Featuring horns, pentagrams and a host of ghoulish characters, Dilara Findikoglu’s SS18 show threw its audience into a dark fantasy world dripping with gothic glamour. Staged in St Andrew’s Church in Holborn, a troop of non-traditional models including rapper Brooke Candy and RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Violet Chachki stomped down the church aisle, which had been transformed by Gary Card’s dramatic set design. Featuring sharp tailoring, pagan motifs and punk embellishments, the collection, entitled ‘Seven Sisters of Inherited Sun’ made reference to Victorian horror, hardcore punk and twisted Hollywood glamour.

Led by Cyndia Harvey, the hair team created a series of unforgettable looks for each of Findikoglu’s characters, from towering mohawks and blood-red curls to a shimmering gold-spiked afro. INFRINGE captured the behind-the-scenes action in the run up to the show.
