“I hope this concept inspires stylists to appreciate new & different ways of doing things. To pause and re-think how we look to the past for inspiration to shape the future as we find new meaning in old references. I hope we can all develop contemporary theories & practices on how to better approach a lived-in precision cutting concept and how it affects all textures.” - Sam Villa
