Charlie Le Mindu is one talented frenchman! Hairdresser come designer, Le Mindu is loved and hated by many. However nobody can dispute his undoubtable talent in hair and fashion design. Charlie first began his career as a couture hairdresser and eventually branched out as a fashion designer, being nurtured by notable fashion PR company BLOW.
Charlie has continued to shock and delight for many seasons and at many a fashion show, sending models down the catwalk in garments made from real human hair and a balaclava made from bleached rats. Charlie sure as hell doesn’t do things by halves and controversy has become as much a part of his appeal as his aesthetically beautiful creations. Most notably last year, Le Mindu sent his models out naked but for hats, hair pieces and heels at London Fashion Week!
Charlie has worked with many celebrities, such as Florence Welch from Florence and The Machine, and the queen of shocks herself Lady Gaga. Incorporating hair couture and haute couture, Le Mindu definitely has that ‘je ne sais quoi’!
