London Fashion Week was soggy, very soggy. But it was worth it, if just for the sight of famed drag queen Jodie Harsh in the front row at Gareth Pugh. We thought we’d bring you the abridged version of our take on LFW.
Trends for Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter 2007:
Black (or gray) opaque tights worn with everything, short-as-hell hemlines, shift dresses, hats and turbans, oversized granny cardigans, cocktail dresses, metallic, PVC, neon, and platforms—to name a handful. Verdict: A bit tacky 80s and a bit glam 70s.
We say stick to the basic pieces and let the designers have their fun on the runway. Marc by Marc Jacobs, Giles, Gareth Pugh and Paul Smith all had outstanding shows, ranging from the flamboyant to the über-wearable (read: commerical). Mario Schwab has a wicked shoe collection, the best designed by Scorah Pattullo.
For all you out there on a Cheapo budget, go to London Fashion Weekend this weekend for huge discounts on designer clothes. LFWeekend begins today, February 22 and runs through Sunday, February 25.
Discounts are up to 80% off retail. You can’t go wrong. Unless you opt for PVC undies, of course.
