Release Date: 15/05/2012Frankfurt, May 14th 2012.– Angelo Seminara (United Kingdom) was crowned absolute champion at the last edition of the AIPP GRAND TROPHY 2011-2012, becoming the second time for the prestigious hairdresser to win the most renowned award in the hairdressing industry worldwide. The first time was in the 2001-2002 edition while he was working for Trevor Sorbie. The AIPP Grand Trophy Award Ceremony was held on Sunday, May 13th at Hair&Beauty (Frankfurt), one of the most important professional events in Europe this Spring. The Ceremony was presented by Sergi Bancells, AIPP General Secretary, and Christiane Walter, Director of Hair&Beauty. Angelo Seminara was not present in Frankfurt because of a personal commitment, but his colleague Edoardo Paludo was there to collect the AIPP Grand Trophy Award on his behalf. Edoardo Paludo is the Davines' Creative Colour Director and he works very closely with Angelo.
Angelo Seminara wanted to send a message to all attendees through a filmed video, saying: "I am really, really happy to win the AIPP Grand Trophy, because it's a big achievement and a very prestigious award, recognized internationally. I'm absolutely honoured and I would like to thank Davines for their support." About 'Wonderland', the winning collection, he unveiled that "the inspiration came from the stunning fauna and colours of Costa Rica".
