This is exactly why we love the fashion industry. In a sea of bland designers who only churn out fashions for the sake of consumerism, every now and then, one of them comes along and just J'Adores you right out of the water! That designer, season and season again, has been Mr. Alexander McQueen.
For his Fall Winter 2009 Pret-a-Porter collection, McQueen explored the concept of re-invention. He showed his own take on Dior's New Look of '47 and Chanel's tweed jacket. He pulled from his own past collections, tweaked them and sent them back out. The set was a large pile of trash, pieces from his old sets. The runway was comprised of shattered glass. Hubcaps, empty aluminum cans, umbrella and lampshades all adorned the models in the form of "accessories"....hats, hair adornments, etc.
THIS is the reason we yearned to be part of the fashion industry when we were just wee little J'Adorable fetuses! The over the top extravagance of a fashion show. The fantasy world born from within the mind of an artist. The big FUCK YOUs to an industry in the form of "look what I can do". J'Adore!!!
