During the catwalk presentation “Gareth and his stylist, Katie Shillingford, envisioned using a nail shape for the models that would mirror the unique headpieces created for them” said legendary nail artist Marian Newman.
Custom shapes were created for Gareth Pugh’s show, where Marian worked with Minx co-founder Janice Jordan to create custom striped Black and White Minx and striped Purple and Matte Silver Minx that the models wore on their fingertips.
“The stripes complemented the leather cages surrounding the models’ footwear and ensembles,” explained Marian, who told us that the models also wore Purple Minx on their toes.
Personally, I don’t know if I’m crazy about the nail style and how the models were Minxed, but I do love Minx and the black and white stripes. Remember though that a fashion show is just that, a show, so although these styles probably woud’nt be wearable for every day, using the concept of Minx, black and white and you’ve got yourself a winner!
