Charlie Le Mindu's Haute Couture Collection at Paris Couture Fashion Week
PARIS (January 2013) – Fashion’s favorite rising star Charlie Le Mindu presented his first-ever fashion collection “Metal Queen” at Paris Couture Fashion Week for Spring/ Summer 2013 signalling the return of Haute Couture to its rightful home.
This dedicated Haute Coiffure collection inspired by female musicians such as jazz/metal singer Lee Aaron and Nina Hagen, references the excess, glamour, power and sensuality of high octane 80’s fashion. Combining black and white geometric shapes in mouselline silks, Japanese leather and natural Hairdreams hair (30,000 black and white strands), Charlie draws confident, monochromatic silhouettes to express his vision for the perfect, powerful Le Mindu woman.
Coiffing with exclusive special-processed angel-white and asian-black hair colors created by Hairdreams, Charlie presented a masterful showcase of hairdressing techniques accented on each piece of the collection including basket-weave braiding, shape sculpting, contrast layering and for the first time – hair petals. “Hairdreams hair is the most organic material that I use for my fashions. It allows me to use my expertise as a hairdresser and combine it with my collections creating some of the most unique styles ever seen,” explains Charlie.
