Nail tech, Nickie Rhodes-Hill, led a team of eight for a live fashion showcase that celebrated British designer, Phoebe English.

Held as part of the Fashion in Motion series, which features leading fashion designers of our time, the live experience is designed to make fashion accessible to a wider audience. The showcase was featured at the Victoria & Albert museum and saw quirky set design with puppets featured.

Team Nailmania, which comprised Nickie, Joanna Newbold, Natalia Mihailova, Nichole Williams, Miaki Bowen, Jasmin Samavati, Emma Thorne, Joanna Tompkins and Kimberley Brenna, created nails to fit the stylist’s androgynous theme across the various collections.

The key nail design was a clean, crisp natural nail look with randomly placed matte black feature nails on each hand. The team used Swag by Artistic Colour Revolution to create the look on half of the 28 models. The other half featured a classic, natural manicure.
