It was fairytale hair by the one and only Odile Gilbert at Rodarte’s Spring 2018 Haute Couture debut show in Paris.  Baby’s Breath,  floral crowns and wreaths adorned heads, shoulders, arms, cuffs, along with satin ribbons, Rodarte-designed metal bow/barrettes pinned into tendrils of hair, and other accessories. Fashion Designers extraordinaire, Laura and Kate Muleavy, wanted something magical for their first show in Paris, held in a 16th century cloister on the Left Bank. And Odile Gillbert along with Joseph Free, a L.A. Floral Designer, helped make magic happen.   There were different hair designs on each of the 50 models, who wore ethereal divine dresses of tulle, chiffon, lace and leather.

The legendary John Sahag, on his brilliant windswept hair for Issey Miyake’s Fall 1997 Fashion show in Paris, said: “There were no curls, no bends, no waves. It was all straight, like the wind was blowing the hair into the shapes on each head, naturally.” If ever an album is a must-read, it is this one. Make sure to read Sahag’s words under every photo.
