I still don't get it, or maybe I do.....is he latent, you finish it, a child pornographer, of arrested development. He is going more and more over the edge. More than any of that, who the heck buys this stuff?

The point is attention in the fashionista press. (Subsidized by Brooks Brothers) Freaky Parisian couture has worked the same way for years, publicity. He'll be acquired by LVMH and promoted as a genius. Big bucks will be made on Eau de Thom Browne smellum.

Please excuse my lack of knowledge about those shows, but do they present anything that is actually manufactured and sold in stores or is mostly the type of thing pictured in this thread. If the latter, it seems like a giant waste of time for those attending.

I have seen photos of crazy looking outfits in women's shows, but not thought much about it as I don't begin to understand their fashions and love for things from a 'designer' nor their interest in which colors are 'in' this year and such.

Cheers, Jim.

Do these models get paid enough to have any self-respect?
Judging by the expression of every single one on the runway, Orgetorix, my guess would be no. :icon_smile_big:

Kind Regards,

Chase

Check if your local library has Deluxe, How Luxury Lost Its Lustre by Dana Thomas. Or, Google Book Search: How Luxury Lost Its Lustre will show several pages, some of which may be relevant. (Silly women with more money than sense, of the type that read slick magazines which devote the January issue to astrology and feature expensive bag ads of what appear to be '70s era tarted up Tandy Leathercraft kits...run on....)

I wouldn't call the fashion show disturbing. None of it is street legal of course, but there's no surprise. I'm a little disappointed how Browne seems to believe that the more we progress in time, the more outrageous creative expression has to be. Sad. Progression in time shouldn't mean progression in immorality. Getting back to the pictures: some guy in a dress, one in a tu tu, etc., etc., so what? I have tolerated, but not liked, mind you, cross-dressing women this far, with all their pants, suits, jeans, socks and shoes, and what have you. I am pretty sure I can tolerate some powder puffs in effeminate duds. Although, I must admit I do expect a little more out of the dominant sex.

I'm reminded of a commercial in which a runway show had an outfit that looked like a Little Bo Peep costume, with a peignoir and a knee-length skirt, complete with the big white crook. Then we see a woman wearing it to parent night at her daughter's school...

Please tell me there are still women's designers whose runway shows feature actual couture that well-dressed ladies can go in and have made bespoke.
