We are back with the portion of our look at two inter-related topics: runway shows and modifications made to Kate’s clothing, be they off the rack styles, or runway pieces.
We’ll start with that phenomenon known as a runway show. We are in the middle of fashion month: New York and London fashion weeks are done, and Milan is now underway, with the Paris shows closing out the cycle by the end of the month. In a February story for the Washington Post, Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion critic Robin Givhan articulates what many of us have thought after seeing video or photos from a runway show.
In one of the most dynamic runway shows last fall, Thom Browne ended his Paris presentation with a model dressed in white guiding an enormous unicorn puppet.
Two dancers, padded like marshmallows, had opened the show, flitting and twirling across the wooden floor of the majestic City Hall. In between, models crept precariously atop daunting heels in exquisite attire one could never wear to the neighborhood market.
