FASHION WEEK: Ted Gibson for LP at Rachel Roy
One of the very best shows during Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week was held in the Library at Lincoln Center. For three hours before "show time", Ted Gibson and team created an appropriate hair design for Rachel Roy's "Journey of the Urban Nomad" Fall/Winter 2011 Collection. Using LâOrÃ©al Professionnelâs Texture Expert line, Ted created colorful braids that perfectly complemented the haute hippie style of Rachel Royâs designs.
"I was inspired by the bright colors and fabrics of the collection," said Ted. His choice to incorporate swatches into the hairstyle was a nod to the cosmopolitan voyager that Roy portrayed in the collection.âWeaving fabrics from the collection into the modelsâ hair brought to life Rachelâs muse, the âurban nomad. The look has a young downtown bohemian feel that any woman could recreate at home.â
