The Most Scary Shows Ever!

1055268 John Galliano AW07 was inspired with Pigalle girls from Paris, wearing all these ornamental boudoir dresses and strong colour of red on them. From veiled streetwalkers to girls that had been dancing all night, models appeared with dripping make-up and carrying eerie broken dolls. The runway was like a fantastic dark circus- dusty and dark!1055267During the Alexander McQueen show in AW06, models wore reindeer horns on heads, nomadic inspired dresses, gothic black gowns and amazing witch coats. That was the real fantasy of McQueen’s world we love. And definitely this collection would make at a haunted castle Halloween party…1054885These knitted veils from Rick Owens AW12 collection channeled brutalism. Drawing on the classic beauty of Marlene Dietrich, a 1920’s bisexual icon who openly defied sexual norms, the model’s look was honeydew skin, coral lips and combed brows fenced by masks of gunmetal grey. Flowing volumes provided protective layers for his dominatrices whilst the silhouettes created a confusion of sinister and sexy. Relentless flames singed at the top of the runway as the models stalked the east side of Paris.1055264Iris Van Herpen Haute Couture AW11 was a mix of skeletal silhouettes and organ-like textures. Coiled intestines, brain tissue and snake dresses aided the vision of couture cyborgs, confirming the ongoing influence of anatomical, architectural and scientific structures in her space-borne collections. Still sits in some’s nightmares.1055269Gareth Pugh AW13 was a dull collection of recycled gowns with feathers, wood, trash bags… The headpieces made as shake, and the amazing deepness of darkness was a bit depressing. That’s what is called a scary Halloween couture. Costing a fortune, by the way…1050817

Bloody Mary. Thom Browne SS14

Slide01When Thom Browne presents his collection in New York for women, there is alway a feeling that real fashion, full of imagination and fun, still exists. And so was this season, that took as to a fantasy world full of ghosts and Bloody Mary! The collection just like the last one was a masterpiece. Beautiful models walked the runway in only white costumes, with lots of details, fabric variety and different style, in fantastic make-ups (the boody red lipstick looked spooky on the totally white faces of the model!) and crazy hairstyles. In other words, Thom surely got inspired with tim Burton films and read lots of fairy-tales… for giving New York a REAL fashion shock. With this, who needs Haute Couture?Slide02 Slide03 Slide04 Slide05 Slide06
