprus and Taiwan. Together, they crafted eight styles worthy of walking the Paris Fashion Week catwalk.
Playing off Bowie’s nod to youth and innocence, Morello and the KEVIN.MURPHY team crafted each hairstyle to include some sort of bow. This same school girl touch was celebrated by the designer in many of his chic designs.
Models slayed the runway in Bowie Wong’s designs, and the show was well received by the fashion-savvy reporters lining the runway.
