NFW Announces The Dipple & Conway Hair Show
As Norwich Fashion Week continues to grow, the 2016 event will feature a new, cutting edge Hair Show, designed to celebrate the collaboration between fashion and hair. The Hair Show is being sponsored by Dipple & Conway, one of Norfolk’s leading opticians practices with a reputation for great style.
The highly anticipated new show will highlight the wealth of hairdressing talent in the city, and the impact these stylists, colour technicians and barbers have on finishing the overall fashion look with inspiring hair designs.
The Dipple & Conway Hair Show will be coordinated by Deb Dominic, owner and founder of Hairsmiths salon in Norwich, who joined the NFW board this year. Deb said: “Through my love of session and editorial work I’ve been involved in numerous seasons at London Fashion Week, so I’m delighted to have been asked to help bring the idea of a dedicated hair show for NFW to life. We’re looking to create a spectacular event which really demonstrates how the hair and fashion industries work in harmony. I hope it will help to unite Norwich salons, and stylists, and really get people talking.”
Dipple & Conway is an independent, family run business with branches in Norwich, Swaffham and Diss. As well as providing advanced clinical eye care to customers throughout Norwich and Norfolk, Dipple & Conway stocks some of the most fashion-forward glasses and sunglasses in the region and provides expert style advice. In addition to sponsoring the Hair Show, Dipple & Conway is also the official supplier of eyewear to all of the NFW16 shows.
Matthew Conway, director at Dipple & Conway Opticians, said; “In our experience, glasses form a key part of someone’s personal style. Just like a fabulous haircut, the right pair of glasses can totally transform a person’s look and their confidence. There is a real synergy between glasses and hair styles so it makes perfect sense for us to be the sponsors of the first ever Norwich Fashion Week Hair Show.
“Dipple & Conway began trading in Norwich almost one hundred years ago and we’ve been playing a key role in the changing fashions of the city during all those years. We’ll be celebrating our centenary in 2016 and being part of Norwich Fashion Week will form an exciting element of those celebrations.”
Deb Dominic added: “It’s great to have such a fantastic sponsor as Dipple & Conway on board. They epitomise what it is to be a successful, fashion-led brand in our fine city; helping people to create a unique look that suits their personal style.”
The Hair Show will feature a live DJ set throughout by local superstars Tropico, and a surprise finale. It will be held on Friday 11 March 2016 at OPEN, the official home of NFW16.
