Steve Hiett was an exceptional man in so many ways – the word genius doesn’t even capture or define the true talent he was. I was honored to call him a best friend, mentor, and creative collaborator.
Steve worked with us on the Vidal Sassoon film and book, and as a bonus he got really excited about doing this series of posters (included below), which, thanks to another good friend Julian Vogel, were exhibited at Somerset House in London. It seemed like the perfect spot to interview Steve and film him, although most of the time he was hiding behind photographs and things. But I think the film is really special and it’s very Steve. I think it’s such a bittersweet thing to have, so I hope you all enjoy it.
My deepest condolences to Louise Despointes, Steve’s life long companion, partner, and creative collaborator.
Thank you to Julian Vogel, Jackie Bauer, and Craig Teper for their contributions to this film.
