WHO AM I
MY NAME IS TOM GILLING
i work at Taylor Taylor in Shoreditch East London & Freelance in creative session work i.e editorial work, shows, creative film
i take influences through art, design, fashion, photography, history and literature encouraged me to learn about modern art, graphics, editorial and photography led me to combine and experiment to build concepts and to communicate through hair.
My key strengths are working with other passionate creatives in hair, fashion, photography and makeup. I look into art and history to build concepts and find inspiration for hair.
When creating an image on a shoot or a look on stage, I try to create a finished creation from head to toe; a picture, on a canvas that captures feeling and mood in an intriguing way.
Sharing and developing ideas with others is the only way to keep our industry dynamic and strong. That’s the beautiful thing about the hair and fashion industry - it’s a constant building, learning and regenerating process.
