TONI&GUY Breakthrough Team Xtra 2017

Thursday, 23 November 2017 15:27

TONI&GUY’s Breakthrough Team Xtra Programme is a year-long mentorship scheme that sees 12 rising stars in the TON&GUY network come together as a team to participate in out-of-salon activities.

In partnership with L'Oreal Professionnel, these activities include creative experiences such as photoshoots and assisting backstage at London Fashion Week and London Fashion Week Men’s. As their year draws to a close, they also compete for the desired Breakthrough Champions crown and pass the baton to next year’s team.

 On Tuesday evening at Porchester Hall, located in West London, the finalists came together in teams to showcase final looks to a panel of judges in front of friends, family and industry greats. All displayed show-stopping examples of cut & colour expertise, plus  Avant Garde work, however it was the team consisting of Sam Elliott (Covent Garden), Giota Chamakioti (North Audley Street), Rebecca Paulett (Shrewsury), and Alberto Di Guida (Islington) that walked away with the coveted prize. 

“Each year we have 45-50 people apply to take part in the programme as it has a reputation for being a valuable stepping stone for career progression,” commented Gary France, TONI&GUY International Artistic Director and label.m International Education Manager. “After whittling it down to a small pool of candidates there is an interview process where they are required to demonstrate creativity that delivers ‘out of the box’ concepts. They need to provide evidence of things that they have done for themselves to further their careers.”

Not only did the evening celebrate the 2017 team’s achievements, but it also introduced the industry to the next Breakthrough Team Xtra generation:

Alessandro Gennusa (Hammersmith)

Deborah Cullen (Liverpool Whitechapel)

Binesh Purja (Teddington)

Caspar Finch (Solihull)

Timea Csekekyle (South Kensington

Katie Prescott (Canary Wharf)

Danny Cowan (Bournemouth)

Tania Faenza (Canary Wharf)

Kirsty McNicoll (Birmingham)

Madeleine Mae Saunders (Valencia)

Sophie Stevens (Southampton)

Laura Everitt (Wolverhampton).
