Minx Nails @ Paris Fashion Week

By Inspirationail

Minx Week on InspirationailThis year Minx provided the nail fashion for the Alexander McQueen Spring / Summer 2010 collection during Paris fashion week.

UK nail technician Marian Newman worked with Minx co-founder Dawn Lynch-Goodwin to provide customised Minx designs that matched the new collection. Here are some behind the scenes pics (and quotes) of their experience at the show.

I have worked on shows for many years, and there were a few designers that sprang to mind as being ideal for Minx. One of these was Alexander McQueen as he usually likes something different, to say the least.” ~ Marian

We wanted Minx to become a true fashion accessory, so that an outfit was not complete until you had tied it together with your nails.” ~ Dawn

The models were all having their hair and makeup done, and it was a really small space so as they were squeezing into their clothes and getting twisted and turned every which way, their nails were constantly falling off.” ~ Dawn

With a lot of hard work and a great team, we got the job done and the whole effect was truly amazing. The nails and Minx got a great deal of attention back stage.” ~ Marian

It was our vision to elevate both nails in the fashion world, and nail technicians as a crucial part of the stylist’s team.” ~ Dawn

Fashion Inspiration

Being at the Paris Fashion week inspired a new Minx collection called the Teaser Line.

Always on the cutting edge, the two dozen colours in this collection are iridescent so they change colour as the light hits them.
