My name is George Akkad and I am an International Creative Director. I grew up surrounded by fashion which has set the course for my career allowing me to explore creative pathways and discover the world of hairdressing viewing hair as a mouldable fabric. Today I work between BBC / Harrods as Creative Director and the session world, travelling extensively to Moscow, Milan, Paris and Dubai working on fashion shows, educational seminars and industry events. In addition to my session work I have collaborated on fashion editorials featured in international magazines such as Vogue, GQ, Elle, Maire Claire and Numéro. I have been a consultant on campaigns from Versace, Gucci, Burberry and Prada. My approach is unique in that I work with challenging ideas and I manifest these into hair. Being a Creative to me implies a constant search and desire to create new frontiers with hair. Being receptive to stimuli all around me means I can create freely using hair as my means of expression.
