Hussein Chalayan: Wig

A very big challenge this job, for an art project ‘I am sad Leyla‘ by Hussein Chalayan, and displayed at ‘Galerist’ in Istanbul, the team made a wig that and changed styles . Fringe  and  hair length grew  and went short again. We have layers of scull caps with to cope with the different actions.
