Paul Costelloe London Fashion Week SS17

Friday 16th September 17.30pm

The show

Collection inspiration:
Bold and monochromatic colours with sharp silhouettes came together to create a warrior inspired collection. Collaborating high and securely fastened ponytails, and on-trend intricate braiding, the catwalk saw the fusion of the two looks to amplify the fierce collection.

Hair inspiration:
Braiding continues to be a huge trend and combined with the high ponytail and matte texture, we created a strong warrior look to continue the progression from last seasons’ catwalk

      Rope-braid the ponytail and secure flat to the head using a needle and stitching the elastic
