Last Wednesday night Auckland hair salon and creative space French Revolver Studio hosted a 250 strong guest list of media and VIP customers at Britomart Country Club in Auckland to present a night of art, dance and fashion.
The dance performance and fashion show was a live manifestation of French Revolver’s recent #aklwaterdanceart street campaign, which was photographed by Spid Pye and has been displayed around central Auckland for the past month. The live dance performance, featuring the dancers from Diamond Dance in front of large video projectors, was themed around water and fluidity and used the human body as a beautiful form of expression. The fashion show that followed, which featured models dressed by Public Library, used hair as a canvas and presented hair styles as an art installation. All styles were crafted by Brad Lepper, Chris King and Jordan Camilleri from French Revolver Studio in association with Sebastian Professional. 'I came up with this idea when sitting in a cafe in Bangalore and when I returned to Auckland I started talking to Chris King, Spid Pye and Emma at Diamond Dance about it,' says Brad. 'This show was about pushing what we did in the poster into a real life avant garde show in collaboration with other amazing creatives. These are the styles you would see in a John Galliano fashion where creativity explodes. It is a taste of what French Revolver is doing and what it represents.'
