  • Marc Jacobs’ departure from Louis Vuitton

    Whether we had heard the rumours or not, the confirmation of Marc Jacobs’ departure from Louis Vuitton manifested in chains by a naked, LV painted Edie Campbell was enough to take our breath away. Marc dedicated the show to “the showgirl in all of us”, and it resonated beyond the beautifully ornamented collection. Presented amongst Jacobs’ fantastical sets of years past such as the fountain, the carousel and the elevators, this time all in black, it was a theatrical and inspiring show that met with a standing ovation. And very much deserved.

  • Rick Owens Tribal Dance Routine

    The most confrontational show of the season, nay, past few seasons was Rick Owens’ dance spectacular. It went far beyond the immediate shock of the stepping, the dancing and the shouts of the performers. It was a clear message set to a pulsating beat. It was more than fashion, it was a battle cry set to destroy preconceptions of fashion presentation, both body image and show-wise. Thank you, Rick, for showing so poignantly that it’s time to let go, let loose and roar.

  • Moschino, ‘I am what I am’

    The Moschino catwalk said it all. We were treated to Gloria Gaynor singing, Pat Cleveland with her arms in the air and Alek Wek making a runway return. It was fun, brash, gaudy and just exactly what fashion week needs- someone to remind us that there is life and fun in fashion and that it is what it is.

  • Jean Paul Gaultier's X-Factor

    Another moment which allowed personalities to shine and us to join in with the extravagant display of fun, was Jean Paul Gaultier’s show. A judging panel, headed by the one and only Rossy Palma, enjoyed the sights of a Greased-up Coco Rocha and a voguing Karlie Kloss, dominating the stage. In the end, we even got to enjoy JPG himself dancing and swinging his legs in a true Parisian way- c’est la vie et c’est jolie!

  • Comme des Garçons

    Rei Kawakubo, the name that resounds fashion royalty and intelligence, hit us with another complex collection this season that will see itself presented in museums. One look, one song and in total a multitude of perverse looks that challenge the mind and the eye. Through space and shape, Rei Kawakubo always transports us into another world- this time, each outfit belonged in its universe, carrying its own language of fashion power.
