Drawing on the premise of clothing as an art form, the label, Casey Tanswell, was born of a longing to present women as works of art. The female form is celebrated and enhanced with a palette of opulent fabrics, themselves a testament to art and skill.  The use of specialty fabrics and faultless fit has become a signature of Casey Tanswell pieces, designed and constructed to be both timeless and unique. Launched in 2012, the self-titled label is a melding of both an International Business and Fashion Design background, and an accumulation of European, architectural, and artistic influences.

The talented KEVIN.MURPHY team has styled the hair for Casey Tanswell’s debut runway show, her Spring Summer 14/15 ‘Circle’ presentation. Casey launched the self-titled label in 2012, and since then has been taking the fashion industry by storm, with her designs featuring in titles such as Instyle, Russh, Elle, Marie Claire, Cleo and more. The exclusive and intimate lunchtime event was held at The Apollo Restaurant in Sydney ahead of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, with a delightful presentation for both the eyes and taste buds.Co-Hair Directors James Nicolson and Lucy Lasenzaniro created a modern ‘Lady of the Lake’-inspired look for the 12 models, resulting in a dewy rope-like textured up style which had a feminine feel and complemented the statuesque garments.


1. Prime damp hair with Kevin.Murphy Staying.Alive, taking a deep parting on the left

2. Take a section at the back below the crown from ear to ear and tie off in a ponytail with an elastic just below the occipital bone

3. Working in very small sections, prep each section with a cocktail of Kevin.Murphy Super.Goo and Hair.Resort.Spray, mixed in your hands and ‘palming’ each section between the flat of your hands

4. Then, take the same sections, form a figure eight and secure with a pin curl clip

5. Continue this technique, directing hair forward on the top sections and throughout the pony tail

6.  Leave to dry

7. Removing all pin curl clips and working in front of the mirror, start to gather all of the hair from the front sections by draping them forward over the face then back low over the ears and secure over the ponytail with hat elastic

8. Take the ponytail in two sections one above and one below; tie each section into a knot without tension. Secure with hat elastic

9. Finish with Kevin.Murphy Session.Spray or Texure.Master
