Members of Andrew Collinge Graduates Liverpool team worked together with LJMU final year Fashion Design students last night to present an exciting catwalk show.
The degree show which took place at newly opened Avenue Hq, showcased the final year collections of LJMU’s class of 2017.
This year marked the 12th year that Andrew Collinge Graduates took part in the event and it has become one of the highlights on the Graduates calendar. Led by Style Director Fiona Davison and Senior Stylist Francesca Clarke, this year’s team of level 3 Graduates transformed models’ hair into a diverse selection of the season’s trendiest styles.
Stylists gave a nod to this year’s 90’s resurrection and choices for the evening included double top knots, braided mohawks and summer waves. The hairstyles perfectly complemented the bold fashion choices on display which ranged from chunky knits to flamboyant floral dresses.
Each year, Apprentices from Andrew Collinge Training take part in the Andrew Collinge Intersalon Competition. The annual event gives trainees the opportunity to demonstrate the hairdressing skills they’ve learnt over the past year and gives them the chance to push themselves creatively with current trends in hair, makeup and fashion.
This year’s judges for the event have been announced and judging the competition will be (left to right) Katie Hartley, Regional Education Specialist at TIGI Haircare, Marco Iafrate, TIGI Creative Director and Sally Whitehead, Creative Educator at GHD.
Katie Hartley is the Regional Education Specialist for TIGI and is responsible for ensuring stylists are educated on any new products and trends from the TIGI collection. Katie has delivered a number of training sessions to our salon teams and works with us frequently to ensure we are constantly up to date with the latest colour knowledge and skills.
