Saks Art Team for Balenciaga at V&A

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Our Creative Director, Luke Pluckrose, was asked to head the hair team at the ‘Inspired by Balenciaga’ Fashion in Motion show at the V&A.

Fashion in Motion is a series of exciting fashion shows hosted at the V&A featuring leading designers from around the world. ‘Inspired by Balenciaga’ showcased a collection by Central Saint Martins BA Fashion Design Womenswear and BA Fashion Print students, drawing inspiration from the archives of the Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum.

Luke says: “We loved working with L’Oréal Professionnel and St Martins on this show! To complement the revolutionary shapes and exquisite textures of the clothing we kept hair simple with slightly off-centre partings, long and loosely tied back or short and slicked.”

Zoe says: “I completed the Saks A Team training programme a couple of years ago, exploring avant garde hair and have been regularly called to represent Saks UK at shoots and shows such as London Fashion Week, the BRITs, RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Look magazine.. and now this. My Saks Goals are shaping up nicely!”
