#1816 Kiwi hairdresser Richard Kavanagh is leading three shows at RAFW and then keeping out of the way of young stylists


Photos: Katherine Lowe Richard Kavanagh is the top ranking session stylist at RAFW. As a member of Guido’s show team, the Kiwi hairdresser regularly works backstage for houses like Marc Jacobs, Prada, Miu Miu and Calvin Klein. Here in Sydney, he’s leading three shows: Magdalena Velevska, Kooey and Arnsdorf, which walked this afternoon. “We wanted to capture the essence of a casually elegant woman who gets out of the shower, puts her hair in a wet bun and walks out the door,” he said about Arnsdorf (see the photos above and below).

Photo: Olivia Hemus Pilot Magazine Issue 5 has just hit newsstands and comes with two cover options: Emily Baker in a gamine blonde wig styled by Richard Kavanagh, and Christopher Landon in a bejewelled mask, styled by Dan Ahwa. Both are the models’ first solo covers – Baker appeared on a 1am cover with Jenny Albright and Landon appeared on a Vogue Hommes Japan cover alongside seven other boys. If I had to choose one, I’d lean towards the Emily Baker version for reasons of historic significance, though I do like how much Landon looks like James Bond villain Le
