The winning team had to create a look on a model of African / Caribbean descent that captured a key Autumn/Winter 12 catwalk trend. Their look was inspired by the 1940s trend of victory rolls which was created with a softer, more modern finish to suit the model’s natural hair texture. The hair colour was inspired by Henry Holland and Roberto Cavalli A/W 2012 using strong colouring and shading out to pastel tones.
