Inspiration and credits for Toxic Fashion
I have created a photo collection and video called Toxic Fashion in which I try and express my horror and outrage at the damage the fashion industry is doing both to the environment and to people's lives.
I aim to encourage people to look at hair as a canvas to create inspirational and awe-inspiring artworks. Avant-garde hairdressing pushes the boundaries of hair colour, texture and styling in order to deliver a powerful and important message.
I shot this collection in a scrap yard and the intention is to shock and to bring to the attention of the hairdressing industry how destructive the fashion world is to people and the planet. Each image illustrates a theme, e.g. the cotton industry, ghost fishing , over use of plastic, pollution of our rivers by chemical discharges. To achieve the looks I incorporated waste materials including daubing the hair with paint, melting plastic into the hair and plaiting the hair with wire.
