London Fashion Week
We had an amazing time at LFW where we sponsored Emilio de la Morena’s fantastic AW15/16 show.
Emilio de la Morena is a Spanish artisan with a London aesthetic. Emilio’s background is in sculpture and the brand’s innovation is to design dresses that fit beautifully and understand a woman’s body; sexy and chic.
For AW 15/16 Emilio paired lux muted metallics with rich autumnal velvets and risqué sheer panels. Altogether making a luxurious, confident yet collection.
Leigh Keates, Creative Director Hair for Emilio de la Morena and Cloud Nine brand ambassador created The Accidental Bun.
"The Accidental Bun is all about the prep. To get that effortless texture, which changes the end finish of the bun, the Cloud Nine Waving Wand was integral as the wide barrel and low temperature setting allowed me to create a memory in the hair rather than a definite wave or curl. It gives a carefree feel to the hair – we wanted it to look like a style that wasn’t set out to be achieved, a happy accident."
"A key feature of this look was natural texture and keeping finger marks through the top section was vital for that low maintenance vibe. The Cloud Nine Micro Iron has really small plates, which are perfect for getting right into the hair and made it ideal for enhancing these points of detail. To finish the look, I loosely closed the Micro Iron over sections through the top of the hair and used it to tease out flyaways around the ears and hairline for a more relaxed and sexy finish whilst still retaining elegance; the epitome of the Emilio de la Morena woman."
We’d like to say a big thank you to Emilio de la Morena, as well as all the members of our Cloud Nine Session Team who helped make the event such a success.
