Minx Goes Classy with Vivienne Westwood
We love it that Minx Nails has a thing for fashion – especially the outlandish and unique stuff. This time it’s an old favourite and one always takes nail fashion to the next level.
This season Vivienne Westwood, the grand dame of British fashion, presented her Gold Label Fall/Winter 2012 collection in Paris with custom Minx nails completing the elegant theme of the collection.
“We had created custom Minx for Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label collection last month in London,” explained Minx co-founder Dawn Lynch-Goodwin, “and were thrilled when Vivienne and her husband Andreas Kronthaler asked us to again create a custom look for her Gold Label show in Paris.”
Vivienne Westwood’s team sent Dawn and fellow Minx co-founder Janice Jordan a description of the key color themes for the collection along with color swatches. From this material Dawn and Janice created a selection of custom Minx solid nail coatings to perfectly compliment each look of the collection.
“Vivienne and Andreas wanted the nail fashion to be very sleek, glamorous and classy,” said Dawn, “so we also imbued the custom Minx with a unique reflective quality that looked very luxurious.”
The Nail Dream Team
Legendary UK nail stylist Marian Newman headed the nail stylist team for the show which included Adam Slee, David Barton, Monica Ropihol, Jane Emerson, and Delphine that applied Minx to each of the models for the show.
