In May 2023 Gregory Dean Leigh stylist Hayley was fortunate enough to travel along with Ben to Korea for the Gucci 2024 resort show.
Here is what Hayley had to say of the experience.
How did the opportunity of working at the Gucci Cruise Show come about?Ben Gregory, (one of the owners of Gregory Dean) has worked for Gucci numerous times in the past, this job was always going to be a big one with 65 plus models so he needed some extra hands and of course I was happy to help! Why did you want to work on this event? So many reasons, the location, the brand, the artists, the team the list goes on! When did you go to Korea? I traveled to South Korea in the middle of May, 4 days before the show so plenty of time to prep all the colours and soak in some of the Korean culture. You have worked on fashion weeks in London, Paris and Milan and for many designers, including Amanda Wakely and the House of Holland. What was it like for the world-renowned brand Gucci? I jumped onto the Gucci train and held on for dear life! Being such a huge fashion house everything has to run as a well oiled machine, they have the best production team around to make this possible. They looked after the team so well so all you have to do is concentrate on the job at hand. Everything I saw was on a different scale to what I’ve experienced in the past, phenomenal to see.
Whose hair did you style at the event and what were they like? I was brought in as a colourist for the show, it’s rare for fashion houses to have colourists on location but Gucci does, so this was an exciting new experience for me. I am normally there as a stylist. All the models whose hair I coloured were so grateful, they are from all over the world and were all flown in for the event. How did you feel about being a part of the Gucci Cruise Show? It felt amazing to be part of something so big, especially this show, being in Korea and in such a beautiful location. It is something so far away from home and different to anywhere i have worked in the past.
