Artist Sessions – Monday
The Artist Sessions that were held on Monday gave guests from all over the world the opportunity to experience excellent mastery of their craft.
Hare & Bone’s Sam Burnett and Jamie Benny presented the world premiere of their latest collection called Tainted Quartz.
M&P presented their new collection Reversible, which is inspired by the incredible work of Violet
Chachki and her last fall collection. The name Reversible refers to both the reversible aspect of the
collection’s outfits and Drags’ astonishing transformations. It combines a touch of late 1970’s Studio 54
extravaganza, gold and sequin sparkle, alongside the shine of Goldwell colours to complete the looks.
Mario Krankl, Goldwell global brand ambassador and one of Austria‘s most distinguished hairstylists,
presented his up-dos and avant-garde styles to open the Gala Show on Sunday evening. On Monday,
Mario presented his “Salon Fixer” concept with new styling techniques designed for working stylists.
