Rare Photo Isabella Rossellini - 1982

Photo: Denis Piel

Rare photo by Denis Piel of Isabella Rossellini with Terry Farrell, taken in 1982.   The hair is by the legendary John Sahag, John Sahag Workshop.  The fashions look like Issey Miyake.  Sahag did the hair for many Paris Fashion Week Photos for the great fashion designer, many editorials in major magazines. Love the tufts of hair at the front of both models.

Sahag Hair Ready for Fashion Shows - 1996+97

Hair history is here. Check out the hair ready for Fashion Shows by John Sahag, his dedicated Workshop Teams, and all the hair staff, who worked day and night (often way past midnight) weekends and their days off to make it all happen. “Haute coiffure” hand-sewn 100% human hair pieces by the hundreds, Sahag-style. The hairpieces were spread out all over the place – on trestle tables, radiators, and the floor of the Workshop for days, even when the salon was busy with clients. This is why Sahag called his salon a Workshop.
Top Row: Hairpieces in color way before their time for high fashion shows. These were some of hundreds made for the Gen Art “Fresh Faces” Fall 1997 New York Fashion Week Show. To see models wearing the pieces from this “tour de force” show, click HERE
Bottom Row: Some of the 157 human hair pieces in 30-40 different textures created for 33 models at the Issey Miyake Spring 1996 Paris Fashion Week Show. To see the models wearing the “modern, young, playful, abstract hairstyles” click HERE

Tiny braids as never seen before, John Sahag’s abstract hair, photographed at the Issey Miyake Spring/Summer 1996 Fashion Week show in Paris. The hair included unusual knots, add-ons, take-off wired, bendable hairpieces (“like vines”) often with sections floating in the air. For more on this show, and Sahag’s wonderful words, read under each photo, scroll back and forth, click here.

1997. A short style way up there, ahead of its time. By the legendary John Sahag. for Issey Miyake’s Fall Winter 1997 Fashion Week Show in Paris. Exaggerated volume which makes the hair look windswept in a very throw-away, natural manner,” John Sahag said of the “amazing shapes” he designed for the show.

To marvel at the aerodynamic, turbulent, no style styles walking the runway in this show, and a must-read, different under most photos, click here:
