John Sahag, Futuristic Butterlfy - 2003

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

In 2003, John Sahag and the Workshop Team put on a memorable show at the IBS NY.  The theme was  futuristic butterflies. Here is one of the playful looks. The meticulously engineered couture hairpieces (which took 4 hairdressers and 4 assistants 4 weeks to create) were cut-up, colored, entwined, tied with elastics and attached to heads, with seams showing.
