On Friday 14th September 2018, Johnstons of Elgin hosted its first Spring/Summer presentation in the stunning surroundings of the Palm Court at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel.
The brand, famed for its cashmere architecture and expertise, showcased a new dimension this season - a year round collection of new and cutting edge lightweight fabrications, establishing Johnstons of Elgin as a label for every season. Karen Thomson, Owner of KAM Hair and Body Spa in Lossiemouth and Matrix Educator, along with stylists from her team, were backstage to style for the show using hair products from Matrix.
Karen and her stylist Paula, created effortless, natural looking hairstyles for the show that would complement the SS19 collection, which explored three concepts; for high summer, tissue weight cashmere and mesh constructions bring a languid air to the collection. Dresses and cropped trousers in 100% cashmere are impossibly light and full, playing with extreme volume. Tissue weight blanket scarves in bold summer hues feel barely there against the skin. Karen and her stylists aim for the hair was to have it blending into one with the clothes, and the end results were stunning. Hairstyles included sleek, clean hair looks with deep side partings and lots of mirror like shine. The day was very fast paced for the stylists and the final presentation lasted two hours.
Karen Thomson, Owner of KAM Hair and Body Spa, commented,
This was my second Fashion Week and it was an absolute honour to work with Johnstons of Elgin under the stewardship of Alan Scott, the Creative Director - such a privilege to be asked to lead on the hair for their SS19 debut at London Fashion Week.
