Madeleine was presented with both accolades at a ceremony held in the prestigious Sydney Town Hall on Monday April 1st. Madeleine was feeling “a bit nervous about the whole evening,” being her first competition since moving to Australia in 2008.
The winning collection is called ‘La Propagande des Femme’ meaning Female propaganda. Her vision was to “mix the bold and abstract styles, which portray the deliberate nature of propaganda, with femininity represented by the use of colour and the porcelain-like skin of the models”.
Madeleine is a style director & staff trainer at Hair Machine Glenelg. Having lived and worked around the world, Adelaide has captured her because, “Adelaide is simple and easy. It takes me 5 minutes to walk to work and that just takes away so much stress and hassle from my day”.
Madeleine’s fashion trend predictions for the 2012 autumn/winter season include “heavy fringes, sleek ponytails and retro hairstyles. Dip dye hair will be a continuing trend but this season is about bold and contrasting colours”.
Madeleine’s number one tip for a great looking style is simple, “always work with you hair, not against it”.
When she is not working Madeleine enjoys exploring the vintage stores around town including Rewind and Nadia’s House of Serendipity. Her favourite getaway spot is the quaint beachside town of Robe.
The Australian Hair Fashion Awards are an annual event run by Australian Hairdressers Journal.
