What’s the inspiration behind the hair?
International Artistic Director and three times Avant Garde Hairdresser of the Year recipient, Indira Schauwecker and the TONI&GUY Session Team create an electrifying look reflecting the treatments used within the 13th century psychiatric hospitals with a finger wave to signify the uneven mentality of the patients
What’s the inspiration behind the collection?
In the 13th century the oldest psychiatric hospital in the world, the Bethlem Royal Hospital, opened its doors in London. Commonly known as Bedlam, it became a London landmark so famous that tourists would visit it alongside Westminster Abbey and London Zoo. And so notorious the name came to mean confusion and chaos. It is here Avant Garde designer, IA London takes us for AW20. Through a groundbreaking collection full of striking reconfigured pieces that force the viewer to consider fashion as art, the brand taps into the complexity of the human mind and the meaning of mental health
This season, synergised between a mutual connection to Avant-Garde, TONI&GUY and IA London also join forces to deliver a custom ‘tote bag’, celebrating the 15th anniversary of label.m and IA London’s debut fashion week presentation
