>> Taylor Tomasi Hill has been captured innumerable times for her street style, but recently she sat for The Block, marking her "first experience being in front of the camera as a model. It was a bit intimidating at first."
In addition to mugging for photographer Tetsuharu Kubota's camera, Tomasi Hill explained the origins of her trademark red hair: "My mother has sported a fiery red mane for as long as I can remember. While in college, I went home to visit — with bright green streaks in my hair. She took me to the salon and asked if I wanted to try her red. An hour later I was a redhead for life." As for whether she'd ever return to her natural hair color: "I may branch out and try something else one day, but I believe I will always go back to red. My husband will occasionally mention that he would love to see me the way he met me, as a brunette, so one day I will do it for him."
She also talks about her newish gig as Sigerson Morrison's creative consultant: "I am going to be working closely with them to differentiate and refresh their two brands [Sigerson Morrison and Belle]. I’ve always been a fan, and hope that I will eventually see the collections develop into something that has my stamp and flavor."
And the other side project she's got going: "At the moment I am working with Lane Crawford’s fashion director, Sarah Rutson, to create a collection showcasing all my favorites. Pieces that are seasonless, some inspired by vintage treasures that I have had in my closet for years. One is inspired by a dress I wore to my first day on the job at W, Teen Vogue, and then Marie Claire. I will be traveling to Hong Kong in January, when the line is slated to hit shelves."
