Charlie Le Mindu

Charlie Le Mindu continues to amaze me with his surreal hair sculptures.
I'm pretty sure this image is going to haunt me forever:

Le Mindu also does cuts of the more everyday variety, and eventually when I visit London I'll have to get one... Though I've heard indecisive types generally end up with bobs and rat-tails!

Now, back to making this pesky jumpsuit. It has to be completed by wednesday so fingers crossed it'll turn out! Exciting things planned for the blog when all this crazy work is done. x

Books utilised as fashion materials:

Reference or homage to chunky wedge trends? Giant 'fuck you' to the domination of these styles everywhere? P'haps neither is accurate, but I love the way this image made me reconsider the construction of fashion items at a base level...
