It has been a while, but here it is: a brand new edition of #artistinthespotlight! Today, it’s the incredible photographer Rebecca Millen, from Freiburg, Germany.

She is young and is just starting out, but her talent is unmistakable, and I’m sure we will see a lot of her in the future!

I was looking around for some inspiration, and my eye caught this amazing hairstyling on Junya Watanabe’s Spring-Summer womenswear collection. The techniques used here are to make hair into an afro, but the hair wasn’t released – they kept the hair in the wire and made it into a fashion statement, using the wire to make a very punk-looking style.

The hairstylist responsible for this amazing work is Katsuya Kamo, who was interviewed by Infringe in this video. Check him out!
