“All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today”
– Indian proverb
Colour is my passion and I find inspiration in many different sources.
I really rate the colour forecasting agency that creates the Pantone colour trends. I use the colour trend predictions as a starting point and build a collection of complementary shades and tones and the focal colour or colours. From here I expand into he fashion catwalks of the world – it’s interesting to see how colour placement and textures of materials can influence the final colour result. It’s a great way to get inspired about combining colour and texture together in innovative new ways or using colour placement to give the appearance of different textures or lighting effects in the hair.
Light is a never-ending source of inspiration for me; some of my colour collections have been influenced by the way light filters through stained glass windows. Similarly, seeing how light reflects off hair inspired me to develop my Shine Lines colouring technique, which I’ve incorporated into my salons as a specialist colour service.
Combining all these references and sources of inspiration together helps give me a clear direction, a palette of colours to work with, and helps me develop new colour techniques that I feel will give consumers their own fashion and trend-led colour identity.
In a world where consumers look and demand more personalised and bespoke services, the techniques I have created for my collections show how colour can be used as an integral part of any look. Personal colour identity is the colour movement of the year.
