CCA 2014 Annual Fashion Show

hair style

The CCA fashion show, once again proved itself to be a fantastic showcase for young up and coming designers.  Parading in their new space, the designers took many unexpected turns in their creative approach to modern dressing.  Texture and color were the main theme and of course, our creative director Moises Villa selected the most elegant perfect look that suited all of the elements.

Bravo…

diPietro Todd at Glaad Media Awards

As a hairdressing company that was founded in the 80s in San Francisco, we have witnessed the LGBT community take great strides and have always supported it’s advancement. Whether it’s contributing to the fight against AIDS or supporting marriage equality, we have watched and cheered as the world has changed. So it is no surprise that we were thrilled to participate in both the LA and NY GLAAD Media Awards this year.

GLAAD

GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), is an organization that protects and uplifts its community. Each year they hold the GLAAD Media Awards to reward actors, movies, directors and personalities who have accurately and positively portrayed the LGBT in the media. Our part was to provide hair touch ups backstage and celebrity gift bags courtesy of Kerastase and Shu Uemura as well as silent auction items. We needed some of our most talented stylists so we brought along Creative Director Moises Villa, educators Nona Zandinejad, Amy Hsueh, Diana Luong and John Mok. We had a ton of fun and were thrilled to style hair for a great cause.

Event photos coming soon, click here for the prep photos.

Last night, Dipietro Todd gave a new meaning to “bed head” when Moises Villa, Hannah Skelton and Nona Zandinejad showed us how to make hair provocative for Agent Provocateur’s private party.  Wearing the store’s most current lingerie selection, pin-up style models donned sultry curls and a messy look that left you speculating if it was a curling iron technique or perhaps a rendez-vous in the dressing room that gave their hair its naughty look. Agent Provocateur was showing off their newly revamped space, and SF’s sexiest showed up for the event. With free flowing champagne, delicious appetizers, and a great DJ it’s hard to believe tonight’s guests have a better, perhaps more intimate, after-party to run off to.

CCA Annual Fashion Show 2013

CCA

diPietro Todd has worked on many fashion shows in the past 25 years, but seriously, the CCA show that took place on May 17th was one of the best ever. The partners at diPietro Todd had the honor of sitting front and center to admire the beautifully diverse models showcasing the designs from the students who were selected as top in their class. The collections were so beautiful, honestly I thought they were as amazing or more than anything I’d seen at New York Fashion Week this year. How the judges decided on a winner was beyond me. And I shouldn’t forget to mention…. the hair was perfect!

Thank you Moises and the creative team at diPietro Todd.

Fashion Week S/S 2012

As the new Communications Director at diPietro Todd, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t holding my breath until my first Fashion Week in New York. Wow, what to pack? how many cameras to bring? what color should my hair be?! With my lavender hair, 2 Canons and an overstuffed suitcase, I set off to meet Moises (our Assistant Creative Director) at our New York apartment for the week. Everyday was a new adventure! The night before, Kerastase would send Moises the addresses of our shows for that day which included an abandoned Post Office, an old warehouse on the Piers and Lincoln Center itself. We raced all over the city in 90 degree weather shuttling Moises from show to show to work with the fabulous creative powerhouse that is Odile Gilbert and the Kerastase team as they created brilliant hair looks for each show. Moi, a creative machine himself, worked very closely with Odile to execute each look for designers such as Suno, Rodarte, Rachel Zoe, Thakoon and Libertine. Akemi joined us for the latter part of our stay as did Dawn Seelenbacher for her show with Reem Acra through Rene Furterer. It was a whirlwind-dream-come-true and I will turning blue in the face until the next one!

Sincerely,

Kelly Nyland
Communications Director

Les Enfants Terribles April 22, 2012

les-enfants-terribles-soiree-april-12-2012_205They did it again! Our brillantly talented assistants have raised yet another bar with their latest show at Club Mighty on April 22, 2012. Inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier and his provocative and genderbending styles, the students created progressive hair cuts, extravagant hair colors and over-the-top upstyles. Much of their inspiration came from the fascinating multimedia exhibition of Gaultier’s work featured at the De Young museum, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk. The students work collaboratively to produce all aspects of the show from the hair, fashion, make up, music and creative direction. Click here to see more photo’s from Les Enfants Terribles. We are so proud of them and eager to see what will inspire them next year! Stay tuned….
