On 13th June 2016, Urban Retreat’s Artistic and Technical Director, Tracey Gallagher took centre stage at the final of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy 2016 to win the Men’s Image Award 2016. Following a 6 month creative journey, Tracey and the team fought off strong competition and wowed the panel of high profile judges with her stunning fashion focused look. The judging panel each agreed that Tracey had met the brief and that her model was the perfect example of a precision cut, flawless looking colour and catwalk inspired styling.
